Caro, la photographe
I am a family and newborn lifestyle photographer and I see life as it is. Sometimes that means a blur, or a hand reaching out, a daddy looking out of the window, gently rocking his newborn. It may mean a touch, a bed not made. Or still, a mother feeding her baby on a rocking chair that has been in a family for two generations. It could even be a cat who follows their owner all around the house… The unexpected, the little things are what I let myself see and capture. I take photos of that kind of life.
If you were to open one of our family photo albums, this is what you may see. Faces laughing but maybe not the entire face. Hair dancing in the light. The light that shines in our lounge in the evening and defines the contours of my little girl playing. You’d see images of me with my children – moments stolen and captured with the camera remote – and my hair would be messy because my kids love to cuddle close. Perhaps, there’d be a photo of my husband make a cup of coffee. There would be an image of the 4 of us walking together to our favourite local café – shout out to Artisan Roast – me holding my husband’s hand, watching our girls walking a bit ahead of us… Imagine your family album: you’d see images of simple but meaningful moments to you alone with your favourite people.
Summed up beautifully in wedding days, life shows it raw nature with the tears, the joys, the stories, the past, the future, close friends, family, good food… I crave for images of these raw emotions in intimate weddings that are all about the people. A beautiful decor completes the scenes of an event of a lifetime, but for me it doesn’t count as much as tears rolling down faces during the groom’s speech who has survived cancer, or as a thumb nervously stroking the beloved’s hand, the look of a dad seeing his beautiful daughter, who grew way too fast, in her wedding dress.
I believe in Life, as it is, and I create photos with families who believe in it too: the everyday and the unexpected with the light, the movements and the little things. If you are considering booking with me, you most probably share, or at least understand the meaning and the ideas behind my vision of photography.
