Ha Hanbok Family Photo at Gyeongbokgung

Hanbok Photos at Gyeongbokgung with the Ha Family

Our winter this year has been relatively mild. Despite a couple of cold snaps and a lot more snow than usual, temperatures have been well above freezing most days. December was exceptionally warm and, for a change, conducive to family photography, especially with the double layers that choosing hanbok photos provides. For this session, we headed to the, relatively, empty Gyeongbokgung and had a session to celebrate the time the Ha family had spent in Korea. Daisy and her family […]

Ott Family Photography – A Morning in Gyeongbokgung

Kayla and Justin reached out as they were getting ready to fly and take custody of Silas, their number four. Yes, you read that right! Silas was going home to three more siblings!

Welcome to the fourth, and final, section of my 2021 Year in Review series.

Year in Review Part 3 – 2021

Welcome to the third installment of my annual Year in Review series for 2021. This will be the thinnest selection of photographs from the year.

If you haven’t already, please do spend some time with parts one and two […]

Year in Review Part 1 – 2021

Welcome back to my annual Year in Review series of blogs. This is a great place to get an overview of all the different work that I do and see a little of Korea in the process. I have been doing these now for several years and previous editions can be seen here. Typically, the first few months of the year are quiet for us as the weather is still cold. Usually, there are a few photoshoots here and there, […]

Autumn Family Photos in Seoul Forest - Chien Sunrise Session

An Autumn Family Photo Shoot with the Chiens

Today’s session is a two-part autumn session I had with the Chien family last year. We had some beautiful light for this early morning family shoot and an image from this set ended up making its way into my ten favourite images from last year. This shoot is very representative of how autumn typically is here, so I hope it will be helpful for those considering an autumn family photo shoot. Jenny reached out to me when the leaves were […]

Year in Review 2020 Part 1 – Seoul Family, Event, Proposal, and Travel Photographer

This year, as I’m sure it did for many of you, started out in the usual way. For us, that means the usual rush of post-holiday enquires flowing in the door and a lot of sessions where I work hard to look warm so my clients can feel a bit of extra warmth while they enjoy the Korean winter. January – Proposal, Adoption, and Event Photography My first session of the year was a perfect example of a winter photoshoot […]
