First of all, sorry for there being no post for the last week or so. We have been a bit busy on a couple of projects and this is one of them. We were approached by St. Hannah’s School to do the pictures for their new website and I jumped at the opportunity for two reasons. One reason is cause I love kids and some of the most beautiful images you find are of children. And second reason is kids are some of the hardest subjects to work with. So this was good practise because St. Hannah’s consists of Nursery, Primary and Secondary (High) Schools. I have to admit the nursery kids kinda rocked. Here is a sneak peek from the project.
An Itega in Kikuyu tradition is a celebration and sort of an introduction of a new born to the extended family. This is usually held when the child is about 6 months or more. Well for Ethan his had been a long time coming due to his grandmother being out of the country and she really wanted to be there for it. We had the privilege of doing the pictures for the occasion and here are a few.
Hope you enjoy them 🙂
Taking pictures with film teaches you to be deliberate. To be anxious. To be patient. Once you compose and take the picture, you have to wait until the film roll is finished to see the end product. You cannot see what you have captured, you cannot delete it either.
This kind of delayed gratification makes film the best tool to appreciate photography, in my humble opinion. We have this old [and I do mean OLD] Chinon Camera. Here is a sampling of our delayed gratification:

Misono used to be on Lenana Road. Now, there is a commercial property coming up where it used to be. While driving one evening along Ngong Road, we noticed that Misono had opened at Greenhouse. We were excited!
First, what we ate:
If you had been to Misono while it was on Lenana Road, you know decor was minimal. However, they have seriously upped their game. We were beyond impressed.
