We are lucky enough to do a job that we not only love, but one that brings many amazing opportunities.
This month we were invited to Madrid by some former clients to do a 3 day family lifestyle photo shoot. They were so pleased with the photos we provided them whilst they were in the UK, they flew us out to add a new chapter to their photo collection. The Paris family moved to Madrid 2 years ago and wanted us to capture their time there before they flew back to the states.
We really wanted to do a shoot that would summarise their 2 years in Madrid and to create a shoot that would be really unique and personal to them.
This involved a busy 3 day schedule including:
Land in Madrid and off to capture their sons last football match held at a very exclusive Reebok centre,
Photograph the daughters last gymnastics practice,
Spend a day taking the family to their favourite spots in Madrid,
Photographing the family in their beloved (albeit empty) apartment with the last of their personal items,
Edit all the images in time for a viewing session before rushing to the airport to fly back.
Although it was a whirlwind trip we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and loved taking the time to get to know the family. By living with them for 3 days we really got to know the kids personalities and they became really comfortable with us, resulting in fantastic, fun, really natural photos.
We love lifestyle shoots and hope to encourage these full day shoots in the UK too. For us it’s a real honour to be invited into families lives and to photograph moments that will last for generations.
