Well, let's say that you don't have to ask twice if you want to bring your pet to the session with me. It adds so much more fun, you are more relaxed when dealing with your pup and that's when I can get those beautiful candid moments :) And if you bring SEVEN... well that's a whole other level. It was very challenging, but also so fun photoshoot, to say the least!
Enjoy this story and album. And don't forget to get photos with your loved ones. Yes, your pet :)
Throwback post from autumn! I just love autumn photoshoots in the nature. If it's sunny. And warm. You know, the nice-jacket-and-boots-weather. Luckily in Estonia we sometimes have those beautiful days. Nothing is better than to capture these colours with dear friend and give her something to remember.
Don't you love when you meet beautiful people and then they come in front of your camera and magic happens... Well that just happened when I met Amber in a coffee shop in Ubud, Bali. We talked about how we had bad days and good days. And then made it a very good day and went out for a session that started with best gelato in town, and ended with some tacos and great margaritas... I would say #goals!
Travel tip: Best gelato in Ubud is Gaya gelato (trust me, I tried plenty...)
Who loves to wake up at 5AM? Can I see the sea of hands? I thought so. I would hide myself under the table, rip my friends jacket off to get cover and wouldn’t make a sound even if they would tease me with free coffee.
But… did you say sunrise hike with potentially good photos and morning light? Okay, I’m in.
I am just so stoked about these few, but painfully beautiful views and photos from our sunrise hike to Mt.Tapyas. You just can. not. beat. the. morning. light.
Mt.Tapyas is pretty steep hill that basically sits in the Coron town. When you go, plan your time well and consider your fitness level, cause the “hike” is nice with well built stairs, but I mean.. it’s A LOT of stairs (especially for 5AM when your body thinks you’re at sleep… but jokes on you, body). We managed to do it with approx 15min, but we also slept in a little and were in a hurry. So do your planning, sun is not waiting after you. ;)
Honestly, there's not much to do in Coron city other that take a boat to explore other islands around (one or two of the island hopping tours), or to go diving to amazing sites nearby. We still had some time left after doing our PADI diving licences and island tour, so took a good old motorbike and drove around a little. Here's our little day trip in photos.
Our first stop was this Puerto Del Sol Resort & Dive Center what I just randomly picked out when going through Google Maps. It's a very nice resort on top of a cliff, and after visiting the restaurant we could walk around and dream which little bungalow/house we would like to stay if we were rich...
Our first destination in South East Asia was Vietnam. Hanoi is known with it's rich nightlife and especially street food. We found ourselves often taking walks on the busy streets at night and that's why I ended up with lots of photos of nightlife in Hanoi. Mixed with some interesting experiences.
This is a typical view in Hanoi old town - endless bars, endless crowds, cheap beer and even just walking through enjoying the buzz is entertaining :)
This was my first photoshoot that included such a small human. Needless to say I was nervous, feeling that how can I possibly make a connection with her or how can I handle it... But Eneli was so good with her, making her laugh and juggling around so I had nothing to worry about. We were so lucky with the evening light and I was lucky to have such a charming duo in front of the camera... so let the cuteness overload speak for itself. Serious Pinterest material here. What do you think?
No shame to admit that profile pics from 7 years ago maybe needs and update. 15minute session at the back of your office can result with images for all accounts and next 7 years! Cheers to Rauno who managed perfectly camera and me.
Evening walks in beautiful Telliskivi part of Tallinn with you lifelong friend (about 20years now!) at the best time of autumn is just a thing you have to make happen. I remember I was so freezing after the 2 hour walk and talk, but with a big smile on my face (maybe it just freezed there?) cause I couldn't wait to start editing.
