The inspiration for the photoshoot came from Anastasia, with a little help from mum Sofia after they had been looking at a lot of old magazines, and the stylist then helped to action the ideas.  The images portray a child who has dreams and the imaginary world – of how children can create different worlds and ideas in their head and how creative they are when they play. The balloons are a sign of floating, having fun, being connected to the child “world”.
