Category Archives: Family Photo Sessions

Here you’ll find all posts of family photo sessions that were published on this blog since 2011.

Since then, my photography has evolved to a more documentary type of work and some posts may not be true to how I photograph nowadays.

To check out my current work, please visit the portfolio and latest blog posts.

If you’d like to have your family photographed with a documentary approach I would love to meet and photograph you.

In Lisbon | Baby photo session

At the beginning of this year I traveled to Montijo to meet Afonso and shoot my first 2016 photo session.

It was such a calm session, all on baby Afonso’s own rhythm that was only 3 month old at the time. The final result is so comforting, I’m very happy that I was able to reflect, through the pictures I made, all the tenderness and complicity involving this family. 

I’ve been receiving a lot of inquiries for sessions in Lisbon and surroundings and, often times, the extra travel fee ends up discouraging some families. So, lately I’ve tried to set a few days every now and then for me to travel to Lisbon for photo sessions and on those dates the travel fee becomes more favorable. This is an example of one of those sessions. At beginning of this year I traveled to Lisbon photographed several families there and they loved the final result.

The next date is May 27th to 29th. It’s not that close yet, but if you wish to schedule your session, do it fast (info@anapratas.com or +351 969080297).

So much color and joy | Family photo session

The increasingly colorful city of Águeda was the chosen location to do this family’s session. It was one of the last sessions of 2015 and it was the result of another gift voucher.

It’s not that common for me to photograph older kids and I must confess that coming into this session I was feeling a bit more nervous than usual.

But with such a happy family, this session couldn’t have turned out any better. The fun, the games, the laughter and the joy of this dad in the company of his son and daughter made my work a lot easier and I’m very pleased with the images I was able to make

A family afternoon | Family photo session

These beautiful images I bring you today are from a session that took place in Vila Nova de Gaia where I met and photographed a new family.

The session began at their, where baby Vicente enjoyed his quietness with that smile of his, and seemed to be absorbing everything that was on going on around him. Unlike his little brother, Gustavo got to jump high on his parent’s bed and you can tell the fun he had during the session.

By the end of the session, we went to the city’s park (Parque da Lavandeira) for a small walk and so that  Gustavo, still filled with energy, could show me his football moves.

A baby and a lot of smiles | Baby photo session

Today I bring you another photo session that was the result of a gift voucher. I’ve come to know this family for a while now, because Laurinha’s dad is one of the responsible people for my latest addiction, Crossfit. It happens that he was one of the founders of the box that I go, Crossfit Aveiro, which is only the best box in the world.
It was such a pleasure to photograph them. Laurinha was very happy the whole time (well, she hasn’t found out about burpees yet)  and loved to be in front of the camera. And mom and dad, with such a sweet baby, had no choice but to fill these images with smiles.
