Quebec and Montreal are home to documentary family photographer Adeline Leonti

I choose to photograph and document Life! True moments, emotions, connections, the love and the essence of your family is what I love to capture in real-life. I feel very privileged to "tell the story" of memorable and precious moments of your life, capturing all the authenticity of your environment. I particularly love documenting birth stories. Witness and honor the sacred experience of womanhood is something that heartily interests me.

KIngston, Ontario Family Photographer Viara Mileva

I was born in Bulgaria, and have lived in the United Kingdom, Saskatchewan, Toronto, and the Netherlands. Before becoming a family 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.

Sao Paulo family photography by Cibele Barreto Mendes of Brazil

Hello, my name is Cibele, but you can call me Ci. I live in São Paulo with my family. I graduated in advertising at Mackenzie with a post-graduate degree in MKT in Lisbon, the city where I lived for ten years. I worked in the marketing area for a long time, but it was with motherhood that I discovered my true vocation: being a photographer. We are a family-owned and operated business. I usually say that motherhood brought me three great passions: Clara, João, and Fotografia. Every mother is a little photographer of her children, isn't she? The desire to photograph my children daily, in everyday scenes with natural light, took me to another world and opened up the possibility of facing Photography as art - photographing as an act of love. The curiosity for the photo has increased over time, my professional life has changed since then. I became a mother and rediscovered myself through the sensitive photographic record and attentive to the details that surround us. Today I have this privilege, which is to give families a little of my view of their world. After all, I think I'm a storyteller too.

Chris Shum is a San Francisco based Family Photojournalist.

Ever since I was a teenager, I have always enjoyed taking pictures with the camera my dad passed onto me, capturing the things, people and places around me. In 2007, I decided to turn this passion of mine into my career. Since then I have been shooting weddings, engagements, special events, family, kids and babies. I love telling stories with my camera, and my pictures demonstrated my characteristic style and unique perspective, simple yet elegant. I take great pride to apply my skills and talent to document the important and precious moments of life of my clients into lasting fine art pictures. It gives me great satisfaction to be able to capture these memories for my clients so they can cherish a lifetime.
