How special is a trip to a foreign land with your mother? Jepsen is a lucky little man, that’s for sure. Elyzabeth and he visited Seoul together last November and we set out for a family photography session together during their visit.
As they were visiting during autumn, we decided to make the most of something they don’t get back home, autumn leaves. We booked on a morning session that would include both the leaves and some Korean architecture and spent a little over an hour together making portraits of their loving relationship. Elyzabeth clearly gives her all to Jepsen and he just loves playing with his mum as well. They tossed leaves at each other, shared their collection of pine cones, and watched the ants crawl along the pavement together. This is the biggest joy in family photography – watching the love between family members.
We mixed the session between my direction and Jepsen’s desire to explore and collect pine cones, which resulted in a collection that had a great mix of candid moments and moments that I had drawn out. Elyzabeth’s sister also joined us that day and Jepsen loved the opportunity to have a swing with his aunt as well. Jepsen even mistook the autumn leaves for snow and made himself a leaf-snow-angel, coming up with a face covered in leaves and a grin from ear to ear.
Thanks for joining me on this adventure with Elyzabeth and Jepsen. Please get in touch to enquire about your own family photography session in Seoul or anywhere in Korea.
