But Portugal has a peaceful feel about it. I sit on the terrace overlooking the vineyard there and I feel cut off from the world. You need that sort of thing.” – Cliff Richards

There couldn’t be any better words so sum up the feeling of this shoot in Sintra, Portugal. It was the very first one of several shoots we did in Portugal for theModeCode, an international column in fashion and lifestyle, this spring. The entire shoot was like a vacation. Our model Vitoria from Just Models, dressed in a whiff of nothing, enjoyed a layed back day in the sun on the terrace in front of the camera.

Blue is the defining color in all of the pictures of our “The Girl in the Window” shoot. Bringing out the peace and quiet of the lazy, little house on the hill above the sea. All colors are well composed and fit nicely together. The only thing standing out is Vitoria’s head scarf and red lip.
