FUTURE MILF

FUTURE MILF is a playful shoot featuring eight month pregnant model Silje Stokka. The shoot takes place in Muscleworks Gym in North London, a no-frills space where a lot of the regulars are there to ‘get hench’, and a place focused on body transformation. Having noticed that the majority of the clientele are men, Creative Director Rachel Edwards wanted to play with this by showing an incredibly strong woman whose body is going through the ultimate change of preparing to bring a human life into the world.



Silje is a model who often styles and captures her own character based shoots with make-up, hair and clothing. She is passionate about body confidence and so the shoot wanted to reflect this. It’s all very silly - with Edwards loving the idea of having Silje sharing a cake with the words ‘No Pain No Gain’ with a bodybuilder, and having his huge muscles contrasting with her bump (the ways that bodies can change is really remarkable!). Gyms can be quite serious places that a lot of people are too intimidated to enter - so she wanted to show it in a different light.



Joseph Clarkson is a London based photographer who has previously worked with Silje in creating her yearly character based calendar. He has a natural ability to make people feel not only comfortable but confident in front of the camera, something that really translates in this shoot.



Maisie Jane Daniel's styling shows the fun, bold characters that Silje embodies and puts a spin on traditional maternity wear. With Louis Souvestre on hair and Lilli Kelly on make-up, we were able to make a really exciting, non-conventional pregnancy story.
