Pyrenees-Orientales and Perpignan lifestyle photographer Olivier Bolte of Occitanie France

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 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 which brings 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!

Occitanie Family and Lifestyle Photographer Catherine Hudson-Paturet

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.

Ain Lifestyle Photography by Laurine Walger, of Auvergne-Rhone-Alpes France

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.

Kathleen Viron - Dunn is a lifestyle photographer from Lyon, France

I am Kathleen, a family photographer. Eight years ago a person came in my life who was going to upset my life. 3,5kgs who would become in a split second the center of my life: my daughter. Because (or rather thanks to) it, we bought an SLR. What's more important than the chocolate spread around the mouth or her siestas in dad's arms? Soon my camera is an extension of my arm. And there, I discovered more than a way to keep some frozen memories of my little treasure. I found the ideal tool to tell us, our family, our moments, our everyday life. So I put everything down: Paris, my job in com, my comfortable everyday life. And I have been photographing families for four years now. I discovered an exciting job where the image is a great way to bring out the beauty, the connections, the love and that little something that every family has, and who is invisible to the naked eye. Above all, I found a way to touch people. My daily routine today is laughter at all the sessions, shoots of family love that I accompany from year to year, children that I see growing up. It's mostly the feeling that I'm doing something important. And that at my scale, I make people happier. Because through my images, they remember that they are united, loved and that they are a beautiful family.

Portrait of Laura Duvouldy, Auvergne Rhone Alpes family and lifestyle photographer

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.

Rhone-Alpes Family Lifestyle Photographer Coralie Garavel

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.

I have a great job as a lifestyle photographer! I have been able to photograph so many people and families and several of my photos have been awarded international awards. Super cool! I photograph families in both a lifestyle and a documentary way. That is, in addition to capturing moments in an honest and artistic way, I also love capturing real moments. I am always inspired by you, the environment and the moment. I work passionately and am sharp when I take pictures of you. I take my work very seriously because I am someone who strives to take the best pictures. Although you will soon notice during photography, that result is often achieved with a lot of fun and pleasure.

Portrait of Sergio Cueto, Madrid Lifestyle Family Photographer

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 specialize in wedding and family photography. I have a documentary approach, and I do my best to capture authentic, joyful, and intimate moments.

Family Lifestyle Portraits by Estelle Chhor of Occitanie, France

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.

Lyon LIfestyle Photography by Coralie Castillo of Auvergne-Rhone-Alpes, France

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.

Oslo family and lifestyle portrait photographer Nicola Paulukat of Norway

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.”

Portrait of Haute-Savoie lifestyle photographer Vanessa Amiot Coutouly of Auvergne-Rhone-Alpes France

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.

Portrait of Cote-d'Or lifestyle photographer Severine Berger of Bourgogne-Franche-Comte, France

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!

Picture of London lifestyle photographer Irma Arrowsmith of England, United Kingdom

Hi there, I'm Irma, a mum and family documentary photographer born in the Netherlands and living in London. I've always had a passion for photography, and have taken photos all over the world on my travels, before I finally moved to London, 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.

Julien Marchione, France lifestyle photographer.

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.

Portrait of Auvergne-Rhone-Alpes lifestyle photographer Delphine Perez of France

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.

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 ;-)

France and Nouvelle-Aquitaine Lifestyle Photographer, Chrystel Echavidre

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.

portrait of Biarritz lifestyle and family photographer Charline Eberhardt of Pyrenees-Atlantiques Nouvelle-Aquitaine France

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.

Belgium Lifestyle Photographer, Emilie Marchandise, from Wallonie.

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.

Lifestyle Photographer, Alexa Kidd-May of London.

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?

Gelderland lifestyle and family portraits by Karin Keesmaat of the Netherlands

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.

Pistoia Lifestyle Photographer Alice Franchi, of Tuscany

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.

In addition, I love the sea, music, sour sweets and lifestyle photography of course. For me, photography is a hobby that got out of hand. After enthusiastic reactions to my travel photos, friends sometimes asked me to photograph their children or even their marriage. And successfully, because many tens of thousands of photos later, I was able to make my profession out of photography. My style? Spontaneous, romantic, no-nonsense lifestyle photography. But above all: unusual. Furthermore, I am quite a calm and down-to-earth guy. Absolutely no big noise or someone who pushes you too much. You can safely pose for a photo, but just as well I just walk the entire day in your shadow and I give a clue here and there. If you are only in the spotlight, I will ensure that I have captured the best moments.

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.

Florent Cattelain, Lifestyle Photographer of Occitanie and Haute-Garonne.

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.

London Lifestyle Photographer, Marion Pelletant - UK

I'm a family lifestyle 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 new home in the UK, walking through Kent's countryside or London's landmarks with my family.

brittany family portrait and lifestyle photography by magali butny of france

In Mag passion photography, there is Mag. A mom of almost 40 who has always loved taking pictures. A passionate and self-taught photographer, I like to share the intense moments in the life of others. Former Nurse: I practiced this profession for many years in specialized services such as neonatology, Emergencies or Réa. More than a job, it was a real vocation for me. Over time, my profession has evolved and I no longer saw myself practicing this profession under these conditions. I needed to refocus on human beings and at the dawn of my 40th birthday, I decided to take charge of my life so as not to regret anything. Indeed there is one thing that this profession will have taught me is to be aware of the fragility of life. Mom: And it was when I became a mother that I told myself that it was absolutely necessary to freeze these fleeting moments of happiness that life offers us. All these smiles were given, these faces and these eyes of astonished children, these amorous glances exchanged between two beings who sometimes do not tell each other enough that they love each other. This is why I chose to take pictures.

Italian Lifestyle Photographer Michela Bocciarelli of Milan

I was born in 1984 in Italy and in particular in a very beautiful area of ​​Lombardy between Lake Maggiore, Lake Como and the splendid mountains that frame it. In high school, I decided to attend advertising graphics and at this juncture, I discovered "photography" when at the age of 18 I got my diploma I decided that I would look for a job only in this field that had fascinated me so much in school desks. I was lucky, my first job in a photographic studio introduced me to those who eventually became my partners in WeddingStudio, an adventure that we started in 2012, born of a common passion for wedding photography. Since then I am happy, it is really true what they say "if you like your job you will never work a day in your life"; telling emotions for me is a joy and seeing the satisfaction in the eyes of my clients at the delivery of work pure happiness.

Massimiliano Beccati Lifestyle Photographer of Milan, Italy

I was born in 1970 in a lovely place close to Lake Como and Lake Maggiore, beautiful lakes of Northern Italy. Since I was a little boy I have been fascinated by “photography” and it is now twenty years that I have been working in this field. In the last fifteen years, I have been working as a photographer, especially for weddings. In 2012, in Milan, I set up “WeddingStudio” together with other colleagues. I take photos of wedding days giving a “ photojournalistic” cut to my pictures. That is why I define myself as a “modern storyteller”. Telling stories and touching people through my pictures: that is what I love to do. That is my job and my passion. And when there is passion in what you do, you see the difference! I like thinking and telling about your wedding in a different way: the newlyweds have to live and enjoy every moment of that day and share every moment with their loved ones. That is why I like to become “invisible” and catch details, shades, glances, moods and going on gestures. My job is a wonderful job and every time that one of my pictures can stir up emotions or recollections in people looking at it I think that considering it as “wonderful” is still not enough...

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.

Varese, Italy Lifestyle Photographer Francesca Zambrini

I love people and through the lens, I try to grasp the essence and uniqueness of each subject. I consider myself very privileged to be able to capture moments in people’s lives and freeze them to last in time. After attending a year's photographic course in London I decided to stay for another 7 years in England, working and experimenting with my camera. I now live in Italy in a small city called Varese where I was born near the beautiful Italian lake district. Since 2008 I have been part of a team of photographers and video makers who help me developing all the time. Even now I am searching and learning!

Naples Lifestyle Photographer, Luigi Reccia

Photographing for me means capturing a moment between two moments, and giving it to eternity, stopping time. The first thing I clearly remember is when at the age of 6 I started to draw copying from a Mickey Mouse comic book. From then my entire life has been linked to visual art. I've always been a stubborn person, this has led my life through good and bad decisions until in 2008 I decided to become a photographer. My first passion anyway has always been music, my mother and father are two rock 'n' roll souls who gave me good ears and the chance to express myself with the things I love the most. When I started shooting pictures, I started from music. I've been following local bands, gigs, and festivals for years, I've worked (I still am) in recording studios as photographer/videomaker. There never been a single day without listening at least one song in my life. Little by little I entered the wedding business, which is my main activity since 2012.

Nicole Langen Netherlands Lifestyle Photographer

I grew up with a mom as a photographer and have always had camera’s around me. My passion to make the clicks myself began at the age of 11. However, I studied economics and in my spare time liked to take the camera with me. After finishing 2 years of the Fotovakschool and shooting partttime besides working in management functions, I started my own business as a professional photographer and completely love it. I specialize in lifestyle photography and my main core business are preganncy-/newborn and babyshoots. I see moments, and I feel them. Those little in between moments - a smile or wink of the eye, a cuddle or touch - those unposed fractions of time, is what I want to capture for you.

Zug lifestyle and family portraits by Andreas Feusi of Switzerland

Born in 1982 and raised in the Zurich area, I trained in office admin, later in IT support and was of course a passionate amateur photographer. My hobby has been my full-time job for some time. About 10 years ago I started my own company and opened my own studio in Cham. Since then I have moved into a larger studio in Baar. My passion for beautiful pictures, my creativity and love of working with people all contribute to my success in this profession. At the beginning of a contract, it is important for me to have personal contact with the client. So it is most vital to me to have discussed the expectations and wishes of my client before starting the shoot. As an avid Canon-photographer, naturally good equipment is a crucial part of my work. Is Canon or Nikon superior? In both of these top brands, their high-end products have very little to choose between them. Who is behind the camera is more important than discussing the technical details. The technology should just make it easier to capture an even better shot.

Indra Simons, Lifestyle Photographer for NL

The next word I learned after 'mommy' and 'daddy', was probably 'aperture'. My father is a photographer you see. And I spend quite a few hours in the darkroom watching the pictures he took showing up. But it was not until I was planning a trip to New York that I took an interest in photography myself. I borrowed my father's Pentax and asked him what exactly I should do with it, the day before leaving. Right. Not the best of my images, you can imagine ;-) So I took some photography classes and really got the hang of it. I developed an interest in people photography and documentary photography because I really like searching for the best possible images in a given situation, without interfering.

Rio de Janeiro Lifestyle Photography by Ana Paula Campbell - Brasil

I'm Ana Campbell. If you had to leave all your belongings behind and could only choose something to take with you, what would you take? I would definitely take my photos. Am I the only one to think so? My father is an amateur artist, he paints pictures and sculpts wood in his spare time. On the other hand, there was a very strong culture in the family that any profession related to the arts was not a good option for the future. I lived this conflict for a long time. I graduated in computer science and worked for years with it. And one day I bought my first camera DSLR. I started to learning how to use the camera in 2011 and I did not stop anymore. Then, in 2015 I completely migrated to a new career as photographer. The language of my work is guided by photojournalism and most of the time I try photograph the moments as they actually happen. I’m dedicated to documenting families and solo portraits. My desire is to create images with purity, freedom, experiences and I hope that it inspire others to love life as I love.

Lívia Delgado is a Lifestyle Photographer from Rio de Janeiro, Brasil.

Born in Teresópolis, a mountain town in the State of Rio de Janeiro, I grew up surrounded by an incredible family and inspiring wolves From an early age I got used to admiring the beautiful and the arts as ways of seeing reality. Graduated in Law, I exercise until today the profession with passion and dedication, qualities that I transpose to all the domains of my personal and professional life. The photograph arose from the need to record my wandering around the world and the people who make my universe more beautiful and happy. Then, I began to study photography technique with a keen eye, in order to eternalize everything that poetically my eyes and lenses can capture. However, no teacher or book is able to teach us to open the soul of the photographed, which is only possible if he generously wants to share his inner world and his experiences.

Portrait of Kingston Lifestyle Photographer Viara Mileva

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.
