The red shoes.

So here comes the promised blog post about shoes :) We had an hour before the session last Saturday to buy Lucy new shoes, so we went to a shoe shop and tried to choose some shoes for Lucy. I mean Alex and I. We found some nice and practical shoes that we likes, the sales assistant kept going back anf forth bringing new shoes, kept putting them on Lucy. Lucy kept letting her do it and them would take them off and hold on to her old pair saying "Lucy", meaning, "Thanks, but no, thanks, I have shoes already". The only problem being that they were becoming too small and she needed the next size. We would have gotten the exact same shoes for her just to keep her happy, but the shop didn't have them in stock. We didn't want to buy her shoes she wouldn't want to wear. And most of the time she is such an angel  (as much as a 2 year old can be one :)) that if she puts up a fuss we try to listen. So, Alex held her up so she can see all the shoes they have and told her: "Pick any shoes you want and we will buy them for you". And she picked these:

The significance of what had happened is that it was the first time when she chose shoes herself. And frankly, we were not ready to have it at 2 years and 2 months. So it starts a new era for us.
It's not something that we would have chosen, but at least they are not pink :) So, the shoes are red, extremely shiny, and have cats on the soles:

And no doubt you will see them a lot on this blog, becase really, they are not just some brown shoes you can ignore :)
And of course the proud owner of the shiny shoes:

A little preview

I had a great day today - had a session with a very nice family and had fantastic time playing with my own family after it!
If you are up for a challenge - go and try to photograph a one year old :) They already walk so they can run away from you and too young to bribe :) But they are so much fun. The only way to work with them is to play with them their games. Little guy from today's session greeted me with a biggest smile, showing off all 4 of his teeth. He introduced a couple of games and gave me 2 seconds to get every shot I was trying to get. Very generous of him! :) Seriously, I just love my job. Kids bring so much joy, you can't watch them without a smile on your face.
Here is a little sneak peak :)

There is plenty more to come when the gallery is ready!

And the next post should be up pretty soon and it will be about ... shoes!!!

There has been some crazy weather changes lately! I was happy to have a few very warm days and believe me we have spent as much time outside as possible. I have shot lots and not sure when I will have enough time to process it all! Not it's cold again..
Just a couple of shots with lovely daffodils...

The wedding!

I mentioned a couple of posts ago that I photographed a wedding in the middle of March. It was great to be with my friends on their big day. I'm so happy for them! They looked fantastic, the wedding was amazing and now they have their life together ahead of them.
So now that the newlyweds are back, I'm posting a few of my favourites. I have lots and I will try my best not post all of them!
