It is amazing to see that after the winter, the sun comes out and it is summer. Spring and Autumn are only a few days and then you are in the next season.

Alia found me via a friend who saw my work on facebook. And she mentioned she was looking for pictures in the snow and that she was pregnant. I had this long time wish to photograph a pregnant lady in the snow with a beautiful dress on. I mentioned it to her and she was all up for it. I asked my daughter to be my assistant. We talked about the pose inside, went outside with a fur coat on. And on moment supreme she took the coat of and gave it to my daughter. Click, click and coat on again. I love these images. My fingers were frozen afterwards since I shoot manual and have to adjust the dials so I can not wear gloves. But Alia was real brave to stand there in just a dress.

And another bonus to these photoshoots is that I get to know really nice people. Since we did this shoot near to my house, my son got to play a bit with her son and my husband had a cup of coffee with her husband. They shared work interests. I like it when all comes together.

And then…. the first snow came to Moscow. Anna got this photo session as a gift certificate for her birthday. Because she was in the process of moving it took some time to find a suitable date. When the time came closer for them to leave Moscow. We just had to do it. They had a busy schedule, but luckily we found a moment.

Since is was quite cold the little man liked it only for a short amount of time. Luckily the girls were troopers. And I really enjoyed shooting in the snow. Did not feel my fingers afterwards but it was all worth it. I wish you all well on your new destination and hope these images will remind you of your time in Moscow.

While winter is approaching us, I realized I still hadn’t shared this wonderful session that I did this Summer.

It took a bit of time to update the blog. But we are all set again. The kids are back in school. Before the summer holiday I photographed some nice families. And although we saw the first snow of the season already, I still wait for the Indian Summer, a girl can wish right?  There are some families waiting to be photographed.  I hope some bright skies will appear….like soon. 

Unfortunately the L. family have left Moscow and they will be missed. But luckily they left with a nice memory of Moscow in their minds and in their home.

We had to postpone this session a few times because the weather was playing tricks on us. It was not suppose to rain that day and then it started. Or it seriously looked like rain but it did not in the end. And because the traffic is always a factor in Moscow it was not easy to plan. It is not like ok I will be there in 10 minutes or half an hour. Here you never know how long traffic will take. And it had to be on a weekend day…despite all that we were able to make it work.

to have this one hanging big in their living room?

Such a nice memory of Moscow in the summer. It is taken at the lake that is half of the year covered with ice and snow.  To give you a sense of size I show you this image.

It was a nice surprise for P. to get a photo of his children for fathers day. We secretly planned this session before the family session which came up soon after. I joked with the kids that they could not tell dad about it. And if we would meet within a few days, we all should act like we never met before….

Isn’t it fascinating how many different faces and expressions you can capture in just a few moments? I love to make collages like this from these moments.
