“I can be who I want to be, in the photos we have possibility to be totally different than in reality.”
Luiza, what brought you into modeling world? I always asked my friends to take photos for me. I just loved to invent new stylizations or make-ups. Finally, someone noticed me, and after that I had my first professional photo-session. Since then, all went very fast and crazy. Furthermore, “real” photographers started invite me for really professional sessions.
What do you love most about being a model? I can be who I want to be, in the photos we have possibility to be totally different than in reality.
What are your favorite genres & styles of modeling? I adore all that is romantic, sensual, fairytale, but sometimes I try something new and unheard.
What’s one of the most interesting shoots that you’ve done? When someone put on me tons of pink make up, which created something like cosmic/alien mask. The paint was everywhere – in my nose, hair, I found it in my ears too.
Is there anything you wish you had known when you first got into modeling? Sometimes it requires big sacrifices or working in difficult conditions (rain, frost, high altitudes).
What do you find the most challenging part about modeling? How to pose, when you don’t accept yourself and your own body.
What’s your most memorable direction/advice a photographer has ever given to you? When you want to show your emotions – try to feel them.
Luiza, what’s something you haven’t achieved but hope to in the future? I want to show that short girls can pull through in photo-modeling.

What is your advice to other aspiring models? It needs much of patience and a lot of work before you achieve something. You need to gain experience during each session.

How do you prepare yourself when you have to go for a shoot? One day before I am trying to stop eating like everyday (just small portions) because after that stomach looks really nice and flat. I always remember about nice and healthy nails, however perfect hair and make up are elementary.
