Backstage: “Makeupartistas feat. Chaperdonna” shoot

Backstage make up photo

{Make up stop}

I have always been a big fan of backstage photos and sneak peeks I feel that knowing what is happening behind the camera, is like discovering a new world; and since this is one of my favourite parts of a shoot I thought that I should give you all a small backstage taste of what took place back in August.

Location: Milies, Pelion, Greece.

Eίμαι λάτρης του παρασκηνίου, πάντα ήθελα να ξέρω τι γίνεται πίσω από τα φώτα! Νομίζω ότι γνωρίζοντας τι γίνεται πίσω από τις κάμερες ανακαλύπτω ένα νέο κόσμο. Και μιας και αυτό ειναι ένα από τα αγαπημένα μου κομμάτια μιας φωτογράφισης σας χαρίζω μια μικρή γεύση από την πολύ όμορφη μέρα που περάσαμε τον Aύγουστο.

Μέρος: Μηλιές Πηλίου, Ελλάδα.

Makeupartistas feat. Chaperdonna

IMG_train tracks_text

This beautiful journey of blogging is a road that you really don’t know where it will take you. So far It has brought me in touch with some very talented people and I feel so lucky when collaborations like this one happen. This time I had the privilege to work with Nikos Pal putting together a lovely photo shoot for the Star Shining Collection 2013 of Chaperdonna , a lovely new hand-made clothes brand designed with love and respect for fashion and the female silhouette.

So on a summer day my good friend and photographer Nikos Pal who I have previously collaborated with here, and here brought his creative head, Ilenia Douladiri aka Chaperdonna brought her amazing designs and I followed on with my make up case to create for you this dreamy shoot celebrating femininity in a unique way.

Aυτό το ταξίδι ομορφιάς που έχει ξεκινήσει είναι ένας δρόμος που ακόμα δε ξέρω που θα βγάλει. Για την ώρα είναι το όχημα που με έχει φέρει σε επαφή με ταλαντούχους ανθρώπους και νιώθω πολύ τυχερή για κάθε συνεργασία. Αυτή τη φορά είχα τη τύχη να συνεργαστώ με τον Nikos Pal για τη φωτογραφιση της Star Shining Collection 2013 της Chaperdonna, μια νέα μάρκα χειροποίητων ρούχων σχεδιασμένα με αγάπη και σεβασμό προς τη γυναικεία σιλουέτα.

‘Ετσι μια μέρα του καλοκαιριού ο καλός μου φίλος και φωτογράφος Nikos Pal όπου έχουμε ξανασυνεργαστεί στο παρελθόν εδώ και εδώ, έστησε τις μηχανες του, η Ιλένια Δουλαδίρη aka Chaperdonna έφερε τις δημιουργίες της κι εγώ συνέβαλα με το βαλιτσάκι του μακιγιάζ και όλοι μαζί δημιουργήσαμε αυτό το ονερικό αποτέλεσμα γιορτάζοντας τη θυληκότητα της κάθε γυναίκας με ένα μοναδικό τρόπο.

Flash back to the past

What we are living now is because of what we have lived in the past. Whatever we are capable of doing now and in the future is only because of what we learned and what we experienced in our past.

Love your past and long for your future.

From the past, me on my first professional photo shoot.

Throw back Tuesday – Sister

Oh yes! It is that type of week.. looking back, reflecting and then looking forward. Because only when you have reflected on your past you can appreciate what the future is about to give you. My visit to Greece, was so busy with lots of things to do, lots of faces to catch up with and lots of food memories to take with me. I finally got to catch up with my sister, which I don’t get to see very often. A walk down Volos marina turned out to be the perfect catwalk for my beautiful, bohemian and always elegant styled sister, Maria.

And here she is.

Life is a beach

15th August

Whoever is from Greece knows that this is a big celebration day which you usually spent away from the city and usually near a beach.

Life has it and I am at rainy Dublin which was today hit by a hurricane!

As you have all guessed I am going through my holiday blues. These photos will definitely cheer me up, I hope they will do the same to you, especially dedicated to those that were working today and are quite a long way from a beach.
