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.

Spain family photographer Nacho Alba works for clients in Madrid.

We are also a family. Therefore, we know how important it is to have memories and to keep them, despite how quickly time passes. One day we wanted to photograph happiness, and we asked ourselves, where is it? At that moment we realized something that we had not been able to see. We were able to understand that happiness does not come from trips or specific things we can do, from an event or a celebration, but that real happiness is with us every day, in the routine of our life, of our home, together with the people we love the most: in games, in the bedtime story, in the afternoons lying on the couch watching a movie and eating popcorn, on walks to the park ...

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.

Lisbon family photography by Debora Prates of Portugal

I started investing in photography after the birth of my first child, 12 years ago. I bought a camera to record these moments and I was very disappointed with the result of the images. So I decided to study and I haven't stopped until today! In a short time, this great passion and the desire to transform other people's lives also emerged, and in 2013 I finished my professional photography course in Porto Alegre, Brazil. I participated in many congresses and workshops around the country and specialized in the area of ​​family and children's parties. At this time I founded the company Imagine Love & Photography and what was a project developed in parallel with the career of a civil servant, finally had full-time dedication, after moving to Portugal in 2017. Graduated in Digital Multimedia and with experience in the journalism field, I love being connected to the world in every way and I explore social networks to generate content and promote real networking between people. I believe that life is a journey, not a destination.
