Our Own Little Advent | A Photo Series by Giulia Bellini

This past summer, just over a month before Owen was born, we were approached by the very talented, Copenhagen-based photographer Giulia Bellini about a pregnancy photo shoot. Admittedly, we were a little reluctant at first (you know how some pregnancy photo shoots can end up, yikes!) but we are absolutely thrilled at how Giulia's photos turned out - they are wild and authentic and absolutely capture that singular moment in our lives as we awaited the arrival of our little man. All photos were shot in Bernstorffsparken and the surrounding area. 

All photos by Giulia Bellini and are used here with her kind permission.

Into The Partnach Gorge, Germany

Down here its our time, its our time down here:

Our recent trek through Germany's celebrated Partnach Gorge was, by far, the most "Goonies-esque" experience we've had during our European travels.

What started as a ramble through a sunny Bavarian village became a walk through low-ceilinged caves, under waterfalls, and along narrow precipices (precipi?) - a journey that ultimately opens out into a wide-mouthed, snow-dotted Alpine valley. And, if that wasn't enough, another short walk up out of the gorge led us back into the sun and into the most picturesque mountain village imaginable (the last few photos below). 

This is the kind of place that truly makes you appreciate the diversity of nature, the power of water, and the importance of publicly-protected national parks.
