Pixie Dusted! The beautiful Lílian Morita shines for the photoshoot!

Many months ago, I shot the lovely Lílian Morita at Arthur Thomas Park, here in my city, Londrina. She is a make up artist and a friend.

I found this spot when by chance I noticed a hidden path among the trees. Also hidden, was a sign stating that access was forbidden. But the path was well marked along the trail, and indeed, the banning of the access was a silly measure, it’s really beautiful there.


Há já alguns meses eu fotografei a fofíssima Lílian Morita no Parque Arthur Thomas, aqui na minha cidade, Londrina. Ela é maquiadora e minha amiga.

Eu encontrei esse lugar por acaso, quando notei uma trilha escondida no meio das árvores. Também escondida, estava uma placa dizendo que o acesso era proibido. Mas o caminho estava bem marcado na trilha, e realmente, a proibição do acesso é uma medida muito tola, é muito bonito por ali.

This first photo is one of my favorites. She is looking gorgeous, the scenery and composition are quite something too 😉


Essa primeira foto é uma das minhas favoritas. A Lílian está maravilhosa, e o cenário e a composição não estão mals, não 😉

The one thing I am not too happy about this photoshoot, is that I allowed a few poses to look too similar. I must pay more atention to that.

Have a great day, everyone! 😉

    This is in response to your Flickr posting. You are a very talented photographers I enjoy your artistic approach to each photoshoot you do. You should not be upset that someone is studying your style and trying to learn from the greats…. We all study important artist in order to improve our craft. I challenge you to photograph models that are not so “beautiful”. A series that will challenge your style and creativity. Maybe then people will start paying you.
    I truly love your work. You are a natural. Keep it up!

  4. Thank you guys! 🙂

    Brehl, for more than once I have tried to bring this challenge to myself. The problem is that “not so beautiful” girls don’t feel confident or comfortable being photographed. I had one almost do it, but she backed off just a few hours before the arranged photoshoot.

    Well, study other photographers work everyone does, and it’s healthy to one’s creativity too. But go to the same place, try to copy the poses and proposal of a photoshoot is not the way to go.

    Hi Anna. What a beautiful series of photo’s. I love all the work you do. You are so creative and professional. No wonder you’ve got so many copycats around you. Keep doing what you do best!


  6. Imitation is the highest form of flattery 🙂 Unfortunately many of those people who imitate make this flattery not so enjoyable 🙂 Be prepared: more recognizable you are, more people will try to imitate your style. But you can deliver consistent output – that’s your advantage 🙂

    I like Brehl’s challenge! You wrote: “not so beautiful” girls don’t feel confident or comfortable being photographed. Well… that’s the challenge! 🙂 Following you for a while I can say I’m sure you can do that 🙂
    Besides, this might be a good idea if you want more people to hire you. Right now they may think you’re “out of their world”, because most of your subjects are beautiful girls. I can easily imagine it can be intimidating.

    Wish you all the best! Keep up good work! 🙂 I really enjoy watching your photos but also reading your comments/descriptions, because you show that you’re not a heartless craftsman but a sensitive artist 🙂

    • Pawel, there are some girls that some would consider not so beautiful that have expressed interest in posing for me. But all of them said that they first “need” to loose some weight.

      No matter how much I tell them that they look great and that I’ll get photos with an angle like this or like that, they don’t feel good about their bodies, thus they don’t want to be photographed.

      That is quite sad for women in our society these days, but I suffered with self-image issues too, for a long long time, so I know the feeling.

      • I’m not saying it’s easy – that’s why it’s a challenge. In many cases it is very difficult or impossible to convince. But keep trying! I’m sure you’ll develop a few “tricks” to make many of them do what you want 🙂
        Take care!

    I think I like the first shot best, like you said yourself.
    Wonderful work Anna, you really brought out the best in your model and your talent radiates off the screen.

  8. Ken Timbers says:

    You have really made the most of your time with this pretty model, AnnA, and it shows in a portfolio of excellent photographs. Like others here, I’m not surprised that there are people trying to copy your work and I’m sure that, for a professional photographer, that must be annoying. But your talent shines through and those who want and appreciate quality will know that it pays to buy the best you can afford – in this life, you get what you pay for, and if you want quality, you have up the ante!
    Keep your standards high – it will pay off eventually. The sooner the better! 🙂

  9. Anna,they are all amazing… The first one is definitely my favourite! I think its because the main focus for me is on the feeling of the photograph and emotion, rather than the models face.. (But she is stunning by the way!) Your work is great, you are full of talent and I always look forward to seeing a new post. All the best!

    Special Sunshine Anna,

    You, are an original. That is enough for me. Your photogaphy will continue to rise above the norm and recognition will follow and be sustained.

    Then, you shall ascend to monumental heights, move to America, become well-to-do and famous across this land. Thereafter I shall worship you and feed you grapes and delicacies by hand, whilst waving palm fronds over you so as to cool and soothe your lovely self.

    Tee, hee.


  11. Sam says:

    Lovely series! The fact that you took it in a banned place adds to the mystique!

  12. Ramón says:

    I really love your photos,
    they are very beautiful!
    and I am your #1 Fun!

  16. Very nice photoshoot. I like your simple yet striking portfolio.

  17. Thank you so much, everyone! I really appreciate it! 🙂

  18. so beautiful photos!! i like the bamboo series 🙂

    have a nice w/e!!

    Amateur models with less then perfect bodies can’t make all poses work. So you will find that you are confined to a few really successful angles and positions. This one has a superphotogenic face and can also make certain poses work well, like the bamboo ones. Other positions don’t suit them and you have to have a workaround to make these work for them. You did very well to make this an almost perfect shoot with her and made good use of those amazing backgrounds.

    You are definitely an original. The effort you put into a shoot or a pic is astonishing. Keep doing what you do best.

  21. Amazing work. You took a beautiful individual and made them look even more gorgeous. That is the sign of a photographer who knows their craft, and is willing to put the time and effort into their work.

    I look forward to seeing more of your work.
