Being together, being a family – a relaxed family photography session in Copenhagen

A cosy family summer afternoon, what can be better than that?  Do you remember those, which you had enjoyed as a child at your parents or grandparents home?..
With Kristine and Jesper and their 3 lovely girls we agreed on having a natural and relaxed family photography session at one of those warm, beautiful Sunday afternoons last summer. We decided to meet at the family’s apartment in Ørestad, start the photo shoot there and continue it at the park nearby (Byparken).  As Kristine texted after the session: “The set up was perfect, because it really was a good, yet normal day”.
Needless to say, how eagerly I was looking forward to this photography session – as I have probably mentioned, it’s always an honour and a great pleasure to see the family from inside and capture those precious fleeting moments for them to remember, but there was something else in this shoot. Family members’ beauty and a taste for beauty, their sense of style, intelligence, coupled with kind and open hearts and harmonious connections within the family  – what a great promise it was! Moreover, it’s not an every day, I have to admit, when I’m invited to photograph a family of two architects, one of whom is a PhD student, at their apartment with the interior they have nearly built themselves!..

We have spent several hours together, children laughed and played, danced and read, had their nap and lunch, drew, got dirty and clean again, in other words, did everything what they would normally do during a day. There was a great number of authentic, real and beautiful moments for me to capture and for the family  to preserve and cherish  afterwards. “…We can’t let this huge treasure slip out of our hands, because that’s what it is  :), we have decided to go for all the high res images”. What a rewarding note for a photographer, isn’t it?

I have created a little movie for this family photography session as well using a selection of photographs from it’s first, at home, part. You can find it later at the post. Just don’t forget to have a sound and HD on!

And here you can see some of the photos from the session’s second part – setting out and heading to the park.
