Milan Family Photographer Massimiliano Becatti

I was born in 1970 in a lovely place close to Lake Como and Lake Maggiore, beautiful lakes of Northern Italy. Since I was a little boy I have been fascinated by “photography” and it is now twenty years that I have been working in this field. In the last fifteen years I have been working as a photographer, especially for weddings. In 2012, in Milan, I set up “WeddingStudio” together with other colleagues. I take photos of wedding days giving a “ photojournalistic” cut to my pictures. That is why I define myself as a “modern storyteller”. Telling stories and touching people through my pictures: that is what I love to do. That is my job and my passion. And when there is passion in what you do, you see the difference! I like thinking and telling about your wedding in a different way: the newlyweds have to live and enjoy every moment of that day and share every moment with their loved ones. That is why I like to become “invisible” and catch details, shades, glances, moods and going on gestures. My job is a wonderful job and every time that one of my pictures can stir up emotions or recollections in people looking at it I think that considering it as “wonderful” is still not enough...

East Flanders family photography by Ruth Wytinck, of Flanders Belgium

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.

Sao Paulo Family Photographer Karoline Saadi

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!

Polona Avanzo is a Family Photojournalist of Ljubljana, Slovenia

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.

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.

Estelle Chhor is a French Family Photojournalist from Herault

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.

Valencia Spain Family Photographer Antonio Calatayud

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.

Tallinn family photography and portraits by Elika Hunt of Harju County Estonia

I love what I do. I’m lucky that my passion’s my work. It’s the best possible starting point in creating results with the maximum love, attention and care. Being a photographer, I feel great when I’m surrounded by real life, and draw a lot of inspiration from art, music, dance, nature, my children and my beloved husband. Photography helps me capture anything I feel is important to remember. One photograph can bring me right back to the feelings, sounds, and even smells of the moment. With every picture, I am telling mine and your family’s unwritten stories and giving them that gift to keep and pass along.
