Your Family Storytelling

MY APPROACH

There are few things in life that bring more joy than beautiful family portraits.

 

As much as you’ll love the portraits now, in the years ahead they will become even more precious. I take photos, not just for today, but for your children and their tomorrows.

 

Time moves fast. Children grow up, and parents grow older and wiser ;)

While it’s impossible to stop time, it is entirely possible to capture the magic of your family now and forever.

Family portraits are a beautiful way to share the spirit of your family and all the unique personalities that make it.

As a family and lifestyle photographer, I aim to tell your family story and turn moments into memories that will last a lifetime and beyond.

How it works

A full family photography shoots usually last 2-3 hours. This can depend on age of your kid(s), on locations we choose and your family's pace in general.

Most families choose to begin the shoot in their home, and then move to a fun location to enjoy summer vibes.

I love to take advantage of beautiful natural light and nature’s perfect backdrops.

But if you want just to  devote all photoshoot time for enjoying  home atmospherea, sure its also more than fine!

It’s my job to put you at ease, while capturing your natural smiles, laughter and all the moments in between.

I usually  interract with your kids in playfull mode, thats what, i believe, brings out their unique personalities. All i ask that your family  relate with each other as you normally would! Those make some of the best family portraits!

The family photo session day is just a normal day, when you are playing guitars with dad, kite flying, ride bycicles, play boardgames, swimming in the lake or building a tree house in the forest, on a summer picnic with the grandparents or during a snowball fight with friends...
 
Everyday life: This is the ideal prerequisite for a family photo session. No prepared artificially staged studio life but the life that just happens when you are together with your children. 

LET THEM BE LITTLE! 

The key to these, is really and truly RELAX and have fun with your family.  I know I'm awkwardly standing in front of you, guys, asking you to pretend I'm not there, but these sessions are ABOUT YOU, not me!  

"Let them be little", let them play with the sand and get their clothes wet, happy kids make happy portraits!

 

When you play, laugh and rage together with them and just be there, all together. There is no need to constantly pull out the smartphone to stop the flow life and thus possibly destroy the most beautiful moments. Although nowadays it is not only a classic model of a family, but much more. Grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, the best friends and even pets are a part of it.

something more you want to know

Small preparations

Get your kids excited for the session and let them know how much fun it will be, but no need to over prepare them or add too much pressure for "best behavior"

Kids pick up on your stress, so stay cool, even when they throw a tantrum

 

Our goal is to capture their true expressions, and keeping it light and fun is essential to that.

Our best behaved children (and adults for that matter) are usually those that are well fed before our session. Feel free to bring treats to reward good behavior during our session!

Location 

 

Finding the perfect location is an important part of planning for the photo shoot of your dreams. I have my favorite places, and usually make a recommendation during our consultation based on your personality and style, but I always welcome your location ideas. I’d love to know if there is a place that is sentimental to your family so we can discuss our options and plan the best location to suit your family.

CLOTHING

 

This photo shoot is meant to capture your family, including individuality and style. Helpful tips to keep in mind when choosing outfits:

Think coordinating, not matching. Incorporate colors and patterns that fit well together.

Don’t be afraid of color! Choose a few neutral colors, and then add a few bright accents to your outfits. Accessories such as scarves, necklaces, and clothing layers are great for this. Or you wanna wear all white in sunny summer day? Great option too!

No logos please. To keep the look timeless, try to avoid trendy clothing with words or logos.

Always feel free to text or email me your clothing options laid out before our session!
