Elbracht Family Portraits at Changdeokgung

On a beautiful April day, I set out with the Elbracht family for the last time to make some family portraits for them before they left Seoul for good. It was a bittersweet day as I’d got to know them quite well over their years here. It’s always a pleasure to work with Max, Oskar, and Greta. As we’ve got to know each other, the sessions now are more like catching up and making a few images together. The kids […]

Changdeokgung with the Mangahas Family

It’s winter time again here in Seoul, and that means chilly temperatures and beautiful light. The Mangahas family and I got together for a winter family photography session just after they took custody of their daughter, Ren. Ren was a little nervous around new people. Although she’d got used to being around her family, she was wary of me in the beginning. For the first ten minutes of our session, I got the I’m-not-quite-sure-about-you look from Ren. I made a […]

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 […]

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 […]

Stelzer Hanbok Family Photography Session – Seoul, Korea

The Stelzer family reached out just a couple of weeks before autumn was about to get into full swing. They were looking to have a hanbok family photo session and wanted to incorporate Korea’s traditional architecture and some of the autumn leaves. Autumn was a little unpredictable this year, but we got lucky with some beautiful colours and a cloudy day to accentuate them. Starting under the autumn canopy, we spent some time playing in the leaves and giving Alexander […]

Armstrong Family Photography in Seoul, Korea

When Janelle reached out to me, I was waiting for a train from Itanagar to Guwahati in India at the end of a trip for my Tattoos of Asia project. It was an unplanned early exit, as we found out that rebel groups would be closing the roads out of Arunachal Pradesh and if we wanted to leave we should do it now. So, I was quite excited to get some good news in my inbox as I was sitting […]

Barch Family Photography in Seoul

This session contains everything that makes family photography such a wonderful job. Love, fun, and a little silliness to top it all off. I had a great time out with the Barch family during their visit to Seoul. Jude was full of smiles and wouldn’t let us stop exploring. We started the session by walking over to the palace from their apartment in the beautiful spring weather. A few jumps over the gutter and a run or two later, we […]

Tobin’s Adoption – Family Day

Here is one final morning with Tobin and his family to complete the first chapter in the story of this new family. As we saw last time, Knox and Tobin could not have been happier to meet each other at Tobin’s adoption takeover. They hugged, they blew bubbles, and they snuggled on the couch together. All that in between Tobin’s running, by far his favourite thing to do. It was around 10:30am when we met up to get started. Knox […]
