VISITE PRIVÉE







































continues to satiate my never-ending love affair

with Parisian apartments...

SPRING SENTIMENTS























Not quite ready to part with

 a pair of rugged boots when going outside

& grey woollen socks to truly feel "I'm home",











but also mad about 

anemones

& spring skies.



[ And a bit of fancy stationery

& Ásgeir's husky voice,

especially when he chants in Icelandic.]












And the way the sun chooses to dapple

a corner here, another one there,

lingering later and later with each passing day,

beckoning from the shadows.

FRIDAY RITUALS





























Today my Friday has been as in theory my Fridays should be

- a walk to the neigbouring block 

for a session of morning pilates,

a fresh croissant from the lovely local shop

with its black-and-white chequered floor,

back home to brew some coffee on the stove,

quietly beginning my work

in a peaceful house.

Nothing extraordinary I guess,

but it sure is good to land

in a quiet place every now and then. 

From now on,

I'll need to keep a firmer grip of these. 





P.S. 

Glimpsed in the last photo,

coffee time 

poring over the bread book

by local patisseries Teemu & Markus,

photographed by talented Anton Sucksdorff.

Tänään pitkästä aikaa sellainen perjantai

kuin olen perjantaipäivistäni teoriassa kaavaillut

- aamupilates korttelin päässä,

tuore voisarvi mustaruutulattiaisesta lähikaupasta,

kotona kahvi tulelle

ja rauhaisan keskittyneesti töiden ääreen

hiljaisessa kodissa. 

Ei mitään sen ihmeempää kai,

mutta juuri tällaista sielu välillä kaipaa. 

Jatkossa varjelen näitä hyppysissäni.





P.S. Alimmassa on kahvilukemisena

Teemun ja Markuksen leipäkirja,

jonka hienot kuvat ovat taitavan 

Anton Sucksdorffin kädenjälkeä.

LITTLE MINNA















“Sometimes since I've been in the garden 
I've looked up 
through the trees at the sky 
and I have had a strange feeling 
of being happy 
as if something was pushing and drawing in my chest 
and making me breathe fast. 
Magic is always pushing and drawing 
and making things out of nothing. 
Everything is made out of magic, 
leaves and trees, 
flowers and birds, 
badgers and foxes 
and squirrels and people. 
So it must be all around us." 

Frances Hodgson Burnett: The Secret Garden

MINNA, BEHIND-THE-SCENES

















This past week I had the 

pleasure and absolute honour

to shoot Minna's delicate children's collection,

and I wanted to share some behind-the-scenes glimpses with you.














Our home was filled with little rosy-cheeked girls

in floaty, lace dresses,

flowers and sunlight,













beautiful Minna Hepburn herself, 

who had flown over from England,












and my dear friend Tanja 

helping with flowers & dresses & setups.










A dream team,

left with a hunger for more. 




Now busy guzzling the coffee

and going through final edits -

I'll share some more in this space very soon.













Viime viikolla minulla oli ilo ja valtava kunnia

valokuvata Minna-lastenmallisto kotonani.


Halusin heti jakaa vähän behind-the-scenes -otoksia.

Iltapäivä oli tulvillaan punaposkisia tyttösiä

valkoisissa pitsimekoissaan,

kukkia ja valoa.


Minna Hepburn itse lennähti paikalle Englannista,

ja ympärillä hääräsi myös rakas ystäväni Tanja,

joka sitoi kimppuja, napitti mekkoja

ja lainasi visuaalista silmäänsä.


Unelmatiimi,

nälkä jäi tehdä lisää.


Nyt mutteripannu porisee ahkerasti

käydessäni lopullista kuvasatoa läpi -

lisää ihan pian.

HELSINKI COFFEE FESTIVAL


















































Thought I'd share some shots I took on Friday


taking the town by storm this weekend. 

Such a lovely hangout 

for coffee lovers to unite. 

Spending an afternoon with the camera

while downing the black magic

was quite a treat! 






Tänä viikonloppuna Kattilahallin valtasi


jossa oli ilo olla kuvaamassa 

kahvin ryystämisen lomassa.

Vielä ehtii mukaan,

jos vauhdilla kipittää.
