Wedding reportage: Jana & Grzegorz

Today I'd like to share a few highlights from Jana and Grzegorz's wedding coverage.

The main purpose of wedding coverage is to tell the story of the day and to capture all of the emotions that are intertwining throughout. I like my wedding reportage to be as real as possible, so when you look back you remember how nervous you were before entering the church and how happy you felt when you've been standing opposite your loved one. I like to capture smiles and happy tears and everything worth remembering.

Millie

Few snaps from my photoshoot with little Millie :) I was using mainly natural light and a small artificial studio light. I didn't use many props to keep this session as simple as possible. What do you think?

Natalia and Henry

Recently I had another photo shoot with gorgeous Natalia and little Henry, but this time we went to the Royal Botanic Gardens in Edinburgh. Surprisingly, the weather was really sunny, so instead of looking for some sun, we were looking for a shadow :)

Last Month

I spent last month with my loved ones - family and friends - enjoying time together. After my son was born I realized that time flies so quickly. Every moment that is gone will never happen again, so I'm trying to capture on photographs as many of them as possible. I love to observe how my son is developing and changing, but on the other hand I wish he could stay so tiny forever...  He's nearly 3 months now x

BONUS VIDEO

I was wondering where my husband / second shooter / partner in crime is taking our son for a daily walk. Yesterday I have revealed his secret ;)

My Maternity Photoshoot

Last Saturday we had a fun day out with my husband Mat (who is usually present during the photoshoots as my second shooter) photographing my last month of being pregnant :) I believe that capturing other people's precious memories is just as important as to be a part of those memories too - so I was finally in front of the camera.

Maternity Leave – up and coming!!

I should have put this up a few weeks ago but I guess I have been too excited about welcoming our baby into the world in a few short weeks!

At present I am still taking on newborn and toddler sessions in my home studio, but no location sessions due to the amount of equipment I need to bring. I will be going off on maternity leave at the beginning of April 2016 and I plan to start taking on sessions again around July 2016 for Newborn/Toddler/Maternity and August-September for Weddings.

If you would like to book a session around that time get in touch: contact@gostepska.com

I will post pics of our little bundle of joy once it's here! But in the meantime, I will show you some of my favourite snaps from the photoshoot with super cute Mike!
