Keira Knightley in the studio this morning
When Keira Knightly calls, not her PA but in person and asks if you would be willing to take some images of her, could she come around in the morning…. You don’t say “Sorry Love, I’m busy”. What you do do is move heaven and earth to accommodate the shoot.
Well, I had that call. Nothing to worry about, it’s only a portrait shoot I kept telling myself. You are a photographer after all.
Not only is Keira one of the most beautiful women on the planet, she is also one of the most adorable. Friendly, very natural and unlike some movie stars – doesn’t take herself too seriously.
The shoot itself was fairly straight forward. A few head shots, some outdoor scenarios and some boudoir. If I do say so myself, there was good chemistry in the room and everything went to plan.
When we had finished, everyone except Keira and I had gone to the local coffee shop – she said that it was awkward for her to just pop in somewhere for a coffee, because she was soon recognised and sometimes it became a little overwhelming. It wasn’t something that I can say happens to me, but I sort of understood. Instead we had a coffee at the studio.
After some time she said that she should be going, so we both stood up. I think she meant to kiss me on the cheek but just at that moment I turned my head the wrong way (always did get confused by that one kiss, two kiss thing) and she planted a kiss smack on my lips. We both looked very embarrassed.
Thats when it all went haywire. I guess the chemistry was still there from the shoot. We flew at each other, and ended up on some bean bags. Clothes were flying everywhere – passion, lust, need, were all taking over. I remember thinking ” This is rediculous, I’m in love with my very special girl, I’m old enough to be her father, this is wrong on so many levels… but I’m a man, never the brightest of the species in these circumstances… so I banished all thoughts of guilt from my mind and let the momment take over.
My body started to shudder, as if I was being pushed from side to side… I opened my eyes to look at her….
“Morning Honey, you looked so happy I didn’t want to wake you, you had such a grin on your face – were you dreaming”
“Ummm – I guess so”
“you looked so, oh I don’t know, elated, were you dreaming of that new nikon D800 again”
“Ummm yes, yes I was”
NB Keira Knightley is not the most beautiful woman on the planet, my bit of fluff is. However, she comes a very close second.
