A lot has happened since we first published this post last year. Both the photographer and the model have gotten married, so bad luck for us, but Christmas magic for them.
We were very excited when we made contact with photographer Katerina Katonik from Voronezh, Russia. We absolutely love her style and this set was just perfect to start the holiday season.
With hints of Gil Elvgren in the background and her own edgy style carrying the vintage theme forward into the 21st century, Katerina takes us on a journey with Pin Up girl Polli Smile, who is drop dead gorgeous to say the least. And our new photographer friend seems to pretty hot herself. But that’s another story.
Katerina says she was born in “… Syktyvkar, Russia, were it is always a cold Russian winter with bears.” We are glad she survived those winters and bears, because she really heats things up now. It is pretty amazing that our new friend only just picked up a camera three years ago. We can’t even take a proper picture of our dog!
Enjoy today’s gallery to the sounds of Belgian Band, Smooth and the bully boys, with their version of Elvis Presley’s “Baby let’s play house.” Although we prefer to play Christmas morning with the girls 😉
