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 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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Family Photographer Seoul Korea

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 […]

Family Photographer in Seoul - Elyzabeth and Jepsen

Elyzabeth and Jepsen – Family Photography in Seoul

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 […]
