HOW DOES A FAMILY PHOTO SHOOT PROCEED?

During a family photo shoot, my main goal is to capture emotions and connection. During my family photo shoots, I let mom and dad play with the kids and ask them to just enjoy their time together. So the children are always satisfied, they participate and don't even notice that I'm there! And this is exactly how natural pictures are created; pictures of an unconditional love between parents and children; memories of the good times together.

I always take enough time for family photo shoots, because it is very important to me that all family members feel very comfortable. Because under time pressure no beautiful pictures are created.

WHAT IF THE CHILDREN DO NOT WANT TO PARTICIPATE?

Many parents are very nervous before the shoot and are worried that the children will not participate or that they will not laugh / smile enough. With me you don't have to pose and you don't have to look at the camera, smile and say "Cheese" all at the same time. With me you can just be the way you are, the way you want to be at this moment. You can even be sad or angry, because these too are emotions and dreamlike images also arise from these emotions. Children and parents play together and then smiles are automatic and even the most beautiful smiles are created because they are natural and not forced.

 

I am mother of two small children and have captured memories of the most difficult children (according to the parents), make them laugh; often parents tell me that they never thought that the children would participate so well and that the mood was so relaxed that everyone felt very comfortable.

WHERE DOES A FAMILY PHOTO SHOOT TAKE PLACE?

In my opinion, the most beautiful and natural pictures are created outdoors, because outdoors you have more space with children to play, discover, be. We can choose the location together (I know many beautiful locations) or I can come to your desired location.

 

WHAT HAPPENS IF IT RAINS?

For outdoor shootings we will select and reserve at least 2-3 dates together, so we are sure that we will have nice weather on at least one date. We will then be in touch shortly before the first date and decide.

WHAT HAPPENS IF THE SUN DOES NOT SHINE?

The sun does not have to shine, on the contrary. The most beautiful pictures are created when it is cloudy, when it is foggy or just before the sun goes down. The light is most beautiful in these situations. If the sun shines too strongly, everyone is disturbed by its light and strabge light / shadow effects appear on the faces. For this reason, on very sunny days I shoot either very early in the morning or just before sunset (these times are of course different depending on the season).

WHAT SHOULD WE WEAR?

WHO IS PHOTOGRAPHED?

During the shoot I take pictures of the whole family, children only with mom, only with dad, alone etc. I will capture many wonderful moments of your family life.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE UNTIL THE PICTURES ARE READY? 

Mostly 1 week. You will get 1-2 edited pictures as a preview on the day of the shoot. If you need the pictures faster, please report this immediately after the shoot so that I can fulfill your wish.
