Sometimes it seems the kids will never grow up and then you wake up one day and they are leaving home. Wouldn't it be wonderful then to go back in time and cherish those beautiful moments you all had together?! You might not think your everyday life very special, but, believe me, it is. This is what defines your family and I will come to your home to document all the fun and laughter, the little fights and tears. The best thing is: Your whole family will be in the pictures - even you who usually is the person behind the camera or phone. Why do I like family photography so much? I started out as a documentary wedding photographer and though I still love shooting beautiful couples and crazy parties on the dancefloor, I soon figured that all those kids getting wild on that day interested me even more. So I took my experience and steely nerves to that new genre of family photography, and found that it is not much different. With both, moment is key. The moments I collect over the day will make the families own story. Working at their home I try to find a lot of different perspectives and moments. I want to document the family with beautiful and surprising images that will make them see themselves anew I have been working as a documentary wedding and family photographer for seven years now. As a photographer, it is very important to keep pushing yourself. I don't want to become someone who settles in a routine, proclaiming "I found my style and not going to change anything!". This is called lazyness. There are so many great photographers out there and you can still learn a lot from them. That is why I try to attend a workshop once a year, either to learn more about technical skills like using flashes in a creative way or editing my pictures to the best or just getting inspired by the way other photographers approach their work. This has helped me to find my own unique style and has won me lots of awards. I especially love to be a curator for award collections. This sharpens your eye and makes you think about what makes an image relevant and beautiful.
It's about ten years since I became a photographer. But I will not tell you the story of "passionate about photography from an early age ..." because to be honest, I arrived in this environment by chance. It was a question of meeting especially. But over time, what was initially a simple job became a passion. Already thanks to the similarities that I have been able to find with my initial vocational vocation in specialized education, which has allowed me to develop human qualities and this desire to put know-how at the service of the other. Psychology, the faculty of adaptation, understanding, and accompaniment are an integral part of my approach.
I am a photographer because I can put order into my world this way and give it a meaning. When everything comes in its right place in my viewfinder, nothing is more satisfying! I am passionate, perfectionist, independent, workaholic. As far as I can remember, I have always been looking for an artistic way to express myself. Some years ago, when I got my first camera, I immediately knew it was it! A revelation and immediate passion quickly focused to portrait and social pictures.
Personally, I think that the most interesting thing that can be is the ordinary everyday life. This is what I would like to see most in my archive, and these are the things I suggest keeping for you. I've been taking photos for 10 years already. At the same time, I never stopped studying: the school of film photography and hand printing, the Faculty of Photojournalism, the Photo Department, numerous master classes and meetings with photographers, art historians and artists - all this influenced and shaped me as a photographer.
My first paid jobs were posed newborn photo shoots. Quickly I realized that making photos of the moments which are normally not being photographed are much more beautiful than the posed ones. Like hugging the baby when a bit sad, when struggling with the tiny buttons to dress the baby or just the quick kiss by the brother or sister. All kinds of moments when you really capture emotions and thats what I am enjoying a lot. 4 years ago I became mother for the first time and photos are far more valuable to me than before. So many funny, unexpected, cozy and definitely ‘frustrating’ family moments, which are every day different. I really enjoy having my oldest son around (4 years) when he comes of the toilet, while pulling up his pants up to to his armpits…. Or my youngest son (2 years) trying to put a sandwich at once in his mouth. These kind of moments have made my decision to specialise in documentary family photography incorporating Day In My Life Photography.
I love life, my children, my husband, my life. I still have 30 years in my head even though I know it was a long time ago that I no longer have them. I am proud to be a Quebecer and I do everything to share my origins with my children. Eternal optimist - Adept of positive thinking, pipelette in my spare time, spontaneous, bitter teddy. I like gardening (organic), I'm green, I make more and more my housewares and we have a goal zero waste for the family and I travel by bike or on foot. I believe in citizen mobilization to improve the world. And for the more futile side, I like to eat, I cook a lot (no industrial dishes at home), I like to taste a good wine, pasta, my darling's good homemade bread, raspberries (moss Raspberry dark chocolate is what I prefer !!). I like walks in nature, traveling, Italy, my friends, my cat, American and Quebec TV series, knitting, Quebec music, my job ... And I like meeting new people! :-)
Capturing family life is one of my biggest passions. Maybe because I love to photograph real moments in life. Maybe because I love the connections and love between family members or maybe because it's such an honest and pure way of photographing life. The idea of me capturing future memories for a whole family makes me want to try extra hard to find the little details and special moments of a family and photograph them. Next to that I also try to capture the biggest chaos as a perfect whole.
I was born and raised in Antwerp, Belgium. At a young age, I received my first camera as a birthday gift. Immediately, I started making pictures of everything and everybody around me. And I never stopped :) Now, being a father of two, I truly see the power of family photography. Not the posed portraits, that don't have any emotion in them, but the real moments. Moments that are not always beautiful (strawberries on a white rug, tantrums in the bathtub,...) but that I want to remember when my kids will be all grown up. Moments that show how a family sticks together, loves and comforts each other. And that's exactly what I want to give my clients.
Photography and people are Joshua’s two greatest passions. Utterly curious – a nice legacy she got from her grandmother – she loves to meet new people, observe them and capture what they are all about. She is both outgoing and calm so to make everyone feel at ease. Very patient, she has a special radar for shenanigans. Her goal is to document small but great moments that might otherwise go unnoticed, to capture the moment just as it felt that day. She is a visual storyteller. Mostly self-taught, she has been a professional photographer for the last 11 years, full time since 2013. She is based in Antwerp, Belgium, and travels in (and sometimes out) Europe for Family, Day in the Life sessions and Weddings. She is at her best when shooting true, unstaged and profound moments and events – in a relaxed atmosphere.
Our greatest wealth (Dennis) was born in 2016. It's great to watch him grow up and the best sound is his burst of laughter! Yes, literally all clichés are true (fair is fair, even the less fun)! Since we have our dog Floora Dennis seems to flourish even more and it is really beautiful to see the two together. I am secretly quite a house sparrow. We have the luxury that we live wonderfully outside on a farm (arable farming) and I can, therefore, be found in and around the house. Floora is a real working dog and once a week I am going to drive her sheep. That is really my way of discharging and getting new energy and inspiration. It's the little things in life that I love so much. Since those little things can actually be very big. That is why it has become my passion to capture moments in life. Whether this is a wedding, birth or just a normal day "taken from life". No posing and looking in the camera, but real life. Pure - Narrative - Real and also a bit raw.
HI! My name is Joosje Janssen and I'm a documentary family photographer from the Netherlands. JNSSN Photography stands for spontaneity and authenticity. As far as I am concerned, photos are best when they tell a story and when they show life as it really is; unpolished, realistic and above all not posed! Every family and every person has their own habits, their own rituals and that makes every family and every person unique. That is why documentary family photography stole my heart. Because by photographing life as it is, you show who you really are. And there is nothing more special than that! Photos are precious and tangible memories that can last a lifetime. If you ask me, ordinary life is more than worth remembering forever.
Hello! I'm Alice, a photographer in Cambridge, UK. I have a young family and a cat who misses the quiet life. My house is full of Lego and my garage is full of books I might yet read. I like making things, children's stories about more than just falling asleep in the end, and dark chocolate but a Freddo will do. As a photographer, I love natural light, real life, true personalities, details, humour and telling a story. I love photos that mean something. I believe that being yourself in your photos is something to celebrate and champion. That's why family photojournalism makes my eyes light up. My documentary family photo sessions range from 1.5 hours to a full day. Be yourselves. Best behaviour optional. For photographers, one to one mentoring is available.
I am Marine, professional photographer since 2002, mother of 2 beautiful children, based in Paris, France. What moves me? Love, of course! I'm addicted to emotions, I like the laughter, the tears of joy, and the impression they leave in our hearts. I love family albums, how they trace our history and define us. That is why I really think it's important to keep beautiful images of the highlights of our lives. After studying philosophy and acquiring a degree in visual arts, I became, in 2002, an assistant to Marc Riboud (former president of Magnum Photos). At the same time I produced my first photojournalistic assignments, interested in relations between individuals, family and living areas. Until 2007, I created photojournalistic assignments, working with French press and performed in parallel event-reports, and private (portraits, weddings, etc. ...). In 2007, I became a mother for the first time and found it difficult to balance work and motherhood. Ernestine et sa famille is a life plan to adapt my professional life to my family life in harmony with my values. Today, I propose my photojournalistic expertise for your corporate and private events. Taking the time to know you, to really understand who you are, and your relationships with those you love, that's the secret of my work and gives it meaning. I produce wedding and life photo-reportage. I have a candid and documentary approach. No matter if it's your wedding day or a day in your family life, the way i work is the same, i document your day, capturing the story of your day, and putting human being at the center of my attention. I tell a story, your story. REAL LIFE IS SO MORE INTERESTING! I tell a story, your story.
The next word I learned after 'mommy' and 'daddy', was probably 'aperture'. My father is a photographer you see. And I spend quite a few hours in the darkroom watching the pictures he took showing up. But it was not until I was planning a trip to New York that I took an interest in photography myself. I borrowed my father's Pentax and asked him what exactly I should do with it, the day before leaving. Right. Not the best of my images, you can imagine ;-) So I took some photography classes and really got the hang of it. I developed an interest in people photography and documentary photography because I really like searching for the best possible images in a given situation, without interfering. The baby/family: The first weeks together. Despite sleep deprivation, maternity tears, physical discomfort, they may be the most beautiful and intense weeks of your life. Who would like to hold you in your memory? Some parents have their child photographed during this period (also known as newborn photography), but it is not nice if you also like the atmosphere, the baby room, the emotions, the visit, grandpa and grandma and the cards based on the pictures can capture? As it was, to always remember. And as a very valuable time document for your child (ren). A similar 'time document' with beautiful, special photos that show what it was like can also be made very nicely with, for example, a birthday party, anniversary, multi-year wedding party, in short when you celebrate life! Somewhere in the first few weeks with your baby, at a party or just when it suits you, iSi photography comes to your home, or wherever you are, to make a special and atmospheric report in a matter of hours.
In 2007 I graduated as a photographer at the Media and Design Academy in Genk. I am established as a photographer in Limburg and more specifically Hasselt, but I work throughout Flanders and far beyond! Since I am the father of two fantastic daughters and son I also like to make portraits of children and babies. This way you can book a "Day in the Life" session with me. At a Day In The Life session, I walk with your family for half a day or a whole day. I photograph you as you are at that moment and follow you in the ordinary things of the day. That means that we do what you want. Standing along the line on the football field, eating pancakes after a refreshing walk through the woods, staring out the window, playing mischief, going to grandpa and grandma, putting on princess dresses with girlfriends, ...
I have always been interested in photography but my curiosity and love for nature led me to study forestry. However, my passion for photography never left me. After my degree in forestry, I started to study photography as well. Being a mum of two, I know how joyful and difficult at the same time parenthood is, I decided to combine my two passions in documentary family photography - real and memorable moments of everyday life.
I find my inspiration in both social documentary and fashion shoots. As a family photographer, my goal is to capture decisive moments of the day. Photography entered in my life when I was 15 and never quit me. It is important for me to treat each client as unique. I live in France and love to travel all around the world to learn about other cultures and different ways of life. These experiences nourish my own work.
It's an honour to provide families with images that reflect how their life is now - images that can be enjoyed in this moment, and treasured in the future. I'm from New Zealand, and after years working in educational development, am now living in Berlin, learning German, and following my passion in photography. My personal beliefs are reflected in the photos I take; they have the power to record, express and honour moments, that can be cherished again as time goes by.
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 documentary photographer.
By taking pictures of my sons, the value of small everyday moments became and becomes really clear to me. I photograph them during game and mischief, during fun moments and crying parties, during fraternization and quarrels. These pictures 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 come everywhere. A trip abroad is also perfectly possible.
I have a great job! 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 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. You can also describe my style as cozy, nice and loose, intimate, and relaxed with atmospheric photos that are not too dark, not too light, and sometimes artistic. Everything just delicious as it is and with a hint of Karen.
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 the moment, and I love when I capture one. I love instant and instinct. I don't like to talk about myself, my photographs are more talkative. I'm french, working in Pau, Biarritz and worldwide. I'm 39, two daughters.
Hi! I’m Rose and I have three young children, two pesky cats, and one very patient husband and we all live together near Bath. I absolutely love the fun of having young children, but I also know how very tiring and testing this time can be. I often have moments looking at my small people when I just wish I could freeze time, bottle their cuteness and remember how these moments feel: admiring the gorgeous squishy-ness of my toddler; looking into the joyous face of my pre-schooler as he dances with no inhibitions; being outwitted by my 8-year-old negotiating on pocket money. Photography is my way of recording all these precious stages in our lives, just a little bit – for myself, my children, and for other families. I love to capture the real moments, as you live them. The joy, the tears, the love, the raw emotions. Doing what you normally do. How you normally do it. I want an image to take you right back to that time in your life, and how it felt to be there. Your little family. Just as you are.
Hugger. Mother. Earl Grey tea drinker. And, oh yes. Rather importantly, I'm obsessed with light, finding it and looking at it. I love just watching different qualities of light and seeing how it moves and changes the world. I'm a former BBC journalist who went on to study an MA in Photojournalism and follow my photography passion. Photographing families and creating memories for them was born out of that passion.
About 35 years ago I received my very first camera as a gift for my solemn communion. Among other things, I took pictures of the rhubarb in our garden, something that my father made fun of. Professionally I sought refuge in the catering industry and later in journalism, where a thorough knowledge of photography proved to be an interesting added value. From 2010 I followed countless photography modules in evening school, and since the number of published photos and assignments started to get in the way of my work as a journalist, I have been professionally fully involved in photography since 2019.

She looks forward meeting new people and discover new places. Also when this is outside the Netherlands, actually, she loves to!
Hi, I'm a multi award winning photographer who has a decade of experience photographing weddings, families and all manner of random and wonderful things. My main focus these days is families and I love nothing more than doing something fun with awesome little people, and photographing their unique and amazing personalities. I don't pose people, I don't order them about and tell them what to do - it's all about the children just living their best lives, and when that happens I can create incredible memories that are REAL and represent exactly how that family was in that specific moment in time. It's these images that really tell the story of a family, and it's an huge honour to get to be the one to preserve that snapshot of their lives.
During a photo report, everything revolves around you or you. Who I am is not important; I am present but also not. I put you at ease and listen to your wishes. As soon as I put down my camera I am Sandra, born in 1973 and a photographer. Crazy about traveling, sports, music, reading and going out. A real summer and evening person who enjoys life. But I prefer to have my camera, a Canon, around my neck to do what I love the most: photography. After the basic training at the Fotovakschool in Amsterdam, I continued with the training to become a professional photographer. A very nice education that I enjoyed and completed alongside my full-time job. After that, I followed various training courses, when I felt more and more which way I wanted to go with my photography.
A father of two wonderful boys, I'm absolutely set on documenting their lives. The moments that are overlooked by most are cherished by me and something I strive capture for other families. My documentary portrait sessions capture real personality. Removing the pressure of a studio environment results in a relaxed environment that children are far more comfortable in, and the images taken are more reflective of their usual self – standing out from your standard photography studio shots. I photograph your little ones playing, baking, reading and laughing, parents can get in on the action too, and my “document your day” sessions allow me to capture family life at home as it unfolds.
I photograph as I paint and that is quite dark. I love melancholy, light, love, and self-mockery. From Sally Mann, Tim Burton, Lars von Trier & Darren Aronofsky. But also of honesty, purity, and serenity ... I am an old soul and have been swimming quite a lot. That made me a very positive person with a lot of perseverance. I am always cheerful and smiley and have an incredible amount of patience for everything and everyone - except myself;) An extroverted introvert, very insecure alongside my self-assured me. Always looking for people who see the world as I see it: beautiful, wonderful, tolerant, and therefore entirely for everyone. I take your photos, your memories and that is why I think it is very important that you feel addressed to who I am. Only with whom you feel good can you let go of everything and be yourself.
My name is Gabriella. I am a documentary photographer based in the South of France in Occitanie, mother of 4 boys, and passionate about documenting the real life. As a child, I spent hours looking at family photos at home or with my grandparents ... I remember the happiness, sitting on the ground, looking at those old photos spread out in front of me. I tried by touching them to imagine the life of my ancestors and searched for the story behind it. Today, I am the photographer who tells the stories of families and it is wonderful.
Friends tell me I am a man with many hobbies. "You do everything, don't you?" Well, I can't deny that. I have a curious mind and I try a lot of different things and some things stick with me. That's how I started skateboarding, (wind)surfing, riding a motorcycle, learned to fix this motorcycle, and rebuild an old moped. Broadening my mind and learning different skills is what gives me energy. However varied these hobbies might seem, what I experience by mastering new skills is the rough, pure, and real sense of life. Jumping off a curb with your skateboard has something pure. No focus and you will fall, too tense and you will fall, a foggy head, and you will fall. This means there has to be some kind of balance between focus and relaxation. Unimportant elements of the day will disappear into the background and you only live this very moment, and that is 'real'. With my photography, I am looking for these pure and real moments. When I take pictures, I capture life how it is and goes. This means that in a family shoot everyone is allowed to decide for themselves what they wear that day, or how tidy the house is. Life consists of so many things that have to be done, that are supposed to be or that are not allowed. Leave it! Let it flow, it doesn't matter, beautiful moments arise everywhere, I'll capture them.
I'm based between Kent and Jersey in the Channel Islands, my family home. I've had a love of photography from an early age and I've been lucky enough to have been photographing weddings professionally for 11 years, and more recently families. I have a passion for creating authentic, honest imagery and have fallen in love with documenting family life. As a mother myself, I know all too well how quickly children grow up. I would have adored having those wonderful, funny, tricky, chaotic, emotional, real moments captured and that I had been in the frame! I love capturing the connections and dynamics between a family and freezing those moments that often as a parent go unseen. Magical moments in isolation. I come from a family of creatives so I suppose it was no surprise photography would be in my life. When I'm not behind the camera, you'll find me in the garden where I can totally lose myself or making sourdough!
My approach to family and wedding photography is that of a documentary. I do not intervene, or really little, and I prefer the capture of candid images. My main goal is to tell your story and to transcribe in images what moves me in your real life. With this in mind, I am particularly attentive to MOMENTS. I want to leave you something about the beauty of your family ties, and I like to document with sincere and authentic photographs, the life of the families who entrust me with this beautiful mission.
I have always been passionate about cinema and since childhood, I was clear that I wanted to devote myself to audiovisual art. Hanging from a camera wherever I went, I decided that I wanted to dedicate myself professionally to my passion. I enrolled in Audiovisual Communication to acquire knowledge and become a specialist in different languages: photography, cinema, videos, multimedia, television, and radio. During the last years of my career, I launched myself into the world of work and began to work in films as "meritorious decoration." It was an interesting job because of my passion for cinema, but the decoration was not my thing, so I started to alternate different jobs as an edition and camera assistant. In 2004 I graduated and at the time I had the possibility, I took a camera and started recording and working as a camera operator. It was what I really liked and where I was going to put all my effort. During my professional career, I have worked with many producers, making fiction, advertising, corporate and programs. From each and everyone, I draw a valuable experience.
Photographer since 2011 I specialized in wedding reporting. I was able to discover this environment and bloom there. After having accompanied nearly 100 couples and by dint of work, I am proud to see many of my images rewarded by international professional bodies. In 2016 a little guy comes to upset my certainties. I discover the joys of fatherhood and find with my partner how children grow up quickly. I had a click, an intense desire to explore the world of childhood and family. That's why I decided to look at family photos as I do for weddings, as a documentary, a photographic story that allows a family to tell, to tell each other to share memories (authentic ) forever.
I like to take care of someone else. In the first place for my husband Frank and our beautiful, funny and sometimes somewhat stubborn daughter Noor. But also for my parents now that they can use my help so well. My sense of responsibility is great. When I go on vacation, I arrange everything down to the last detail. It feels good to be able to solve something for someone else, to make sure things are going well. You can also describe me as an emotional person. I feel other people effortlessly. Beautiful things quickly touch me, especially when skiing. Being active outdoors, the white mountains, beautiful sun, and audible silence. But also an afternoon swim with Noor, the tears that automatically come with a film or moving book. Even the piece of chocolate with a cup of warm tea is a pure pleasure for me. I have been very patient since Noor. Quite special if you consider that I absolutely did not have it before. Patience is a good quality, especially in birth photography. A birth simply cannot be controlled. It really is the art of the click at the right time. This also applies to the portraits of children. I playfully look for that one look, that precious moment to capture as a lasting memory in an all-encompassing image.
I’m Marion, a family photographer looking to capture the heart and soul of families with its raw love, energy, and playfulness. I offer natural family, children and baby photography to capture the wonder of childhood through your children’s eyes, big or small. I also offer maternity photography for mums-to-be. I am based in South East London near Kent.
Hello! I’m Ralu, a London family photographer. I am based in Essex, but I shoot all over the UK, across Europe and worldwide. I’m the mother of 5 crazy kids and I am in love with people’s stories. To me, family photography is about capturing your life as it is right now. I know that parenting is not easy, which is why I thrive on sessions where kids get to be kids, where their personalities can shine, where I can capture both the maddening chaos and the overwhelming love that they bring to your lives. Your life may not be perfect, but it is yours and it deserves to be celebrated. I can help you do that.
I’m Ana and I am a family photographer in Portugal, specializing in documentary photography. I make honest photographs of families as they live their day and life happens and am available to travel anywhere in the world to photograph your family’s day in the life.
I live in Hamburg with my husband and our two daughters. I have Russian roots, I grew up in Moscow and Berlin. I worked as a designer in the digital field for over 10 years, until at some point I realized that I would like to go other ways professionally and decided to devote myself completely to photography. Photography has been a part of my life for a long time: I used to like taking photos while traveling or in the city, now I like to take photos of people, especially children.
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!
The gal looking through that window into your world. I'm mum to a nearly 18yr old forensic science student, mummy to a 3 yr old climbing princess with goggles on her head and always in a tutu, step-mum to a 10yr old flamingo-obsessed singing mermaid, and an 8yr old footballer! I should probably mention my gorgeous and supportive hubby who can not only fix the electrics but also cooks me delicious dinners and spoils me rotten. Life here is organised chaos, and I wouldn't have it any other way. 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.
Hi! I'm a birth photographer in Haute Savoie and Switzerland. In love with birth, newborn, breastfeeding, and love!!
Why am I a photographer? Because I don't know how to sing :) In fact, it's the shortest way I've found to touch people's hearts ... Since the birth of my son in 2010, the portrait fascinates me, the beauty of a face, the harmony of a silhouette ... I marvel at the daily diversity of our bodies and our faces. A few years later, with the arrival of my daughter, this quest for aesthetics has evolved. I understood that an image was nothing without an intention, a laugh, a feeling ... This is how the family has become my greatest source of inspiration. I feel today a deep joy to give you my vision of the small daily happiness, as great moments of life! In short, I found what really matters.
Born in Ghent and living in Aalst. Married with Heike and father of Mon (6) and Miene (4). Together, my everything. In addition, I love the sea, music, sour sweets and photography of course. For me, photography is a hobby that got out of hand. After enthusiastic reactions to my travel photos, friends sometimes asked me to photograph their children or even their marriage. And successfully, because many tens of thousands of photos later, I was able to make my profession out of photography. My style? Spontaneous, romantic, no-nonsense 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.
My name is Miranda van Assema, 37 years old and together with Marcel I live in Medemblik. Through the Graphic profession, I came into contact with photography, in which I found my passion. The best thing about photography is to capture memories for life! My camera therefore rarely deviates from my side. I do not like posed pictures, but rather of real moments and real situations, just as it is. My style can be described as spontaneous, pure, unforced and journalistic. What I really enjoy is the small moments of happiness every day. In our daily hectic we sometimes forget it, but it is precisely in those little things that our happiness lies. Capturing these moments is the best thing I do.
My whole life I have been fond of photos and photography. That is why in 2010 I decided to develop myself further by following a photography study. In 2012 I obtained my diploma as a professional photographer. Here I became even more enthusiastic about photography. The fact that I can also make others happy with this and make them happy is something I love the most! It's nice that people dare to open up and let me into their lives. That they trust me to capture a part of their lives and see how beautiful it is to keep these valuable memories forever. I keep finding that special every time and that makes me truly happy and happy! My husband and I have a wonderful family with a son and daughter and our sweet dog Lola, which we love very much. We have a lovely family and are very happy with this. I love to travel a lot. There is so much to see in the world and that does not necessarily have to be very far away. There is something to discover everywhere and something to enjoy (and of course to photograph, because even then I want to capture as much as possible). I often use these photos again for the cards and posters that I make. I love black and white photos, which is reflected in my work, but I also love photos from the 50s and 60s. I also find street photography fascinating, I think it is beautiful that it reflects a time image and that it is real. In addition, I really like humor in photography. That is probably because I also think humor is very important.
Award-winning documentary family photographer and videographer based in Lancashire. I’m guessing you’re here because you’re looking for an alternative to the traditional lifestyle family photography and videography? Like me, you HATE the idea of posing. You also know your kids probably won’t respond well to ‘direction’ to get that perfect family portrait or the baby will choose the photo shoot day to be grizzly! Whether you’re camera shy, worry your house isn’t ‘photo shoot’ worthy or simply struggling to find time to fit in a family shoot in then I may have the answer for you. Because my documentary approach to family photography allows me to capture those 'real', honest family moments. To capture the connections, the silliness, the knowing smiles and all the moments in-between that you may even miss in your everyday. So if you're after an alternative to documenting family life and want someone to come with their camera and make it feel more like a friend was hanging out with you...then it would be lovely to hear from you. We can chat some more and help you work out if I'm the perfect family photographer and videographer for you.
I love families, love, trust in each other, being able to be yourself and develop in families. And I think it's great to record that. Because growing up involves trial and error, discovering the world, first in your family and then an increasingly large world. And I think it's the best thing in the world to be able to capture that with photos.
Of course, I am passionate about 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. But behind the family photographer, there is also a person with his own personality. After all, you know who you can expect on the other side of the camera when you book me. Anyone can take photos, but to create images that are really overflowing with emotion, you have to be particularly comfortable with the lens and that is only possible if it clicks not only on the camera but also between us!
I am a self-taught family photographer with a documentary approach. I take pictures in private homes or outdoors because I believe that natural interaction creates the best images of the family. I am from Belgium and moved to Denmark in 2007. Here I now have my family and we live in a small village on Sorø, with quiet and open spaces. I am a trained chemist and have been able to work in photography. I am drawn to moments of presence and contemplation, and these are, among other things, those I capture with my camera in your family. Therefore, it is also very important to me that everyone feels comfortable with me and my camera. This can take time and that is why I always shoot for a long period of time.
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.
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!
One day I found myself between posed portraits, which I felt kind of faked and did not reflect my style, and documentary photography, which captures real family moments but sometimes feels too dark or too raw. So, I created my own style of photography. An unscripted relaxed photography, with a clean beautiful edit. I've been a professional photographer for several years and I have had the honor to be part of several family celebrations and special moments. Since the moment I transformed my business into documentary photography, I've never been happier. The individuals and families I photograph are more than clients, they are true connections, and I am privileged to be part of their lives. I’m truly lucky, I have the best customers, I really do!
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.
