Elena + Guglielmo = Sophie | A family portrait in London
Love and family in West London
Family portraits are so important. You might want to be your own family photographer, or maybe, once in a while, you want to hire a professional. Either way, when it comes to children, it is essential to keep memory of the stages of growth. Family photography is such a beautiful experience for me too: I love it when the kids feel like they want to contribute and set up the different locations, change clothing, find props. They are the best assistants and the best models, because they really don’t care about how they look: they just want to have fun.
Elena and Guglielmo moved to London in 2009. We used to live together in Venice, as flatmates, when I was studying at C? Foscari University, and they had just met at Accademia, where they both studied fine art. After their graduation, they decided to look for a job in the Uk.? They both succeeded so well, that after a couple of years they decided to start a family and grow their daughter Sophie in the western neighborhood of Acton, in London. I followed their lives via messages and social networks, and I saw little Sophie grow into a beautiful girl. I was so happy to finally meet her!
London is such a huge and complicated city, we only managed to take photos in the evening, when the sun was gone already. But Elena has such good taste: the house was perfect for a photoshoot. On a desk, pencils, canvases, paint: both Guglielmo and Elena (and now Sophie) use their free time to make art. I tried to capture the joy that sparked so easily when Sophie played with her parents, when they cuddled her, when they looked at each other.
