Mint, the New-Zealand style café in Sliema, which serves fresh, seasonal homemade food, is also offering something for their customers’ eyes to feast on during December and January. Their walls are hosting a small, eclectic collection of photography by Anne Muscat-Scerri and Amanda Holmes.
Anne and Amanda usually concentrate on family and child photography, so this display marks a departure – in fact there’s not a person in sight, let alone a child. (more…)
For Ella’s birthday, I finally got the opportunity to take some lovely spring photos of her. Just look at her: that hair!
Her younger sister Kiera came along, a natural in front of the camera! In my experience from shooting sibblings, it’s almost always the younger one who is the showman of the family, who usually loves the camera and just shoot off one winning face after the other…
The photos were taken up in Ghajn Tuffieha. Using the lovely, soft morning light, we created some stunning photos of the children. This one is one of my favourites:
How beautiful isn’t this… Ingunn with her one year old son, Niklas.
Ingunn and her young family has recently moved from Norway to Malta. To celebrate Niclas’ first year, she wanted a photoshoot of him. Very active model, luckily his love for his bright blue plastic chair got him sitting still for a few seconds!
When the chair didn’t work, Ingunn gave him a book as a distraction. It worked really well! For a minute or so…
We finished off with some photos of mother and son together. Not just a really cute kid, but a mother who looks fab too!
As summer started to go to an end, I met up with Jocelyn and her baby boy, gorgeous Craig. This photoshoot had been planned for months and months, but was put on hold as Jocely was diagnosed with cancer and had to go through a very dramatic operation. I am so relieved it all went well, and it is almost surreal what she has been through since we first started to talk about doing a photoshoot of her baby.
We were shooting in Bidnija, a tiny little village on a hilltop overlooking St Paul’s Bay, Malta. We were using one of Malta’s amazing wedding venues, full of natural light, which helps to create amazing photos. Being a natural light child photographer, I wanted to move in!
With a model like this, it was nearly impossible to stop. Cooperative babies are fantastic to work with – one photo after the other was great. Hope you enjoy them too!
