Photo Session on a Cold Autumn Day

Autumn in Amsterdam is really beautiful, and, if you’re lucky, there will be some gorgeous sunny days to enjoy the autumn colours. But there will be some freezing or rainy days as well. On the day of the photo shoot I arranged with Tea, the weather gods sent us a taste of the winter temperatures. Happy there was no rain, we went on with our plans, but the cold made our work pretty hard. My hands were frozen on the camera and Tea’s cheeks were so frozen that she could barely smile. “Freezing on the canals of Amsterdam” would have been a more appropriate title for this article! But, in the end, we took the photos we wanted, we had a lovely photoshoots, and we got coffee and apple tart to reward ourselves for the effort. We started at her beloved Rijksmuseum and then we went to the surrounding areas for as long as we could endure the cold. I custom edited the pictures with a filter to match the style that Tea had in mind for her website. This was our third photo session. In the past years, Tea trusted me with producing photos for her blog and I feel honoured by that! You can read her opinion about our photo sessions in this article: My Private Photo Shoot in Amsterdam.

It was great to see her and catch up a bit. Tea is a cultural travel blogger, writing on Culture Tourist, a website that you should definitely check out! She used to live in the Netherlands, but she moved back to Croatia a year ago. Tea continues to write about the Netherlands (among other travel destinations). I admire her for her knowledge about art history, and for her dedication to her blog and creative activities. I think I love the most the art blogmas series she’s doing every year. So, so cool! She also creates colouring postcards that you can find on her website and order some for you and your friends. I’m sure you’ll enjoy browsing Tea’s work.

And here are a few of the photos we took:
