On the streets of a Christmas market - This weekend we visited Edinburgh Christmas market and with no doubt I was keeping my eyes not only in the beauties of the market but also in the people around.

It was really crowded but I had a chance to capture interesting almost normal unfolding life.

Busy chefs



And guess what! A man proposing to his beloved woman! Pity he decided to do so in such dark conditions! :-)



A beautiful lady standing and observing...



and a lady among all her decorations



If you haven't been there yet, I think it is worthwhile a visit! Delicious food, beautiful handcraft and fabulous atmosphere!

First experience exhibiting my work - Last Saturday was my first time to present my photographic work during a Christmas school fayre. I started to work on it about a month in advance and I have to say the experience was fabulous.

I enjoyed all single steps during the process. Since from choosing the photos to display, the design of the photobook, of the flyers and of the gift certificates until arranging all the material on the table. I don't need to say how I was excited each time I received the products from Loxley Colour. I felt like a child again receiving gifts!

My main intention was to make myself known in the region where I am based and what kind of work I could offer to parents with children. The feedbacks I received were very supportive and now I just want to keep exhibiting my work.

Having this experience served to prove to myself how I love photography and how I feel proud of the work I do. My enthusiasm has arisen further even knowing all the obstacles I have to confront. It is and it will always be through my photography that I (am) will be able to express what my soul feels via my conceptual work or to express what others might be feeling via their eyes and expressions.

Can you see through my eyes how I was feeling? :-)

Faces at work - This year finally I've got to know Paraty, a historic city of Brazil coast line. Whenever I heard about it my immediately thoughts would be boats and church. I presume it is because of its famous post cards.
What a charming city! Of course I was most attracted by people around, mainly the ones that maybe are from there and live from tourism selling their art work. Their expression and their care by its products can't be missed. Enjoy some of them!
I will start with a horizon, a beautiful one in the main touristic point of the city. We were all blessed! And to finalise a close up of their main produce! :-)

Latin blood faces! - After a good while without going out to take portraits on the street, I found myself doing what I most like to do. I was on the streets again, observing people, taking unposed photographs and also posed portraits. I have to confess that I was not only wondering around the streets but I was a tourist at the same time. I was visiting Petropolis and Paraty, cosy historic Brazilians towns and Mangaratiba in Rio de Janeiro coast. I took the chance to continue my 100 strangers project. So here I present you some of the people I met, talked and photographed.

This is the Curinga. Yes his name is Curinga as he says. He spends all day in the same clothes in the historic city of Paraty going around trying to entertain people. At night he was still there and when asked to take his photo he showed himself :-) Thank you Curinga for allowing me to include you in my 100 strangers project.

Last days of a bump - This morning I was photographing a bump from a "very soon mum to be" that is not very fond of being targeted by a camera. I don't blame her! :-). Although she was shy to start with, she proved to be a good model. I really enjoyed taking photo of her and observe how the session evolved to a relaxed one. It did to an extent that later on the day, she decided to bring her children to be photographed with her. It was brilliant to capture her beautiful children and their 'relationship' with mum's bump! :-)

When brother and sister get together... - ...the expressions you expect are unbelievable! These two 'angels' were perfect! They were so natural! They were fabulous to work with! Are they not super dooper gorgeous!? I just love working with children and observing their reaction to camera when I don't say much sometimes, allowing them just to be! :-)

Steam makers... - It was a Sunday afternoon and it was bitterly cold. I was with my family at Bo'ness & Kinneil Railway to catch the Santa Steam Special. There was no doubt that my camera was with me. I wanted to capture my daughter's expression at the time she would realise who would be on the train also! However I have to admit that I also wanted to capture the other expressions around.

The atmosphere was brilliant, hiper kids and lovely staff with big smiles on their faces.

For me, my adventure was when we got off the train in order to go to the bridge to catch the other steam train passing along and coming back, so on so forth. It was at this time that when we were going on the train again and I stopped and saw the two fabulous men in charge of the steam train. I loved how they were dressed, how they were smoky and I couldn't miss grabbing a photo of them. I was realised :-)

If you still haven't experienced this small journey with your kids, I would really encourage you to do so. It is magical!! Don't worry I will just post a photograph of the two men, so I don't spoil any surprise!! :-)

When a baby finds a comfy pot... - Last week I had such a gorgeous 10 weeks baby girl in my studio. Her features were so delicate. The session lasted for 4 hours and many of the photos were taken with her showing off big blue eyes. She needed to be fed about three times and while she was getting satisfied with her food, her mum and I were talking calmly about general life. After the feeds the baby was quite settled, but she didn't like much to be lying on her tummy while she was on the bean bag. However she just adored to be in the pot and there she stayed for a good while enjoying her heavy sweet dreams!

A mind realm - While I was visiting Brazil during my last holidays I had the privilege to visit a wonderful place that blowed my mind with astonishment, Mosteiro Sao Jose!
It is located in a wonderful region of Serra do Cipó, MG, Brazil where you can find yourself amid a superb view of the mountains around. I just couldn't believe how peaceful it was there! A perfect place for meditating, no doubt! Being there I was marvelled with all the details. Everything was chosen so carefully. I was transposed to another world and I could see me staying there for some days, having a serious conversation with myself, my soul and having delicious conversation about the meaning of life. I really love it. Getting to know this monastery, I discovered even more about my cousin, Tako. From this beauty he created, I could see the allure of his soul.

A precious perfect gift! - I've just finished working on the photos I took from this gorgeous angel yesterday.This little girl was so good, so well behaved! But two things I've noticed! She doesn't like much her legs covered and she loves to have her hands tight closed! :-) Her brother was so sweet with his little sister, he did so well beside her! I really enjoyed this session and I just want more to come. My problem is that I can't stop taking photos of these wonderful gifts from nature during the sessions!
