- "To photograph: it is to put on the same line of sight the head, the eye and the heart.”- H. Bresson
What does it mean Documentary Family Photography? It means capturing the essence of who you are, showing your family in the natural way- with all the important moments, all the interactions, the small gestures of love between parents, small smile and big laughs, children doing “messy”, daily routine, getting ready to school, night bath, or grandparents birthdays.
Family Photography and Reportage is a testimony that incorporates us into those memories. It is another perspective as real as the one we experience, which enriches us by seeing ourselves present in those memories that we cannot see, although we do remember what we felt
This complement to remember, freeze and maintain our lives, our moments, our feelings, sincere, spontaneous, from the eyes of someone who observes, is really a gift
Many of our references to happiness, love, action, fun, or grief come from artificial creations of cinema or television but are only recreations
In family documentary photography nothing is a recreation. It is the reality observed from a professional objective that meets our references, gives them a new meaning and transcends our memory
With those photos reinterpret emotions and moments whose significance may have been blurred.
I will capture your family story, in the honest, intimate, natural and beautiful way.
If you are still not sure if this kind of session is for You, please read this article where I explain why family reportage is so important.
During the shooting there will be only one photographer- Me. So you don’t have to worry about too many cameras, o flashes. I’m very discreet and you won’t notice my presence. From You side, You can invite for shooting who You want- brothers, sisters. uncle, cousins. The more people the more interesting the experience is
It’s up to you whether you want to do it over the weekend or during the week. There is no single rule. I’m flexible with the dates and for sure we can find a day that is perfect for both sides
For the half day shooting we can choose a location that you like, or we can do it at home. During the Day in Life shoot, I follow your routine. So what you do, I do the same. You just do your normal day life.
I do not have a single pattern according to which I work. I approach each family individually. Let me get to know you, and I will make sure that your family session is shown the way you dreamed it – honestly and naturally, showing the love of your most important ones.
The title of the website says “family photographer Barcelona” which means that I am a photographer in Barcelona, but I work all over Spain, so if you happen to be from the other end of Spain or other country, nothing is lost. It is enough that you want your family life to be immortalized in a special way in phenomenal shots that will bring back extraordinary memories even after many years.
