One of the things that I love about photography is that I get to experience and capture human emotions at their best. Naturally, family photography lets me do that in the best possible way. Since everyone is in their comfort zone with mostly loved ones around, they don’t pay as much attention to the photographer around them.
Living in Netherlands, I love going for family photography in Amsterdam. The city has a vibe that reflects on people immediately, and more so when you are with your family. Capturing a group or a family’s varied emotions and reactions, while walking around in the city, is one of my top 10 things to do in life.
Last year, I got an assignment for family photography in Amsterdam. I was very happy about the job, but it became something special when I learnt of the event. The entire Laurent family had come to Amsterdam in the cold of the winter, from Switzerland, to celebrate their mother’s birthday. The entire family got out in the streets, in the freezing cold to capture the beautiful moments, and that made the entire interaction beautiful.
Here are some of my favourite shots from the session.
