Day #170

Nelle is still sick and Helmī is accompanying her. Now – two ill and it feels like this stomach virus is spreading. I hope no one else catches it! While girls were sleeping I worked on labels for honey. My friend has honey bee farm and she is selling honey, pollen and bee bread. I love honey and especially when it’s […]

Rabbits

A few days ago I cooked stew and had spare spring cabbage leaves to share. Also, plenty of dandelion leaves growing outside, so I suggested to pick those and go visit rabbits in our friends family house. It was 15 minute walk with my little ones and it was hot and sunny. We got water bottles with us and one […]

Herbal Tea

Our plan for today was town festival, but we had to cancel it. Nelle is ill and we won’t go without her! We like to be together when going out. Instead of the town festival, I went to woods to collect birch leaves. Why in woods, not in bushes?! It’s so summery, dry and dusty! Dust isn’t good in your […]

Photoshoot #3

I’m learning to let go and be me behind the camera. Plan, direct, shoot, edit and learn. Repeat. The internet is full of pictures, the world is full of cameras and Gulbene is full of photographers… Still, this is my dream and will be a reality for upcoming few years. Dream big! Even you think you can’t! Do more of […]

Busy!?

Busy is a strong name I don’t like to use! Usually, I would say – in hurry, don’t know how to prioritize, need to set my goals, deal with this/that… I’m never busy! Busyness kills and won’t give joy and certainly not an inspiration! Yesterday I had to sit down and plan my day, cause I had two photo sessions […]

Small Detour

We sometimes like to take small detours around the countryside we are living in. Yesterday I spent the whole day learning photoshop and editing baby Freijas pictures so I felt like I need to change the ” view what’s around” and have a detour. It ended with a surprise – horses. Very friendly horses! Girls were out of the car […]

Long Awaited Results

I received a call on Tuesday (didn’t expect that) and I was asked to “come over” and “sign papers” which means I WON and my business plan was good enough to get support! Now I will have a lot to do till 20th of June! Paperwork, institutions and agents and then when I finally register my “economic activity” I will tell […]

Baby Freija

Yesterday I spend whole day capturing baby Freija! She is so adorable when sleeping. The problem was she wasn’t sleeping! She cried or ate. I was there for pictures but she didn’t want to model :). I hope one day we will meet again! Sweet dreams, Freija! Ilze

Sunday: Birthday Party

Sunday we were at a birthday party for Linna’s kindergarten colleague Lizabella. That was fun! Girls enjoyed inflatable attractions while I took my camera out and start to capture kids and moms with kids… Loved it so much Ilze
