Hi, guys! I hope you’re all doing wonderfully and that you’re enjoying the Summer just as much as I am! I’ve had an unbelievably busy week, but I managed to photograph a lot of the things and places I visited, so I thought I would share the photos with you!
Since my four year old sister, Gabs, was with me, I had some fun with her at our beach house.

I met Sofia a few years back, when we were doing our first NaNoWriMos. We talked online, occasionally, and finally got to be face to face at last year’s Tumblr Meet, here in Porto. She’s a wonderful friend and I was ridiculously excited when she told me, a couple of months ago, that she was spending a weekend here with her boyfriend — and that they wouldn’t mind it if I took some pictures.

I’ve decided to use this blog more often, to give you backstage pictures of my shoots, of other commercial-type works that I do and to answer questions. Feel free to drop me a word at my ask box with any questions or suggestions you might have!
For a while now, I’ve been wanting to do a color-based series. I ended up starting it accidentally, last week, with my butterfly shot — the accidental orange theme of the photo prompted me to think about more and more ways to base portraits on color.
I did a couple of attempts for the red; I tried with wool, with my gymnastics ribbon, with lipstick. And then last weekend, I was finishing lunch and it came to my mind: cherries. It took me forever to get them to stay in my hair (bobby pins are a godsend!) and to walk very softly to my grandmother’s bed, where I took the pictures. But I think it was worth it. Below, you have a few of the outtakes.
^ taking photos in my grandmother’s room is a guarantee that I’ll have at least four saints looking at me, including a Baby Jesus. I like them.
