Porkkalanniemi, one of my favorite places on earth.
Why is that?
Well. I used to go there with my family quite often when I was a child, thanks to my dad who at that time was working for a telephony company which had cabins at the area. So needless to say that I have fond memories of that place. I do keep trying to find one oak tree which branch I sat as a kid, so that I could take a similar photo now that I’m much older. I have a feeling that tree does not exist anymore. Still, every time I visit the place I think that maybe this time I’ll find it.
Porkkalanniemi never fails to bring you that feeling of bliss and relaxation. Watching far to the horizon and clearing your mind of everything else. All I feel there is just happiness and I just let my mind wander and dream big things. Just let those ordinary days of life be set aside. Walk on that bare rock that ice age have once carved and left its marks on. Look at those funny wonky trees and maybe if you are lucky, one can stumble upon creatures of the forest who wander close by.
Here we are, at the edge of the sea, where Laura and Timo got in front of our lenses for the third time. Portraits taken on another day after a wedding is a hassle free slot where there is time for just that – portraits. I can’t get enough of these sessions where you don’t have to look at the clock, but instead I can fulfill whatever ideas come in mind. If the couple is truly playing along, then there’s little that can go wrong in an artistic way.
These guys were so happy to be married and I really think it shows.
