 New editorial out in Flanelle Magazine
Stylist: Ūla Urbonavičiūtė
Make up: Ema Vasiliauskaitė
Model: Gintarė Jareckaitė @ Ruta model management

  it's a story about a girl who is different, dreams of castles and faraway lands, but has a hard time fitting in with the other kids. She tries to look cool pretending to be like them, but is too shy, so just watches them playing games from afar.

I tried something different that I'm not going to try again. Sometimes I get so tired of putting proper editorials together, the ones that I want to make props for and tell magical stories. It takes so much energy to do everything and in the end it's usually still not as I wanted it to turn out. A lot of times I want to shoot just with the person I'm taking pictures of, something not planned, just go out there and explore.. This one was easy to me in that way, I didn't really have to prepare a lot and all the preparation work was on the stylist (thank you, Ūla!)
Still, even if I enjoyed shooting this, I look at it and it's so not me. I'm going to focus more on stories that feels more personal and mine.
