It’s been a juicy month since we last checked in… and we’ve got a few fun stories to share with y’all.


By far, the most exciting thing we’ve done in the past month was a photoshoot done as a collab for H&M.  We started the day with the amazing makeup from Ania followed by the shots taken by the one and only Michaela. The material was featured in the article published by Noizz.pl. You can read it here!

My favorite part of the shoot was the amazing promo film shot by Piotr 


After good 15 years (!) I had a chance to go back to my primary school. Not to talk about my trip, but instead, give a photo lecture. It was great to talk to the kiddos yet again, and share my passion for picture making. I even got a diploma! Swipe through the pictures below!

We also gave a few more talks to the kids from my own hometown. I loved seeing some of my old teachers come to the talks and speak to me afterward. What an honor! I even brought Fryderyk and Edward (the bike) along! :)

My favourite part about being back home is THE FOREST. Everytime I go there, I feel like Nature just embraces me. Worries and anxiety get lifted, and I can reset and oxidize my brain. How come the grey, murky colors of early winter don’t bother me anymore? I think I have finally grown to appreciate where I’m from. Here are a few shots from the winter wonderland that I’ve obsessed about lately.

Yes, I have deleted my social media from my phone. I did not disactivate anything, I am not removing it from my life entirely, but I am GRINDING! I am putting some serious work into the book and I am probably 1/3 of the way done. The plan is to have  2/3rds complete by the end of the year and get the have the first draft by my birthday (February 4th). Then the process of polishing will begin. Woah, that’s quite a schedule! Wish me luck! I also welcome all the good energy! :)
