FAMILY & CHILDREN

PORTRAIT & LIFESTYLE PHOTOGRAPHER IN RENNES

An experience to create images that become treasures over time.

A great opportunity to get together and share a unique moment to cherish what unites you, images that reflect the complicity in the family 
to celebrate an important family event, or to create memories to pass to your children, or your children to come. 
These images become over time treasures. They are not just photos to look at, they reflect your complicity,  the laughs, the love. Emotions that are felt again each time you look at those memories.
It is an experience that let us stop the time. Moments in life come and go and we all grow and change fast, we all do. Family shootings are not just for babies, are also for teens, adults, grandpas and grandmas. 
A family photo session is an opportunity to take the time to freeze your loved ones and create the memory entry in the visual story of your family.
Large-family sessions are also an opportunity to get all of you together: grandparents, parents, children, grandchildren, brothers, sisters, uncles, aunts … The more the merrier, the more we laugh! Memories for all generations!
Wether you are a rock’n roll family, a more zen, a classic, a modern family, it will be a pleasure to spend a moment together to create a memory of the bond that unites you.

PREPARATION OF THE SESSION

Before the shooting, we talk via mail / telephone , and go together through the shooting, the locations, and the style as well as any special wish or specific information you may want me to know.

The choice of clothes is important, It is usually best to avoid extremely extravagant patterns and over saturated colours or neon options to not make the clothing compite on attention with the scene.

IN WHICH LOCATIONS TO DO THE FAMILY / CHILDREN SESSIONS IN RENNES?

Outdoors is my absolute favourite workstation for photography sessions. and in Rennes we are lucky to count with an extraordinarily photogenic town, specially the old town.
Its urban scape is the perfect scenario to give to the photos the cinematic aesthetic and atmosphere I look for in every image.
  Rennes is also the perfect place to do multiple of different session approaches from elegant and sophisticated with its monumental buildings, to casual and more lifestyle with its
cool colourful streets. 
However there are plenty other locations more modern such as Beauregard area specific spots such as old factories not in use full of murals and graffiti offering as well awesome aesthetics. 

My other favourite option to fo is the country side, go to get lost in a beautiful forest, in green fields, or by the water. I do not like to set limits and if you have any specific  location you wished for the session, please, do not be shy and let me know!

HOW ARE THE FAMILY / CHILDREN SESSIONS DEVELOPED?

I care about the people to enjoy the shooting experience as much as I care about the final result. I prioritize to get comfortable and at ease. I run away from posy photos or over forced poses.  I aim for naturalness at every moment and we are going to have fun! 

Fortunately by experience, people who are not familiar with being in front of the lens take about 5 to 7 minutes to loose their camera awareness and feel relax (I promise, It is always like that ;)) 

I do create situations and actions where lots of nice and spontaneous poses will be naturally created, and sometimes hear me shooting ideas on how to place yourself to optimice composition. But you will have total space to be entirely who you are. I am inspired by your personality and attitudes to capture photos that reflect and highlight you.

When it comes to lighting,, indoors, I work with both natural light and depending on the scenario, occasionally I use artificial lighting as well. Outdoors however, I take full advantage of natural light. Shooting outdoors requires accurate knowledge on how natural light acts on faces and how to take advantage when it reflects in surfaces around the model. In addition, it is important to know how it behaves in every type of weather conditions as well as every type of hour where on a clear day light angle changes along the day.  It is my job to master it and find the most flattering light to create the most beautiful portaits in every spot we shoot at.

About the duration of the session, I am not on the clock, the sessions last between 45 and 75 minutes on average.

Throughout the shooting, I am happy to listen to you. If you have an idea, or a specific photo you always imagined, do not be shy, will be your chance so  do let me know!

If for complicated weather reasons (huge rain), the session can not be done,  it will be postponed regarding at our availability -yours and mine-.

If you have any question, will be a pleasure to talk with you!

IS IT POSSIBLE TO DO A FAMILY PHOTO SESSION AND MATERNITY COMBINED?

Yes, you can combine a pregnancy photoshoot with a lifestyle couple shoot. I will apply the same codes as the lifestyle shot while highlighting your pregnancy with of course the future dad.

Pregnancy lifestyle sessions are also possible indoors at the warmth of your home.

PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHER & RETOUCHER

While the photos must be excellent already in the raw file in camera, the editing, grading and final look of my images is an important aspect of my work. My work begins before the photo shoot, during the shoot and equally important, after the shoot. I work and retouch my photos both in Lightroom and in Photoshop depending on the requirement of the image. 
I do not apply any standard filters, I edit my photos one by one treating the light by zones towards the feeling to be conveyed, the atmosphere,  and the cinematic look I like to give to the images. 
I do not smooth the skin with any blur actions that can be found in any editing app on the smartphones. I run away from plastic skin feel and artificial look.
I do occasionally erase certain unwanted aspects (scar, marks…) according to your expectations, but skin pixel level work is not applied here.
