My new Saturday series on snaps from the past week!

I should probably have named this post “My favourite photos from the past couple of weeks” as with travelling to Denmark and a lot of events it’s been busy.

I’ve invested in a new lens. The Canon 50 mm 1.8 also known as a portrait lens. I absolutely love working with it. My Sigma lens is fantastic and the zoom is amazing, but I wanted something that was light and easy to carry around so that it would help me create great photos on an every day basis. I’ve definitely found that, but you can judge for yourself further down.

If you have a DSLR camera and want to create those professional looking shots where the main object is in focus but the rest is blurred, a prism lens is the way forward. I would have loved the Sigma art 35 mm 1.4 (yes, I know to most it sounds like a strange code), but for now it’s out of my price range, so I thought I’d test the waters with the much more affordable Canon 50 mm 1.8.

The biggest change from the Sigma lens is the zoom, because basically there is none when you use a prism lens. You become the zoom, meaning you have to physically move closer or further away to capture the right image. When dealing with a speedy toddler this can, of course, be a bit of a challenge.

Copenhagen airport

Caspian was running around as we waiting for our delayed flight back to the UK at Copenhagen Airport the other day. I loved the light though and spent the time snapping away.

As I mentioned in the beginning we’ve had a busy couple of weeks. First with Caspian’s children’s party in the garden on the day he turned 18 months. Then followed by my step brother’s wedding in Denmark the following weekend. It was a beautiful and relaxed affair full of love and happiness. I’ve made them an online photo album as a little extra present to commemorate the event and here are some of the shots I included:

While in Denmark we also got a chance to hang out with my dad and step mum. It is wonderful to see the bond Caspian’s is forming with all his grandparents despite living in another country and not seeing them quite as often as we would like.

We visited one of the central parks in Copenhagen, Faelled Parken, close to where they live. Worth a visit if you are ever there in the summer time. I used to play in the park as a kid, but it has been completely transformed since my childhood and Caspian was captivated by all the activities.



Happy boy running

  1. Gorgeous pics Nadia! I love it when the camera is soooo good, you get such nice photos. I’ve always tried to create the background blur with my Canon on Creative Auto (CA) mode, maybe I need to invest in a new lens. I hope you had a fab trip back to Denmark. Thanks so much for linking up at #fortheloveofBLOG, and sorry for the late comment. Claire x

  2. Gorgeous photos! I have the canon 50mm 1.8 too, once I got that I haven’t used anything else as I just love the clarity. My youngest has those Albababy dungarees too 🙂 thanks for linking up to #SundayBest x

  3. Stunning photos as always, the photos of the wedding are gorgeous and what a wonderful wedding gift too. Caspian certainly looks like he was enjoying the park, I especially love his cute facial expression in the last photo, really love his striped outfit too! I’m currently using my Canon G7X for all my photos, I’d love to invest in a DSLR but have no idea what I’m looking for!! xx

  4. What absolutely stunning photographs! This is definitely an area that I want to focus on more over the rest of the year. I have always taken photos with my iphone, but have been lusting over the Olympus Pen which the Mr bought me this weekend. I am so excited to learn more about how to take great pictures so if you have any tips I’d love to hear them! 🙂 Emily #SundayBest
