Gyeongbokgung Family Photography Seoul Korea

Family Portraits with the Chens

Judy and Tim got in touch leading up to taking custody of their son, Nathan, hoping to do some family portraits after the big day. We chatted for a while and scheduled our session in for a Sunday morning. Thankfully, the typhoon had passed and it looked like we’d have beautiful skies for our session. When we arrived, it was clear that Nathan was grieving a little and didn’t want anyone but Judy. I kept my distance and we made a […]

Noelle and Theo – Family Photography in Seoul

I first met the two darlings you see below when Deborah and Tam visited to take custody of their youngest, Noelle, back in 2016. When I got the message saying that they would be back to visit foster families and spend some time in Seoul, I quickly made a note in my calendar to keep their dates open until we could lock in a visit time. It’s always a pleasure to catch up with friends and work with families again in […]

George Family Portraits – Changdeokgung, Seoul

Welcome back for another family portrait session in Seoul! Today’s blog is all about the George family and their session from a couple of months back in April. Nature was just starting to wake up and we had a few patches of green to play with along with the gorgeous palace colours. With the slightly cool weather and cloudy sky, we were able to move around a lot and capture quite a bit of the palace’s beauty. Changdeokgung is great […]

Family Portrait Photographer Seoul, Korea - Hudec

A Morning with the Hudec Family

It’s always great to get a recommendation from another family. In this case, the Hudecs had heard about me from my session with the Love family. I had a great session with them last year, so I was excited at the chance to work with some of their friends! My conversation with Elizabeth was short and easy. We knew what we wanted to achieve so it was just a case of picking where and when we would meet. The family […]

Spring Family Photoshoot in Seoul

Black Family Photo Shoot in Yeouido Park

An Air Quality Rating of “hazardous” may not seem like the perfect time for a family photoshoot, but the Black family and I made our way out to Yeouido Park nonetheless. We spent an hour together in the park mixing it up between letting the boys play and getting them where we needed them for the shoot. I first worked with the Black family around two years ago when Gibson was about to turn one. We had a great session […]

Family Portraits in Seoul, Milo Kim

Family Portraits as Milo Turns One!

Milo and his parents were back visiting Korea from France for his first birthday party. Before their family gathering, we decided to make some family portraits to memorialise their visit back to Seoul. These would be of just the immediate family. Being autumn, it was the perfect time to get out into Seoul and enjoy the warm weather for an afternoon. Milo was a happy and active little man with all the energy needed to get some great active pictures with […]

Wedding Photographer in Seoul - Haram and Phuong 전통혼례 스냅

Haram and Phuong’s Traditional Korean Wedding

Korea has a rich wedding tradition that is deeply ingrained in their history and culture. Despite many now choosing to follow a mix of Western and Korean ideals when having their ceremony, many venues still offer an event that draws on Korea’s traditional values and practices. Haram and Phuong chose to celebrate the Korean end of their wedding in this style at Samcheonggak in Seoul. Haram hails of Korean heritage and Phuong of Vietnamese heritage. They are both architects based […]

Sarracino Family Photography - Seoul, Korea

Watching Love Develop with the Sarracino Family

Last year, the Sarracino family visited Seoul to complete the adoption process for their first son, Jaden. During this time, we did two sessions together. First, we spent a couple of hours together to document the process of taking custody. Then, a few short days later, we got together again to have a family portrait session under the autumn leaves. We arrived at the agency to meet Jaden with his foster family for the last time before Jamie and John […]

Dorsey Family Photography in Seoul

Dorsey Family Portraits in Seoul

On a beautiful early summer morning in Seoul, I caught up with the Dorsey family to make some portraits with their boy, Daniel. Andrew and Julie reached out after their first couple of meetings with Daniel and their exact words were “He’s all boy and has lots of energy.” They weren’t kidding! This was a high energy, super-fun session from start to finish. We first met the Dorsey family back in my 2017 Year in Review posts and got a […]

Pre-wedding Photographer in Seoul, Korea - David and Sojeong

David and Sojeong – Pre-wedding Photography in Seoul

In early summer last year, my friends David and Sojeong reached out to me and let me know they were getting married. We scheduled in a pre-wedding photography session before the big day to get some images not only for themselves to keep but to use on the wedding day and as an invitation to their friends and family. Over a cup of coffee, we decided to mix the photos between the gritty back streets of the Euljiro district and […]
