Holiday Travels – Mombasa Part 2

“A child’s world is fresh and new and beautiful, full of wonder and excitement. It is our misfortune that for most of us that clear-eyed vision, that true instinct for what is beautiful, is dimmed and even lost before we reach adulthood.”
Rachel Carson

While on our Mombasa family trip we decided to make a visit to Mamba Village so my Niece could get to see live crocodiles. I was kinda excited to see how she will react to the animals and she totally surprised me how fearless she was towards them. She didn’t even shy when it came to holding the baby crocodile. I think we grown ups got more nervous about it and gave her a crocodile egg to hold instead.

Spending time with kids has a lot benefits and I think one of the best ones is seeing things a fresh through their eyes. As someone said, it’s never too late to have a happy childhood.

Now on to the crocs!

Photo Booth – 50s Themed Wedding Booth

We had the pleasure of doing a 50s themed photo booth at a wedding in December. There was well over 200 guest who came over to the booth and it was a thrill watching everyone enjoying themselves. The wedding was also 50s themed and it was awesome to see how the guest had put some effort in dressing to the theme.

Here are a few happy moments from the booth.

Product Photography – Doinyo Lessos Creameries

Doinyo Lessos Creameries has one on the best cheddar cheese in Kenya, hands down. They needed some images for their new website that included their factory and a few of their products.

I did the product shoot inside the walk-in fridge where the cheese is stored and added a few props from home to create sort of a picnic theme. I wasn’t really prepared for how cold it was in there so had to run through the setups quick to avoid freezing.

I think the photos came out great though. And am looking forward to their website.

Being a foodie, I highly recommend trying out their Highland Cheddar and let me know what you think of it.

Holiday Travels – Mombasa Part 1

The December holidays mean family time for us, and this time we had my Sister and Brother-in-law visiting from the States with my darling niece. They came in early in November and we decided to do a trip to Mombasa before the peak season during the Christmas holiday.

We got to stay at The Tamarind Village for a couple of days and I have to say that place has incredible views of the creek and Nyali bridge. I couldn’t stop myself from snapping away at an chance I got.

Here are selected shots of the view.
