Snapshots of our Summer – Surf and ice-creams

It feels like Summer was ages ago while I am writing this post; it is raining cats and dogs in London.
Our Summer was in Portugal, as usual, with our family and most of the time we spent it in our little beach cottage near the Atlantic. This place is a renowned famous surf spot, and I thought this year would be an excellent opportunity for the girls to surf.
I was a little bit afraid, to be honest, but they just loved it, and now I am already thinking about the next time!

These are some snapshots of our holiday in this extraordinary place. Until next time.

Check some snapshots from the last years here and here.

    100 days of Summer – A Story in Motion – London Family Photographer

    I am so happy to finally share with you a short video of our summer holidays in Portugal. Check-out the pictures I took from our time in Portugal in my other post too.

     

    “After almost a month enduring the not that lovely London weather I could’t help but feel nostalgic when I finally edited my summer holidays pictures.  I spent summer with my daughters in Portugal and I took my camera to document our carefree sunny days.

    August was a magical month – we spent our time in my home country mostly either at my parents’ or at our beach house. The girls had lots of fun and days were super relaxed – running around barefoot after the dogs, riding bikes, diving in the pool, and trying new things everyday.

    It somewhat felt like my childhood summer days in the 90s. I remember the excitement of having three whole months to enjoy after school had ended. Some days we just wondered around the garden with the dog and built imaginary friends out of old stuff my dad collected in the garage. I feel very luck my kids can start to create the same good childhood memories.”

    Holiday Family Photography – This is our life #1 – London Family Photographer

    Holiday Travel Family Photography This is our life 1 A personal project

     

    After almost a month enduring the not that lovely London weather I could’t help but feel nostalgic when I finally edited my summer holidays pictures.  I spent summer with my daughters in Portugal and I took my camera to document our carefree sunny days.

    August was a magical month – we spent our time in my home country mostly either at my parents’ or at our beach house. The girls had lots of fun and days were super relaxed – running around barefoot after the dogs, riding bikes, diving in the pool, and trying new things everyday.

    It somewhat felt like my childhood summer days in the 90s. I remember the excitement of having three whole months to enjoy after school had ended. Some days we just wondered around the garden with the dog and built imaginary friends out of old stuff my dad collected in the garage. I feel very luck my kids can start to create the same good childhood memories.

     

    – Pool days

     

    My dad set up a small pool in the backyard to help us cope with very high temperatures – it can get as hot as 43 degrees. The girls love water and the excitement is clear in their faces. Isabel was confident in the water, she has now been able to swim underwater for some time. Melanie loves to splash around and I was able to capture her together with her cousin having loads of fun.

     

     

     

    – Lisbon and the Aquarium

     

    We visited Lisbon a few times but I didn’t really want to carry my DSLR camera around. The only exception was when we visited the Oceanarium – a lovely place to capture pictures of your kids with all the gorgeous blue behind them. August can be very crowded but I still managed to take some clear shots. I particularly love their faces overwhelmed by the grandiosity of the huge aquarium walls.

     

     

     

    – Baleal Beach

     

    This place is very important to me and I will be writing more about it in a separate post. This is a fairly famous surf spot and the ocean therefore can be a little wild and cold, but it’s an amazing place for families – the white sand beach is long and wide and it has tons of little rocks and dunes to explore. The smell of the ocean is extraordinary and hard to find nowadays. My girls had the time of their lives.

     

     

     

    – Family and friends

     

    This is also a month to spend valuable time with family and friends. We are lucky both grandparents live in the same town so it’s easy to be together. Living in London without family can sometimes be hard so we try to compensate during the holidays.
