Are you Ready to Schedule a Documentary Family Photo Session?

FAMILY COMES FIRST - Recently, some of our Nouvelle-Aquitaine family photojournalists have communicated their readiness to work with families who are able to carry on with their normal life and who want it documented. Family Photojournalist Association professional members offer a distinct and natural style of unobtrusive photography that will capture genuine, candid moments of you, your children, and even extended family enjoying time together...everyone gets in the pictures and you will likely forget the photographer is even there.

The purpose of documentary family photography is to tell a story — your story. You will be able to feel the love that you have for one another in the images. You will see the beauty that results when you are not posed or directed by your photographer to sit in a contrived position and smile on command at the camera. The FPJA has an abundance of top-ranked, Gironde family photographers who are available right now. Find yours today!

Nouvelle-Aquitaine and Gironde family photographer Isabelle Dohin - France FPJA

I discovered the picture from an early age because I was lucky that dad was a photo enthusiast and we had, at home, a dark room, in which I loved to lose myself! The silver was my first love, then very quickly the digital with its innumerable possibilities to preserve preciously, like a treasure, your sweetest memories. I live near Bordeaux and I travel all over France and abroad to make your memories unforgettable moments ...

Antwerp family and wedding photographer Joshua Dhondt - FPJA of Belgium and Flanders

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.

La Rochelle family photography by Florent Fauqueux - Nouvelle-Aquitaine Charente-Maritime France FPJA

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.

Somme family photographer Nao Fujiwara of Hauts-de-France

I am a photographer of family and marriage in Abbeville, in the Somme, in Hauts de France. The distance does not scare me, I am ready to move everywhere in France and even everywhere in the world if you wish. I am Japanese, mother of two children. My childhood was shared between France and Japan and I rubbed French even being in Japan, China, or the United States. I met my dear French husband in Tokyo. I speak perfect French and Japanese and also English (I lived 5 years in the United States, Texas) and a little Chinese. I was often called Little Nao hence the name "Little Nao Photography". I like to immortalize the emotions, the moments on the spot, without artifice, without posing. Discreetly or by interacting with my subjects, I observe and I always stand ready to capture the decisive moments. What I'm trying to photograph is the extraordinary in the ordinary. Whether at a special event or a day like any other, I like to find beauty in banalities. My goal is to tell a story, to allow you to relive the moment through my photographs.
