Seoul Proposal Photos

Daniel Proposes to Shermaine at Gyeongbokgung

My discussion with Daniel started several months in advance of his proposal, which is a great time to start! We had plenty of time to toss ideas back and forth as well as work out the perfect date on his trip around other shoots I already had booked. As the discussion progressed, we went back and forth between locations such as Jeju Island, Seoul Forest Park, and Olympic Park. Eventually, Daniel settled on Gyeongbokgung to combine palace architecture with some […]

Fun with the Perssons – Family Photo Shoot in Seoul

In this energy-filled family photo shoot, we’ll take a journey with the Perssons as they took custody of their youngest son, Edvin. We’ll talk about the ups and downs and how we reached the wonderful place we did by the end of this shoot. Post-custody sessions are always somewhat up in the air and very much a take-things-as-they-come affair. Until we actually meet, there’s no telling how the little ones will be and this shoot was such a perfect example […]

Snow and Autumn Leaves - Seoul Family Photographer

2023 Year in Review – Part 4

Welcome to the final post in my 2023 Year in Review series. This post covers the months of October, November, and December. These are usually our most predictable in terms of weather but this year things got thrown out of order a little. Our usually short-lived autumn colours came in patches all throughout the final 4 months of the year. Normally, they come and go in the last week of October and the first week of November. The normally bitterly […]

2023 Year in Review – Part 2

Welcome back to part 2 of this year’s Year in Review post series. As the weather warmed up, this year really took flight and it was one of the busiest quarters we’ve ever had. I hope you’ll enjoy a peek into some of the sessions from that time.   April – Family, Couple, Proposal, Editorial, eCommerce and Event Photography To kick off April, I had a session with the Brady family in the VERY early blooming cherry and plum blossoms.

Spring Family Photography, Seoul Korea

2023 Year in Review – Part 1

Welcome one and all to my 2023 Year in Review. Carrying on the tradition of previous years, this will be a look at many of my activities as a photographer in Korea this year. In this first quarter, we started slowly as we always do. But, as the world started to defrost, the work began! I hope you’ll enjoy the mix of families, couples, events, and even travel photography in this first quarter.   January – Family, Couple, eCommerce, and […]

Summer Family Portraits with the Olsens

The monsoon is here. I’m sitting at my computer now listening to the rain beating on my roof. There is a stack of towels next to the door waiting in case our downpipes can’t handle the volume and we get a little overflow into the hall outside the house. Fingers crossed that doesn’t happen! What this situation tells me is that summer is in full swing and it’s about to get really hot here. We don’t do too many family […]

2022 Year in Review – Part 3

Please do check out parts one and two if you haven’t already! July – Proposal, Family, and Editorial Photography July started out with a quick trip down to Jeju for Lai Sheng’s proposal to Brenda. We got a beautiful, but extremely hot and humid day for it. The full story of that one […]

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 […]

Anderson Family Photos – A Journey Together

Today’s story will be a little bit different. It has been five years in the making; a journey of laughter and tears that has spanned three adoptions and countless hours together getting to know each other. We’ve shared the ups and downs of the building of the Anderson family and I have been allowed into the most private times of their lives to make images for the family to remember these moments by. Throughout this time, we’ve formed a friendship […]

Feruglio Family Journey in Pictures

The Feruglio family reached out to me in early 2018 to let me know that they were to visit Korea for the adoption of their son, Jeong. Lisa was enquiring about something that used to be more common than it is now and I was really excited. We would document their first meeting, custody, and have a family session together after custody. Several months later, I got an email saying that the Feruglios had received their travel dates and asking […]
