Emma & Fred Family 08/2009

by Administrator on Sep.08, 2009, under Family, Kids

I met with Emmanuelle a few weeks ago. Emmanuelle and her husband Frederic wanted some yearly pictures of the family. It’s a tradition.

I have to say I felt it was a great opportunity for me, as they are a beautiful family.

They are used to photographers, I gathered. Nevertheless, they wanted to try something different this year. Probably, more on the casual side. Perfect, I was in!

From what I have gathered from our first encounter, I could foresee great pictures of the whole family and, I hoped, unique photographs of their daughters in their own house. They have incredible eyes, a definite “joie de vivre” and they seem to be ok with me hanging there taking photographs.

We decided back then to shoot on the day of the 23rd of August 2009, and we would be working with classical black background to some extent, but we would also spend a lot of time in the parent’s bedroom, and the daughter’s too. The rooms are lovely. I had a few ideas running through my mind already.

Here we are. I just received permission from the parents to publish the photographs. I have to emphasize the pleasure I took during the session. I’m very grateful for the whole family, indeed. We started at 09:00 AM and the girls were immediately excited to play around the lens; the lights and the equipment did not bother them at all. The parents played their parts too, with “brio” I might add. Everyone is to congratulate for their good humor and good patience, kids and grown-ups.

I posted here a part of the photographs, maybe the ones I deemed the more unique of the session. I added a few others on the web site, which I picked among those that maybe touched me the most. It is always difficult when it comes down to a choice… So, make sure to look also on my web site in the :”Kids\Portraits” section.

Dear parents, I would like to conclude by thanking you for the trust you put in me when you decided we would work together. The result is fabulous. I’m honored and surely very proud of the photographs.
