PORTRAITS

Hey everybody! hope everything is great with you guys...
These are a few portraits that I did recently. This is a little different from the kind of work that I usually do but I thought it would be nice to share it with you anyway. Hope you like it!
I know that I've been a little distant from the blogosphere lately and I'm sorry if I haven't been commenting your posts enough , but it's for a good cause - I'm on vacations! :) I'll be back on track very soon to cach up with you guys! hugs!

Olá amigos, espero que esteja tudo bem convosco.
Estes são alguns retratos que fiz recentemente. É um estilo um pouco diferente daquilo que normalmente define o meu trabalho, mas decidi partilhar convosco de qualquer forma. Espero que gostem!
Eu sei que tenho andado um pouco afastado da blogosfera e lamento se não tenho marcado presença nos vossos blogues com a assiduidade do costume, mas é por uma boa causa - estou de férias! :) Dentro em breve regressarei à carga para recuperar o tempo perdido! Abraços!
