Gratitude – Merry Christmas

I promised myself that 2010 would be the year of no regrets.  I had to remind myself to go for it – and I did.  I had to learn to live in the now and not regretting the past, creating memories as we go along. Children grow, babies become pre-schoolers at the speed of light. It’s hard to embrace that as a mom. But I am trying to be more in the moment.

Pinch me, am I dreaming? I have been blessed so many times this year it amazes me. The talented and amazing people that surround me encourage me to improve and become a better photographer and person. So for those amazing people who have meant so much this year I want to say thank you, from the bottom of my heart!

We are leaving for Norway soon. A country that has stolen my heart!  There, in a cabin in the mountains, we will contemplate the old and renew our energy for the new year to come. We will make our lists of goals for the new year. Small goals and big goals in small steps. Business goals and more importantly, personal goals. I am so looking forward to seeing my family again. They mean so much to me.

Have a blessed Christmas and may 2011 bring you nothing but happiness!

Hope you enjoy our Christmas card and some shots we got in the backyard during our little improvised shoot.

Fondly,

Tanja

Love has no borders

Belgian Suzanne and German Beshar live and work in Switzerland. They were friends and roommates while studying in sunny San Diego before they fell in love. Could there possibly be a more solid basis for a relationship?  Totally romantic! I just love international love stories… Maybe because I am the result of one.

We spent a few hours in wintery fairytale settings at the castle of Brasschaat to do a pre-wedding shoot. This will also be the venue for there wedding reception in August.

I had so much fun with this amazing couple! I can hardly wait to shoot their wedding next summer!

Advent garden

As the snow fell, plans were made… And together with our friends Nancy and Edwin from Pink9Design we set up a wintery fairytale setting in our very own backyard. Hope you enjoy these shots we got.

December may very well be my favorite month of the year.

Warm wishes,T

Sweet table top touches for a wintery wedding. Orchids freeze in the cold… that makes them even more beautiful.

We set this up in our garden… Thanks to Nance’s genious creativity, it was transformed into a winter dream venue.

Details! Nance used a piece of dead wood from one of our oaks. An organic touch inkeeping with the surroundings.

Styling by Nancy at Pink9Design.com. Thanks to our boys for hauling everything outside and being good sports! Oh and for staying on the path and not messing up the snow blanket.
