the mermaid and the light

the mermaid and the light — series of three

Taken in the beautiful beaches of Porto Santo with the wonderful help of my aunt Maria, who was patient enough to have me making her a human tripod and ordering her around.

"Left! Right! No, point it further up. No, not so much!"

She's a saint, for putting up with me.

This is a series of three, assembled because of their common aesthetics (read blur). I have a couple more series to post, but the one I'm posting as main was my favorite, and therefore shall be the first.


because the mermaid is still looking at the light.


let me know what you think of it?


  1. so beautiful and magical. i love the light and the softness <3

    1. Thanks, dear! The softness of it is what made me decide to post it, I was really pleased with it, too. :)

  2. the dress you wore makes this series more unique and beautiful !♥

    1. It's actually a skirt! I've used it for countless shoots, I'd be lost without it! I'm glad you like it! Thanks for commenting!
