like mother, like daughter (and son!)

took this of alice one week before her second birthday. a girl after my heart. the nikon f55 wasn’t loaded but she has a good grip! the future is looking bright.

but big brother is not far either. he also loves cameras. and my iphone. now the kids also “own” an instagram feed, filled with their iphone/ipod only photos. @aliceandroberto

splash!

we would walk around beach almost every night until past sunset. it was amazingly relaxing. the kids loved to explore and throw rocks in the water (and occasionally get splashed by waves crashing on the shore). the beach is so different at night, when everyone is gone.

portraits of a summer afternoon

so we are back. it was an amazing month. filled with adventures and a lot of memories. yesterday i started developing some film. only got through two rolls before i became the afternoon jetlag victim. will get through the other 4 rolls soon. the bazillion color film rolls i shot will hopefully be mailed out today.

a word to my kids.

oh roberto, i have no idea how you were born so allergic to the camera. hope that changes soon.
love,
(very frustrated) mommy

alice, i love you. but you have to stop moving so fast, because manual focus ain’t that easy.

fifteen minutes

fifteen minutes of our lives, in our front yard. it was a windy afternoon.

i don’t particularly love my tired, makeup-less face after a long day with the kids but i don’t get many pictures with the kids so i’ll take it.

the one and only

there is just something about closeup portraits that i really love. recently, i added a close-up filter to my hasselblad set-up and finally had the chance to try on someone. love it. this wasn’t shot super wide open (I think f/5.6 probably) so i’m really excited to see what comes out at f/2.8
