I got to know Festa via Instagram and we first met at the beginning of the spring — or was it still winter? — in one of my favourite cafes in Helsinki. Having moved from Albania to Finland, Festa is a wonderfully warm and outgoing person, who loves to travel and speaks many languages. Months had passed since that day at the cafe, but when Festa asked me to take some portraits of her, I knew that it was going to be a fun session!

Unfortunately, when the designated photoshoot day came, the weather was dull and grey. Nevertheless, the colourful leaves and Festa's warm smile make these photos very lovely, don't you agree? When shooting with models, it's hard to get such spontaneous smiles, so seeing Festa being so natural in front of my camera was very heart-warming.
