I first met Ellie and Pavel in 2016 when their son Adriaan was born. Almost three years later, they welcomed their second son, Philip. Ellie and Pavel have the kind of home where you walk in and you can feel the love and warmth which radiates in every room.
They are also the perfect example of a multicultural family who came together to make Haarlem their home. During the photo session, Ellie, Pavel and Adriaan spoke four different languages, all switching seamlessly depending on whom they were speaking to.
We focused on capturing lifestyle images of the family in different rooms in their home, much like we did in 2016 when I first photographed Adriaan. Philip’s newborn album is now proudly displayed alongside Adriaan’s in the family’s living room, a tangible memory of this precious and fleeting time in their lives.
Are you as excited as I am about documenting this phase in your family’s life?
