The Lovely Emma

Coffee at Malmens

Mamma ♡

Showing a bit of leg

I have been shooting a lot of portraits lately of people that used to be strangers to me. Because once I have photographed someone I usually see them all the time. And when I do I often ask if I can take another portrait. And find out what has happened in their life since we last met. So this is Emma. You first met her back in November. Since then I have met her at Malmens cafe a couple of times. Emma's friend Matilda has moved away from Haninge so these days she often hangs with a new friend (not seen here). So while Emma and her sister where having coffee and cigarettes at one table I sat at the next table talking with my friend Jim, while taking a bunch of photos of Emma and her tattoos. She told me they are all about her family. And i really like the Mamma tattoo.

I like this!!:) Different and even closer than before.
Du er modig! Jeg har deg som forbilde ang. det å henvede deg helt ukjente folk, få dem til å slappe av og så ta bilder de aksepterer, sier YES, de kan publiseres. Det er tidlig morgen. ..... Jeg klarer ikke tenke på engelsk før min første kopp kaffe er drukket.
Keep shooting..... Ha en fin dag. Send litt sol vest over.

Looks like she did that one herself.

Very intimate shots, Steffe. Your camera likes her very much as a subject.

Sol och väldigt varmt här idag igen Gunn.


I do enjoy taking photos of Emma. I met her again today at the cafe. She was there with her new room mate, so I joined them for a chat, and some more photos of both the girls and a friendly pitbull!

She's more than beautiful, but I'm not a tattoos fan...

She appears so relaxed. As was the photographer, I suppose. So, what's the secret - one might ask. Don't answer that one. I already know. Practice-practice-practice.

She's a very attractive young lady. But I just don't get the tattoos!
