jordana & andreas {gamla stan}

I met up with  Jordana and Andreas in Gamla Stan, the old town in inner Stockholm, and we had great fun doing a portrait session, wandering up & down narrow alleyways and peeking into specialist stores whilst taking pictures. 

A special thank you to the English Bookstore  and Polkapojkarna both for props & lovely locations. Be sure  not to pass them by on a visit to Gamla Stan!

As magical goes, setting up and shooting this styled session with lovely Mathilda in the park surrounding Waldemarsudde (Djurgården, Stockholm) was just that.

meet baby milan

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

and a favourite of mine.

camelia & sana

I really had such a great time shooting this session with lovely Camelia & Sana last weekend. I first learnt  about Camelia through an article written by her about how she managed to find herself in the position to set up a quaint little shop called Camelia’s Cupcakes   in Stockholm shortly after arriving here as an expat (rather inspiring stuff for this newly landed expat who is herself wading into the business deep end too). Through an idea for photo-session in the shop we managed to connect, and that’s when Camelia mentioned that she’s expecting and thinking about a maternity shoot instead. Aptly named ‘cupcake’ by his adoring parents, the little one is due to make an appearance in about 7 weeks. Seeing the love & affection between Camelia and Sana as a couple – and their excitement about the pregnancy – made the shoot ever so special. (Together also with them being really game at trying out a few silly poses!)

I wish you both all that is good, lovely &  beautiful for this wonderful new season in your lives – I cannot wait to see you and your little baby together!

                                           

a happy little chap

Capturing little Calla required some quick footwork … he has boundless energy and runs around no end! Seeing his little jolly face in these pics still makes me smile every time  though – he’s just so happy one can’t but be affected when together.  Jobeana & Lambertus, thank you for kindly letting me share these. Hopefully we will see you & little Calla again soon. xxx

Looking forward to seeing you
