The Nanny

The Nanny

If I wanted to I could make a set called Dogs and their owners, and who knows, I might just do that some day. This is Maria. I noticed her in Handen today, near the mall. She was on her way out with her dog Luna, but had time to pose for a few quick portraits. As you can guess by the title Maria works as a nanny, or a barnflicka as one Swedish title would be. When she's not busy walking her dog, or nannying those kids, she's very likely to spend some time at the gym, working out. And that seems to be working just fine, as she really looks very fit. As does her dog, who really wasn't interested in posing for the photographer.

Very nice portrait, Steffe. She seems on the move even when she's standing still for you.

Nice-looking nanny! You don't seem to have the same "way" with dogs that you do with women, Steffe! Heh, heh!

So it looks like your Moo cards are working very well for you! :)

I'm running out of cards actually. I have probably given away 400 cards over the last two years. Dogs can be tricky sometimes, I guess there's more interesting things to do then pose for a nutty photographer!

Dogs may be tricky but the owners are often interesting...

Nice portrait of the barnflicka and her dog! Don't you sometimes say "au-pair" too? Talking about her dog was a good way for you to meet that babe, Steffe!

Nice models and a nice shot!:-)

That's a good observation Mr.Poet.


Au-pairs usually live with the family where they work. That is not the case here.

Thanks Gunn.
