My dear little daughter slept well her day-nap and thus gave me some additional time today, so here I am, with the forth part of the project! This time we met with Yuliya Shumskaya again! The pictures of our local woods inspired her and she offered me to try a funny shoot idea with old record plates. One more unusual idea, and I’ll start to generate them by myself. I feel like I’m training my creativity thanks to the awesome ladies I met during the project! Love this feeling!

Since I have started this project, I have already met three wonderful persons. One of them I already met twice. And I’m so happy I got into this! Not only I got some new pictures of me, what is more, I got new friends!
One of them is Santa Sudraba — a very lovely and beautiful girl. A girl with an open mind and a vision. I really loved her crave for artistic experiments! You can find some of her work on Facebook.
Весна добралась до Риги!
I was terribly bad at updating my blog lately. And it’s not even summer, when we mostly will be living outside (which means no technology except my camera and phone with us through the whole days). I like the idea, but I do wish I had some more time to be able to make more records here. There are so many untold stories that, I’m pretty sure, would be fun or at least nice to remember.
So, the spring is finally here to stay. Not only the beautiful picture with budding flowers and new leaves, but also with a nice warmth in the air. This winter was so long and the coldness was so stubborn, that even mother-nature refused waiting any longer and started to beautify everything around here despite of the chill.
Песня без слов: на нашем балконе
Time to plant something on our balcony!
Почему в основном Маргошка?
Every time I post pictures of my little girl I feel… a little bit sorry because I don’t post as much of pictures of my eldest girls.
На этот раз моей моделью была...
I decided to test the limits of my 135 mm lens today. I really don’t know why I haven’t done it before. The question was how tight in-camera crop I can get with this lens. As a result, I have these series of my self-portraits. It looks like it’s time to change my profile picture on Facebook!
Небольшая воскресная прогулка
We woke up to this beautiful scene yesterday. Snow in March? Nothing unusual for us. Though, we would prefer it in December and January.
Маргоше 2 годика!!
Our littlest lady has turned 2 a few days ago. Look, here she has made a bed for herself!
Табличка для слежения за ходом болезни
The times of me being reckless and not caring about measuring the body temperature of a sick child are gone. Long ago, I used to rely on my gut feeling about it. I prefer to control a situation now. Besides, I want to be able to tell the doctor how exactly the illness developed.
Marge was ill for the past two weeks, her temperature was going up and down all by itself, and I just couldn’t keep everything in my head. So I drew myself this handy template to fill and it actually helped me a lot when we had a doctor appointment. And having a true picture of what is happening helps not to panic beforehand.
Сапожник без сапог. Часть II.
Back in November, I planned a personal project for December 2015. I asked local fellow photographers on my personal Facebook page if they would like to exchange a photo shoot with me. I offered them one hour meeting, when both, them and me, would be a model and a photographer. The truth is, I failed to make the project in time. The project evolves much slower than I would like it to, but the good thing is that it didn’t stop at all. And now I’m ready to show you the second part of it. I’ll remind that the first part was devoted to Yuliya Shumskaya.
This time I was meeting with a photographer, based in Salaspils, but working with her clients mostly in Riga, Yulia Kovalchuk from ArtMelange Studio. I’ll start from telling you how we almost didn’t meet. Like I usually do it, I had been recharging the camera battery pack before the shoot. But this time, I forgot to insert it back! I swear, it’s the first time something like that has happened to me! The moment I realised that it had been left at home I was ready to get on the tram. So I had to return to fetch the battery pack. Luckily, Yulia agreed to wait for me for another 40 minutes!
