About 15+ years ago, Kasia, Ania, and I danced in the same dance company in our hometown of Tomaszow Mazowiecki, Poland. When Kasia reached out to me to take family photos as a Mother’s Day gift for Ania and their mom I was so excited to reunite and spend time photographing their new beautiful family. Unfortunately, earlier that day their mom had a knee injury and was unable to join us.
As we walked through the park taking pictures we had a chance to update each other on our lives a bit. About 3 years ago, when Ania went on a trip to Germany to visit her friends, she met her husband, Patrick. Last year, they got married in Bellagio, Italy and now they have an angel baby boy, Henry. Doesn’t it all sound like the best love story? Henry is such a calm and happy baby, and a smile does not leave his face, as you’ll see. A perfect reflection of them both. Ania and Patrick, call Henry Schatzi, which in German means darling. It fit him perfectly!
At the end of our shoot, we had so much more to learn about each other and just had a great time so we decided to meet for coffee again. Kasia told me all about her travels and life when she lived in Australia for 10 months. She really got me thinking about getting a work/holiday visa and going to Australia for a few months! What do you think, should I do it if I get a chance? Obviously, after the world finds a new norm and the pandemic passes…
It was such a joy to photograph their beautiful family. Scroll through below to fall in love with Henry!
