I already had the chance to have a photoshoot with Laura Sauvage, and you can see them HERE. But back then, I was just freshly recovering from my surgery, and that dat the heat made my feet swell terribly, and my acne was at the worst phase of my life (really,I was about to be «disfigured » for a few months… thank you medication !). Laura still succeeded to make me feel pretty on some shots, which I’m still very fond of.

I’m really grateful to have come across Laura, who is such a charming person. Therefore, I  jumped at the chance when I heard she was looking for models in Aix. And as you will notice, she again was able to sublime me under her objective. You will also be able to appreciate how much she evolved technically : she is definitely a photographer you need to follow, and who will keep impressing us !

There was still a long way to go to start with : I was stressedI was leaving for Clara Maeda’s fashion show in Monaco, at dawn, the next day ; I was litterally having a panic attack «  I’m-so-not-pretty-my-make-up-is-terrible-there-is-a-ladder-in-my-tights ». Consequently, a slightly negative Nella arrived late (oh how much  I hate being late on top of that !).

But Laura quickly made me feel at ease, her gentleness just shows through her pictures. She was able to transform this moment of doubt and anxiety in a superb memory. I was happy to learn that day, that Laura is gonna pursue her studies in Aix. I’m delighted to know I will then see her frequently !

What I wore: jacket, bag and gloves: vintage; blouse: american apparel; skirt: sandro; shoes: repetto.
