MAMA, GET IN THE PHOTO, WITH YOUR KIDS. FOR YOUR KIDS.
Is it usually you, who takes the photos? Same.
DISPLAYED FAMILY PHOTOS IN THE HOME
GIVE OUR CHILDREN A SENSE OF BELONGING.
THEY FEEL LOVED, TREASURED AND APPRECIATED.
if you had a photographer aka friend, who knows what you like or fear most, organizes your sessions around your needs and puts you in the picture beautifully. All you need to do is, get in touch, have a wonderful time with your family, enjoy your photographs readily printed, framed, photobook-ed. Enjoy. Repeat.
This winter I created a photo book of one of our most memorable trips to Lake Constance (Bodensee) when the children were 4 years old. That is one of my favourite places and it was important for me to show my children this beautiful part of the world. Only when we held the book in our hands and went through it for the first time, we realised that there was not a single photo of me. It made me feel very sad.
Mamas out there, I'd like you to get in the photos more often. Maybe your children or hubby can take some snaps of you every now and then. Just show that you were there too! And, occasionally, ring your trusted photographer and get your family photos taken.
Hurry, before you kids are grown up.
"I wanted photographs that show the connection with my children." Jenny, Christchurch
I love for you to get a balanced mix of some posed and mostly relaxed and authentic photographs. It is important to me to get to know your family before your session, so I can create a loose session plan which suits all your personalities and vibes. I will create opportunities for fun and playful interactions, cuddly moments and beautiful connections between all of you. I direct and guide you guys but also observe and document, ultimately, being able to show you who you are, not only how you look like. It's a blend of documentary and lifestyle photography. And with your session fee comes a framed photograph of your choice. I wish for you to have a beautiful photograph ready to display. It's on me.
Get photographs that are 100% you as a family.
No cheesy smiles.
And if you don't like your photos - I pay you the session fee back.
WHAT JENNY SAYS
"Jeannine photographs our family since our daughter was born. She knows exactly what photos we want.
Jeannine helped us personalising our home with our photos, so we get to enjoy them every day."
