Today I am thrilled to share an amazing family reportage I had in Rotterdam at the end of the last August. The summer passed by, but these photos can brighten up any gray day.
Tuğçe is a beautiful expat business lady from Turkey working in Rotterdam. She contacted me to plan a family photo session for this summer. The family lives in the center of Rotterdam, has an active lifestyle and enjoys outdoor activities, so we decided to choose the park at the Euromast as our location. This park is one of my favorite places in Rotterdam to photograph extended families and families with several children. The beautiful green lawns here allow a lot of space to move and play around!
Although the weather was rather unstable this summer, the morning of our photo shoot was warm and sunny and perfectly summery. Our photo session was a whirlwind of fun and positive emotion at every minute, so full of love, warmth, energy and allure. I was happy to capture everybody both individually concentrating on one’s personality and also together showing emotion, connection and precious moments of being together. Just take a look at Kerem and Selin with their curly little sister Deniz. Or take the photos of Deniz having fun with her parents: the moments say so much about the special band of a little girl with her mother and father. And look at romantic and alluring photos of Tuğçe and Mustafa: I am always happy to capture a couple just together when the kids allow a minute for it (and mostly it is only a minute indeed!). All these photos grasp the family’s spirit and tell a story.
Our reportage yielded wall portraits, gift photos to share the love with the family and a thick photo book to go through this wonderful day again at any time, also over years and decennia to come.
Thank you for this fantastic photo session, dear Tuğçe, Mustafa, Kerem, Selin and Deniz!
