September and October have the most gorgeous evening skies. Often pink or orange, warm light mirrors in the sky and stretch down to earth for the most stunning moments of creation through the autumn months. When those rays come down and light up our surroundings and a photograph is taken, dreamy images can be captured forever. And with a beautiful family to photograph, it turned out just perfect this October afternoon.

Two weeks old, awake, alert, and active; sweet little Lainey at our first meeting.
We decided to do the photo session at the new family’s home. Surrounded by your own things the photos become more personal. Like a photo of Lainey’s cousin on the desk in the background and the lovely details in her room.
Being in the city, I was wondering how to get all the supplies and props I brought with me to their place, making sure my little boy doesn’t run around on the street unattended and while I was dropping off the luggage and finding a place to park. God works in mysterious ways; in this area it’s not so easy to find parking but there it was – a parking spot right outside their door, just for us. How little things make me happy.
Lainey was asleep when we arrived. But apparently, she didn’t want to miss any of the action, and stayed awake for the rest of our visit. Even though we may feel that many baby-poses turn out ‘better’ when they are sleeping, we were able to get some lovely captures of this new little miracle while she was moving and observing the happenings.
I can’t wait to see her grow. Welcome sweet little Lainey.

Little N is 4 weeks old. Big sister P is 3 and totally protective of her new baby brother. In between convincing P that I will not hurt little N when I photograph him, and mamma consoling him every few minutes, we did manage to get quite some wonderful captures of this newborn little blessing. What a wonderful few hours with the family it was.

A great way to have keepsake memories of a place you lived in for a few years, is to have a photo session right in the middle of it. Later, looking back at the pictures reminds you of the place and the time you spent there. reminiscing of an earlier time.. when the kids were small….
This lovely family wanted to have pictures taken in the city of Basel, to have as a keepsake for whenever they may return to their native land half way around the world, or move on to a new adventure somewhere else. It was a joy to spend a few hours with them in the old town and attempt to catch their 3-year-old daughter just at the right moment for a nice capture. And also of the gorgeous little brother of fives months, whenever he happened to look my way that is. He seemed to just try to figure out what we were doing the whole time. His expression often said just that!
I soooo enjoyed the afternoon with you all, and I am looking forward to taking a few more photos when little bro is ready to sit on his own! 🙂

The other night, I was playing around with some photos from a maternity shoot I did a few months ago. I enjoyed testing the different effects, which are more suitable for studio shots than outdoors. It’s all a taste thing, and there are some black and white captures. After the fact, I see how I would have wanted a few thing shot differently, but ‘Oh well!’ as my step-mom use to say, our art y-moods can change from day-to-day. What do you think?
And a little Cross Process on the lump that became a beautiful little baby girl.

There used to be a nice interior design shop around the corner from our place in Houston that my step-mom and I loved to go to. It was called Tuesday Morning. Is it still around in the USA? I like the way the name sounded so peaceful, adventurous and special.
Last Tuesday Morning was special to me. I had a wonderful photo-session with a family I photographed 6 months ago when little Aurelia was just newly born. Her sister Jasira ran around and wanted lot’s of attention back then, this time she was doing great with direction and knew how to pose, by just being herself. She is really gorgeous. Here are a few impressions from that shoot.
