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 reportage 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.

I'm MaFe, this is my short-name to Maria Fernanda. I'm a passionate documentary photographer celebrating people's lives in the places I have been. I started doing photojournalistic reportage in Miami 13 years ago. I have trained with many top photojournalists from the USA, and documented weddings as well as family and teens for 5 years in Panama. Established in Switzerland now for 9 years I have also documented weddings, families and business. As I became a mother of 2 small boys (5 and 7 years) I also document my very own family the same way I do for others. Now I want to meet you and celebrate with you from very honest and beautiful perspective images that will make you embrace your everyday life, documenting your routines and what seems like a normal day to you. Because it is in those tiny but important moments that we dedicate to our job, our family that builds a connection between you and the ones who surround your story and as time passes they will become unforgettable memories that bring us back to who we are, to our own essence.
My personal photographic heritage is quite poor and I often regret it, all those moments that I let fall through time ... In the continuity of my work for the couples in the wedding universe, I like to capture the moments of life, the real life. This motivates my professional goals, follow you on a chosen moment in order to propose images that will allow you to constitute a precious family patrimony. Your family is beautiful, see you soon.
I am a documentary wedding and family photographer who lives in Istanbul and Izmir but can shoot anywhere in the world. I guess that having the flexibility of traveling also stems from the fact that; I am a travel and documentary photographer. I have worked in photography committee of travel, geography and culture magazine Atlas which is published in Turkey and Europe for a long time and I have photographed and written my themes. Apart from that, I also worked for a while as a photo editor for Skylife magazine. I took photos for many magazines and newspapers. I did editorial shootings for numerous magazines and newspapers. I think these different fields that I came to grips with in past enabled me to look at wedding and family photography from different angles.
My approach to photography is simple and honest. Storytelling is at the heart of what I do. My purpose is to tell your unique story in a way that is genuine, natural, and meaningful. I balance the realness of documentary family photography with the refined look of film. This results in an image collection that is filled with joy and connection, yet with gorgeous skin tones and a timeless aesthetic. I am based in Toulouse, and I am available for family and baby sessions throughout France, Europe and UK.

Charlène, 38 years old… married and mother of 2 teenage boys and 1 little girl! I like to spend my Sundays with the family around board games or a common activity in nature. I like to travel in backpack mode, and openness, tolerance and respect are important qualities for me. I am a feminist and vegetarian, close to nature and animals (we have 2 cats and a dog). We try to be zero waste as much as possible with the family and to be green in our daily life in the countryside. I am sensitive to different causes and I support certain associations for the protection of nature and the oceans such as sea shepherd. I love Do It Yourself and artistic activities, of course, photography is one of them. Take pictures of my children, capture that particular little pout that makes me crack, My grandfather was an amateur photographer, he was the one who filled our family albums with cousins every vacation with them. And surely he who transmitted this passion to me! Every vacation I took (and still enjoy!) Leafing through our albums he was preparing and discovering old family photos in old boxes! Without him, we would have few photos. Unfortunately, I have little of me with my parents or my sister and it is a huge regret. The few photos I have are very valuable. Portraits are good, but family life with our parents on them and being able to remember them, our relationships, what we were doing together at the time is invaluable. So it was only natural that I turned to lifestyle photography for birth and family, for these memories… for your children! I can't wait to learn more about you and create great memories for you !!
I started taking photos for the birth of my first daughter. Then I liked it so much that I perfected myself, completely self-taught at the start. Until 2021 I was in double activity, my job was an electronics technician, I repaired all types of devices, in particular smartphones. Today I'm 100% in the photo and I really love it! What a pleasure to immortalize wonderful memories. My approach is above all based on discretion. In order to capture on the spot each of your emotions and those of your loved ones. My style is above all based on the natural and on capturing the moments as they really happened. Live, Share, Laugh, Like & Transmit!
