Character and Color: Rotterdam Child Reportage

Little Julian was getting four years old and about to join school. His mother Simone thought it was a great moment for a special photo session to capture the boy at this precious age.

Simone also has a feeling for interior design and wished to re-decorate their home with unique and personal wall art pieces. She was looking for artistic child portraits: refined, yet natural, reflecting the child’s character. And Julian has a bright personality, indeed! Looking like a cherub with his golden locks, he is always in for some boyish adventures, so we thought an outdoor photo session would be perfect for him.

Classic and vintage-like portrait of a curly lacking child

From Julian’s home in Rotterdam Kralingen we took a walk to the picturesque Arboretum Trompenburg park. It was a lovely morning and it felt almost like summer. Julian run around and played with his parents in the green alleys. The result is a reportage full of beautiful moments, with a range of emotions and styles: classic black and white, colourful and vivid, dreamy and nostalgic.

Here are some emotional portraits of Julian in color and black in white that I’d like to share with you.
