against the odds - kat eye studio's photo-heart connection July 2012

sad moments and bad weather can end up in lovely pictures too.  
it was grey and wet outside.  
lulu had been crying and 
was holding this big white polar bear close to her, 
and she looked so sweet in that tender moment with mr bear.  
the photo's softness highlights this special moment, 
and the little tear 
delicately resting under her right eye
 tells the story of that moment

i'm linking with kat eye studio's photo-heart connection (July 2012)
because i believe, like Kat,
that a photograph is so much more
than composition, colours, light, etc
it's also so much about what it says 
to our human heart
i believe this is what makes people stop in front of a photo
and study it, analyse it, loose themselves in it
for me, the photograph i worked on this July past
is this photo
it speaks to me on a very deep level

kinfolk style photos

i was introduced last weekend to a great magazine called 'kinfolk' - i am very attracted to their style of photography and the articles are really interesting too and well written. so this week, i couldn't resist, i got my camera out and took some shots in the kinfolk style, with my own style mixed with it i guess. below are some of the photos i took.

impromptu photo shoot with sweet stella

a few weeks ago, on one of my visits to zoe's and actually as we were setting up to take photos of zoe wearing one of her dear mum's vintage dresses, sweet little stella stole the show and the photo shoot became one of stella wearing her dear mum's petticoat... (zoe, i hope you have forgiven me my lack of focus and how easily i can get distracted... i hope you like the final pictures of stella!).

stella was having so much fun with a little cat mask she had made just earlier that day, and then with the gorgeous powder brush zoe had planned to use herself.  i love these photos, zoe, stella, my lulu, and myself, that was a very special moment (even if zoe felt a bit ignored!!).
