around every corner


hello and happy sunday guys! hope you’re winding down a great weekend. it’s been a day of rest around here and that was both needed, good and lazy. best of all i had time to surf and started looking through the day’s loot. you never know what you collected till the end of the session and see it all together.


there was so much pretty stuff i pretended to make a little apartment for myself.


please indulge me and enjoy a tour!



















well it was great having you over and so it’s off to bed. we have a crazy busy day with an early am call time tomorrow. lots of grunt work but still i’m looking forward to it.  and now, have a good night and a great monday!

what makes a great vignette


good morning gang! how’s your week going so far? we’re running around getting ready for a photo shoot on friday and monday.


in the meantime we’ve got to shoot at home a little but even though it’s filled with pretty things it’s sort of hard for me to capture what i want in my own place.


fortunately there’s an endless source of inspiration out there! i think you know where i go by now but if not…it’s pinterest! i’m studying the creativity of the settings combined with the science of photography and hopefully will come up with some good images of my own today.




till then, i hope you get that magic shot if you’re after it too…and pin it! have a great day!

hi guys happy sunday! i hope you had a great weekend and are about to embark on a nice long night. we’ve been busy running around all week and today was a relaxing respite. i cracked my laptop lid for the first time in what seems like an eternity just now. instead of surfing around i’m stopping on the very first bit of beauty in my inbox. i can’t keep this photographer’s work a secret since her images of paris are so bright and cheerful and getting her newsletter is completely inspiring. hope you enjoy her work too! well, i’m off  to squeeze in a little more downtime, have a great night!
