As the end of this year is getting closer we are summing up all of it.
With the birth of our little baby, Szaffi, and her amazing development we are getting near to the end of our most exciting and also most tiring year ever.
It wasn't the only aspect of our life though, there were numerous challenges and unforgettable moments at work as well.
We have still a couple of sessions to show you, the following one has a special place in our heart.
We know Ola by sight for long, but I wasn't sure about this on that lazy afternoon, when we set out for a walk with Szaffi.
Our little lady was fast asleep so we had time to talk about the important matters in life, when a Mama with her two children came across.
They were a real phenomena and I left my eye on them involuntarily. Their style, their aura... It took only a second and I had this feeling under my skin that wow, I really wish we could photograph them.
A second slips away quickly, we have passed by but I was still staring at them, and that Mama smiled back at me. I felt ashamed as it's not very polite to stare at someone but Gabor left me no time to think about it as he was poking me, saying: hey Szandra, we know them! Oh, if only it was true...! But where do we know them from?
Gabor was already running after them and it turned out that on an easy Sunday morning carboot sale we bought some clothes for Szaffi from this family. Well, that's how much I can rely on my memory when it comes to faces. So Gabor took the lead and we were laughing together at the corner of the street.
A couple of weeks had to pass before we had the chance to have a session with them but it was worth the wait.
We had only a short hour to take the pictures and every minute of it was inspiring for us.
Ola's aura, the honesty of the kids, their raw energy and untameable curiosity swept us off our feet.
Ola was apologising for the children running around everywhere and we could not be happier to get so many spontaneous moments.
We are really grateful for letting us do this session and we truly hope that next year will bring us some more wonderful afternoons together.
To shoot an engagement session is a true present.
This is the point in time when the couple is getting closer to their wedding day, and it feels good to let go of all the worries and just focus on themselves and each other.
Sisi and Tibi are very good friends of ours and we have received our invitation to their wedding on the day of this session. This is going to be the first wedding in our life where we will arrive as guests, not as professionals — we can't wait!
However, we really wanted to do their engagement shoot — we know their different faces, their love, we knew our collaboration will turn out to be something really cool.
Being in front of the camera is not new to them, but this time we were interested in their true feelings.
This approach was square one for this photo shoot on a wonderful autumn afternoon. When we started to do the post production work we even forgot to breath.
We love that passion, that love, that delicate expression on their faces. They look so stunning!
Sisi and Tibi, thank you for letting us do this shoot, and we are excitedly looking forward to your wedding day.
Whenever we are in a shop selling babyclothes we always look for Szaffi's outfit that would suit the occasion - it’s not an easy choice :)
Sending hugs to you,
Szandra, Gabor and Szaffi
Do you remember, when you were a 4 years old little girl, playing with her dolls "afternoon tea party"?
Tiny cups and pretty dresses, home made cookies and polite sentences to each other - nice memory for all of us :)
And the best thing is that I was invited to a real baby shower like that!
We spent few hours in a cozy tea house, only girls, had a nice chat, fine sweets, warm tea - and all the blessings for Ildi's baby girl <3
Thank you for having me, I can't wait to have a little walk together with the little ones!
One of our favourite experience to meet lovely people.
Ivett and Kornel - they are a fantastic couple! Their little girl made so clever decision when she chose them as parents <3
Thank you for the wonderful day, we can't wait to hug your tiny little baby and all of you, as a beautiful family.
With lots of love,
Sandra, Gabor and Szaffi (of course :))
your 3rd month with us was such a busy month.
We had plenty of new situations, spent wonderful time with friends, probably we found your husband :D and the most important: your uncle Bence was with us for 2 and a half weeks.
We're so proud of you little girl, you are just gorgeous <3
Happy 3 month-day for you ;)
Mum and Dad
The first moment with Bence was speechless....
This is the latest photo of you (made by phone, 15 minutes ago).
You look like a wise Angel in every single moment.
And now, you are sleeping on my lap. This is one of my favourite feeling in our life.
2015 was just fantastic for us, it was full of magical moments, and some of them could be captured by us.
Let us to speak our fav photos instead of us.
We wish you all the best for 2016 <3
Sandra & Gabor
Sometimes it takes so long time to meet a couple who wants to have photos of themselves.
Tundi sent her first e-mail to us in the beginning of 2014!
Lots of thing has changed since that, but the most important things are still the same:
they are in deep love with each other, want to have photos and we're still happy to take those for them :)
On a lovely Thursday they came to Bournemouth, had something to eat together and we went to take a long walk together.
It was a fantastic day!
We were talking, laughing, walking a lot, and it was so touching for us to see how beautiful the love between this man and woman.
We hope to meet again soon and thank you for the lovely present what you gave our little baby girl :) We can't wait to use it :)
With lots of love.
Sandra and Gabor
We love to take photos of the kids on the most common places.
E.g. beach or playground, where they feel familiar, confident, happy and open-hearted.
Instead of us let's speak the pictures :)
See you soon on your favourite place ;)
Sandra & Gabor
Let us introduce Zsofi to you!
Ups, sorry :)
Here is Zsofi:
Zsofi is a Hungarian, clever, cheeky girl - one of our best friend's daughter.
As we mentioned in our last post, we really enjoy to be with the families on a usual day and capture the best, spontaneous, truly honest, funny and emotional moments.
Betti, we want to say a huge thank you for all the lovely days we've spent with you and your wonderful family - we can't wait to see you again!
Alexandra Szigeti and Gabor Csako
