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.
