A «FRUITY» INSPIRATION ON THE ISLAND OF CRETE WITH A VINTAGE FEEL

April 2, 2021

This portrait inspiration, took place at the beautiful island of Crete on a top of a hill that I love! I have always wanted to shoot there, since it is a spot where I like watching the sunset and enjoying some red wine. The olive trees in combination with the dry landscape, create a scenery that is unique. A lot of people say that Crete is a strong reminder of Tuscany and I cannot agree more! Olive trees, cypresses, dry landscape and sunsets that are always so beautiful!

This photo session, I wanted to be a single girl session, so the feeling that creates to be strong. I used a vintage 70’s dress, that my mother was wearing on her wedding day as a second look during reception. Is a peach coloured silky dress with beautiful details. The scarf is also vintage at the same colour palette. Shoes and hat are brand new, but they couldn’t be a better match with the dress, since it gives a modern touch to the session so it won’t look old fashioned. Last but not least, the fruit basket I used, that has complimented many images. I used this -instead of a fancy bouquet, because I wanted something different to compliment the shoot. I think it gave a feeling that if the girl was on a picnic day.

Shooting that time of the day, couldn’t be a better way to catch some early summer light, that can make you feel more positive and thankful for everything you have in life!
Hope you like it!
