Sugar Plums

Carousel by Sabrina Cichy

Photographer: Sabrina Cichy, Model: Lotte Groeneweg

I awoke this morning, with nothing but forecasted scenes of a mad dash into the mall for last minute stocking stuffers dancing in my head.  Before coffee, even, I checked my email, bank account (eep!), and finally Etsy, half-heartedly paying attention to the notifications since I favorited about twenty dozen or so Edwardian mourning dresses last night.  And there, sitting quietly in my inbox, not making even a sound, was a message from a photographer so renowned!

A little while back, I had the pleasure of working with a glamorous and vintage vixen on a fairytale tutu skirt for a shoot.  Lotte Groeneweg, a professional model based out of Amsterdam (lucky girl!) who exudes Grace Kelly-like beauty with her classic expressions and timeless postures, plays on the exotic side with costuming, props, and color pops.  She is in one word, enchanting.  In her own words:

“I started modeling early 2008, and was instantly hooked. I did all kinds of different shoots: fashion, pinup, beauty, fetish, lingerie, alternative, commercial and anything in between.  Now, three years  later, I still can not say I have one favorite style in modeling and I feel that there is always more for me to  explore.”

Needless to say, precisely ten days after the shoot, the photographer sent me these incredible photos.  Sabrina Cichy, an off-the-charts photographer from West Germany, has an unprecedented talent for creating whimsical nostalgia with her photos by use of candy color pops, ethereal lighting, and slightly off-kilter composition.  Not to mention how she skillfully captures that precarious moment between innocence and innocence lost.  I believe that every girl should have a photographer like Sabrina Cichy following them around, capturing them in a world constructed by their own imagination.

I neglected to mention that Sabrina also creates cinemagraphs – my favorite new artform.
