Rosalind

Miss Rosalind Jana from Clothes Cameras and Coffee blog, aged 17 years and 2 months, London, August 2012

A little shoot I did with Roz back in the summer. These photographs are, for me, a celebration of being a teenager: having braces on your teeth, banged up knees and a patchwork of bandaids on your heels*.....with an entire lifetime ahead to follow dreams and make new ones ;)

The wonderful Jessica Meija did an amazing job on Roz's hair and make-up (she makes pretty look even prettier!).

All of Rosalind's clothes for the shoot were vintage from her wardrobe with the exception of the beautiful lace dress which was Alice by Temperley's Kitty dress from My-Wardrobe.com

*actually that still applies to me now! I am the bandaid queen ;)

  1. I've just finished replying to Rosalind and suddenly, here I see you've captured her essence -- youthful and pretty, yet thoughtful, not frivolous. Beautiful!

  3. Lovely photos! She is a beautiful girl, I love the natural feel and simplicity of it all (the outfits, garden, sitting with a book by the window)... Just lovely.

  6. Such stunning photographs, Vanessa! I love the ethereal quality and Roz looks absolutely wonderful! I also love what you said about the shoot; it being a "celebration of being a teenager". I think, as well as the calm, oneiric beauty, there is also an element of hopefulness; pursuing something, but "going with the flow" whilst doing so... I ramble ever so much!

    Best Wishes,

    Tara

  7. Honestly some of the most beautiful pictures ever. Ros looks like a Pre-Raphalite muse, sister of Lizzie Siddal. Exquisite.

  9. I've recently discovered your blog, and this post just made me feel in love with it even more. I've had my braces off for about 5 years but I still feel self-conscious when I think about taking pictures with them. For my brother's wedding I smiled with my mouth closed the entire time!
    These pictures are just so refreshing, so honest, and evoke a stage of youthful innocence that you don't get to see much of anymore. It reminds me of how I was at 17.

    Lovely work!
