mariana de albuquerque lifestyle family photographer

If you are searching for candid baby photos, a lifestyle family photographer might be a great option for you. Unlike traditional family portraits that might be stressful and overly posed, a lifestyle family session is relaxing and follows a child-led approach.

In this recent in-home motherhood photo session, the two adorable little sisters gave me all sorts of emotions to capture!

I simply love how young children can go from laughter to meltdowns back to contagious smiles in a matter of minutes. As a mom of two boys under the age of 3, we certainly experience our fair share of emotional moments more times than we can count on any given day.

Parents who will truly enjoy their images from a session with me are those who are cool and laid-back. And who will embrace all the different moments their children will give during our time together with warmth and joy.

Because of my photojournalistic approach, I will follow your children through the ups and downs during our session. While we can certainly minimize meltdowns during the planning phase, these moments are bound to happen at one point or another.

As such, as a lifestyle family photographer, I will deliver an image gallery that is honest and filled with authentic storytelling moments. Which might include goofy faces, crocodile tears, comforting hugs, spontaneous breastfeeding, and so much more.

My family session is right for you if the “perfect” images you envision are candid baby photos. Those imperfect images that will evoke true feelings and emotions. And bring you back to this moment of your life with real memories attached to them.

About your family and baby photographer

Hi, there! My name is Mariana. I am so thankful you are looking at my work on my website and blog. 

As a fine art maternity, baby, and family photographer, I specialize in families with young children. I am currently ranked the number one photographer in Toulouse, France, by the Photojournalist Family Association.

If you love my work, and you are looking for an English-speaker photographer in France, I would love for us to start planning your session.

Together, we will create a collection of fine art love-filled images through a stress-free experience. My approach to photography includes a mix of very natural posing and photojournalistic moments. This allows for an experience where your whole family feels comfortable and relaxed. So all you really have to do is to enjoy being with each other.

If you live in Toulouse, you can opt to have your session in the comfort of your own home. Also, at a beautiful park, open field, or even at my studio. For destination family sessions, I offer in-home and outdoor sessions. Because of my passion for traveling, I serve families worldwide, with regular trips to Paris, London, Marseille, Basel, and Zurich. I also love photographing in Dordogne and Pays-Basque.
