Hainaut Family Photographers

Photographers in Hainaut for Family, Vacation, Birth

Charleroi, Mons, La Louviere, Tournai, Mouscron

We take a documentary, real-life, real-settings approach to photographing your family’s daily events, outings, reunions or parties. And as documentary photographers, we’re not looking to pose your family into a “funny” situation or stage-direct your celebrations. We just know that families look their best “acting naturally” — because they’re not acting, they’re actually enjoying themselves!

Emilie Valet is a family photographer based in Wallonie - Belgium Family Photojournalist Association.

I have always been attracted by pictures. Child I did a lot of drawing and painting ... Teen, I cut pictures in fashion magazines, I made collages... One day I inherited my parents’ old camera. A small compact camera (film camera obviously) ... and I discovered the magic of the photos. At 18, I emptied my bank account to buy a reflex ... and from that moment, I was unstoppable! With the birth of my children, my passion took a new turn, I had even more desire to tell things and to keep track of all these precious moments that we lived and that I saw spinning at full speed! The idea that others surely also wanted to have images of their lives, their daily moments, then sprouted. I wanted to tell other stories, to enrich everyone's memories. And to do it for them, as I did for myself, means to be immersed in their daily life to capture real, natural and spontaneous moments of life.

Belgium family photographer Emilie Marchandise works all around Wallonie.

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.
