While I was growing-up, my mother was “trigger happy” regarding photography. You can’t even imagine how huge is the pile of photographs showcasing me with our dog, playing with the dolls, with my grandparents, in a new dress, “swimming” in an inflatable pool (if you can call that swimming)… Then she gave birth to my brother and that “trigger happiness” doubled (of course); until she got sick and ended up in a hospital for almost a year. I guess something “snapped” inside her cause when she was finally released from the hospital, she never took that camera in her hands. Ever again. There is a huge hole in documenting our family life with photos and I deeply regret that for reasons I will tell you about in another post…
When I first got my hands on a small/idiot digital camera (a gift for my 18th birthday) I promised myself I will never allow that “special” moments in my life to be “un-documented”. So I became “trigger happy” just like my mother annoying people around me with “strike a pose for me” sentence. I guess it didn’t surprise anyone when I wanted to document “in a proper way” yet another special moment in our lives – me being huge as a whale while we are waiting to meet you baby girl
Thank you Frano (from GleFotka Studio) for being patient with us (read: me) during our shoot… Here are some of my favourites:
You know how Obelix fell into the Magic Potion when he was a little boy and that resulted with his superhuman strength? Well, I guess I fell into laugh-inducing potion:
After the “inside” part of our session we took a walk through our neighbourhood; isn’t my husband just yummy?
Love love love love love this one:
Yet another laughter seizure:
Can you guess what will the first pair of shoes be in our baby girl life?
You could describe this year as a “children” year; at least in my circle of friends. Three of my good friends are pregnant and one already gave birth to adorable little heartbreaker Fran. Those un-pregnant ones are convinced that our “condition” is contagious and don’t wanna spend too much time hanging out with us “just in case it doesn’t rub off to them” – silly creatures
Last week I went to see Fran and of course I took my camera with me. Here is a peak of Fran’s first (of many) encounter(s) with my camera:
Doesn’t he remind you of a small Superman on this photo?!? To the rescue! Yaaa-taaa!
40 days. That’s how long it’s been since I published anything in the blogosphere. 40 days is a long time, wouldn’t you agree? I could try to justify myself by listing all the things that kept me away from blogging or photography in general… Like, finally finishing master thesis and submitting it to my MBA School (all that is left to do is to defend the thesis in front of the Commission). Or, the fact that my estimated due date is March 27nd and that everything tires me up; going to my parents flat and climbing 72 stairs (yes, I know the exact number) feels like conquering Mount Everest. If someone else listed me things that kept him/her away from their dreams, I would quietly mutter “excuses, excuses”. So… why didn’t I mutter “excuses, excuses” to myself? I did – after 40 days. Better late than never, right? To people who follow my blog – I apologise for not writing in such a long time. It will never happen again. I promise.
And, since every post is better with a photo, here is one from my own photo-session last Saturday taken by Frano Ozbolt (GleFotka Studio):
Can’t wait to see the rest!
