Korea Family Photos - Liu

Liu Family Photos – Rocks, Running, and Smiles

When it comes to post-custody family photos, there is one rule we follow: what the child says goes. If they’re tired, we take things slow. If they want to play, we play for a while. There’s nothing quite like the paths of Changdeokgung for little boys to play in. There are open spaces, ramps that go up and down through gates, and, of course, pebbles and rocks everywhere. At this session, we certainly got our fair share of running through […]

Year in Review Part 2 – 2021

Welcome back to my 2021 Year in Review series. If you missed last week’s post, you can find that here. This week, I’ll be taking you through the slowly warming months of April, May, and June. Over this quarter, work slowly started to trickle back in and I was able to be part of some wonderful projects and life moments. Let’s jump right in.   April – Cycling, Event, Pre-Wedding, and Family Photography The first order of business as the […]

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, […]

Beautiful but Freezing – Venneman Family Photoshoot

It seems like forever since I worked with the Venneman family. But with summer winding down and the promise of cooler temperatures on the horizon, I remembered our gorgeous December family photoshoot. This was a whirlwind session to keep all three children on our side as the temperatures approached zero. Michelle and Trevor had reached out earlier in the year and we’d talked about making family pictures as their adoption was finalised. Unfortunately, by the time they had a custody […]

Maliha Loved to Jump

Jennifer, Said, and Maliha’s First Family Photos

In this, the strangest of years, I’m constantly amazed by the dedication of families in completing their adoption processes. Jennifer and Said are no exception to that rule. Braving the quarantine procedure (and the quarantine hotel lottery), they made their way to Seoul in order to meet and take custody of their daughter, Maliha. We got together during this time to make some family photos for them before they went home. As is often the case when we move into […]

Winter Family Photos with the DeVitos

Winter isn’t usually the biggest time for family photos here in Seoul because it’s so cold. However, this year, I’ve worked with several families as the weather cooled and made the best of our gorgeous winter light. This afternoon with the DeVito family was no exception. Despite the warmth of their hometown and the cold of Seoul, Laurie, Robert, Sophia, and their latest addition to the family, Aiden, decided to brave the cool weather with me and make some images […]

Ataalla Family - Family Photography in Seoul Forest - Child Running with Balloon

Ataalla Family Photography at Seoul Forest

I don’t often get family photography sessions during the Chuseok time as that’s when Korea simply shuts its doors (except for the shopping districts, of course) and says “We’re done for a few days.” Locals take some coveted days off, expats head home for a while, and tourism is down a little because everything is closed. China, however, outdoes this by having an even longer mid-Autumn Festival that shuts the entire country down as well. This year, the Ataalla family […]

Nami Island Family Snow

Nami Island Family Photography

The heat of Seoul’s summer still grips us and I find myself longing for cooler weather. We’ve had weeks and weeks of soaring temperatures and unbearable humidity. As I was browsing my collection looking for some work to post, I came across this wonderful Nami Island family photography session from last winter. When Faith contacted me, she was looking to take her family out somewhere with snow for some family portraits while they were in Korea. Initially, I’m always a […]

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 […]
