A memorable and stunning outdoor lifestyle Engagement session in the snowy desert.
In between the beautiful Christmas decorations I met Naty Ashba, Lifestyle, Beauty and Fashion Blogger based in Las Vegas. Since we both speak Italian, we connected and we are doing various a few photoshoots together. While Naty has done many photoshoots in her life, this interview is meant as tips and suggestions for women who have never done a boudoir, beauty or even a portrait photoshoot before.

When Alex suggested a Tango photoshoot I immediately wanted to plan it! I danced Argentinian Tango back in Italy and in the UK and I always loved it, so I was excited at prospect of framing the beautiful lines of this dance but also the connection between the dancers, their feeling and their moods. Tango shows so many human emotions and connections between two people. It is a special language of its own.
This summer when I was in my town of Trieste, in Italy, I had the pleasure of visiting an exhibition entitled 'The Secret Rooms of Vittorio Sgarbi'. Sgarbi is a famous Italian art historian and art critic. He always liked Trieste for his art and historical inheritance, and we were lucky enough to have him showcase part of his private collection and art foundation in our city, including a large segment of artists from Trieste itself. Between such artists, he acquired and displayed paintings from both my grandmother and grandfather; Mirella Schott Sbisà and Carlo Sbisà.
One of the first steps for my photoshoots is to find a way to personalize them for my clients. What are your passions and lifestyle? What is meaningful to you?
In the case of Grettel, fruits and flowers are meaningful to her, since she is from Costa Rica. The colors and the process of using the props made the shoot fun and natural. See the results here!
I finally got the courage to publish the photos. My main drive in doing so was to show a commitment to my clients and to overcome the worry about attracting attention and being noticed. It’s unusual for me to be placed on the other side of the camera lens and the experience helped me to appreciate a lot of the concerns that my clients must often feel.
