Sara Vainio

Sara is an up-and-coming actress from Malmö, who we first met and photographed in our studio back in January 2023. Studio images are always fun, but I remember hoping we’d get a chance to work with her in natural light as well. I was so happy when we settled on a Friday night in early June. Sara, Anna and I met up at Lilla Torg after I got off from my day job and basically wandered the streets, grabbing shots where we found them. I think this is the type of shoot I love the most, with minimal planning and a maximum of improvisation. I love the color contrast of the dress she chose against the backdrop of city surfaces.
