Athens Family Photo Shoot in Greece

Athens Family Photo Shoot in Greece

Hi, I’m Kristo, a newborn, child, and Athens 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 done family shoots in Paris, Bucharest and Santorini. My passion are also the maternity shoots. This is my most recent family photography in Athens, Greece’s capital.

The Wonderful American Family

Flora and Kevin, are originally from US but now live and work in 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 an Athens family photography session then as well. These guys belong 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 awesome 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 scenic views to the Mediterranean sea.

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 idea in location. As a result, they were very excited that I know of some of the best locations in the city. Not to mention that they were all so easy going and the whole session ran really smooth.

The most challenging part of this Athens family photography, was to make it’s members stand out well while capturing the essence of the city! Thus I took advantage of the short breastfeeding breaks and captured some very nice and natural pics of this important bond. In the meanwhile, 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 so 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 pic that precisely represents the love of the kids!

    I found your website on the internet and I am interested to book for August 12 for our family photo (2 kids and 2 adults). Right now I am debating between gold and majestic package. Any suggestions? Also on the photo shoots day, how many set of clothes are needed/recommended? Any other things you think that we should aware?

    Thanks,

    Sandy

  3. Dear Kristo,

    I’m luma from Jordan and planning to visit greece with my husband and baby in September 8-16. We will spend few days in crete, santorini & then athens. I would like to freeze the irreplaceable moments of my baby at this age and to have a photo session mainly for him and for the three of us together and where else better than on the beach. I think Crete (September 8-10) will be the best place for this in terms of backdrop & timing, i need your recommendation and if you are available what would be the arrangement; time & length of session, package..

    Looking forward to hearing from you,

    Regards,
    Luma
