It has been the kind of weather where even the shade feels like stepping into a steamy hot shower room. But that doesn’t stop me from shooting outdoors and I had a wonderful, […]

It’s a strange feeling when your first child graduates from high school. It’s a feeling that almost gives me vertigo since the years really have flown by and it’s hard to grasp that that girl that was so tiny just moments ago now is all grown up and has graduated. At this very moment 19 […]
