As soon as I arrived in Tellaro I went into “photography-mode” .. Photography mode is a state only known to photographers or those who love photography in which they can’t do anything else but shoot and shoot and shoot.. Everything you see has to turn into a picture..Even the beautiful landscapes of Tellaro..you don’t see them anymore as landscapes but as how they would look in the eye of your lens…My partner, bless him, knows when I get into this “state” and he kindly let me zone out for the day..while he takes after our child and makes sure I don’t get lost:)


Appena arrivati in Tellaro sono entrata in “photography-mode”.. Photography mode é uno stato conosciuto solo a fotografi o amanti della fotografia in cui non possono fare altro se non scattare, scattare e scattare..Tutto quello che vedi deve risultare in una fotografia..Anche i bellissimi paesaggi di Tellaro..non li vedi più come paesaggi ma a come verrebbero catturati dalla lente della fotocamera..Il mio partner, poverino, sa ormai quando entro in uno di questi stati e mi lascia stare per la giornata..nel mentre si prende cura del nostro bimbo e si assicura che tra gli scatti non mi perda nel paese:)

I think I’m not alone here in saying that if somebody told me that I could pick any job in the world I would say straight of the bat

I would love to be a National Geographic photographer!! It’s just my dream job as it combines travel and photography..


Well, sometimes we don’t realise how hard it is to capture those stunning images. Today, in honor of Wes Skiles, a National Geographic’s photographer who died on the job in 2010, The Photo Society, a website run by some of his fellow co-workers, speaks up about the dangers these amazing photographers encountered while on assignment for the magazine.

There have been several deaths before and many many incidents. Acid dripping caves, vipers in camera bags, getting lost in the Andes, flesh eating parasites, being buried in an avalanche just to name a few..

here you can find a full list..

on a second note..I’ll keep shooting weddings!!:)

but so much respect goes out there to the ones who dare doing such an amazing and yet dangerous job



I’m so late in posting these pictures! Raphael was born the 6th of February 2014 and he is the son of Pam and Chris, a beautiful and super sweet couple whose wedding I photographed the previous year. I am so lucky to be able to see and be an active participants of all the big steps that some couples make!

Meglio tardi che mai! Raphael é nato il 6 febbraio 2014. I genitori, Pam e Chris, sono una belissima e romanticissima coppia il cui matrimonio ho avuto l’onore di fotografare l’anno prima. Uno degli aspetti più belli del mio lavoro é sicuramente l’essere in grado di seguire la crescita di alcune coppie ed essere al loro fianco nei momenti più importanti della loro vita.


What an amazing time we had in Tuscany!!! The wine, the food, the weather, the colors…everything was so perfect.. But to top it off we stayed at an amazing Villa: Villa le Ginepraie.

If you ever contemplate going to Tuscany this is the place to go. A beautiful Tuscan casa sorrounded by endless hills, in the middle of nowhere and yet only 20 minutes away from Volterra, with your own private swimming pool..What more could you ask for?

(the first 9 pictures are taken at the Villa)

Beautiful Maya turned 1 in one of the hottest day that Mornington could have, back in January 2014. There were about 45 degrees. It was scorching hot and definitely the location wasn’t indicated for this type of weather..no beaches, no ocean..just hills and hills and hills.. Maya’s nana was leaving the next day to Germany so it had to be done! And I’m so happy we made it all alive!:)Luckily there were some giant trees were Maya could rest and enjoy the shade. Maya’s family also came prepared with a bucket of cool water so that she was able to go in and have a splash!
