Summer Day

Here is a recipe for perfect summer day.  Pack some sandwiches and wine.  Drive 30 min from Gdansk towards thousands of lakes.  Take bubbles.  And swimsuit (or not).  Nature will do the rest...

Boudoir Session

I just couldn't wait, all that magnificent light, sexy furniture, and dark mysterious brows of my sister, Malgosia...  The mood of this place calls for boudoir session, but it wasn't actually a session, more of a chasing Malgosia with my camera before she will get mad, here we go:

My Hometown

After surviving 2 weeks of fighting a serious limitation of  packing just 2 bags  for the whole summer with 50 pounds  each, I landed with my daughter in Poland - land of daily baked sourdough bread, couple dozen types of potato and best vodka in the world (with many reasons and occasions to drink it), where people kiss you three times on the cheeks with biggest, brightest smiles and then cry on your shoulder telling you all their pains and sorrows in the same minute...   The land where talks about life are deep and last till dawn, and soul searching are found in the super strong coffee...   I know, you might thing 'what the... she is talking about', and you are right, it might be nostalgia, but I love coming back here.  This time I had a 3 year break, so all the tastes, smells and colors are particularly strong and fill me inside out and I fill like a ballon that can never burst, I just take everything in and in and in... Poland is not a sunny island with palm trees and mango martinis, but its all good.  beauty can be found.

I stay with my beautiful sister, indulging in her sisterly warm and tasty meals in her ultra sexy and fabulous apartment in Gdansk, historic port city, that has a lot to offer... but did I say SEXY?  Boudoir. Session. Heaven.   To be continued...

Stacey and Peter

This past Saturday I had a pleasure to photograph Stacey and Peter wedding.  They met in the gym where Stacey is an awesome instructor and dance choreographer.  I adore summer weddings, and this one was very laid back in Peter's parents backyard.  The day was full of summer dresses, summer flowers, and some soft summer rain.  And tones of sweet love:

In the garage:

Stacey and her hard dancer's body:

After dinner, bride entertained the crowd and her new husband with a hip-hop performance to "their" songs!

Weekend in the City

Love weekends in the City...  this Saturday was a little rainy, but for taking pictures whatever the weather! 

Sunday.  As always, love Washington Park! Kids are such a wonderful subjects.

The girl with ponytails would really trade her hullahop for that jump in the water...

Then I let my man carry the camera,

and he caught me going bananas over noodles...

and between the racks...

Everybody who knows me, know that I don't mess around when it comes to food.  Especially deserts.  That raw-vegan cheesecake with raspberries on top had my name on it! (from my favorite Pure Food and Wine restaurant take out)

Sunset at the Beach

Photo of me by Amos, my hubby.

I am a collector of a blissful places...   I am so lucky to live by the one of the most beautiful beaches I ever experienced - Robert Moses - where the light of the south shore is amazing, the waves are dramatic and wild and create the most magical mist, the vast spaces makes you wanna run, jump and just go crazy.  What a feast for your eyes and soul!
