Photographing families in their natural environment is own of my favorite genres. Today I want to share a few images from a family reportage in Amsterdam.
When you live in a picturesque environment, whether it is a big city or a small village, it is often an obvious decision to hold a family photo session around that place filled with daily memories. The heart of Amsterdam is a perfect example of such location. It has its own charm and character, and it’s a good idea to incorporate these streets, bridges, and playgrounds in the pictures. Years later it will give the children a warm feeling to see these places back in the photos, much like the details of their home. Everyday activities where everybody can be themselves are great to show the band between the parents and the children, and to highlight one’s characters.
I have photographed this beautiful family before and each time it is special to see the family – and the children – grow. It is wonderful to see the children develop and to observe how gentle the elder ones are to the younger.
We have spent a lovely morning together walking in the sunshine through the streets of Amsterdam. When it started to rain we took a little break indoors and then went out to the playground. The result is a whole photo story full of love and fun, sparkling eyes and precious little moments.
