Artistic family session in the countryside Documentary family photographer Coralie Monnet Photographer 42

Why I photograph families

The way your son kisses her sister, the wild dances in the kitchen, the tomato sauce all over your daughter's hair when she eats pizza, how daddy feels after a big hug, the way you tell stories during bedtime, how painful for you it was to see your little one with blood on his knees, the long walk during summer before dinner, the way your dog was trying to lick your face, the joy of having every member of your family sat around you on the grass and every moments that you’ll wanna remember.

This is why I photograph family stories - because I want your family photos to reflect who you really are.

FAQ
Frequently Asked Questions

Where should we do the session?

I do photograph both in home sessions and outdoor sessions.

I really really love capturing your life in your house. In home, your kids are comfortable in an environment they love. If you want meaningful and intimate photos, it's the kind of session you should choose. Your home is the heart of who you are, where your memories are as a family and it's a beautiful way to capture your story.

Outdoor sessions are also really cool. I love photographing people in nature, surrounded by beautiful landscapes but also in the city and its strong geometrical shapes. Being outside give people a feeling of freedom that I really enjoy capturing.

The most important is to choose the place that reflects you the most, so let’s talk and work together on making the session unique for you!

What happens during a session?

When I arrive at your place, I always take the time to make friends with your kids because it's really important that I build a connection with them.
Then I'll photograph you doing something you like doing in a documentary style, it will make all of you more comfortable and you'll get used to me and my camera. I love letting the kids playing and exploring first and then we can do some more directed photos.

But don't worry, I won’t ask you to stay still and look at the camera smiling, it's not what I do. I prefer when you don't look at me and look at each other instead and enjoy a moment all together. I will sometimes direct you to get beautiful images but they will still be natural and spontaneous.
I want to capture how it feels, the atmosphere, the details, and the different relationships, because it's all that matter.

What happens once our session is done?

I will send you your photos within 4 weeks. They will be delivered via an online private gallery from where you will be able to download all the photos and order prints, framed photos and albums.

I want you to look at your photos everyday (and not through a screen) so I really encourage you to get some prints or an album. These are your memories and I want you enjoy your photos as much as you can, with yours kids, your family and your friends.

How do I book a session with you? Can I book it online?

If you already know which session you'd like, you can book it online here: https://likedreamersdophotography.bigcartel.com

But if you need more help, you can send me an email via the contact form, and we can choose together which session would be best for you.

Once you've paid your session, we will book a date that works for both of us and I will send you a link to sign a contract to block the date.

Super easy. :)

Where are you based? Do you travel to photograph families?

I'm currently living in Manchester, Uk. And yes, I love travelling to photograph families in their own environment.

I love discovering where people live and looking at a new place with child eyes. I find it very inspiring.

What if it rains or we are ill? Can we postpone?

If your session is taking place outside, we can decide to reschedule it if the weather is really that awful, but some of my favourite session ever have been in rain/snow storms!
Wind is what I prefer during a shoot because it makes incredible movement in the pictures.

In case one of us is ill, yes then, we will have to reschedule the session in the following weeks.
