Once upon a time it was summer in Finland and I decided to create a body paint with her... A few weeks ago I started my Seasons-series. I thought it would be my way to celebrate and honour the 100th anniversary of my home country. Beautiful Finnish nature and art.
Stay for a moment (2017) / Viivy vielä hetki
Artist: Riina Laine
Model: Jane Suvanto
Soon it will be autumn then... ;)
A few weeks ago I had one of the most memorable photoshoots - I had a chance to paint stunning pin-up and tattoo artist Sini Ariell for the Finnish daily newspaper Iltalehti. She is pregnant on her first child and glowing happiness. It was such an honour to share the day with her and our whole team, so much joy and good vibes that I felt I was flying afterwards.
Check out these results of that day! Aren't these photos just perfect with that summery happy mood!

Raskaana oleva Sini Ariell upeissa bodypaint-kuvissa: ”Olen saavuttanut elämässä kaiken minkä halusin” (Iltalehti 9.7.2017)
These fun loving images were originally created for Finnish shoe brand Minna Parikka.
These pictures show how perfectly body painting can be used within fashion advertising to support the original designs. This campaign has been shared in numerous blogs around the world and it received the Golden Prize at Vuoden Huiput (The Best of Finnish Advertising and Design competition).
The team behind the images was illustrator Janine Rewell, body painting artists Riina Laine and Saara Sarvas and photographer Jonas Lundqvist.
