Aroa Renau II

Aroa Renau II

This piece wasn’t meant to be divided over two posts, but the sheer quantity (and high quality) of her portfolio eventually made it the only way to do her justice, and not have lovely pieces skimmed past as desperate viewers try to reach the end of an over-long gallery.

This, then, is the touted work she’s done with Alba Soler (perhaps best known for her sessions with Claudia Seguì – link here for both), who lives in Xàtiva/Játiva, near to Aroa‘s Valencia:

Alba is also a photographer of mildly erotic adult glamour sets (sometimes featuring herself), and she usually seems to see her girl models in rather sensuous poses and outfits – never with toys, playing games, etc., even for children’s fashion sessions. She has two Facebook accounts, but features some of her kids’ work in the “adult” one as well – see below for the image links.

Next is Aroa‘s work with another Valencian photographer, Carol Bellver – featuring a swimsuit set for equally-Valencian brand Salacadula – but before we begin, watch the following short video and see what poor Aroa was experiencing: at least seven adults (at about 1:14) watching and giving instructions, while she’s standing with the other models, wearing just a culetin (bikini bottom) – no wonder she looks a little unsure in the first two photos:

…..and while I rate the professional capabilities of Alba and Carol very highly, I think Aroa comes over better in the playful/neutral settings that the Lourdes Kids and Kid’s Chocolate photographers put her in: she still is just ten, and her character doesn’t seem to thrive as much in more sophisticated shoots. Have a look at these two short videos by Maá Shoes, made in 2014, but giving an idea of what a little girl she was/still is. (Also take a look at the couple of videos at the end of the post showing the making of a short horror film she acts in called “Three Wise Monkeys” – I haven’t seen the film itself yet):

Anyway, head/head-and-upper-torso shots are pretty neutral by definition – let me start with one, and finish my pontificating:

…….another contender for the fatuous-but-fun “Most Beautiful Girl in the World” title? She looks about 10% prettier when she isn’t pursing her lips….but the mascara was probably unnecessary…

The first two are also by Carol:

…..if she burns out young you can hardly blame her: she’s doing everything to make for a successful career – luckily Valencia seems to be teeming with artistic/design talent….
