Are you Ready to Schedule a Documentary Family Photo Session?

FAMILY COMES FIRST - Recently, some of our France 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, Normandy 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.)

Ile-de-France family photography by Sandrine Siryani

I'm Sandrine, and I'm just over 30 years old. My husband came into my life almost 10 years ago. His humor, not always funny, seduced me, his curiosity and his talent as a guitarist convinced me, our love for the mountains and good wine brought us together. Two adorable little boys have come to complete our happiness, exhaust our energy and move our daily lives... What makes me happy: My eldest son, proud to have put on his shoes on his own… backwards, My little one bursting out laughing when my husband blows on her stomach, Ask me for 5 minutes in their room and watch them sleep: smile when seeing my baby's nose glued to his stuffed animal,... ask me how my big baby manages to sleep across the width of his bed. Share a good meal with friends and forget the time that flies, Open a good bottle of wine with my husband and look like an oenologist, Choose the highest peak, climb to the top and feel very small...
