Are you Ready to Schedule a Documentary Family Photo Session?

FAMILY COMES FIRST - Recently, some of our Brittany 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, Ille-et-Vilaine family photographers who are available right now. Find yours today!

Portrait of France family photographer Vincent Marquenie of Brittany

I bought my first camera in 2014, but who cares. As a travel lover, at first I took a lot of landscape photos. But very quickly, my interest in social photography took over. I like photographing people and above all, I like to highlight the spontaneous interactions between people. The emotions, the laughter, the tears, the couples, their love, the family, the kids and their so precious carelessness... If the photo was initially only a (strong) passion, the evolution of my life and my vision of happiness pushed me to want to live from this passion; to go after my dreams, in a way. (If you have JJ Goldman in mind, that's normal. Don't thank me.) So I try to transcribe these moments of sharing and for that, the reportage style is a natural choice. That is to say that I practically do not pose; I prefer to capture furtive but precious moments, to capture fleeting but important moments. (Actually, these two snippets have the exact same meaning, but I thought it sounded good.)

Morbihan family photography and portraits by Didier Ropers of Brittany France

I was born in Brittany, in Lorient, a region where I still live to this day. I work mainly in Brittany and in the Grand-Ouest, but sometimes I move everywhere in France on demand. And why not further, I have to my credit a few events in Ireland for example. For 20 years photography has been a hobby and I have lived solely from the professional practice of music, especially as a jazz musician. I hope I have retained a taste for harmony but also for improvisation. Jazz and documentary photography have what in common is not being able to foresee everything, organize everything, but to have to be ready to use the unforeseen to make it look beautiful. Today, photography has become my largely predominant activity, but this philosophy of improvisation has deeply permeated my practice.
