First look: Where the heart is

Where the heart is

Spring, spring, spring! Here we come. There are flowers, new leaves, good smells and smiling faces. Between the early thaw and some time away in Australia, it almost feels like winter just breezed by. Spring brings many new things and in the Bear & Dragon studio, it means lots of gorgeous new babies.

I had the pleasure of stepping out of the studio for a wonderful session with three week old Charlotte and her parents. Don’t get me wrong, I love the studio and the space I work in but it was also fun to work in a new space on a nice sunny day to captures some special moments. Being photographed in your home brings a different quality to the images. They feel more like memories. A slice of a time that whizzes by and almost seems surreal when looking back. I am grateful to have been asked to photograph this beautiful and growing family.

Back from holiday and back to reality. Its a tad on the soggy side and though we were well intentioned to hit Baboes or the Baby Gym today, instead we played and practiced our colors in the studio. That was when Zoe sparked the fabulous idea of playing in the window. The photographer side of my brain couldn’t resist grabbing my camera. The result was magical. Here is our Friday!

First look: Jessica and Ivan maternity session

Image
In the light

There is nothing more gorgeous than the beauty of pregnancy. Somehow in looking back at maternity photos, one is filled with a sense of disbelieve and wonder. Wow, is that really me?! I love capturing these moments, as fleeting as they are, for all time.

We were so happy to welcome Jessica and Ivan into the studio recently. Due in May, Jessica felt and looked great! Such a fun pair, full of laughter. I am incredibly excited to meet their little one for her newborn sessions in the not so distant future. Please enjoy these lovely images of a fantastic couple on a big, big adventure. 🙂

What happens with a gorgeous Italian redhead meets her Isreali prince? In this case, elegant Amelia! I had these two lovely ladies in the studio last week and had an amazing time playing and snapping pictures. At eight months, Amelia was a skilled sitter and scooter, pro at outfit changes and all around doll. Please enjoy!

This week the most marvelous little sprite, along with her mother and grandmother, graced the Bear & Dragon Studio. She danced, she played, I photographed. What fun! I am proud to present a few snaps from our hour that went way too fast. Happy Friday!

Bright eyes

What a wonderful day. The more I shoot the more I understand exactly who I am as a photographer. The clean and crisp look of the studio is gorgous and consistent but what really makes my heart jump and puts a smile on my face is when I can capture the interaction, the gentle intensity that is in the relationship between mothers, fathers, sons, daughters, brothers, sisters, grandparents and even dogs!

Here is a first look at our session today with Sandra and Yannick. A little angel with a mischievous glint in his eye. Thank you so much for the pleasure of your company.
