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 together 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.
For maternity sessions, I'll come at yours and we usually start the session with a tea, talking about you, the way you feel and the things that you love. Sometimes I help choosing the clothes and then I guide you to take natural poses that make you feel comfortable and beautiful.
