The skogsra are beautiful forest spirits living in the  skandinavian woods in a nordic folklore.  These irresistible creatures are best known for leading men astray deep into the woods with their seductive yet innocent beauty. They look like a women from the front but their backs are just a hollow tree trunk. Often they also have a tail.  They  combs or play with their long hair  and make the poor fellas follow them deep into the woods. Once there they turn their back on them and the men find themselfes alone and lost and many will never find their way back home again.. 

This was the story that inspired us for this fashion shoot. We shot this at the coolest location in Abney park cemetery in east London.  The cemetery is old and gravestones are in many places put on top of each other in a mess and the graves are  surrounded by trees and bushes. There was also an old ruined building in the middle of the park we used for one set of images. 

We were lucky with the weather. It was a bit chilly but the rain stayed away even though it looked like it was gonna come down on us a few times. I worked with a team I have done a shoot with before and it is always great fun to do so. 

Big thanks to the friendly staff and especially the duty manager Sue at the Sunstone health & Leisure centre in Stoke Newington for lending us their changing room to get ready when our planned location failed. Through their kindness and quick respond we could make the models ready for the first shot comfortable inside. Sunstone is a massive 5 floor women only facility with lots of different activities to promote health , fitness and wellbeing of women.

This last location are some kind of massive resting place for someone important I would imagine. It felt like a sacrificing spot and suited our last much bolder look.

Georginas Snake Sebastian is Big, Strong & Beautiful. He is 16 months old and a Burmese albino python. He is comfortably wrapped around  Georginas neck on most of her performances.  There is no doubt that he loves Georgina and it’s amazing to see the connection between them . Sebastian got his name in honour after a good friend of Georgina that sadly passed away just a week before she got him.  

Snakes are cold-blooded animals which means they adapting their body temperature to their surroundings and Sebastian is surrounded by so much warmth and love that his blood must for sure be  warm by now . : ) 

Even though I enjoyed taking all images we shot the day of the pet shoot these are my absolute favourites.  From first time i meet Sebastian until now he has really grown on me and though I would not go as far as adding snakes as my number one pets I am definitely seeing them in another light. 

Strong & Beautiful.
