viet nam alley | she had offered me directions to the bathroom and was curious about my camera, pointing to it and speaking through hand motions. she said she used to take pictures of plants with a camera left by a journalist; what I gathered from our little translation and hand motions. It was more like dropped but she didn't develop it or use it after that roll stopped "working" and I offered for her to take a portrait of me, she suggested one of her instead. She reminded me of my own grandma - the fragility of her walk didn't show weakness to me and her long gaze that was filled with so much history was grounded. The way she composed herself before I said "ok" with my thumbs up. My image turned out blurry but I remember her and I love how she stands and looks at me here. I don't like to take photos of people especially in other countries without speaking with them and asking permission. I guess this is where my documentary work becomes interactive and less so. I can't figure out why, part history part liberation part consent. Who knows. I am thinking of my grandmother and wishing as a teen I had taken portraits of her. #film#documentaryphotography
Весна 💚 с каждым днём все чаще начинает нам напоминать, что совсем скоро лето.
Погода сегодня замечательная: легкий ветерок, солнце греет своими лучиками, а не жарит нас всех, как "курочек гриль"🌚 У бабулек на базаре уже куплены первые пионы 🌸😍 К этим цветам у меня особая любовь!
А какие ваши самые любимые цветы. Такие, чтобы сердце замирало от их красоты?!💞
My amazing best friend has reopened her Etsy shop, Paper Love, and I couldn't be more excited! She is one of the most talented women I know and drew, yes DREW, this for my family! I already have two other pieces from her and can't wait to frame this to add to my collection. Go check out her work @jasminologie for custom portraits, it is such a timeless gift.

Look at this two! 🐈❤🐈
My mornings are so different now. Actually my whole day at home is not the same, and I'm loving it. My apt has become a playground for two #cats . Organization doesn't last long, silence is not the rule anymore. She learns from him and vice versa. She is tiny, he is a whole lot of cat, they look hilarious playing together. He teaches her how to hide when it is storming outside. They offer each other company and guidance. He is not that jealous anymore but she's still crazy.
We've had so much fun in the studio with our April Facebook competition winner @carolinepearl_ and her lovely mum Angela and sister Harriet! It was an ultimate girls day out with professional hair and make up by the amazing @jadevictoriagmakeup in our studio in Bray. When Caroline entered our competition, she said that should would love to get a beautiful photo of all three of them together. I absolutely love this portrait of them all smiling away ...a wonderful reminder of a wonderful day, that is now proudly displayed and framed in Angela's home. What an honour and privilege to capture these fabulous ladies together. #lenkajonesportraits#existinphotos#ukphotographer#berkshirephotographer#windsorphotographer#ascot#familyportrait#girlsdayout
🌹Покажу вам портрет, который я нарисовала для пятерых сестёр :-) листайте, внутри портрет каждой! Очень люблю когда мои клиенты творчески подходят к портретам и вместе со мной стараются наполнить рисунок деталями. К этому заказу прилагалась длинная инструкция: причёски одежда, аксессуары... Обожаю эту работу. 🌹Such a beautiful girls! I love this portrait very much!
