Belo Horizonte family photography by Adriana Costa of Minas Gerais, Brasil

For me, the greatest value of photography is the stories they tell us. That's why I became a family documentary photographer. Documentary photography is an area of ​​photography that aims to tell true stories, the way they actually occur. When turned to families, it allows them to leave to them not only images but records that represent them truly filled with the sensations and emotions that surround them in their experiences. It offers to show what they really are, even with all their imperfections, but in the end, see how beautiful this is! My focus is the simple things of life, the ordinary moments, those that, although they seem banal, are the ones that fill us, build us and allow us to see how we love and how we really are loved! For being a mother and knowing that the best memories of a family take place in our daily life, I have been doing this work with great joy. I am happy to have a mission to offer people a document that will become invaluable in the future for the history of each family. I am in Belo Horizonte (MG, Brazil), but I can go to families from other places who wish to keep memories of their stories.

Brazil based Luciana Castro is a family photographer for Minas Gerais and Belo Horizonte.

I am Belo Horizonte, mother of two, environmental engineer, and photographer. Above all, I am in love with my family. In 2014, my first son was born, and with him came the desire to dedicate myself to photography. In 2015, I graduated from the photography course at Escola de Imagem; since then, I have been working in the area. As an admirer of events that reflect people's daily lives and reality, I seek to record details that make them unique in their moments.

Rio de Janeiro birth photography by Liliane Cotta of Brazil

Since I was little I have been passionate about photography. I recorded parties, people, trips ... in short, anything that caught my attention. But this was a hobby, nothing serious. A few years ago, unhappy with my profession (I am an accountant, believe me !!!), I resigned to try to find out what my vocation, my mission, would be. At that time, it did not cross my mind that my hobby was a viable alternative, which could be my profession. It was a world very far from my reality. It took some time for my husband to be able to convince me to take a photography course and see it as a possibility. But, after I started, I soon realized that photography was my life purpose. My goal is to tell family stories. Eternalize the moments and fragments of joy and emotion of a day that will never return. One day our memory will fail and photography is the only physical thing that will make us remember the beautiful moments of life.

Portrait of Rio de Janeiro family photographer Gisele Soares of Brazil

Through my eyes, I show feelings, reflect emotions and keep beautiful stories in all their naturalness. I seek to document moments often unnoticed when lived or even that over time could fall into oblivion, but they will certainly be very important for every family. I see with my heart, I get involved with the moment and I simply reflect all the emotion, just look at my pictures. The first birth I photographed was the watershed in my life. Before, I just photographed families at events (weddings, 15 years and children's parties). But from it, I decided to study, study and study ... not only techniques related to this type of photography but everything that has to do with births. And I keep studying, always. I do not get tired of studying because I think I'm crawling and I still have a lot to learn. I am a mother, married, family photographer for 5 years, I live in Rio de Janeiro and I am available to go to you to document your history, wherever you want!
