1st place - Lifestyle Photography Awards 2020 Proud daddy of 2 young turbulent boys, lover of a marathoning girl, I try to find some time to make photographs. Family photography has always been an important part of my services. I love capturing movement joy and life, so who is better than kids to express those? I like showing emotions and I stand pretty close to my subjects to get them. And still, I manage to get natural pictures. I guess I'm kind of nice as I don't get them uncomfortable :) I like the strong light of the afternoon and the soft lights of the dawn. I like strong composition, graphic shapes and lines..and more organic feelings. I shoot mainly families, maternity, and weddings but I also work with companies that bring more diversity and experience to my work. Please feel free to come say hello and bring your family with you so I can help you to make great memories of your kids!
I'm a lifestyle photographer since 2015 in France, around Lyon. In love with the arts and above all with manual work, I immediately knew that I wanted to be an artist. Every year I do two or three different workshops with some very nice photographers. Learning to go beyond myself and finding my style is important to me, I need that. I realize every day that passes the happiness that I have to do this exceptional job. A chance to work with you, to let my curiosity wander through your stories. It is often said that curiosity is a bad thing, it is for me the opportunity to know you better to create images that look like you. I do this job out of passion and because I do not see myself doing anything else.
Born in England, I grew up in Africa and Auvergne. With my husband and my three children, I then lived in the United States, in England, in Finland, then in Paris. I now find myself between sea and mountains, near Font-Romeu in the Pyrenees Orientales and it is a pleasure to observe the beauty of Cerdanya every day. I have always been involved in photography and I have always loved to immerse myself in family albums which retrace the lives of my parents and grandparents in the last century, the daily life of our life in Africa. I received my first camera at the age of 14.
I love live, authentic moments, long walks by the water, tears of joy but above all I really like sushi. I forgot to tell you, I live in a small village in Cruzilles-les-mepillat, close to Macon, Lyon and Bourg-en-bresse. The photo makes it possible to capture exceptional moments of our lives and to retrace our history for future generations.
LOVE OF THE PHOTO - Photographer since August 2013, specialized in Pregnancy, Birth, and family. Formed by Le Workshop Famille and Daniel Bourdenet, but also in newborn posing by Aline Deguy, Michaëlle Porodo, Stéphanie Lemmens and Erin Elizabeth, big names in the world of photography. Passionate about my job, our meetings, your stories. The photo is never far away in my mind. All the beauty of the world around me continues to amaze me every day. IMMORTALIZE EVERY MOMENT - Your smiles, your tender and sincere looks, your bursts of laughter, you just as you are. This is what I want to transcribe through my images, it is so important. From your relationship until the birth of your child, then the evolution of your family, I want to be able to be there in these precious moments, and like a little guardian angel, immortalize these memories. Because these images are you, your heritage. It’s the exact representation of your family. It is in 10 years, around a Christmas meal, a family celebration or simply an evening at home, curled up on your sofa, that you will be shining with love, joy, of nostalgia, leafing through your family album reminding you what a good time it was. And that’s something essential to me.
In 2011, I grabbed my first SLR, on this new path I meet incredible, sometimes unexpected people who believe in me, trust me and unknowingly impose a new challenge on me: capturing the essence of the bond that unites them to make it a lasting memory. I become a professional photographer with a mission: to make you aware of the happiness of the present moment and to sublimate it. Every day, I learn, I listen, I watch and I start again. My studio around Besançon opens its doors in 2016, I travel around Franche-Comté and try to find always different places for original photos.
Family photography is above all - beautiful. Photographer for 20 years, I worked 12 years for the regional daily press. Since 2014 I mainly dedicate myself to the photography of happy moments. I also tasted still photography for the cinema, on feature films, TV films, short films. I am a member of the Hans Lucas studio for my work in photojournalism. My long reports, portraits, orders are published regularly in the national press. I am based in Limoges and travel throughout France, Dordogne, Charente, Corrèze Creuse and around the world.
Mom of 4 children who have beautifully turned my life into a happy mess, I fell in love with social photography, starting to document my own family's daily life 10 years ago. My approach is that of a documentary. I do not intervene, or really little, and I prefer the capture of images on the spot. Lifestyle photography is a wonderful tool that perfectly responds to my constant search for authenticity and meaning. I like to capture those looks, those bursts of laughter, the baths that bubble up and especially those that splash, that little hand tight around yours, those moments of calm, all huddled together after a long autumn walk in the forest, I also love the heckling and pillow fights, the pride your eldest has in setting the breakfast table alone, and the laugh of your youngest who just pulled the tail of the cat. There are so many more great stories to tell during a lifestyle family session and I love being able to to deliver natural, unconventional, artistic and creative pictures.
In a few words, I have been 30 years old for almost 3 years and I am from the Lyon region. The region close to Lyon that I have never left and that I love very much for its diversity. I am a very young mother and I recently moved to a small village in yellow stones of Beaujolais with my lover, my 11-month-old baby boy, and my cocker spaniel, Dina, but I love to move and discover new corners of our beautiful city of Lyon or the surrounding countryside. Fan of wide-open spaces and travels, a month rarely goes by without me going to take the air somewhere abroad for a city trip or in France, even for a single night. All these escapades are often accompanied by culinary discoveries which completely delight the gourmet and epicurean that I am. My taste for good food perhaps comes from my Lyon origins, who knows! Eternal romantic, I have faith in love with a capital A. I am hypersensitive and completely addicted to emotions whatever they are. I am very attached to the values of the family, that of blood but also the one that I chose for myself. It is for these reasons that I chose, through my profession, passion as a wedding and family photographer to photograph the love and happiness of every moment of life. Self-taught wedding and family photographer, no I was not born with a camera in my hands! In auto-enterprise since January 2014, I would say that it was wonderful encounters that pushed me to attempt the adventure of entrepreneurship in photography. Since then I have trained and I still train on a daily basis with great photographers and each year, I allow myself time to continue to learn again and again. Meeting, being inspired, and always discovering is a leitmotif.
Family and wedding photographer since January 2017. Mum of 3, I have habits to photography them all the time to keep memories, It was evidence to become a photographer for all families. I love emotions, joy, natural and spontaneity in life and in photography. I want to offer all these memories of happiness to my families.
For me, my life took a real turn at the age of 19 because it was at that age that I had my first experience abroad (in Boston in the USA). The click! This first strong and enriching experience allowed me to understand a lot of things and brought me a certain open-mindedness. From this experience was born in particular my passion for travel and photography. Time has passed and many memories have been created through many trips around the world, moments with family and with Jessica, my everyday half. Photography took a special place in my daily life because it was the means to relive all these moments. All my experiences have allowed me to get there today and make me the person I am and a fulfilled photographer. Being able to feel free and happy every morning when I wake up. The photo has this particular capacity to capture the moment around people gathered, their joy, and their emotions. I am someone with a pretty emotional character, but I am also a kind, passionate and cheerful person. If I take pictures today, it is to be able to express myself and help you bring out all your emotions in pictures. I do not like to be alone, I am not a lonely person, I much prefer to share moments with my relatives and to live the present moment accompanied. I think my photos really transcribe this way of being, what I feel. Through photography, I want to help you experience strong moments, emotions, create memories and be able to share them later. I wish you will carry these memories throughout your life and from time to time, as I do myself, bring out those photos with joy, emotion, and love.
Hi! I am Jeremie, a storytelling wedding and family photographer based in France. Former aerospace engineer, Europe, and Canada/US-educated, work & photography have taken me to 15+ countries on 5 continents over the years, but the emotion is a universal language. I love documenting weddings, love stories and family moments with a natural and lifestyle approach, capturing emotion and in-between moments that make the best memories.
It may be cliché, but it really is… I have been walking around with a camera for as long as I know. First with a disposable device, then a digital device. Since 2016 I have really started to immerse myself in photography and I followed the first training and bought an SLR camera, but the fear of the unknown and especially of not being good enough stopped me until the end of 2020 from really making photography my profession. to make. The leap was taken, I did more training, did my first shoots and it made me a different person! It is wonderful to be able to capture all those small and large moments on the image. Throughout shooting and gaining experience, I learned what I'm good at and what I'm not so good at. My passion is to give every person the opportunity to really shine. Whether you have a plus or not, you just belong just like everyone else.
Burgundian by origin, and after having lived a few years abroad (England; Ireland and even Thailand, for a guaranteed change of scenery), I returned to my homeland: Dijon, Burgundy, its wines, its roofs Burgundians... Aged 38, I worked fifteen years in marketing and innovation, and especially internationally. A few years ago, life shook me and opened my eyes to my need to move on. I wanted to give a truer meaning to my work; to create emotion, to leave a mark, to be more creative, and also to get closer to children. The photography seemed obvious to me! Since then, I no longer work, I live this passion, and I measure this chance that I have given myself!
My father is a photographer and camerament. He taught me to hold a camera when I was 6 years old. And since then the cameras have never left me, even when I became a documentary director with international awards. I actually went back to photography and spent all of my time on it when I settled in the Netherlands. My style of photography is light, airy and cinema, focusing on capturing natural moments. Each photo is an artwork, capturing memorable moments in your life. It is my endless inspiration for creativity.
I grew up in Ardèche, in the heart of the Monts d'Ardèche natural park. These landscapes fascinate and calm me and I am keen to return there regularly to recharge my batteries. After a detour of ten years in Drôme for my studies and my first years of work, I now live with my small family in the South Ardèche in Saint Montan, very close to Montélimar on the edge of the Drôme and of the Gard. I am lucky to be a fulfilled woman and a fulfilled mother! Rather than a long written text, I suggest you discover me in a few words and expressions that characterize me. I wouldn't lie to you, I didn't always want to be a photographer. Like many children, I stuck my parents' camera to photograph anything and everything. It was later, at the end of my engineering studies that I really discovered photography by buying my first SLR! At that moment I understood what having a passion meant and it hasn't left me since! I started by photographing landscapes, taking portraits of my friends (thank you for your patience friends!), In 2020, I became a mother and motherhood was a revelation for me, so today I am keen to work with families and future mothers to create magical memories of these unique moments that make childhood. Today I find my balance between my scientific work and more creative photography!
In Tilburg, I completed my HBO photography education, after which I became the proud owner of Studio Fleur Janssen in 2000. Now I regularly follow courses to continue to develop myself as a photographer. Besides the love for photography, I have a passion for theater and music. Als regularly performs as a singer or actress. From calm ballads to party music and smart claps. Nice and crazy, and it fits well in combination with my photography. I live in Lent and am married to Rogier. Together we have three beautiful kids. Our star Valentijn, Thijme and Pim. I love to sing and dance with my sons. And of course, I take a lot of pictures of them. With two wonderfully busy people at home, I am far from having enough of children. As you can see from the photos below, I can transform myself in many capacities and make many children's faces smile. Don't panic, I won't appear at the photoshoot. On a project basis, I am regularly allowed to teach photography, art, and music in primary schools.
Passionate about photography since my adolescence, I spent hours walking the streets of Paris with my reflex. But since I became a mom, what I love the most is capturing memories, moments of joy, the love of a family, Life, Real. Photography has always had an important place in my life. As a child, I watched my dad develop his photos himself. I have always had a great passion for photo albums, those of my grandparents, my parents. See and review again and again these photos that I know by heart. Discover those people in my family that I have not known, but who are part of me, of my history. Listen to my grandma tell me her story through her photos. For me, photography is a precious heritage, of inestimable value that my parents transmit to me and that I will transmit to my children. They are part of our family heritage.
I am Frederico Santos, a lifestyle portrait and happy people photographer in Fontenay sous Bois near Paris. Married to a brilliant wife and happy father of two great children, a boy + a girl, I have dedicated myself to photographing weddings and families for a few years now. If you are looking for a photographer who provides you with photos of wise, well-groomed children with perfect poses, I am not the photographer for you. Children must remain children with their energy and their moods even during a photo session. I will be there to share with you the first steps, the giggles in a family without pose, naturally. Children grow up so fast! The family begins at two with pregnancy and lots of children and happiness! I will be happy to share your joys to transcribe these truly unique moments.
I live in Angers from France. Originally from Le Havre, I discovered photography at 25 in Quebec and am a graduate of the Dawson Institute of Montreal PQ Canada. Among my curriculum, exhibitions, and editions on Europe, Asia, University, primary school, city, etc ... Awarded by the Fondation de France in 2010 and the Academy of Arts and Fine Letters of Angers in 2013 for my work "on the soul". For 5 years I have lent my name to wedding photography: I put my artistic and technical knowledge of the image at the service of the memory of this precious and fleeting moment.
I love to tell beautiful days, family stories, and capture the first moments of life and new happiness. I became a photographer out of passion, after studying arts and ethnology. I have a passion for people, human relations and above all, the beautiful moments of life. I get the privilege of photographing weddings, families and newborns at home. I am a photographer in Lyon for almost 10 years. I am married and mother of two little darlings, 9 and 5 years old. They are the center of my life and my source of inspiration. Becoming a mother really made me aware of the rapid passage of time, that the moments of fullness can be fleeting and especially how important it is for me to keep track of it all. That's why I also love working with families, seizing their moments of joy and make them live unique experiences, I attach a great importance to immortalize happy moments without imposed poses, in a spontaneous and relaxed style. I am always moved and proud to deliver to my clients what will constitute for them a part of their family patrimony. Because there is nothing more precious than keeping those moments alive.
I live in Zwolle together with my husband, our two children (5 & 3) and cat. I got a passion for photography a long time ago in Kazakhstan (my native country) and this passion was sparked "recently" by the birth of my children as I want to capture as many moments as possible during their growth. Time flies! Before you know it, they are adults and go their own ways. Photography is the best way to remember happy moments in life. I will help you to fill your family photo album with wonderful memories. I would love to see you at my photo session!

Photographing your family is what I would love to do, any time, any moment, just write me a note. Why do people like to be photographed by me? I am easy going, flexible and full of ideas.

Martine van der Voort: ...Because every picture tells a story.... Let's meet soon!
Hello, I'm Abbi - I am a lifestyle photographer based in Shropshire and I specialise in family, natural newborn and maternity photography. Documenting memories has always been important to me - I was the one with the ‘Sony Cybershot’ in her handbag every time I went on a night out with my friends. After my daughter was born, I realised that I wanted to do more than just take snapshots. I wanted to learn how to preserve our memories in a skilled & artistic way - so my journey into becoming a professional photographer began. Since then I have been accepted by Click Pro Photographers as a Click Pro Elite Member, I've had my work published twice in 'This Detailed Life Magazine', I've been published twice on the Click Community blog and I've been in the Top 10 of the Click Pro Elite Daily of the Week. My work is heavily focussed on connection. I look for natural, authentic and emotive moments and my aim is to create stunning wall-worthy artwork of my clients' memories.
Hi there! I'm Jessica! I am a professional photographer since 2015. I live in Lyon, but I travel everywhere, in the Auvergne Rhône Alpes region, in France and abroad. I specialize in wedding and family photography. I have a documentary approach, and I do my best to capture authentic, joyful, and intimate moments. I love to see you laugh, smile, hug, and have fun while photographing you.
Hello, I’m Alexa - a specialist storytelling family photographer based in London. I love to photograph real life as it unfolds and my working style is calm, relaxed and most importantly fun! It’s not about awkward posing and smiling for the camera – it’s more about capturing the natural moments of family life. As my two kids grow up they teach me that life’s precious moments are hidden around every corner. Looking back at the photos I’ve taken throughout their childhood is one of my greatest joys. My aim is to capture that joy and emotion for you and to create a beautiful set of timeless images for your whole family to enjoy for ever. It sometimes feels like there are actually four kids in our family: my husband, our two children and possibly the cutest dog in the world. When we’re not battling it out over a board game or cooking huge family roast dinners I get the chance to lose myself in the latest Netflix drama series, before working my way through endless “to do” lists which never, ever get finished! And did I mention I quite like chocolate too?
I was born in Madrid in the summer of 1975 and no matter how cliché it may sound, I have always been passionate about the Image, whether it is still or in motion. I studied Audiovisual Communication at the University, thinking of becoming a film director… but I ended up working as a videographer and photojournalist for the news programs of televisions such as La Sexta, Telecinco, Telemadrid, and Localia. He really enjoyed being in the eye of the hurricane, capturing the images for the news that the rest of the people would later see in their homes. Working as a photojournalist requires anticipation, being able to quickly make technical decisions, developing a nose for guessing where the “turning point” will occur, and knowing how to be in the right place at the right time - perfect training to be a wedding photographer! I am the father of two little ones who have stopped being babies without my realizing it, and I'm afraid they will turn into teenagers just as quickly.
I discovered photography as a little girl. It has always been a part of our life to be taken in pictures and create memories that last forever. When I was 18, my parents offered my 1st camera of my own. I tried to use it the best I could but didn't really take the time to go further. In 2009, I started to work at Sony, in marketing and discovered the world of photographers that reminded me how much I loved it. I started to ask a lot of questions and got interested in technology & techniques. In 2013, I have decided to quit everything and leave for around the World trip. 2 years on my own, with my backpack and a camera, to encounter as many people as possible and take pictures to see if I really like it as a job. And guess what? When I came back, I have decided to take the leap and I founded my company in 2016. I immediately started to shoot families with an approach to document real life, the everyday moments, and completely fell in love with it. Now you know me a little bit more: I'm a travel addict, who loves taking photos and telling beautiful stories of life through my pictures. I want to meet you, to discover you, and to capture everything you feel with my camera. I’m completely addicted to smiles, happiness, close-knit families, crazy couples, and people who want to enjoy life. I am based in Biarritz but I travel everywhere for my work, in France but also Worldwide. Take me for my next adventure with you, with the great sound of your favorite music in the ears.
I'm a family photographer based in London. I've always been passionate about photography but it's only in the last few years that I started specialising in family and baby photography. I believe that children are a godsend for a family photographer because they give so much and are so open with their emotions that it reflects on all the family, unlocking all the love and playfulness. I'm originally from France but I love my home in the UK, walking through Kent's countryside or London's landmarks with my family.
I'm born in France in 1984 and I've begun to take photos some years after... to now. I photographed many different things but always for one goal: creating souvenirs. I have a creative sensibility, I love senses and tale stories. Your family is precious and I want to immortalise your more beautiful moments with natural spontaneity. I'm a self-taught woman who loves details, nature and humans (and kids !). I'm based in north of Limoges (Haute-Vienne - Limousin) and close to La Souterraine (Creuse). Limousin is a rich land for realize shooting in wild places. I accept photography in France and Europe.
Lifestyle and Wedding Photography is my passion. At my young age, I delighted with the beauty of our world and always wanted to keep amazing memories for myself and others for a long time. Then I was managed to do this with the help of my «magic» camera by creating original and unique images that reflect the beauty of humanity and nature, the experiences we all feel and share. Now I am still falling in love with Lifestyle Photography that gives me a unique opportunity to visit beautiful places, meet interesting people and help them to capture those joys and happiness. I am lucky to do what I do!
Hi there, I'm Irma, a mum and family documentary photographer born in the Netherlands and living in Brighton & Hove, East Sussex. I've always had a passion for photography, and have taken photos all over the world on my travels, before I finally moved to the U.K., got married, had a baby girl and started my own business. I love the joy, fun, humour and happy chaos of family life - something I try to reflect in my work. For me, it's all about capturing the tiny moments that say something unique about you and your child and family. Whether it's messy meal times, splashy bath times or a day in the park, it's the seemingly insignificant details, captured on camera unposed and unfiltered, that show the individuality of each and every family.
Hello, this is Anaïs, I am a lover of people and light, a tea drinker, my passport is ready for the next destination, I like to browse the flea markets // the old houses, make my homemade products, and favor local crafts. I am in turn, the sister, the girl, the little girl, the lifestyle photographer, the leader & the project follower, the friend ... I am a big dreamer, an optimist and ambitious. I try to capture every little bit of life, to be authentic, to be curious and caring ... It is for all that that I like to accompany you, to capture the details and the emotions of your family.
I live in the beautiful Norfolk Broads with my wife and two children. I have been photographing weddings and families since 2010. One of the best things in life is a good story and that's what my approach to photography is all about. I get a real buzz capturing those special moments, moments you might not remember or, perhaps, did not get to see. Even moments which, at the time, might have seemed insignificant will take on greater significance as the years roll by. I get my best images when you're just being yourselves - natural light and natural emotions!
Photography was taught to me at the age of 20 with a self-taught Portraitist from my area, it was a revelation I had finally found a wonderful way to make People Happy and show them how beautiful they are. I started my business 10 years ago now. Specialized in "Natural & Fun" Portrait ... I'm in love with Studio & Lifestyle. my favorite phrase about the Photo, which has also allowed me to create my logo is "I click when my Heart dictates to my Finger" She sums up to herself alone how instinct and moment are mixed in my opinion in my work...
I create soulful images and films full of emotion, love, and real moments that are so timeless and classic that looking back at them transports people right back to that moment in time and brings on a wave of nostalgia so real that they feel it in their bones. The clients I work with seek me out for my approach to documenting everyday life and ability to create beautiful images for them without any pressure to perform or be anything but themselves. They tend to feel a strong connection to their home, to their family, and to the idea of preserving memories and stories that can be handed down to their children and their children's children. I was born in sunny Portugal, former Architect and designer, now London based family photographer and filmmaker, available for domestic or international travel. I moved to the London in 2010, and I live here in this beautiful and vibrant city with my husband and my two little girls.
My personal photographic heritage is quite poor and I often regret it, all those moments that I let fall through time ... In the continuity of my work for the couples in the wedding universe, I like to capture the moments of life, the real life. This motivates my professional goals, follow you on a chosen moment in order to propose images that will allow you to constitute a precious family patrimony. Your family is beautiful, see you soon.
Venice captured my attention many years ago after I started living there at the age of 15 whilst attending an Italian Navy School, after which, I studied economics and worked abroad for several years in IT companies. I returned to Milan where I started my photography business and eventually came back to my favourite city in Italy: Venice. Portraits are a way for me to open a window into one facet of the client's personality. In the preparation part, I like the person talking about her or his interests and about who are the expected viewers and what do we want to communicate to them or to let them think. In Venice, I often work with artists like musicians. And people interested in events like the bienalle or the cinema film festival.
Since my adolescence, photography has always been a passion. A photo lab in the age of film and my very first digital 20 years ago ... in 2017, I started my business after a few months of training with American photographers. I am fortunate to be able to continue learning alongside French photographers recognized around the world. Learning and questioning, again and again, is what keeps me going. I like this magic idea of being able to stop time to keep forever memories of your family moments. For special occasions, weddings, large family celebrations, births. I hope that this website, with many images of my work, will convince you to come and live the experience of a photoshoot, far from the traditional images of frozen family portraits. Thanks to you, we will create memories of your emotions together for authentic and natural images.
My photographic journey starts a bit differently than usual, by not “owning a camera since I was young” but by a hobby, I used to have since I was little. The curiosity of observation. I always loved to observe people, their surroundings, and fill my eyes with pictures and colors. And this simply because a thousand words, emotions, smells as well as music and melodies can fit into a photograph. The biggest part of my cinematic style was formed by my love for cinema. Last but not least music played a big part in me becoming a photographer. Believe it or not, photographs have music within them. Looking at a photograph that evokes emotion is the same as listening to a song that evokes an emotion and these can be combined into one/become one: a photograph that brings to mind a melody or a song. In conclusion, I found a way to transform all the songs that created pictures in my mind by capturing little but significant moments of life. I used to compose music, but when I stopped I had to find a way to bring out all these images in mind, and that’s how my journey into photography begins.
I am Magali, the photographer hidden behind the lens of Nos Jours Heureux! Based in the Loire Valley (Tours, Amboise, Blois), I come to your place to make your precious memories. Just a year ago, I was in a classroom in Seine-Saint-Denis to do a job that, little by little, was losing its meaning, and then one day, I got tired of it! I left the Paris region and education behind me to go live in the countryside and devote myself fully to photography! Well, you guessed it the reality is a little bit more complex than that, but in general, that's it ;-)
I live in the most beautiful place in the world, the Azores, and traveling is one of my greatest passions. I’m married to the most amazing man, and fellow artist (a musician), and we have a fur baby - Tucker, and a spunky little goofball - Ava. This little business was inspired by little miss Ava herself - a firecracker, an angel, and a true momma’s girl. Her story is important to me, enough to want to capture as much as possible, to remember forever. AND SO IS YOURS. As a storytelling filmmaker, my goal is not just that you remember your wedding day, or that you remember little moments with your family, but that you get to RELIVE them. You get to look back on them and pass them on to your kids, and their kids. That the film and photos we create is something you’ll cherish and want to watch over and over, forever.
I am Stéphanie, your photographer ... Whether in my cozy “home studio”, in your family cocoon, or in the pretty corners of our beautiful region (for “lifestyle” photos), I will make you live a unique photographic experience, warm moments full of complicity, smiles and tenderness. I am the mother filled with my two greatest sources of inspiration of 4 and 9 years which motivate me every day, and the experience that I acquired during my first life (I was a nurse for 12 years) you guarantees my seriousness and my application, as well as a great knowledge of the physiology of future mothers and of the little treasures that you entrust to me. The many training courses I have taken with renowned photographers have also taught me the art of mastering light, directing my subjects, manipulating newborns, but also subtly retouching photos to magnify you. My partners and suppliers, most of them local or regional, allow me to offer you original and high-quality media to enhance your photos. I can only thank the many families who have already trusted me (you will find their testimonials on the dedicated page), the most distant of which came from elsewhere as far as Australia ...
I love life, my children, my husband, my life. I still have 30 years in my head even though I know it was a long time ago that I no longer have them. I am proud to be a Quebecer and I do everything to share my origins with my children. Eternal optimist - Adept of positive thinking, pipelette in my spare time, spontaneous, bitter teddy. I like gardening (organic), I'm green, I make more and more my housewares and we have a goal zero waste for the family and I travel by bike or on foot.

I have been photographing since I went to middle school. In university, I studied abroad (Singapore), traveled a lot, and had my camera with me everywhere. People always asked me why I photographed weird things, that nobody else seemed to “see” – like details on a wall. I also got really into editing and dove deep into Photoshop. Instead of studying, I remember sitting in the study room, editing images. However, it never crossed my mind to make it a business. After finishing my master’s in Information Management, I started as a consultant in a high profile international company. To make a long story short, I worked there for a couple of years and was miserable. It still didn’t cross my mind to make my love for photography business though. About three years ago, I talked to another mom at my kids’ kindergarten. She told me she was a birth photographer. At that moment something fell into place. This is what I wanted to do! I had always been fascinated by births, and to combine that with photography would be the best job in the whole wide world. I could literally not sleep the following night, that is how obsessed I was with the thought. I was lucky enough to actually be able to photograph my very first birth just a couple of months later. It was absolutely mindblowing, humbling, and amazing. However, I had a 6-months old, 3-year-old, and 6-year-old myself at that time, so I felt it was not possible for me in our family situation to become a birth photographer at that time. But this experience had triggered something in me. Maybe I could build something from my love for photography! It still took another year, until I photographed my first clients in October 2017. By then I knew exactly what I wanted to create: Lifestyle family photographs that are light and airy, and filled with unconditional love, and smiles, and connection. I had been spending more than 15 years with my camera and Photoshop; I do a lot of things intuitively, like finding the best light, and composition – now my focus lay on finding the real moments and connections. I read a citation by David Allen Harvey that says: “I don’t shoot what it looks like, I shoot what it feels like”. I made that my motto and my guideline, and what I always want to come back to when I am in danger of losing focus of why I do what I do. Since then I have photographed many, many families outdoors, in their own home, and last year started shooting video. Family films are so far unheard of in Norway, and I hope to create a market for it. Future goals! I want my clients to feel proud of their family when they look at my images. I want to open their eyes to what matters most in this world and in their lives. Life with small children can be overwhelming, and I want them to realize that it is the small moments that matter most! When my clients tell me that they had tears in their eyes when they saw their images. That moment, every time! What makes me most proud is the fact that I still, up to this day, get new clients that I can link back to the very first family that I photographed. That word of mouth has such an impact, and that these families come to me to be photographed, and not to someone else who might be closer or cheaper. I try to make my family sessions as stress-free and fun as possible for my clients. I provide them with a detailed guide with information about clothing choices, how to prepare the kids, and what to expect. In addition, I offer a client wardrobe with lots of choices for mum and kids to take the stress out of finding the perfect outfit. I absolutely adore children and the best feedback is usually a day or two after the session when mom tells me that the kids are still talking about me and want to meet me again. It just melts my heart every single day. One of the biggest compliments I ever got was “When I saw these photos I knew immediately whose photos they were- didn’t even have to see your name.”
Hello! I'm Vanessa, a natural light photographer in France & Switzerland. I love telling stories, meeting people, playing with the light. For me, Lifestyle photography is about creating memories of your everyday life. Living in Thonon les Bains, in Haute Savoie, between the mountains and Lake Geneva is a daily wonder, and I could not have locked myself in a studio and missed all these beautiful colors that surround us. I chose my profession as a photographer to offer you a family heritage, one that is priceless. The legacy that awakens your senses and your emotions. Whether for your wedding or your lifestyle session, my goal is the same. I want you to take advantage of the moment and share a true moment. And this, in order to offer you authentic memories.
For as long as I can remember, I've always had something to tell: a story, an anecdote, my day ... And this, I believe, since I breathed my first words. The family photo, the stories? All this will come to me later, even if at the time, the old Canon AE-1 from my father was already glaring at me without understanding that what this old film SLR wanted. Twenty years later, I sit on the benches of the journalism school and prepare my master's degree as an audiovisual reporter. At the same time, I am starting out as a sports photographer for a local weekly. In the process, I land my first photo contracts for news and magazine press. And the machine is launched Before breaking the piggy bank, I borrow my father's digital SLR and decide to make my first photo outing with this Nikon D60 and a 55-200.
I like simplicity and natural. Life is full of emotions, and photography will make you live those emotions again and again. I offer you to tell YOUR story with authentic images. Passionate about photography, travels gave me open-mindedness, desire to discover people, cultures, landscapes, desire for adventures. So starting as a lifestyle photographer was also an adventure, a great adventure ! I am Mom of two children, full of energy. Time passes, children grow up and memories are precious. It is therefore natural that I became a family photographer for almost 3 years now, with the only purpose to make you live happy moments and to leave you with memories forever.
My passion for photography began long ago when I was gifted a camera for my 18th birthday. From this day I traveled around the world with my camera and the beautiful landscapes and wonderful light inspired me to take pictures. Then, the joy of becoming a mother reinforced my artistic eye. I discovered the happiness of seizing the present moments with my children growing up: their games and laughter, their imagination, their joy of discovery and the variety of emotions I could feel. My passion for capturing raw emotion and true moments grew more and more! And little by little it became obvious that I wanted to live my passion and to tell unique stories to last a lifetime. So, I decided to quit my position of professor in biomechanics to become a professional family photographer.
Kijk-Kunst is Karin Keesmaat's 'developed dream'. My passion is photography with a clear stamp. Anyone can take pictures. Grabbing attention and giving people a real insight into products and services is different photography. And I'm good at that. Every day I learn to look at situations differently. Sometimes the surprise really is in a small corner. My goal is to visualize your products or services from a different perspective. This can be done through additions, lighting, a completely different setting, but mainly through guts. Are you an entrepreneur and do you really want a different look? Then entrust me with your company presentation. I'll make you stand out from the crowd of all those others. I create images that match your message. An image that appeals to and attracts the target group.

Hello, it's me, Lucille! I am 32 but I keep a child's soul. That's probably why I love photographing children and families. I started photography during a family gathering, doing a kind of family documentary without knowing it. I fell in love with live and instant portrait and decided to go professional and spend more time doing what I love.
It is reality that inspires me, narrating, through photography, the truth as it is, without filters or mediation. I’m interested above all in capturing emotions in contexts and situations which involve love and family. Travelling both in Italy and abroad, I realize my family photography with a reportage style, that is narrating every moment with an image, every detail in a very natural way, without poses or arranged settings and without making my presence felt.
For the record, I was 5 years old in my father's photo studio. One could say that my vocation was all found. Very small the first time I developed photos B & W with him I exclaimed "Wow, it's magic, I want to do it as a job! " To see an image appear softly on white paper was incredible. However, I followed web and cinema studies that brought me a visual and graphic baggage and I finally returned to my first love and I'm a photographer since 2011. After having accompanied nearly 100 couples and through hard work, I am proud to see several of my wedding images rewarded by international professional bodies like the WPJA. In 2016, a little guy came to upset my certainties. I discover the joys of fatherhood and see with my partner how quickly children grow. I had a click, an intense desire to explore the world of childhood and the family. This is why I decided to apprehend family photos as I do for weddings, as a documentary, a photographic story that allows a family to tell, to tell themselves in order to share memories (authentic ) forever.

The love for reportage photography was born out of passion when I bought my first camera, a Nikon FM10 film in Guatemala, almost twenty years ago. I started photographing a few precious, intense and unrepeatable moments of my travels, from the most remote areas of Himalayan Asia to the most boundless areas of Tierra del Fuego, inextricably sealing my two strongest passions: travel and photographic emotional reportage. My reportage photography was therefore born as a loving language, with the need to give small pieces of a dream, enhance and transmit the emotions that bring people's hearts close together. In reportage photography, the moment and still emotions reign everywhere sovereign, as well as in everyday natural gesture captured by Lifestyle Photography. For more than fifteen years I have been taking care of the couples from elopements, to a wedding, maternity, baby born, all through the most beautiful moments on the most beautiful day of their lives, in Italy and abroad, gathering smiles and gestures that make one's own moment and life unique and precious. Photographs tell a fable and deserves to be caught through eyes and heart, this is the purpose of my art: to tell the beauty and emotions of your special moment and make it eternal. Over the years I have exhibited my works in various exhibitions, and I am reported as a photographer on VOGUE. And now something about my travels: I have explored the world, in lands dotted with faces, landscapes, and silences, where peace and beauty kidnap the heart and nourish emotions. Ladak, Mongolia, Nepal, Cambodia, Patagonia, New Guinea, Myanmar, Guatemala, Namibia, India, Ceylon are just some of the countries where I was given the photographic emotion and I, therefore, shared it from time to time as a gift. To those who have come to read these last lines I would like to give a story, a look: imagine you are at dusk, in the garden of one of the countless monasteries of the Ex Burma, or in the plain of the Golden Pagodas, or in any street in the countryside .. you find yourself with your nose up, without realizing it: each person, child or adult has a piece of thread in his hand, and with the skill of movement they float the small kite in the sky. Your gaze now shifts in their gaze. This is absolute sweetness. And this is the indelible memory of the country.

I prefer photographs taken on the spot, without forced installation, sophisticated accessories, or frozen smiles and natural light. I like my images to be alive, bright and sweet at the same time, to tell a story. Photography has always been a passion, the birth of my little boy was a click. It is by wanting to freeze all the unique moments of his daily life that my passion was strengthened and that I decided to make my job.
Hi! Today I am a photographer, mother, RTV, passionate about portraits, stories, and memories ... From a very young age, I found myself delighted in the photo sessions that I went with my mother. I remember always walking with a camera in my hand, leaving the crazy friends to hear so much let's take a picture?! But it was during my adolescence that it sparked a passion for photography. I remember the delight of sitting and listening to stories Grandma told us, always illustrated with the most varied stories, written with unknown names and super old dates behind each portrait. I am the mother of Adam. Together we like to travel and travel. We went to the Himalayas, through the African savannah, and we knew the land of Mickey, and once we went to the moon!!! All this without leaving our yard. We like to live in a world where everything is possible, a magical universe where closing our eyes and believing is easy to find. Family moments are precious and being able to follow the development of this love is extremely rewarding. Being able to be part of these special moments, made me understand that photography is more than a souvenir.
My name is Ricardo Henrique and I am a photographer by conviction. I really believe in the power that photography has. Through it, I know incredible stories, which fascinate me and move me every day, is one of the most important parts of the whole: to know the stories I record.
Brazil Lifestyle Photographer for SCSanto Amaro da Imperatriz in Santa Catarina, BR
Before becoming a family and lifestyle portrait photographer, I was a parenting scientist. I got a PhD, analyzing thousands of mothers playing with their babies and I learned to notice tiny changes in facial expressions, small movements, and family dynamics. These are important to my photography today. I now live on an acreage near Kingston, with my husband, three children, and a menagerie of animals. My days are spent with the crow of roosters out the window, while I drink ALL the coffee and spread the joy of loving your life, loving your real self, and being forgiving of yourself as a parent.
