Don’t you want me baby?

There were plenty of shoots that day that Ava refers to as ‘meme photos’. I thought I’d share them with you guys so we can all laugh at them. They’re unedited and completely un-airbrushed. *Shocker* Yes, I airbrush my photos.

This is probably the only time I've come close to looking relatively tall-ish.

This is probably the only time I’ve come close to looking relatively tall-ish. It was my poor attempt to do a ballerina pose. 

 

The amount of times I tried jumping to get this shot which we didn't even use, for obvious reasons.

I’m a real boy.

 

Catch me if you can?

Lola: "Everyone's doing this pose. I wanna try." Ava: "You just look awkward and weird"

Lola: “Everyone’s doing this Drake pose. I wanna try. I just know you get on your knees and pretend to pray “ Ava: “You just look awkward and weird” Lola: “I’m probably not even doing it right. Ok allow this.” 

 

This one isn't actually an embarrassing shot.

Brap Brap. What kills me, is the woman inside the house.

Your local badman feat random woman staring from inside the house.

 

I was literally balancing on the front part of my boots here so it could've been a cool shot if I looked decent.

Omg this is literally me all the time. My nose is blocked/runny all throughout Winter and then in Spring and Summer it's runny again because of hay fever so I'm literally wiping my nose all the time and trying to breathe. It's also the reason why my make up on the tip of my nose and my upper lip wipes off before I've left the house, thanks to tissues.

Something between the 'checking you out' face and creepy.

I thought I should just add these two photos, taken from other shoots, just to top it all off. They’re about a year apart. The first one, for some reason I thought I could get on that thing. If I had pushed myself to go further, I would’ve fallen down the other side and broken a leg or something. The second one is a small fence but I’m the least flexible person out there so even getting over that is a mission for me.

Nomani

My jumper reflects my current situation- “Ain’t Got Nomani”– so it’s probably ideal to post it now.

Autumn Leaves

A shoot I did with Ava in the Autumn around Kings Cross. Never thought I’d own a denim skirt again after I threw my last one out when I was 14 but hey, nothing ever goes out of style forever.

The Trench Coat

I finally managed to edit the photos from the October/November shoot I did with my friends Yasmin Harding and Phillip McGee. The inspiration behind it came from my love for the classic Burberry trench coats but obviously, a student budget can probably only get me a button so the replacements we found will do.

With all these attacks and killings going on in the world right now, it felt bad posting anything. Nothing felt right to post and instead I’ve been feeling unsafe everywhere I go. But I thought it’s time to post these photos before the Winter weather approaches since we took them in early Autumn (yes, I know, I’m always late with posting blog photos).

P.S. I have this condition called ‘crow-hands’ where my hands don’t know what to do with themselves in photos so they just kinda hang around in a lifeless manner.

National Anthem

Ava and I did this shoot back in September but I never really had the chance to edit and post them. So, here they finally are! I don’t really get inspired by much when it comes to dressing up. I tend to dress in whatever mood I’m feeling. That day, I felt like a president’s wife…Jackie Kennedy perhaps. Ironically I had Lana Del Rey’s song National Anthem stuck in my head whilst editing which is quite frankly about Jackie Kennedy’s love for John.F.Kennedy. The filters and effects for each photos is pretty much different because I don’t like every photo to have the same filter so it’s not my poor editing skills, I purposely played around with Photoshop.

Deep into thought whilst being blinded by the sun. Sunglasses didn't really help.

Brother’s Tracksuits

So my younger brother outgrew these tracksuit bottoms and was planning to throw them out until I saved them. I’m a sucker for comfy clothes. Especially if they used to be owned by my brother, father, Stefan (who I’ve managed to steal two hoodies from so far) or boyfriend. I really don’t know why? They’re just more comfy.

I was so comfortable in these trackkies that I decided to head out to Camden in them. This is a brave move for someone like me, however, I’m beginning to appreciate the “homeless” look more. In fact, I quite like this look, if I do say so myself *Jay-Z voice*

(Thank you Stefan Prosenica for dealing with the struggles of getting a photo for my blog)
