WHAT'S YOUR PHOTOGRAPHY STYLE?
I love perfectly imperfect images with people being themselves, radiating joy and connecting to each other. A successful photoshoot for me is when I manage to capture a genuine laugh, an eye-contact transmitting infinite love, and a hug full of emotions. They also call it lifestyle photography.
WHAT'S THE BEST DAY AND TIME TO BOOK A PHOTO SHOOT?
Regarding the day, the most important thing is that you make sure that the photo-shoot is the event of the day for the whole family and no one is in a hurry. We can make an appointment during the week or on the weekend. The best time is when your kids are usually in the best mood which usually is in the morning or after a nap. Make sure you guys have enough time to get ready calmly. If possible, check at what time you have the best natural light coming into the room where you want the photo-shoot to take place. We don’t want to have any direct sun in the room, just enough light.
HOW LONG DOES THE PHOTO SHOOT LAST?
The session can take from one to two hours. I’m happy to take as much time as we need but the faster the better for the children. They usually start shy, then get excited, later they become hyper and finally they don’t want to see the camera anymore. I will do my best to be as efficient as possible!
CAN YOU KEEP THE IMAGES OF THE PHOTOSHOOT PRIVATE?
Of course. I will only share images of your family in my website and social media channels with your permission.
WHAT SHOULD WE WEAR FOR THE PHOTO SHOOT?
The idea is that you guys can be yourselves so wear whatever makes you and your family members feel comfortable. I personally like seeing some harmony with the colors everyone is wearing. You don’t necessarily need to have all the same color or matching outfits but rather complement each other. Textures, patterns, layers and accessories can also add some visual interest to your images. I do recommend you to avoid logos, texts or neon colors.
WHAT SHOULD WE PREPARE FOR A HOME PHOTO SHOOT?
I appreciate when families send me some pictures in advanced of their living room or other spaces where they would like to have the photo-shoot (don’t forget to include the window in the picture). In this way I can start thinking about some ideas and check where natural light would be coming from. If you like, you could buy some flowers, that’s always a nice touch. Other than that you don’t need to prepare anything else. Please don’t worry about the mess ;)
HOW SHOULD WE POSE IN FRONT OF THE CAMERA?
I will direct you during the photo-shoot to help everyone find a comfortable place and position. Then all you need to do is interact with each other and forget about me and the camera. In other words, all you need to do is relax and have fun together! Leave the rest in my hands!
