A Session with the Legg Family

This year has been a test for many people in many ways. The unprecedented level of restrictions we’ve had to put on our day-to-day lives to stay safe has required a lot of adjustment for many of us. As someone who photographs families for a living, this has certainly been an interesting year. Once the travel restrictions kicked in and it began to look like COVID-19 was here to stay, I had expected to be sitting tight for a few […]

Adoption Family Photography in Seoul - Osbeck

Post-Custody Photos with the Osbeck Family

Followers of this blog will know that I do a lot of work with the adoptive community here in Korea. Over the years, I’ve photographed approximately 300 families and I get a lot of questions about how these sessions go. In this post we’ll join the Osbeck family for their post-custody photos in Seoul. Many adoptive families come to me to make some images on one of their first few days as a forever family but it can be tough […]

Leaving Changdeokgung

Saunders First Meeting and Post-Custody Family Photos

Lisa reached out to me in early January to enquire about having their first meeting with their son photographed. Meeting Bokyeom for the first time was an important moment for her and Ben and having photographs of their moments together would be a great way not only for them to remember it but also to explain this life event to Bokyeom in years to come. With the responsibility squarely on me to capture all of these first moments together, I […]

Hanbok Photoshoot with Miles Family in Changdeokgung

Hanbok Photoshoot with the Miles Family

Earlier this year, the Miles family reached out to set up a hanbok photoshoot while they were visiting Seoul. With this fun-loving family and some of the best weather we’ve had all year, this was a fantastic day out with some fellow Aussies! We met up on a beautifully warm May morning at Changdeokgung here in Seoul, which we’d picked among the palaces of Seoul for its architecture and nature. The sky was blue and the light was crisp. I […]

Kruger Family Photos at Seoul's Changdeokgung

Autumn Family Portraits with the Krugers

Korea’s autumn is absolutely stunning. Starting from the north, the country gradually changes from the verdant hues of summer to a vibrant mix of brown, red, and yellow. This time of year is so beautiful, in fact, that tour companies have buses that follow the progression of the change down the peninsula. They stop in at all the national parks for visitors to take in the beauty. The colours don’t last too long in Seoul, but if you time it […]

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 […]

Sisters lying in grass together - Seoul Family Photographer

Young Family Portrait Photography at World Cup Park, Seoul

Many of the family portrait sessions I do here are centred around the idea of something traditionally Korean. We’re often trying to give the sense that we’re in Korea and Seoul’s palaces work wonderfully for that. But where do you go if you’re looking for something a bit simpler where the kids can run around and the pictures are just your family in a beautiful place? A great stop for both spring and autumn is the World Cup Park area […]

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 […]

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 […]
