I am Clara Sampaio, I photograph for passion and love my profession. Since I've changed architecture for wedding photography and family, I can say that I'm part of a select group of people who work with what they really like, and that makes all the difference. The language of my work is guided by photojournalism and most of the time I photograph the moments as they actually happen. I seek the truth of each couple's feelings to tell their love story with pictures.
As a family photographer, I have quite a task in my hands! A very responsible job. Tell stories, capture genuine feelings, document moments of happiness and love. I create my family images with an open heart and a free mind. I have restless and curious eyes ... eyes that see the world in the eagerness to stop time! I really want to know and be able to tell your family story!
I have always been in love with photography, so I was delighted with the possibility of doing it in one of the most significant moments of life: The Birth. A moment that marks the emergence of a new family, the beginning of a new journey and the arrival of a new life. My mission is to document, in detail, the moments of spontaneity that convey the emotion and essence that each moment has in store for that long-awaited nine-month moment for the whole family. I write in images the memory to be told to children, grandchildren and loved ones. Unique moments that will not be repeated. Photographing births is not simply about liking babies, grabbing a camera and pushing the button. It's a technically arduous mission on many fronts! We need to seek specialization in childbirth photography for such sensitivity and speed that the moment requires and respect the entire team that is involved in that birth.
From an early age, I wanted to be an artist (draftsman, painter, dancer) or a doctor (those who "help babies get out of their belly"). Some of my favorite childhood books were "Where the Babies Come From"; "Mom, how was I born?" and "Born This Way," which I have to this day, more than 30 years later. Only life is life! And it takes different directions, does not it? I graduated in Law! But I never lost my love for childbirth, for art, for people. Only years later, I was finally able to begin to study photography. My goal was to unite the love of always for the art of capturing moments in the form of photos, the love for births. I studied a lot, and I saw that it was exactly what I wanted. In addition, I ended up falling in love with documentary photography, humanistic and photojournalistic photography. I seek to see what no one sees, beauty beautiful and undisclosed. I believe that birth photography is a record of births and "rebirths." The baby is born and the mother is reborn, the woman. The feminine widens, the world gains new colors. A companion is born, brothers, uncles and aunts, grandparents and great-grandparents ... There is nothing more beautiful than witnessing the (re) birth of so many beings together. To photograph a childbirth is to put into images a whirlwind of dreams and feelings: love, joy, enthusiasm ... fears and uncertainties too, why not? tears and smiles ...
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!

Born in Teresópolis, a mountain town in the State of Rio de Janeiro, I grew up surrounded by an incredible family and inspiring wolves From an early age I got used to admiring the beautiful and the arts as ways of seeing reality. Graduated in Law, I exercise until today the profession with passion and dedication, qualities that I transpose to all the domains of my personal and professional life. The photograph arose from the need to record my wandering around the world and the people who make my universe more beautiful and happy. Then, I began to study photography technique with a keen eye, in order to eternalize everything that poetically my eyes and lenses can capture. However, no teacher or book is able to teach us to open the soul of the photographed, which is only possible if he generously wants to share his inner world and his experiences.
Hello! I'm Bruno and I love helping families to collect their memories. I'm from Rio de Janeiro / Brazil but I'm a destination photographer. My passion for photography began as photographed, seeing me in the old family albums and trying to relive all those moments. That deepened when I graduated in Visual Arts 10 years ago. The power of a keepsake is something that makes my eyes shine and providing this is very rewarding. I'm in the photographic industry for some years, which allowed me to photograph families, births, weddings, teach workshops and win some awards. Want to know more? Get in touch :)
I am Ana Telma, a family photographer, and I am very happy that you are here in my corner, trying to know a little more about me and my work. :) Hope you like! I love my family, my safe harbor, my certainty of always love and lap in my life. I have relatives in Rio, Minas, São Paulo and even outside Brazil. I think that's why I always love to travel! I love to study too! In addition to studying a lot of photography, I already did a degree in Computer Science and Journalism.
Photography has been part of my life since I was 14 when I got my first digital camera. I spent hours shooting and editing portrait and fell in love with it. In 2016 I decided that I needed a job that had meaning and purpose. For this reason, I decided to leave a 9-year career in the oil industry to invest all my energy in weddings, family, and birth photography and I couldn´t be happier with this decision.
Deeply in love with moments that brings up the best of emotions that is simple yet beautiful and cozy. It was in the Photography classes of the Journalism and Advertising graduation courses of Universidade Federal Fluminense that I discovered my passion for telling stories through images. Since then, I have focused on people and the different relationships that surround them. My goal is to eternalize in images real stories composed of love, emotions and simple moments. I believe in photography as an art that allows me to capture and perpetuate the moments and the distinct phases of life as time passes by.
Brazilian, mother, in love with nature, animals, and family photography. I like to photograph the feelings, the looks, the moments ... I imagine the grandchildren of my clients opening their albums in thirty years and realizing, through the photos. If you want more than a register, you want feelings in pictures, it will be a pleasure to tell your family story through my lenses.
