“Families used in advertising are not real, thank goodness, real families are much more interesting with all of their unique imperfections”
Families that come to me are looking for something authentic, not glossy or posed. They appreciate the chaos of their daily lives and want to leave to their children a tangible testimony of their personal family narrative.
The family I work with know how to view life with irony and at the same time capture for the future that immense sense of everyday love and tenderness that accompanies the life of being a parent.
They value the benefits of a professional photo shoot where they can feel relaxed and natural in front of the camera avoiding the formality of the posed and static studio portrait.
My Family Shoot revisits those super 8 cine films of our childhood, that when watched together pack an emotional punch and conjure up all the emotions of the past, of what it means to be a family, an almost unedited snapshot of feelings.
What to expect during your shoot?
The Family shoot, or family reportage requires no preparation and can take place in your house or in a suitable outside location.
You open your doors to me for 2-3 hours and you will quickly forget I am even there. I usually provide 40-60 shots for you to choose from. Photographs include the whole family together, individual shots of the children and spontaneous photographs of play, cuddles, house work and relax that are typical of your everyday life.
When should you book your shoot?
2-3 weeks notice is usually enough to plan a chat to get to know each other either on the phone or in person and to agree a date and location.
How much does it cost?
650 euro with a credit of 250 euro towards final prints.
