Frozen garden

An improvised and last minute post! I still can’t believe it is snowing here in Sicily, just one mile away from the beach. I was so excited this morning when I saw the snow falling down to the ground from a transparent sky, that I could not stay in bed, and despite the cold and my unsuitable outfit, I went out to take a few pictures. What a magic end of the year!

Another myself

I have photographed Silvia in a cold December morning, a few weeks ago. Now that I am back to Italy for the Christmas holidays, I finally found the time to edit the pictures, and I must say I really love their mood (a little bit unusual from me). I take the occasion to wish you all a Happy New Year!

Brennig & Kriza

Last October I photographed the wedding of this lovely couple, at the Oxford Town Hall. It was a great, moving, and sweet ceremony and I hope these photos will make you breathe the love everyone enjoyed that evening! I use this occasion to wish a life full of happiness to Kriza and Brennig and to thank them for letting me share these lovely images.

Jump, smile, and have fun

I usually like to think carefully about my photo-shoots before contacting the models and starting to work on them, but the day I decided to take the photos you’ll see below, I said to myself: just have fun and find a way to communicate happiness. The original project wanted a sunny day, but lately, in England, sunny days are so rare that I am wondering: will I take all the photos I want in the next months, should I change my plans for a while, focusing on a different kind of photography? Maybe somehow, like last winter, I will find a way, despite the weather, to exercise my creativity without sacrificing my ideas.

A special thanks to the lovely Silvia Pace, who faced with the cold wind with a big smile!
