Sunrise on the Icelandic shore is a monochrome marvel. Artic cold ocean meets black volcanic basalt rocks, spraying joy, freezing moments of bliss. Against the dramatic backdrop, they played, laughed and walked down the black sand beach of Reynisfjara. Vanessa and Ollie, mother and son, sending a postcard from Iceland, the land of fire and ice.
Early hours in Rome have their own rythm. Streets start to bustle as locals commute. Cafes serve morning coffee and pastries. Piazzas fill with brisk steps. The Tiber flows steadily. Joggers follow familiar routes. Vanessa, Jay and their wonder boys stroll down the city while the day begins. The Colosseum stood witness to their joyous time.
Welcome to the island of eternal spring and moonlike scenery. Its countless volcanoes, black sands, yellow and reddish rocks, the otherworldly nature – it all gives the very surreal impression of being on the moon. This is how Lanzarote feels. This is where I met the three beautiful humans – Alexa, Alex and their little Luna.
Summertime days in Tuscany start very early. So did we. There we were with Larissa, Jeff and their wonder kids watching the Sun rising over the scenic hills surrounding Volterra. Perhaps sleepy at first, all of us quickly fell under the Tuscan spell. The sun beams ignited our joy, passion and craving for the starting day.
Your family as it it. Your love. Your smiles or even dreams that you dream. Let’s meet for the session and search for the real you. That incredible morning we walked the off beaten paths of Cannaregio in Venice. Sandra, Sebastien, Lilou and Hugo. My heroes and true wonders. Together we explored Venice and rediscovered ourselves.
And you wake up the very first morning in Venice, getting the impression it is a movie you are a part of. It may seem that commedia dell’arte is being played just in front of your eyes. Incredible scenes, unforgettable characters, the masquerade ball. You suddenly realise it is real. This time it is Julia’s birthday.
It was just after our meeting when Stefan said to me ‘From now on, you are a member of our family’. Let’s come closer, become friends. Let’s talk, cry, laugh, create the art together. The results may surprise you. Andrea, Stefan and Steffy brought their aura to Venice and I tried to bring it into photographs.
Colours, tastes, smells and views of Tuscan countryside will never leave you untouched. Juliette and Mohamed’s family can tell. They had always been dreaming of visiting the land of wine, sun and food. We met one summer late afternoon. The sun was golden. The sky was clear. Their dreams came true and brought them dreamy photographs.
