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 […]

Peek-a-Boo - Hirashiki Winter Family Photo

All Smiles with the Hirashiki Family

Happy New Year, everyone! In this first post of the year, we’ll take a look at a winter family photography session with the Hirashiki tribe from back in December. As I write this, the Han River is frozen and the temperature is well below zero. Thankfully for this session, the cold hadn’t truly settled in yet and we had quite a nice day with a high of 9°C. Coupled with the beautiful soft light from an overcast sky, it was […]

Cadwell Family Portraits - Family Walk

Cadwell Family Portraits in Seoul

Today’s family portrait session is another fun post-custody session. This time, we’re joined by the Cadwell Family. Meredith and I had been in touch for a few months when they finally got the call to come and pick up Samuel. It was right at the beginning of winter and right in the middle of the Christmas rush here, but we found a couple of openings that would work and managed to schedule in a session. We met up in a […]

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 […]

Nami Island Family Photo Session with the Lees

Winter has come, and that means more Nami Island sessions! It’s great at all times of year. But for some reason, I get so many inquiries for winter. Today we’ll join the Lee family for a morning family session before the crowds arrive. Nami Island’s beautiful avenues of trees are gorgeous with or without leaves, so the crowds are immense all year long. However, we can avoid the majority of them by avoiding the peak times for tour arrivals. We […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Seoul, Korea - Family Photographer - Grijelva

Grijalva Family – Seoul Family Photographer

Even on a cold day in Seoul, there’s plenty of fun to be had with your family photography session. The palaces still look amazing in winter, despite the leafless trees. With the crisp, clear air, winter light takes on a cool but beautiful tone. If you can brave the cold, there’s no reason not to have a family session in winter. It’s also a time when there are far fewer people in the palaces! Even in the frigid air, young […]
