This picture means everything to me and looking at it earlier today, it reminded me how important my job is. This is my beautiful mum hugging my dearest niece, and even though you don’t really see my mum’s face I can see she is smiling, because I know her face so well. It is not an old picture, it is a picture I took some weeks ago, but it already means so much to me that just looking at it I get nostalgic and happy at the same time .. and it actually makes me cry a little too .. This picture is not technically perfect but still I don’t care, because this picture gives me so much more ..
So this is my job. It is not just a hobby, it is not just for fun, it is not to be an artist, or to be creative. To be a photographer is very important and a huge responsibility. We catch memories, feelings and time so we can enjoy them all a little longer over and over again ;)
I photograph everyday life as it is .. Simple but soon a memory, a memory worth remembering.
I am so happy to see my images from the beautiful elopement of Soumali and James featured on the lovely Australian blog Hello May, check it out here.
Last year I photographed this little cutie named Holly with her mother. It was a present for the daddy (you can see them here). Some months after they called me again, this time to have some photos taken of all three of them ..
I couldn’t help but taking an extra picture of this little girl while she was being styled .. This is behind the scenes from a kids shoot I shot for the lovely Ziestha clothing.
