Those eyes and gorgeous little face! I hold a very special place for Luca in my heart as I visited him in the NICU when he was born and personally handed over the Celebrate T21 gift pack to his beautiful mum. This session was part of the new Celebrate T21 book shoots that are gifted to families receiving a prenatal or postnatal (up to 3 months) diagnosis of Down syndrome, as part of a gorgeous Celebrate T21 gift pack. Celebrate T21 closely with families to educate, empower, and advocate for their choices, by supporting and celebrating their child with Down syndrome.
My cake smash sessions all include a bubble bath photos at the very end, with this little guy - we were late to take his 1st-year photos because of COVID... so we did a milestone session as soon as we could, and of course, I have included a bubble bath shot at the very end :-)
In the photo, my friend Natalya, and we are also neighbors. Our eldest sons are friends from birth! And now...tadam...new newborn baby! She just knocked on my door opposite and said that she had a baby again. Congratulations on the birth of a new life! This is a miracle! And it's incredibly cute!
This beautiful family wanted something special, a portrait that will be watched every day, a portrait that will decorate their house. I photographed all four people separately and then created one picture in photoshop. My intention was to capture the same light and shadows in all four shapes. I'm glad I made the next family happy. These are memories for many generations.
Sometimes our little ones leave us wonderful moments that are etched in the retina forever. When complicity is twofold, instants of magic emerge, which I am proud to capture. With this result I feel that life is rewarding me, it is an honor to dedicate myself to photography.
This family asked if I could do their newborn photos outside instead of in the studio. A whole new experience for me but I absolutely loved it. It wasn’t the perfect weather, no golden hour, lots of clouds and rain and the storm was coming, I think I should organize more sessions before storms as I love how they turned out.
And then we had baby rabbits. And our little 3-year-old is over the moon with them! So when I asked her to hug a view, she was super excited. With her big blue eyes staring in my camera I was thrilled with this shot. Funny story, I won another award with the mommy of those baby's ;)
Here is a very dear friend of mine. One of my first models as a Newborn and pregnancy photographer. She is simple, pure, captivating, and terribly beautiful, but also an amazing person. It's why this picture is so stunning, it's just her, an amazing person, beaming through my camera. I love you, my dear friend.
LOVE. One of the things I love the most about child photography is capturing magical moments of love. I love to be a fly on the wall and just let them be themselves. When I photograph brothers and sisters I come across a lot of admiring glances where they look at each other, these moments of their love to be preserved forever. When I get a moment like this, of a sweet kiss between sisters - then I won it all.
I wanted to do something with lots of "gold" in it, and my client loved the idea to create something that looked like an "offering" in a temple. I used 2 strip lights left and right, the one on the right with a grid. Fragments of smoke tablets in a copper bowl gave us "safe smoke".
