Here I am hired as a Tuscany family photographer!
Today I’m moving on tiptoe following this creative family during their vacation at Villa Ulignano.
I love taking pictures of families.
Actually, that’s the way I became a photographer! My mom bought me the first camera when I was 17 and she decided I was going to be the official “ family photographer” of all our special reuinion.
This is why, I feel my family in every family: special emotional ties, moments of love and intense intimate chatting. During a family photo session, I pose people very little, just for the traditional portraits, and then I love focusing on dynamics, relations, and steel portraits.
BUT, LET’S GO BACK TO MY STORY AS A “TUSCANY FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHER“.
When I arrived at Villa Ulignano everybody was drawing live with charcoal a naked model, that was an exciting beginning!
The celebration of a special birthday was their chance to take this family’s travel to Tuscany. A unique family retreat, an intimate precious reunion.
8 brothers and sisters and their families! We spent so much time on the funniest group’s pictures and the villa was exclusively for them.
Villa di Ulignano, close by San Gimignano and Volterra, is a prestigious Villa with an enchanting panoramic view. It was the right place to get all the family together and create some beautiful art and to enjoy life.
It was the right place to sit together at a very long table under the shadow of a centuries-old cedar of Lebanon.
Listening to live concert of violas music, enjoying excellent wine and homemade Italian food – looking through some old family pictures together – quality time with your loved ones…I promise to myself to do that soon with my family.
Is there a better way to celebrate your birthday?
Yes! It is worthy to remember this day with the right pictures.
My next travel in Tuscany with my family I will hire my favorite photographer to keep preciuos memories of the days.
