City of Parks: warm family photos from Prague
Remember these beauties? I took photos of Iryna and her daughter Masha in the botanical garden a year ago. Iryna was waiting for the greatest miracle — a new life. This time, I have returned to Prague to photograph them with the newborn Katya.
No, it’s no make-believe, we are in downtown Prague, not in the countryside. I love this city for the endless parks you can wander all day in. And only a strip of houses on the horizon reminds you of being in a million-person city, overloaded with tourists and cars.
The idea of the location, by the way, belongs to the eldest daughter Masha. It is amazing to see how she has grown since the last photo session, how touching she cares for her sister.
Of course, baby Katya has set the mood for the entire photo session. She is spontaneous and natural, like grass, trees and wildflowers. Iryna and Masha are also delightful in their natural beauty. Sunny colors, freckles and wind in their hair are little details that hide something more. For these girls, to be together, to have fun, to care for each other are the most natural things in the world. Just like to breathe or wake up in the fresh of the day.
And the photos of this day will long remind of the threads that invisibly but firmly connect them.
Family photoshoot in expectation of a new person
I adore Prague and visit it quite often. During that visit Irina asked me to organize a family photo shoot - to shoot her, being 8th month pregnant, together with her eldest daughter Masha while walking through the marvelous botanical garden.read more
