Life was busy for me last couple of months, but isn’t it a good thing?
During this time I’ve met so many gorgeous families and got excited with their style and taste, love and relationships, and huuuge heartiness and beauty. It is such an amazing feeling to admire people, whose family portraits I’m asked to capture.
Today I’d like to share with you photographs of a beautiful Icelandic family, which I met past August. Frida and Brynjar and their loveliest kids – Emiliana, Viktoria and Mikkel – were one of 5 families, taking part in my photography project dedicated to family life in Ørestad. Truly, Ørestadt is a great place to live at. When I’d just moved in, I was fascinated with how close a modern futuristic city and nature could be. In addition to that, Ørestad is very international and there are so many families with kids living there! Well, sometimes just to look around at the neighbourhood is enough to make me happy.
During a pre-session consultation with Frida, it appeared that the family had many favourite places all over Ørestad, but Naturcenter Vestamager was a bit more special for them. Thus, we had decided to meet for a photo shoot there and do that a couple of hours before the sunset to catch the beautiful golden light. Luckily, the weather was just perfect that day, and light was ours! We spent about 2,5 hours together and both me and the family thoroughly enjoyed that time. As Frida said afterwards, before the session she worried a bit that it would be boring (what else do people expect from a photo shoot, right?) but then she got surprised with how much fun we have had!.. I was even tired of smiling close to the photo shoot’s end. We have started photographing at the large “old ship”, then had a picnic, then went to watch sheep and play with balloons. As there were lots of communication and interactions within the family, I’ve got numerous moments to capture. At their viewing session the family told me that I’d captured perfectly who they were, and since this is exactly what I aim for at the every session, I couldn’t be more pleased with the result.
You are very welcome to watch a slideshow, just make sure you view it in HD and with music on, and be aware that you could end up dancing!
If you would like to see more photographs – still and in greater details, I’ve prepared a storytelling selection below.
Did I mention there were many photographs at that photo shoot? Thanks for reaching the end of the post!
Make sure that you have beautiful family portraits done for your own family, and if not just give me a shout, I will be happy to help!
