Family Portrait

Creating family memories

 After many years of staging beauty in different shoots, I have the urge to create more honest images. Images with meaning to someone, somewhere, an especially someday. Observing a family and allowing  everything to unfold, not only makes your heart full, but also reminds you that beautiful imagery means taking your time to see with empathy and passivity. Although I am a photographer, I am spending more time observing my subject, understanding the light and colour I see rather than giving instructions or editing images. In fact, I reduced the amount of photographs I take to a minimum asking myself each time I press the button: Is this meaningful? Is this relevant? Is this beautiful. Almost 100% are keepers. This feels right...  I am thanking Michelle, who is an extremely talented photographer herself, having me in their home and allowing me to photograph her family.

Beach Elopement Inspiration

Oceanside elopement on the Californian Lost Cost

 The sea allows us a moment to escape. To feel free from the burdens that we carry. A lightness comes over us and we are taken to a place and time where our souls can be free. A place where our hearts open to love and life's infinite possibilities. Today's beautiful Beach Wedding editorial, captured by  Madalina Sheldon , has this sentiment perfectly captured. Full of light and softness, this shoot inspires both our minds and our hearts!  Joywed    "This shoot was all about the textures, tones and contrast of the capricious summers of California's Lost Coast. I wanted to put together a scene that is full of movement and light, adorned with handmade details and florals foraged from bushes and dry plants that grow right around the beach where we shot". A. Ambrosini
