A day in Hamburg Harbour

Sometimes I am worried that my children are not in touch with their roots. So once in while we take them on a ‘cultural trip’ to Germany. This summer, while visiting family (and polishing up my children’s language skills of what is supposed to be their mother tongue) we went on a day trip to Hamburg. The harbour […]

It’s all happening at the zoo

When my kids’ school was closed the other day because of broken water mains, we wanted to do something that is usually difficult because it is too crowded. The weather was not brilliant, but dry and my kids really, really wanted to go to the zoo. I have to admit that in spite of having […]

Sibling love

A while ago I had the pleasure to photograph two extraordinary siblings in Primrose Hill. The light was not fantastic, but their cheerfulness and cooperation certainly were! Time passed really quickly and we had so much fun on the hill and on the playground.  

Pipa Boutique

Recently, I was fortunate enough to be asked to take some photos of one of my favourite shops, the independent lifestyle boutique Pipa on Formosa Street, Little Venice, for a feature in the Smallish magazine! And they deserve the feature, because the shop is just gorgeous! In 2010 Pipa was voted by Vogue Magazine as one of […]

The old stone cottage

Once in a while we have enough of the big city and leave for the English countryside. And if we do that, we do it properly. No WiFi, not even mobile reception and the car had to be parked about 100 yards away from the cottage we had rented: we had to work our way […]

Exploring the Wilderness of Dorset

Our last half term break led us to Dorset, to the middle of nowhere. It was just perfect! While I saw picture opportunities everywhere, the kids couldn’t wait to go exploring. We decided a while ago not to call it ‘walking’ or ‘hiking’ but ‘exploring’: it made all the difference… On the other hand that […]

Regent’s Park

Again we didn’t have any snow in London this winter. But plenty of rain… However, once in a while, the sun came out beautifully and we could go for a walk and play in one of the many parks. Last Sunday was one of those days with bright sun. But two of my kids were […]

1-2-3-bokeh

I have been a lot on Instagram lately and leading up to Christmas I can see alot of images there that are using double exposures and a lot of bokeh. Bokeh is the quality of the area in a photographic image that is out of focus. If you are photographing you can see it as the blob […]

Trick or Treat

It’s Halloween today and apart from carving pumpkins and thinking about dressing up we have been preparing for this by creating a  series of dark images. The kids loved being involved! Happy Halloween!
