Studio portrait of Sao Paulo family photographer Marcos Paulo of Brazil

My name is Marcos, father of three: Nicolas, Nina and Isaac. It was through and with their support that I discovered my passion for photography. Many people say that when a child is born, a mother is born, but here a father and a photographer were born. And I was also reborn as a person, became much more observant, and fascinated by the family and the world of children. My proposal is when the people get the photos, see themselves as they really are, in their virtues and imperfections, making it all the more real and beautiful. I hope I can be part of your story!

Belo Horizonte family photography by Adriana Costa of Minas Gerais, Brasil

For me, the greatest value of photography is the stories they tell us. That's why I became a family documentary photographer. Documentary photography is an area of ​​photography that aims to tell true stories, the way they actually occur. When turned to families, it allows them to leave to them not only images but records that represent them truly filled with the sensations and emotions that surround them in their experiences. It offers to show what they really are, even with all their imperfections, but in the end, see how beautiful this is! My focus is the simple things of life, the ordinary moments, those that, although they seem banal, are the ones that fill us, build us and allow us to see how we love and how we really are loved! For being a mother and knowing that the best memories of a family take place in our daily life, I have been doing this work with great joy. I am happy to have a mission to offer people a document that will become invaluable in the future for the history of each family. I am in Belo Horizonte (MG, Brazil), but I can go to families from other places who wish to keep memories of their stories.

Sao Paulo family photography by Raquel O'Czerny of the Brazil FPJA

Brazilian, living in São Paulo, photographer for 7 years. I’m an imperfect mom of two wild and cute daughters and I have a patient and supportive husband. I can't say when I first discovered my love for photography, but definitely being raised by a father who used to take lots of pictures of my brother and me during our childhood has influenced me a lot to become a family photographer. My childhood pictures are a treasure to me. As a photographer, spending a lot of time with my girls made me really see all the little moments of every day. I specialize in documentary family photography because I love capturing the real, weird, silly, and tender moments of families. I want context and details and authenticity. I'm focused on capturing the beautiful ordinary and the real connection. I believe photographing life is a necessity. It is our legacy, our story, a recorded memory for our children and future generations. Photos bring us back to the essence, truth, and beautiful moments of our lives.

Campos dos Goytacazes family and birth photography by Valeria Tavares of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

I am an administrator by training, I worked in large companies until one day I decided to make hobby my profession. I have 2 children, Ana Clara and Mateus. Ana Clara (firstborn) was my biggest inspiration to get started in photography. Since she was born I recorded at least one image of her a day, I realized that each moment was magical and unique. And it was exciting to see that a part of my family's life story was being told through these images! I started photographing newborns (newborns) and babies and naturally expanded into the family photography segment until I got to birth photography. In this trajectory, I specialized in birth photography and studied audiovisual production to offer women not only the experience with photos, but also with sounds and moving images. Childbirths are always an incredible emotion for me, whether surgical or natural. Being present at this moment so unique in the life of a family, observing all that mixture of anxiety, fear, joy, love, and so many feelings that involve childbirth has always touched me deeply in my soul. I do all birth registration in maternity and home care, and also do external and home exams with my family.

Campo Grande family event photography by Roberto Simões of the Mato Grosso do Sul, Brazil FPJA

I was born in Rio de Janeiro and have lived in Campo Grande / MS since 2006, the year I started my college of Advertising. There I had my first contact with photography and I understood that photographing is much more than those little Cyber-Shot cameras that I used to take selfies and update my profile on Orkut ... Over the years, photography has become more for me. More about the people photographed, their stories, and feelings. More about their personalities and traits, about those little details that manage to show us our essence. Photography has become more natural, and nothing can show more of who we are than our spontaneity. I have lived exclusively with photography since 2012. For 7 years I was a partner in a company where I covered numerous events and rehearsals, inside and outside Campo Grande. In March 2019, I took a new step in my career and started over alone. This redefined my journey through photography and has made me happier and more fulfilled with the profession with every job done! I chose to photograph children, families and children's parties because I believe that these memories make a difference in the life of each family photographed, further strengthening their bonds of love and affection through the clicks that become unique and special. I don't see myself doing anything other than photographing. I have the joy of meeting many amazing people and beautiful families. For me, they become more than customers, they are friends. I hope to be the right person to tell you a little bit of your story too!

Sao Paulo Family Photographer Karoline Saadi

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 demonstrates who I am, and that 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 are cultivated, stories shared, and everything is done with love and simplicity. With love!
