Little Lia in The Outer Banks

A hearty thank you to Nirit and Thiemo, who met up with me on the beaches of the Outer Banks for a rather serene and lovely shoot, bringing along their sweet treasure, little Lia. And another itty bitty one, still in process 🙂

Nirit was referred to me by her close friend Brandy Cardarelli, a fellow photographer and mom to two little peanuts now, only one of whom I have photographed … so far!

And, even cuter, sweet Lorenzo and little Lia are best buddies.

The timing of turning around prints and canvas pieces has been tricky, though, as they are returning back to Europe, I am currently in South America, and Lisa – our heroic studio director – is in North America, trying to do her best to manage the timeline.

We soooo appreciate your gorgeous patience with all of this, Nirit, those pieces will be arriving directly to your home in Germany very shortly! We have loved working with you in North Carolina and look forward to doing so again when I am in Europe next.

Maybe we can coordinate it with Brandy & Fabio’s next trip to Italy … just do the whole shoot on the Spanish Steps?

I had posted this image, months before, a sneak preview, now hanging as a beautiful canvas in our studio:

I love, love this one!

more wall portrait canvas goodness…

And, if you couldn’t tell, I’m now at the bottom of this post 😉

    Oh Tamara, you’ve caught the cute and cuddly Cordes family at their, well, cutest! Of course we would only trust you to capture the ‘family’ on the Spanish Steps, or perhaps at the Trevi fountain…(You’ve got to see Lia’s best "Sylvia" and Lorenzo as Fellini. Most impressive for 2-year olds.) Shall we meet in say, 2012?

    And what a sweet bottom it is ! Look at those gorgeous cheeks. Thank you, Tamara, for this exceptional and unforgettable shoot! Our memories of three incredible years in the States will be forever tied to your outstanding talent and these amazing images, including the one of our pretty daughter’s butt cheeks!
    (The memory of you and Lia rolling around in the sand is stored in our minds, the rest is on canvas!) And October 26 2012 it is! See you at the BOTTOM of the stairs!

    For those who wonder, there is a reason we never tire of the images you share. It is because you have a beautiful ability to showcase the love shared by your subjects – the first two images are so timeless – love them.

    every time I look at one of these images, I get the reminder of how lucky we are to have this family as clients – they are not only gorgeous photographically, but incredibly kind, loving and warm people. Nirit, Thiemo, and Lia, we are blessed to know you, and I can promise that everything is on its way to you very soon – I uploaded it to our lab yesterday! :)) all our love to your family from across the Atlantic, and on down to the Southern Hemisphere to the Lackeys!

    Tamara, these pictures are so incredibly beautiful! I have known Nirit for such a long, long time now and please believe me that I have never seen her captured so well in a photo (let alone a series of) – ever. Glowing with happiness, joy for life, sometimes quiet, always affectionate, and genuinely in love with her expanding little family and head over heels for this perfect and precious little girl that is her daughter.

    It makes me miss my best friend a little more with every perfect shot because they all seem so true to life. The way you see Nirit, Thiemo and Lia in these photographs is how this family really is. They make me miss her more but they make me so happy, too, because you can tell in each and every one how happy and what wonderful people they are. AND they double my exitement about having them home soon and in many ways still the same as I’ve always known them.

    Can’t even point out a favorite – but I really love, love, love, love the fourth and fifth from the top and the one of Nirit and Thiemo hugging in the dunes. So Nirit. So Thiemo.

    Oh, and Nirit! Totally agree with you on those butt cheeks. Absolutely flawless. 🙂
