A parenting magazine Pere & Kodu asked me to set a table for Easter that all family members would like and to include some kids in a photo shoot. Being a mother of a pre-school kid and a childrens' photographer I know that the youngest family member always sets the tone. So you better make that kid really happy.Read More
The sacred juniper at Kataveski is a single tree surrounded by fields and can be seen from far. It's said to be 200-300 years old. It really makes you wonder about the ancient times and things this tree has witnessed. It's situated in my neighboring village, just a ten minute walk from where I live.

1-2-aastasi lapsi on peaaegu võimatu panna täiskasvanute moodi käituma ja käsu peale otse kaamerasse vaatama.

See aeg, kui vaimustus, rõõm, kiindumus, viha, väsimus, nälg ja veel sada muud tugevat tunnet mahuvad loetud minutite sisse, on tagantjärele vaadates nii lühike. Väikelapsed on imelised, sest suudavad lühikese ajaga end nii mitmest küljest kaamerale avada. Ehk peaksid täiskasvanud hoopis neist eeskuju võtma?!Read More
