A Long long day after a long long break!

Amazing! I had a long day in the studio today with a client! Loved it! When I arrived realise my studio is dusty and messy! Yesterday I was with my apprentice in the studio and prepared for her exam. We left without cleaning. I was so worn out and didn’t want to do anything, but sleep. Also, I forgot about […]

When apple trees bloom

When apple trees bloom I feel summer is near! It’s getting warmer and warmer and the grass is growing inch per day! Apple trees are in bloom now in Latvia! This year orchard looks like a blanket of light pink flowers full of bees and other insects. Still a lot of dandelions 🙂 But I spent a bit of a […]

Living in the studio!

It seems that I’ve been living in the studio lately… Well, I love it! I don’t mind spending time in my own special world. It’s amazing how my days have changed ever since I open up the studio. I loved to blog and share “a day in the life of Latvian mom” but now I bearly have an idea or […]

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 […]

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 […]

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  

Full Moon & Mosquitoes!

Beautiful full moon tempted me to go outside at night (I’m a bit afraid of the dark, if alone outside) with a camera in hand. Is it just me or are there more mosquitoes this year? I bet Mosquitoes number hasn’t changed. That is because so many people have left Latvia to work in UK, Ireland, Norway, etc., only a few […]
