The first pose of my ongoing pin-up series which I plan to continue throughout 2006 and possibly releasing a calendar for '07. Took me a while to find a model willing to pose for these photos while having the right "look." I've found my muse and now I'm her designated photographer and webmaster, www.kaykotamaki.com

Yup, breathtaking girl. If you found your muse, you are a lucky, lucky guy. Who wouldn't be inspired by beauty like that. Hope to see more of your (and her) work here!

i love the world war 1 and 2 ad feel. a little too sexy for those times though ..lol.. very profesional look and lighting, creative pose and very nice expression on the models face. Good job on the make up as well, its something overlooked by many (myself included).

And Vargus is? I like the picture and googled vargus, and still have no idea who or what they are ... are they the engineering workshop? Good thing I like the picture more than the google search to help me. 8.

Great pose and very professionally done image. Not sure about the ribbons and the booties, one or the other would probably have been enough.

Great image. The look in her eyes as she stares at the camera is captivating. 7
