Make Appointments. When booking your salon and spa appointments, be sure to follow the timeline on the Beauty Guide I will give you. Many treatments are time-sensitive, (example: waxing your brows shouldn’t be booked too close to your shoot to avoid redness).

Drink More Water. We all know water is important, yet we still forget to drink enough. Start now. Get a pretty bottle like this might help. 

Avoid the Sun. Sunburns and tan lines are portrait ruiners.

Use sunscreen and stay in the shade.

Don’t Pick (or Bite). Especially your skin, lips, and nails.

Develop a Pinterest Addiction. Use our shared pin board to design your dream photo shoot and get wardrobe and styling inspiration.

Sweetest little sisters. I am melting!! Don't you think? This is a little peek into Kiana's 8-month session. I loved how mama Eleanor styled them. 

To my dear readers, I am trying to keep up with my blog, so I will try to keep them nice and short, so I actually don't get overwhelmed and don't blog at all. 

Have an amazingly sweet day!


Dear Mariko, Jonathan & Matty,
You guys are such a sweet and beautiful family! I loved our session so much. Mariko, you are such a stunning expecting mom! You glow from within. Thank you so much for asking me to take your portraits! Oh, Matty has grown so much! He is so big, so adorable and talking so cute. I am sure he is going to be a great big brother. So exciting! I am so curious how baby girl will look! Oh, I can't wait to hold little Princess! 
Big hugs and kisses,


Dear Gorgeous Mama-to-be Leela and Papa-to-be Zeljko,

I had so much fun with you two on our time together!! You had the best look for what I was going for and I am blown away by your stunning beauty, your glorious goddess form and glow. I love your style, the sweet accessories you brought along were perfect! Also how open you were to my suggestions and to my ideas, so this session really just fit both of our style so perfectly. I hope that when your precious bundle of joy is born that you two will enjoy looking back to these memories when your little one was still in your belly. I already know your little girl is going love these images and you two will be wonderful parents.

Seeing you two lovely people so happy together and the look on both of your faces - the oh-so-tender looking-forward-to-becoming-parents-soon expression, truly brought me so much fond memories of my own pregnancy with my daughter. So excited for you two! I can't wait to meet baby girl! I wish you a brilliant rest of your pregnancy.

with love,





I feel always so excited when expecting moms calls me for a maternity session. One reason being that I loved my pregnancy with our daughter. It was such a beautiful and exciting time. I felt so good and happy. I remember I felt on top of the world. 

Now, I know that let alone a "good" pregnancy, but any pregnancy should not be taken for granted. I have myself experienced two miscarriages, and I heard from many couples who have experience difficulty getting pregnant. I feel for you, the frustration and disappointment. I have been there.  I truly wish that every couple who wishes to have children shall have their wish granted. So that's the reason why I am all for celebration when it comes to pregnancy. We should celebrate and cherish this very special time of our lives. Also, for our children, to show them where they came from! Our daughter loves those images of her in my belly. 

Back to this gorgeous expecting mom on this post. Viviane called me and told me that she would like to have some beautiful portraits of her and her glorious baby bump. She wants to surprise her partner with a gorgeous wall art print. Viviane looked stunning as she walked in the door, she feels fit and happy. She has this fire red hair, her back and arm are adorned with intricate poetic colorful tattoos. Such a cool looking expecting mom! I knew right away the cool images I can make with her style. Like a natural, we moved through different poses and focus. Here are the results. Thank you Viviane for your permission to share these images! You rock! 

If you are an expecting mom and is thinking about a maternity session. Here are some tips on how to prepare for your maternity session

7 tips to look breathtaking on your wedding day

Basel Wedding

You're the bride - so you're going to be photographed a LOT. Here are some pointers for feeling like a pro in front of the camera all day long!

1. Find & hire a photographer who you really click like
Try to meet a few photographers to find the one who shares your vision and whom you can trust. If you don't get on well with your photographer, how can you expect to feel comfortable in front of their camera?

2. Getting your hair and makeup done professionally
But make sure it's your 'style'! You want to look the best possible version of yourself.
Trials for your hair and make-up are both essential for guaranteeing you feel comfortable on your wedding day. I recommend having your makeup test done on the day of your engagement session, talk about getting two birds with one stone. Also, make sure you have a pocket mirror available so you can check before the photographing begins that your lipstick is in place and there is no lipstick on your teeth or mascara smudges. 

3. Practice some poses you like in advance
Get some inspirations from magazines or blogs. Share these poses with your photographer. But don't over think it, practice holding a bouquet naturally. It is probably the first time you wear a big gown as well! Get your future husband to help out as well. Share these visions with him. 
That's why an engagement session is so important. I never shoot a wedding without an engagement session. 

4. Similarly, practice smiling with your eyes
No matter how happy you are on your wedding day, smiling for hours can be tricky. Smiling too much can also create crow feets around your eyes. Do practice in front of the mirror, a soft smile which comes through the eyes, and doesn't show your gum or lower teeth is much more flattering. Try 'The Squinch' (a technique coined by celebrity photog Peter Hurley).

5. Make sure you allocate enough time for your bride & groom pictures!
I know you want to enjoy your big day but please allocate at least 30 - 45 minutes quiet times for your bride & groom portraits. Trust me, you don't want to have to rush through them. It is the best perfect time for the two of you to take a breather as well. Do your research in advance: pick out gorgeous locations at your venue and share that with your photographer. Also, have plans for both indoor and outdoor images just in case of the weather.

6. Avoid drinking too much before your wedding photos
One glass of getting ready champagne is fine. Three shots of Tequila to steady your nerves, not so good. The last thing you want to do is look slightly drunk in front of the camera.

7. Consider your posture
Stand up straight, ladies! Think ballerina. Good posture is an instant way to look stunning on your wedding day - holding your shoulders back elongate your neck and can truly work wonders. Two other quick modeling tricks I learned that can subtly alter your appearance: lift your chin up a touch to make your neck look longer and eliminate double chin, also avoid holding your arms close to your body to make them look slimmer. 

I hope these tips will help you to prepare and look breathtakingly beautiful for your big day! If you have any tips or tricks that you rely on, please do share it with us in the comment below.
As always, celebrate all the little moments & accomplishments in your daily life.
