Did you know that all around Warsaw there are so many wild and almost unspoiled landscapes perfect for a bridal shoot, or a pre wedding session? This boho chic photo session was based on the idea to go out of Warsaw, and the urban atmosphere of a dynamic and lifestyle city into plain nothing - a couple of bushes, a small lake and a field. But for us it was just a perfect scenario to go a little more crazy and adventurous.
Gran Canaria Beach shoot
Ever did something really crazy? We sure did as we went to Gran Canaria for six months to escape the winter time in Warsaw, Poland. This beach shoot is just a sneak peak to our crazy adventure from this amazing Island. Together with my husband we had this idea to create a creative session representing light, color and wind - the key ingridients of this breathtaking place on Earth. This trip meant a lot to us and was sure a life time adventure which we wish to re-do this year too.
We went with Mila to the amazing Maspalomas Dunes in Gran Canaria to shoot kids photography! This place is just out of this world its like being on a desert while enjoying the ocean breeze. Its was really, really hot so we couldn't stay very long but it was surely enough to capture those little moments with Mila playing in the sand and having fun with her dinasour.
Wiktoria & Marcin
On a sunny day in July Wiktoria & Marcin decided to exchange their vows in the very cool looking Oczyszczalnia and gues who was their to photograph them? Yes, me! For me weddings are still an entire new universe what makes it so exciting to be a part of. The venue made it even more inspiring with the boho, rustic decorations and and overall laidback vibe. Well that's really a style that I enjoy a lot.
Maria & Piotr
I have known Maria and Piotr for a very long time. We have been close friends ever since school times. Maria asked me to be her braidsmaid and photographer at her wedding at the same time! The idea seemed little crazy to me, but then I thought why not? Let's do it! The wedding itself was taking place in the beautiful gardens of Palac Zdunowo, located just little outside of Warsaw. The family and friends made for a very chilled atmosphere and it was a lot of fun to be a part of it. And their dog Robal was the second (or maybe first) bestman! Yes what a fun wedding.
We choose Osada Osjakow as our destination place for a little off city hangout. It was just a two-days stay but it was just what we needed to simply enjoy our company! It was also Kajo's first trip outside of the city, so it was even more special to us. And Mila? Well, like we expected it was all about the dogs the the "jumpolina" Of course I could not help myself to make some kids photographies in a lifestyle matter... our lifestyle.
52 cm height and 3.2 kg weight - these are the love dimensions of our new family member Kajo! Having a newborn session is so much fun when you have two kids taking part. Everybody got a short brake from changing diapers. Mila was helping out and trying to get into every shot. Can't blame her willing to get closer to such an handsome dude -her new super cool brother!
One winter morning, before we filled our cups with hot coffee somehow the camera landed in our bedroom and was demanding to be used. Last chance for a pregnant photo session - I thought, as its alread the 9th month. No prepartion just real life. Carring the baby influences a women's body, but dont be afraid of showing it. You and your baby, that's the true beauty.
That's what being sexy is all about
I have known Kamil all my life. We have been through many up's and down's but that's the sort of an relation that will last through any storms. We hooked up for a brief walk in the forest, which is really close by to the place where we live. We went towards the sun. Luck was not really on our side as the clouds gathered faster then our pace was, but still we managed to get a couple of good shots, but wat really matters - were the smiles and laughs.
I really love that hat <3
Rustic farmhouse in the forest
In the middle of the wedding season we luckily found a few days off for our selves. I almost could not belive it! Sebastian was running and gunning from one weekend's venue to another. I was so delighted that we could get out of the city for a couple of days, hide out in an old farmhouse in the middle of nowhere. We had a whole farm to explore, just for the three of us. It was Mila who had the best time, of course what a surprise! She got to feed the horses, stare at the goats and chase the dogs around the yard. Oh, and there was this old trampoline, which was occupied from day to down by our daughter. But it was worth the smiles we got in return.
Can't wait to come back.
Warsaw is changing from year to year. Specially in the summer time. All those new food places, bars and hang out spots become so grown within the capital's heart stream that no one can imagine living without them. Wars&Saw is definately one of those spots. Hidden behind an old garage it welcomes you with a bright smile of people sharing their pizzas, lemonades and coctails. We all hooked up to celebrate Asia &Antek's daughers names day. So many kids, so many smiles and laughter. Funny thing is that when you are a parent you only get to experience all the moment looking at pictures that you took. There is simply not enough time running around and chasing your kid. But hey, that's what it is all about.
That's what matters in kids photography.
A lazy sunday can be so much fun, even on a cold day. All you need is your family, a bit of light and the joy and warmness comes on it's own. We went for a walk around the House of Art located in southern Mokotow of Warsaw. Autumn leaves already fell from the trees making the colors pop even on a cloudy day. Mila had so much fun running around the park, across the little bridge over the lake and of course hopping on her daddy's back.
Family time at it's best.
Anatol & Techno the dog
One crazy dog, two loving parents and of course one baby to the equation! I dropped by at Karolina & Marcin for coffee, but stayed a little longer. Taking pictures of real people in real situations shows true emotions, even if its connected to changing diapers or feeding your baby - that's true life. Only problem is - I can't decide who is sweeter the child, or the dog.
Really impressed how those little action figures get painted. It takes a lot of effort, time and detail to make them shine. One of our closest friends does excatly that. Mila was definately taken away.
Holidays are fun. You get to travel around to new places, meet people, enjoy sunhines and sunsets. But most of all you get to spend more time with the people you love the most. Fureteventura is definately one of those place where having your camera on you all the time is a must. This place is just amazing. From sandy beaches up to rocky hillis. For Mila it was her second real holiday so far away home, but as soon as we came back home, new plans were already being made.
