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.
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.
My primary mission is to deliver a photo report also UNIQUE: natural, but unconventional, artistic and creative. My approach is that of a documentary. I do not intervene, or really little, and I prefer the capture of images on the spot. Awarded at the International Wedding Photography Contests organized by the WPJA ( Wedding Photojournalistic Association ), my main goal is to tell a story. With this in mind, I am particularly attentive to MOMENTS. I am deeply committed to sincere human relations, and to weave a friendly and trusting relationship with my clients is a sinequanon requirement for the creation of a living report, borrowed from my sensibility.
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.
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.
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.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 7 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 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...
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'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.

I have attended many workshops and have studied with professional photographers and at the IFF (Italian Institute of Photography in Milan) refining my skills. Photography is the essence of my life and taking pictures makes me happy.

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.
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 love stories. Great stories and everyday stories. I started photography when I was 12. A friend gave me a camera because she thought I was "able". Then I shot stories, real or written. I started my professional activity while I was finishing my studies in a great french Cinema School. I love moment, and I love when I capture one. I love instant and instinct. I don't like talk about myself, my photographs are more talkative. I'm french, working in Pau, Biarritz and worldwide. I'm 37, two daughters.
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.
I am Pieter, an enthusiastic creative person with a keen eye for special moments in daily life. As a photographer - I'd rather call it a storyteller - I look for memorable passages in life, I like to think about it and I take my time to tell my own story about it. For me, photography is the continuous search for new stories and then capturing them from an unexpected angle. I myself do not like the stiff pose and I try to be as absent as possible as a photographer in my environment. Only in this way can I incorporate the spontaneous experience into a surprising series of images.
Hello, I'm Tati Borges. Daughter, sister, wife, mother, photographer of couples in love and happy people, born in Rio de Janeiro in 1986. I specialized in family photography with a lifestyle concept in Brazil. Photography has always been my greatest passion. Since childhood, I have been fascinated by images and every single story behind them. And my inspiration for photography comes from music, subtleties of life, from romance ... every wedding and every family is always something very special for me. An important aspect for me of documentary photography is that it has to be timeless. This photo/photograph has great value today but will grow in value over time. Do you remember your favorite photos from 10, 20, 30 years ago or more? You can see that this photo has a lot more value today than the day it was taken. And in a few years, it will surely increase in value. So we have to get rid of fashion in photography, put Instagram filters aside and think about producing pictures that will be current even in 10, 20, 30 or more years. In front of us is what we want to see, very valuable and timeless photos. This is one of my big goals in documentary photography of a wedding. If you like my work and you identify yourself with it, contact me and let me share your story!
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.
I am Elodie, I am thirty-one years old; the happy mother of three little ones and the companion of a wonderful man. It's a bit of a caricature of happiness, but it's reality. In addition to doing my passion, my job, I have the perfectly imperfect life that I dreamed of having. A specialized educator by training, you may think that there are two worlds between these two professions. Yet the human being is at the center of everything. Love, life, love the people I meet, listen to every story. I am above all extremely sensitive to simple, fragile things, to others.
I have been a professional photographer since the summer of 2013. Many love, smiles, tears and fun moments passed through my eyes and heart. I have the most loyal parents and sister behind me. I'm married to a wonderful man, we have a dog and a cat at home, and a million dreams! I have several award-winning wedding photos, several exhibitions in my hometown of Lovech, one in Mayen, France. I dream of photography in Tuscany, the castles of Ireland and the Bulgarian mountains. I dream and know that the best shots are yet to come… because they will be of heart and soul!
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.
I tell people I have always been a photographer. In the beginning, I studied architecture, my obsession was to make perfect photographs. My problem was always the people who "dirty" the places, squares, and buildings that I photographed during my travels or exits. But then something changed. A bit like in Ciàula he discovers the Moon, Pirandello's short story in which the boy who works as a miner once is entranced by the beauty of the Moon despite having always had it in front of his eyes but never really looked at it, I fell in love with people. I studied reportage photography and learned to tell the beauty of reality and people even in their imperfection, which is an essential part of the uniqueness and soul of everything. Over the years I have specialized in wedding and family reportage. Basically, reportage photography consists of telling an event, a situation, a story. This approach applied by an important event such as a wedding or even a simple family moment is much more alive and personal, truer. Henri Cartier-Bresson, one of the fathers of reportage, once said that photography is placing the mind, eyes, and heart on the same line of sight. I've always tried to make this sentence my own because if you manage to converge in a single photo, in addition to what you see the energy of a moment, the intensity of an emotion, the perception of an atmosphere, well, a lot of stuff!
I’ve been a professional photographer since 2007, before then I was a TV producer, mostly working on travel documentaries. As a photographer I’ve always chased the most beautiful version of reality and strived to tell real stories in the most vivid way. I started off my photography career with a degree, a few exhibitions and a bit of commercial work, which I loved. I became a mum for the first time in 2010 by which time I was starting to establish myself as a wedding photographer, which is now a very big part of my life and I massively enjoy. I always new that in some shape or form I’d end up working with kids and once I was a mum I very quickly realised what a massive demand there was for very real yet strikingly beautiful images of family life.
Passionate about photos from a very young age, I have always been attracted by human adventure and the different feelings that a simple photo can convey. Over the years and meetings, I have developed my vision and my sensibilities to share with you your little happiness and great emotions.
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.
Photography has always been a passion in my life, started taking photos of almost everything I find worth to see when I was a teenager. Then I've got my post graduate degree on photography in 2008 and I've been shooting weddings and families for 9 years by now. I define myself as a wedding and family photojournalist, when it comes to capturing the day. To tell you about myself a little more; I was born in 1982 in Izmir/TR and I am happily married for 8 years. I am a dreamer, a traveller and my favourite colour is purple! To get to know more about me and my works, you can simply visit my website and drop me a line. Looking forward to meet you!
I touched photography while still a teenager, when I was 12 years old, it was 1987. When my friends were playing football, I was locking up in a dark room and printing photos under the red light. I came back to professional photography in more мature age, being already a happy father of a family. Then I discovered the values that had dreamed all of my entire adult life. And I began to show these values in my works. Mainly I shoot weddings, but shooting a baptism has a special meaning for me. The sacrament of baptism is of great interest for photography. There I find unique moments. Purity and spirituality are the main elements in my baptism shots. My style is only selected and precious moments. In my works you can also see the dynamics and I also like to leave a gap of vagueness, which makes the viewer to do a logical conclusion of the shot (the plot). My hand is recognizable among numerous Armenian photographers as I don't falsify the reality. All that I've achieved in photography, was done independently, all the knowledge was acquired through long searches of information and hard practice. I have a great working experience with wedding agencies, as well as in collaboration with models and stylists. For me the concept of tops in photography is that after many decades, looking at your shots you will once again be filled with the same warm feelings and memories that become priceless to you!
Photographer for almost 7 years, bubbly, and full of life, I love to put on my sneakers and go running with my French bulldog, Married for 10 years now, I have a wonderful husband who helps me a lot on a daily basis, and especially to fit out my new studio, Wonder-Mom of 2 boys 11 and 6 years old, Godmother of 2 overly cute princesses, and Auntie of a little pirate, children are part of my life and that without them I will feel very alone. Because life goes by too fast, Because you can hardly see any photos of you and your sweetheart, or sometimes some blurry selfies on your smartphone, Because kids are growing up so fast, and we never get enough photos of them. For me, it's essential to create a photographic heritage that you can watch over and over again, which you can pass on to your children, to your grandchildren. But not just a photo! A photo that freezes the moment, which transcribes the feelings which you feel for each other, which emphasizes the character of each one. A living and natural photo that will remind you of memories and above all that will match you. For this after your baby's 18 months, the Family photo sessions take place outdoors. The outside allows us to play together, to let your children free to develop and to show me all the facets of their personality. And that, so that your photos look like you. Whether it's sunny, foggy or windy, your love for your family is the same and that's what I want to freeze with my photos.
My name is Emily, I’m a Brazilian professional photographer and I live in the Netherlands! :) I was born in 1992 and I remember spending many days of my childhood seeing the family albums over and over as if it could keep a moment with magic and visit it several times. I love people and their characteristics so I can say that there is not even a day where I'm not creating or thinking about creating something. Routines have always been very tedious for me, so I decided to leave my experience as a pharmacist in the past and to become a professional photographer. I traded the heat of Rio de Janeiro for Amsterdam in 2017, and here I live with my fiancé and two beloved cats. Platform boots, skinny jeans, and messy hair describe me perfectly. And food. Oh, I can't think about living without chocolate. For 4 years I used the name EGAC Photos [Emily's Got a Camera] but in 2019 I decided that my company needed a new identity, then Framed by Emily was born. My work is extremely rewarding and is my biggest fuel because I am always meeting people with different nationalities, stories, and cultures.
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!
I am Céline Dounet, lifestyle portrait photographer in Prayssac in the South-West, I travel everywhere in France and beyond our borders. My world is devoted to the family, to motherhood, to children, to laughter! I like capturing the moment, the happiness of everyday life, like the great moments of life, always with a photo-report approach. 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.
By taking photos of my sons, the value of small everyday moments really became clear to me. I photograph them during play and mischief, during fun moments and crying, during fraternization and quarrels. These photos say so much about them and their personality that I am sure that they will cherish these memories the most later. I also want to realize these memories with you. I live and work in Landegem near Ghent, but as a photographer I go everywhere. Feel free to contact me if you live in Antwerp, Ostend, Brussels, Kortrijk or Hasselt. A trip abroad is also perfectly possible.
What I love most of all is Netflix and chill under my cozy blanket with hot chocolate. A tall child of 29 years old and passionate about the simple moments in life, it was natural for me to go towards the so-called lifestyle photo. This is where you can photograph families and couples really and without artifice. Wedding and family photographer since 2018, I only photograph happy people! I like to tell stories, your stories. Smile and have fun!

Born in 1978, in the middle of the summer in Athens.. And fast forward to 2002: I studied Mechanical Engineering at Technological institution of Athens learning how things work and more importantly how to break them. I then worked in this field for 8 years, but this career path left me searching for a creative outlet. I’ve always liked photography but never thought in my wildest dreams I could make a career out of it. In 2010 i came home with a new mindset and determination, to do something more fulfilling and challenging. Something that would engage me creatively. I succeeded in joining the Department of Photography and Audio-visual Arts, making my hobby my life pursuit. I undergraduate with Ηonors in documentary photography. In 2012, I continued to study Documentary Photography and i attended the “Photojournalism and Documentary Photography” program at the International Center of Photography (ICP) in New York I completed my studies with a residence in the international research programme of residence in the National School of Photography (Ecole Nationale et superieure de la photographie) the only art school in France dedicated exclusively to photography. I had produced pictures on humanitarian crisis, focusing in social issues around the globe. Some of the countries and projects include India, Turkey, Syria, Jordan, France, Italy, Esthonia, Sweden, Finland, and United States of America among others. Since 2012, my photo projects began to appear in websites, newspapers and magazines worldwide (Le monde, Guardian, Le journal de la photographie, I-D magazine, Vice, National Geographic and others. In 2013 i have been Awarded as one of the best 10 Young Photographers at Athens Photofestival and the following year i was in the 1st Place, at Sony World photography Awards. But it's the story-telling part of working as a documentary photographer that has the most influence on how I now work as a documentary family and wedding photographer and this is how my editorial photography has shaped my photography. I spent a long time learning about light, about people and about story-telling. It’s not easy, telling a story with pictures.
I’m a documentary family photographer. I live in Lyon but I’m available in all France, Switzerland, the Antilles and even beyond. In fact, I go wherever your desires will take us! What I like is sharing a moment with you, time for a walk or a weekend to stop time on this important moment in your life. So that my photos, those I will give you, resemble you and reflect what you are, your personality, your soul, your heart. Get in touch and then enjoy, be yourself I take care of everything!
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.”
My name is Sergei and I am a wedding and lifestyle family photographer in Saint-Petersburg, Russia. I am fluent in English and I work as a photographer more than 5 years. Open for any creative and commercial projects. Member of Wedding Photojournalist Association www.wpja.com January — February 2020: wedding and family photo in the Philippines
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 studied Photography and Art at college and at University. When returning home I became a photography assistant and second shooter for weddings and now its time to make my own stamp on the world! I am very proud to share my life with my long term partner Sophie and our animals that include guinea pigs, a hamster, and a leopard gecko. I love my little family.
I am passionate about lifestyle family photography! You notice that when you see me working professionally. What do you get to see? A professional photographer who works professionally and efficiently, who knows how to behave correctly in every situation and who discreetly moves to take sneaky and almost invisible beautiful pictures for you. Someone who does not shy away from crawling or lying on the ground with one goal: the ideal photo.
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.
I am Sophie! I spend most of my days in Ghent, where I live and work. I have been photographing and filming for as long as I can remember, although I have evolved from making after-school "village documentaries" at the age of 8 to a full-time existence as a photo and videographer. Tirelessly optimistic, I am always looking for authenticity and connection; as a fiery believer in the beauty that people are capable of and a lover of the humor of everyday life, I try to capture sincere moments. I also like to make corporate films and photos based on a strong story.
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 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.
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.
As far back as I can remember, I have always had a camera grafted to my eye since childhood. I immortalized my family, my friends, what surrounded me. After high school, I joined a school of graphic design for 3 years, to realize that photography fascinates me even more! I then go to a photo school in Paris, and work directly for Tennis Magazine France for almost 10 years. I then, following the birth of my daughter, transformed sports reporting into family reporting (I realized that it was sport to photograph children!). Giving people happiness by creating their memories has become obvious. I like coming to your place or wherever you want, telling your story, your family in pictures. Capture your emotional moments, your laughter, your knowing looks in natural light. In fact I transcribe life through my lens. I love life, photography is my life. Smile for life.
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.
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...

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.
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 :)
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.
Better known as Tia Karol, a gaucho resident in Ribeirão Preto, I'm in love with the world of mothering and photography since 2011. I can't talk about my profession, not to mention my family, who really shows who I am and what makes me admire to register the daily life. The smile of everyday life, the jokes, the learning phases, all teach me so much and change my gaze as a photographer day after day. My goal is to be able to photograph each family in their individuality, their personality, that the essence is recorded in a timeless way. I want the smiles to be repeated year after year, the moments to be relived as I look at an image I could have the happiness of making, as I smile when I see the happiness of my family. And with all this love, for families and photographs, I want every person who passes through my lens to become part of this circle of affection as well. May friendships be cultivated, stories shared, and everything done with love and simplicity. With love!
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.
