Laura, one year after our first little shooting at the lake.

Long deep black hair, perfect make-up and big oversized t-shirts. Laura (Giulia’s twin sister) knows exactly what she wants and likes to wear, to do and to listen to. Her rocker, dark attitude (which of course I find irresistible) is soften by her sweet eyes and her sweet face. She’s the one who truly likes to experiment stuff in the beauty/hair department: she dyed her hair multiple times, she had one side of her head totally white and the other one totally black, she shaved part of her hair and so on. I respect you girl.

I’m wandering if she will stay true to this hip-hop guyish vibe or if I’ll start seeing her on high heels and A-line skirts soon. That should be FUN.

Giulia is the protagonist of the second August series of pics. She and her sister Laura are twins, and I remember I couldn’t tell each other apart when they were younger. Now, at sixteen years old, they developed a different personality and a very different style, but their features will always tell you the truth.

Here you can see Giulia caught completely “off guard”, no make-up, college socks and a big grey jumper. Just as simple and perfect as you could imagine a teenager during a lazy Summer afternoon by the pool. Her nonchalant, accidental nineties style immediately conquered me.

Dress by forte_forte

This August I spent one week at my husband’s house at the gorgeous Lake of Garda. Unfortunately the weather was so bad that we were forced to stay inside and find all kinds of recreational activities like board games, cards, cooking banana breads and croissants, reading books and magazines of all sorts and so on.

Lucky for me I had my camera and I could herass my husband’s teen cousins for days. Three sisters, so similar and yet so different one from the other in character and style, I’m so curious to see them grow up and evolve. I guess I’ll be there shooting them every Summer.

First of this August batch is Martina, the eldest. Twenty years old and a smile that could (and probably would) conquer the world. I love how her tattoos clash with the romantic forte_forte baby blue pleated dress. Enjoy.

Blackhair’s analog pics

In 2 days I’ll be leaving for New York Fashion Week (yay!) and be reunited with my wonderful cousin Federica who lives there (double yay!). We shot these pics during Christmas holidays featuring these amazing Jil Sander white boots and Trussardi wide leather pants and it was incredibly warm compared to the -12 I’ll find in NY City.

Alice on the countryside around Manerba del Garda this Summer. So cute.

Blackhair’s pics

Alice is the daughter of Andrea (my husband’s cousin) and Anna (who looks a lot like Hanne Gaby Odiele, you hear me?), so I don’t know what this makes her to me, niece? Little cousin? Never understood how these things work. Well, Alice has already a thing for being shot at, she looks straight in the lens and she smiles, happy to be photographed. And it’s always rewarding, because she’s already beautiful with her pale blue eyes and her sweet complexion.

Blackhair’s pics

My cousin Federica (Chicca) works at Columbia University in New York, which besides of being the coolest thing to do and the coolest place to live is also SO far away from us.

We grew up together and we love each other a lot, we spent some amazing holidays together, a road trip in Greece, a no-sleep week in Puertorico and New York of course, which are amongst my most cherished memories. So when she came back for Spring break after a conference in Spain, we took the chance to spend some time together and shoot some pics in our garden (yes, “our garden” beacuse we lived practically in the same house for let’s say 20 something years).

Now she’s gone again, but Summer will take her back to Italy and to our garden, in the meantime I’ll prepare my camera.

Caterina Ravaglia is a young promising Italian model (Elite Models). Italians are like this, we get excited very easily by seeing our countrymen and women being successful and becoming famous, so when I saw Caterina for the first time in Lazzari’s 2009-2010 lookbook I was struck by her weird beauty, and later I was superhappy to discover she was Italian, from Ravenna and starting to really rock the fashion world. Faces like hers are much more interesting and charming than perfect “little French nose” ones (and I say it not only because I’m part of the club!)

In London during last Fashion Week I saw her a lot on the catwalks and I think designers will love her more and more.
Wish her all the luck in the world!
