Athens Family Photo Shoot in Greece

Athens Family Photo Shoot in Greece

Hi, I’m Kristo, a newborn, child, and family photographer located in the fascinating Greece. People recognize me for my happy personality, creativity, love and patience with children. I’m one of the most sought after new born and family photographers in Athens and recently in worldwide destinations. I have conducted family shoots in Paris, Bucharest and Santorini. My passion are also the maternity shoots. This is my most recent family photo shoot in Athens, Greece’s capital.

The Wonderful American Family

Flora and Kevin, are originally from United States but currently live and work in South Germany. The couple was planning to run the Athens marathon. They were also bringing their daughters with them. Their little girls were 7 years and 8 months old and the family liked to do a family session then as well. This family belongs to the adventurous and travel addicts. Flora is a brunette, alluring lady who gave birth to her second daughter a few months ago. It’s incredible how well she has maintained this model-perfect shape! Likewise, her husband Kevin, is an attractive athletic gentleman & father who takes his family responsibilities very seriously. The hotel that they were staying at was Divani Apollon Palace & Thallaso. It’s a deluxe 5-star European style hotel with panoramic views to the Mediterranean sea.

The portrait shoot in Athens

Along with the make up artist, Nantiana, we arrived at the hotel around 09:30 a.m. Nantiana, did the perfect natural make up & eye look for Flora! She also took care of the modern hairdo for the mother and her daughter. Her job was marvelous! Since this was their first time in Greece, the family had no preference or idea in location. As a result, they were very excited that I know of some of the best locations in the city. They were all so easy going and cooperative and the whole session ran really smooth.

The most challenging part, was to make the family stand out well while capturing the essence of the city! I took advantage of the short breastfeeding breaks and captured some very nice and natural pics of this important bond. The baby was so calm into her mother hug; she didn’t cry at all! I have to admit that she seemed to enjoy the day as much as we all did! Please scroll down to see a few more of my favorite family pictures in Athens city, Greece.

It’s said that breastfeeding not only tends to produce happy and healthy babies, but it also creates confident mothers!

The two adorable sisters

Then, came the time to take a few pictures of the two sweethearts! The sisters were so attached and in tune with one another that made the pictures pop! Amber, was always taking care of her younger sister and together posed amazingly naturally in front of my camera. It was now when became more creative and the following picture turned out my favorite one. We gathered some fallen leaves, threw them in the air and… Voilà! A fantastic picture that precisely represents the love of the kids!

A stop at the Hans & Gretel sweet shop

This store is like a kid’s dream!! It is bright and colorful! It offers a ton of selections between barks, brittle, truffles, candies apples and pretzels, and fudge! If you have a little one, they may not want to leave the shop and this is what happened to us!!
