Alicia’s Maternity Session

Oct2014-Maternity-01
 The proud mother to be wanted her session outside, I suggested one of the more picturesque locations an expectant mother could safely navigate. In our pre-session consultation we decided on the concept and I suggested beautiful Loterie Farm.Sep2014-Yudelki-3048

Just an hour before the session some dark clouds blew in, and the skies opened up and my client started to worry. I wasn’t as it was just a passing cloud and it helped us out on two fronts: it cooled the place down, September in St Martin is super hot and it provided a natural diffuser to that afternoon light.

The fact that it wasn’t too hot allowed us to get all the shots we wanted with minimal discomfort to a mother in her last trimester.

July 1st Emancipation Day and my Heritage Photography Project

I’ve been going around the island photographing Elements of our Natural, National and Cultural Heritage for the past 3 years. It’s been a labor of Love a Project that I have poured my heart and soul into. Yet it’s is still very much a work in progress but I felt that today was a good day to unveil some of the images in commemoration of the first official celebration of Emancipation day.

My hope is to one day hold a showing of this Project.

Bellow are just a few images from the Project.  You can Find more pictures from the Heritage Project here

 

And you can listen to the St Martin Song here

 

 

 

 

First order out the door!

 

My first order went out the door early April. I’m particularly proud of it. The images were stunning if I do say so myself. I’ve been having some health issues and my relatives have spent some time in some sad looking waiting rooms in the past few months, before being released and when I was strong enough to walk around I visited those waiting rooms.

So when I was thinking on how to thank the hospital staff I thought of something that I could make (personal touch) that the staff and other families and patients could enjoy. I decided on 20×16 size prints of some of my favorite pictures, with thank you letters and candy baskets. Who doesn’t love candy? right?

 

Here are the images i printed

What do you see?

This past Sunday on a hike, per usual, I was taking way to many pictures and probably holding the group up. I saw some mushrooms growing out of some cow droppings. So naturally I stopped to take some pictures. A fellow hiker comes up to me and says ”You know your taking pictures of a turd, right?”

This made me laugh, where I saw the mushrooms, new life, new beginnings, she just saw cow poop!

I guess this says a lot about how I view life and what I hope to show through my photography.

Here is the result of my cow turd photoshoot!

Photo Safaris

I like to go on what I call photo safaris. I just grab my camera and head out. No particular destination or subject in mind. Sometimes it’s a close a my back yard, sometimes to lands far away or to the nearest pond, beach, mountain top or roundabout.

No matter how far I roam, how many places I visit, there’s not a week that goes by that my breath is not taken away by the beauty that is St Martin.

Where one might see traffic jams, I see birds fishing in the pond  or a gorgeous sunset. Where one might see too many retail stores, I see the traditional architecture or a flamboyant tree taking over.
