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

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!

Lifestyle image of Auvergne-Rhone-Alpes family portrait photographer Coralie Garavel of France

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.

Grand Est - Alsace lifestyle photography by Aurore Mottet, of France

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...

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.

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.

Outdoor portrait of Lyon lifestyle photographer 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 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.

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.

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.

Indre-et-Loire lifestyle photographer Magali Chareton of Centre-Val de Loire, France

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 ;-)

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!

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.

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.

Portrait of Alice Franchi, a Pistoia Lifestyle Photographer from 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.

Doubs lifestyle photographer Emilie Knockaert of Bourgogne-Franche-Comte France

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.

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.

Portrait of Northern Ireland family lifestyle photographer Melanie Hudson of the United Kingdom

Hi my name is Melanie and I am Mel Hudson Photography and I’m a Lifestyle Maternity, Newborn & Outdoor Family Photographer based in Carrickfergus, Co Antrim. I’m also Mummy to 4 little humans. My passion for outdoor photography has been around for as long as I can remember. Long before camera phones were a constant companion my SLR accompanied me everywhere. I would spend hours developing my images in Dark Rooms watching the paper come alive with moments I had captured. I've been told its best if I pop a few details about me down. So here it goes real quick. I'm an introvert with a camera, love warmth, cherish my family & friends, travelled the world and ended up back home because there really is no place like home and if I have a spare 20 minutes I'm either getting lost in the book for this months book club or watching Grace & Frankie on Netflix…. and breathe.

Ireland and Dublin lifestyle and family photography by Camila Lee

I am Camila and I photograph families spending time and having fun together. ​ My job is to make sure your kids have photos with you in them to look back on. I am a mum too, and just like you, I take lots of photos of my daughter with my phone, but I am not in a lot of them... just like you... but I can help you with that! ​ My story with photography began in 2007 when I was in fashion college. I fell in love with photography, and have been married to a camera ever since. ​ I believe photographs have the power to take us back in time. I love looking back at my family photos, they always put a smile on my face. I'd love to put a smile on your face too. ​ I'm the kind of person who always sees a half-full glass and the little things in life make me happy, like seeing other people laugh or eating biscuits for breakfast.

Prague Lifestyle Photographer, Matouš Bárta - CZ

My dear father, just like almost everyone at that time, used to take and develop photographs in our bathroom. For me this ritual was an inseparable part of my childhood. Sometimes I would join my father in the red dusk and watch pictures appear under the magnifier, which used to belong to my grandfather. My dad used a Zenit E – it was light sealed with carpet tape and it had to be rewind with surgical precision in order to avoid breaking the film. I used to use the very same Zenit when I started taking pictures myself at the age of fifteen with the plan to study Photography in Brno and much earlier than that I have begun observing the world around me. Now I’m twice as old, married to a great, loving wife and have two children and two cats. And I make a living as a professional family photographer. To me, that was something absolutely inconceivable fifteen years ago. When shooting, my mind is completely clear. I don’t know what will happen and what the location will look like, all I know that I'm in there, I’m a part of it and I shall catch it in the photos. The photos, despite being still and mute, (and perhaps because of that) have the ability to capture the atmosphere and story in a completely unique way.

Portrait of Manos Skoularikos, Athens Lifestyle Family Photographer from Greece

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.

London Lifestyle Photography by Ana Ruivo

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.

Outdoor portrait of Netherlands lifestyle photographer Hai Anh Nguyen

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.

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.

West Sussex Lifestyle Family Photographer Nicola Hudson

A trained photojournalist, and having photographed over 500 weddings, events, families, and couples, I have the experience, skillset, and knowledge to take true documentary photos that tell the real story and personality of you and your loved ones. I have a naturally creative eye, therefore being artistic, seeing things from another perspective, chasing the light and looking for pockets of light, creating dynamic compositions, and getting down to your child’s eye level is how I capture life through their eyes. It’s an enjoyable and rewarding job, and I am a true perfectionist in what I do, but more than anything I'm passionate. You won’t be disappointed. I have a very relaxed style of photography and like to let things unfold naturally, encouraging children to run around and explore so that I can see them naturally, keeping them engaged and capturing their individual expressions and unscripted moments, this is the point in lifestyle photography. I’m always happy to give gentle direction with any type of portrait and even with family lifestyle sessions, I will generally take a handful of group photos, parent and child portraits, and individual photos of the child/ children, aiming for a mix of a small number somewhat posed as well as the main bigger bulk of the images being un-posed and true. They don’t have to be elaborate affairs, some of my favourite photos were normal, simple, everyday moments - captured beautifully and naturally, using natural light, which I’m known for.

East Flanders family and lifestyle portraits by VOV photographer Kimberley Janssens of Belgium

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.

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...

Oise Lifestyle Photographer Cedric Derbaise

Specialized in marriage but also in all family events whether it is a romantic photo shoot, a maternity or pregnancy photo shoot, a family photo shoot, a birth photoshoot. I love family, friends and having a good meal together, walking and contemplating, listening to music in the car with the volume up, the beautiful colors of the sky, hearing the laughter of my sons, the mountains, red wine, unexpected encounters, tinkering and moving forward, spring mornings but also playing in the snow, cycling in the summer evenings… in short, live fully!

Rhone family and lifestyle portrait photography by Sandra Lacroix of Auvergne-Rhone-Alpes France

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.

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.

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.

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.

Curitiba lifestyle photography and family portraits by Rachel Tomasini of Parana Brazil

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.

Brazil and Rio de Janeiro are home to family photographer Bruno Montt

Hello! I'm Bruno and I love helping families to collect their memories. I'm from Rio de Janeiro / Brazil but I'm a destination photographer. My passion for photography began as photographed, seeing me in the old family albums and trying to relive all those moments. That deepened when I graduated in Visual Arts 10 years ago. The power of a keepsake is something that makes my eyes shine and providing this is very rewarding. I'm in the photographic industry for some years, which allowed me to photograph families, births, weddings, teach workshops and win some awards. Want to know more? Get in touch :)

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.
