Stephanie Sterjovski // "a quick coffee"

Tuesday, October 30, 2012

Last week I met up with Stephanie Sterjovski for a quick coffee at shops@don mills.  Stephanie is a photographer, graphic designer (check out her print shop) and also lifestyle/fashion blogger (her outfits are always fab)...busy gal huh? It was great to chat about photography, blogging and all that in between...of course what's a quick coffee without a little photo-op? Don't you love Stephanie's sweater from Anthropologie? 

Second part of the shoot coming up this week, stay tuned!

Lots of love, 
Anna

New week and lots of rain to come which means evenings spent cuddled up on the couch watching movies by the fire..

Family Portraits, my grandfather

"Taking photographs of the people you love is a privilege, not a right and shouldn't be taken for granted" - me

This is the phrase that kick started this personal project about one year ago.  Those of you who have been following annawithlove for a while will know how important family and friends are to me.  I don't like to take things for granted, I feel blessed and lucky to be able to take photographs of the people I love.  What better way to use my creativity and talent than to make wonderful memories that will last forever.

The Idea: Two portraits, one conceptualized portrait and one traditional portrait.

Here we go...up first my papou (aka. grandfather)


title: "King of the Garden"

When I think about my papou, I think immediately of summer, him smiling, working away in his garden.  Ohhh the garden.  His pride and joy, it's the best on the block! There was never a question as to where I would photograph him, it was always "Papou, I'm coming to take your portrait......yes of course in the garden!" (except in Greek)


My papou is one of the most entertaining and funny people I know just in the way he is.  I love observing him, he has an extreme case of selective hearing and his reactions to conversations and situation around him are priceless.  I could watch him all day.  He has a kind spirit and is always happy.  He also has an uncanny ability to fall asleep on command or sometimes even in the middle of a conversation...amazing.  My family jokes that I have such a soft spot for him but when you are so naturally funny and entertaining without knowing you are how can he not be my soft spot.  I'm pretty sure I'm his favorite grandchild...shh don't tell the others!

Lots of love,
Anna
