Beautiful wedding photography for Lovers

Favorites

Category: Personal

What to do when you have read all the books on the shelve? Reread! It is as simple as that, but if I would read every book on there I would be busy years to come. So I decided to pick a top 7 of favorites that I would want to read again.

1. Indelible - Karin Slaugther - This is the first book I read of Karin and I it made me order every book she had written. The suspense between Sarah and Jeffrey and how they got to know eachother with the suspense of a unexplainable murder makes this one of my favorite reads. Many say this is not her best book and they could be true but I can read this one over and over again.

2. Presumed Innocent - Scott Turow - One of the best legal thrillers written. I have this book for maybe 20 years and read it when I was still in school. The clues that Scott provides through out the book are very subtle and in hindsight gives the real murderer away. I also saw the movie but it can not compare to this book which is master.

3. Undercurrents - Ridley Pearson - Again a first for me and a first in a serie of detective Lou Boldt who has a rough period in his job and in his marriage as well. Together with his team they have a serial killer on the loose and the signs of a copycat. Will they be able to prevent another killing. The plot is well put together and I know I raced through because I really wanted to know who did it.

4. The Notebook - Nicolas Sparks - I mentioned it before I cried when I saw the movie and eventhough the book and movie are not alike I cried when I read the book. The way Nicolas can put in to words the love between the main characters is so beautifully done that when Ali the main character has alzheimer and forget who her husbands is, is really heartbreaking to read.

5. The Associate - John Grisham - I am a fan. I have read just about every book he has written and the Associate is a true Grisham. A young lawyer that wants to do everything right and then is confronted with a secret from the past that he thought was well hidden. The young lawyer that manages to outwit all forces around him makes this a top Grisham tail.

6. Mistaken Identity - Lisa Scottoline - I can read the whole series that Lisa had written over and over. I bought a couple of her books at a book fair and thought let's see how good a book costing me no more than 2 euro can be. And it was good, no it was great. I like the way she writes about an all woman law firm and the stories they share.

7. In the Midday Sun - Guy Bellamy - Another one I have for decades and I still love his books. If you like humor than Guy is your guy. I usually take these books with me when I go on vacation because they are mostly situated in Spain and where better to read them than in Spain or any country in the sun. It is usually about money and people got in a strange way or got rid of it quite the same. It makes me laugh every time.

 



New Studio Album

Category: Albums

In the forest of Album Companies I find it difficult to choose. Who has the best options? Who creates the best looking albums that do justice to the photography of a wedding day or portrait shoot. In short which company creates the best albums that fit my clients wants and needs? Well a couple of months ago I found this album company that creates albums world wide. They have a big selection of books but I like to keep it simple. I love clean cut albums that feature the couple and their day.

As clients want albums that can contain a lot of photograph I decided on this album that can have up to 100 pages! Yes you read it right 100 pages. They have a photocover, a slipcover and a case to protect the book. I love the result. This coffee table photo book will be a great way to showcase your wedding day and make sure your memories wil last forever.

If you want to see the album up close and personal, do not hesitate to contact me.

 



DIY Photo booth accessories: mustaches

Category: Photography

Now that photo booths are getting more and more populair it is way more fun to have some accessories to take into the pictures. You can use hats, boa's and big glasses but there is an easy way to create mustaches and lips.

I found some templates on easymakesmehappy as well as a whole lot of felt at meervilt. They have every color of the rainbow. I bought quite thin felt and used the carton of the enveloppe. The mustache turned out really great. You can even use them at a birthday party when taking candids.

Here a step by step how to make a DIY mustache.

1. all required items felt, glue, bambo sticks, scissors and the templates.

2. Cut all mustaches and use the enveloppe to draw the mustaches on

3. Put glue on the carton

4. Glue the mustache on the felt

5. Cut all the mustache out of the felt

6. Glue the bambo sticks to the mustache and let it dry

Et voila here you have the mustaches



State of Zen

Category: Personal

I received this boedha a couple of years ago and put it in the window. When I have a lot on my mind it reminds me to just be still and enjoy this moment. To be in the now. I have read Eckhard Tolle, more on that in other post and everytime I let my mind wonder away from me returning to this moment is just what I need.

It is so easy to only think, to be in my head but that is not what life is about. We only have this moment this second in time. We can only do the best in this moment and realising that has changed my life. Be present, be here, be still and enjoy this moment.



Things I like Friday

It is Friday and I am distracted while writing this post. In fact I think I have started this post four times or maybe even five tmes. I am having difficulty gathering my thoughs and translating them on to the screen. What do I want to say to you the reader. What do I want to share?

Not something deep or profound on this dull Friday, I just want to share stuff that I really like and for some reason I can not find to words to say just that. So instead of making it more difficult by putting words in this post I am just going to show you the stuff I like! Because the images speak for themselves items of Zara, H&M, Amazon, Levi's 572.

Have a great Friday.
