Last year around this time I was getting ready for our very first Christmas in Stockholm, hoping to light up the darkness with some shimmer & a few sparkly details. Being rather ill from my pregnancy did put quite a damper on my enthusiasm (and picture editing!) though – and once I actually started feeling better to edit the images I took, Christmas was long gone! Time will tell if I manage to do some styling and festive photography this year, as time is a tad limited with the two little busy ladies in our household at the moment. Hence, for now, a little sprinkling of festive cheer to go around, compliments of last year’s efforts. x
I met up with the lovely Lau family a few weeks ago while they were over here on a short holiday from Switzerland. For their session we decided on a lovely rural setting – and managed to choose a rather freezing afternoon for the shoot! However Barbara, the glowing mommy-to-be, simply took the cold weather in her stride… she was such a trooper!
Little Milan was born on April 17 to proud mommy and daddy Camelia & Sana Safai. I had great fun photographing a lovely expectant Camelia (click HERE for the shoot) and was really excited to meet this little man for the first time – and to be able to photograph him too. We had a choice of the sweetest little hats / wraps available for this shoot, all knitted by friends and family. How precious. x
