Southampton Engagement Photography :: A Stockholm Engagement

couples Engagement family personal portraits Travel

Wow, I’m a bit embarrassed. I have probably sat down to start a blog, a dozen time since my last post. Even now as I write this, I’m wondering if it will actually make it to being published and killing my 3 months of silence in this space. I’ll try to rationalize it in another post, this one is meant for much greater things.

The last stop on our European road-trip was Sweden. I am in love with Sweden. Such a beautiful and amazing place, and I’m lucky enough to have a cousin who lives in Stockholm with her fiancé. Let me just say, exploring a new city while doing an engagement session, has to be one of the best ways to see it. (Remember this London Engagement?) I feel like it opens my eyes to little spots that I wouldn’t typically notice. We had such a fun time with these two, and I’m already trying to figure out how we can get back there.

Here is Alexis and Magnus ::

So much sweetness. Thanks for having us guys. xx

Starting Again
With a fresh look, and a new life! Well, not so much a new life, but a lot is changing at the moment. Firstly, we are no longer living in China. We found out in February that we are expecting a little babe in late October, so we made some plans to get ourselves a bit more settled. Although we loved our life in China and our Xiamen family that live there, we didn't see ourselves having a baby there. We've always wanted to be closer to family, and after almost 9 years together we decided it's time to make that transition and move to the UK. This also means starting again with my business. It all feels a bit daunting. An unfamiliar place, wit ...

Finally! The Holidays!
Whew! So my lack of updating is due to our move to Sunny FL! Well....actually we arrived in FL in the midst of a cold snap, and it's actually been colder here than Seattle (not even joking like 29 degrees).So I've been seriously busy trying to organize furniture for a house so we can stop looking like we're just squatting here with our mattress on the floor. More on Florida later, all I'll say is that we're here, we love the house we're renting and there's lots to share but that's for another post on a different night, including some news on going back to school. How bout those holidays? 5 countries in 3 weeks! We started our trip from ...

Southampton Engagement Photography :: Karl and Nicole
I always try my best, no matter what, to get a couple in front of my camera before their wedding day. Not everyone is used to having a camera pointing at them, and it's often really hard to not go into "cheese" mode when it is. Getting a couple in front of the camera before their wedding day, helps me to coach them a bit and get used to my style of photography. That way, on their big day, they can focus on each other, and that's when the magic happens. However, these two had no problem in front of my camera. It seemed like they had already done it all before. We got to sneak away from the party for a bit to catch that afternoon light that ...
