Family Photography in Athens
I am proud to say that I am one of the most sought-after maternity, newborn and family photographers, not only in Greece, but in destinations all over the world. I take pride in the patience and care I take when working with children of all ages, and the creative and fun approach that I take to family photo shoots. I love having the opportunity to see every member of the family expressing their own unique personality and showing their love for each other in both candid and formal shots with the beautiful backdrop of the Greek landscape.
An American Family Photo Shoot
Although I am based on the island of Santorini, I have traveled around Greece and, indeed, around the globe, for family photo shoots. Most recently, I traveled to Athens, our country’s capital, to work with a lovely American family who had asked me to capture their visit to the city.
Kevin and Flora, originally from the USA but now living and working in Germany, were in Athens to run the marathon. They were accompanied by their two daughters, aged 7 years and 8 months. As the couple are seasoned travelers with a love of excitement and a passion for adventure, and I wanted to capture this in their photo shoot by taking them to some of the city’s most unusual and exciting locations.
An Athens Portrait Shoot
I arrived at the couple’s luxury hotel at 9.30am along with Nantiana, our makeup artist, who gave Flora a beautiful, natural look before styling her hair, and creating her daughter’s modern hairstyle.
As the family had never visited Greece before, they wanted some advice about where to have their photos taken. Luckily, I know some of the city’s very best spots for taking beautiful and dramatic pictures, so we headed to some of Athens’ most spectacular natural beauty spots. From winding traditional streets to rocky outcrops, and from ancient monuments to sunny parks, I captured some wonderful candid and formal shots of this happy family as they enjoyed each other’s company and the wonderful sights of the city.
My challenge was to make sure that not only did the family look their best, but the gorgeous scenery of Athens was also showcased to its best advantage. However, when the couple saw the final shots they were absolutely delighted at the final results. From the atmospheric black and white shots of father and daughter exploring the ancient city streets to the sweet and intimate images of the two daughters snuggling together, their family photo shoot in Athens was a true success.
Arranging Your Own Family Photo Shoot
If you’re looking for a family photographer to capture your own family’s precious moments in Athens, or further afield, I will happily travel to you. From my base on Santorini, I have traveled to a wide range of Greek and overseas destinations for photoshoots, including Mykonos, Zante, Crete and Corfu, so don’t hesitate to contact me to let me know your own requirements.
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!
A stop at the Hans & Gretel sweet shop
This store is like a kid’s dream!! It is bright and colorful! What’s more, 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!!
