I’m Mat, and I’m a Portrait Photographer
that specializes in Family Photography
, Children Portraits
, Senior Portraits
, Surprise Proposal
and Engagement Photography
. And I must say that all of them have their own unique and special magic. That’s the reason why I left Landscape Photography, which I was very passionate about, and turned into a Photographer that loves to be close to people in the happiest moments of their lives
More than fifteen years of passion run through my veins when I talk about my own photography, and I still get that magnificent and inexplicable thrill, when shooting a family photography photo session
like the Elena’s 80th Birthday. Family photography
is something I enjoy doing both, outdoors and inside the comfy air of a house. The best reason I can give for my love for family portraits
, is that for a short amount of time, I can share the intimacy of a warm family that want to leave a mark on their own timeline. I love to get involved in the ideas behind unique family photos
, since I'm deeply passionate over photography. Planning is the key for great shoots, and extended family pictures
are definitely no exception to this element.
I want to thank Elena and her family; not just for giving me the great opportunity to share with them a warm moment on a chilly weekend morning, but for their trust. The trust that all my clients put in my work, is something I value the most.
All families have their own history, and I feel hoisted into a great place when helping that family history, be preserved. I'm more than just a group portrait photographer
when I'm surrounded by complete families, filled with second, third and even fourth generations in one special place. I really become a special guest, a special friend then being part of a Family Portrait like the ones Elena's family allowed me to do. I love to showcase my experiences with my clients, but I call them clients because of tradition. In a way, I'm a guest, an honorable guest invited to be part of a whole family's history.
The idea behind Elena’s 80th birthday was simple, but completely rewarding. The scene was a lovely woods by Charles River, and the only detail that reveals her Birthday, were two metallic balloons shaped in a cute and big number 80 with their golden figures and a sign with colored letters. After putting the balloons and the sign aside, the family became even closer than before. It was magical. I still remember when the whole family started to laugh together, and became joyful of the moment they were celebrating. They all showed their love for Elena, and I could see Elena's joy of watching her family getting along so happily. Elena was surrounded by her children and grandchildren, and she seemed so full of life, by being surrounded by her closest family members.
I just can't thank Elena, and all my clients enough, because they allow me, to be the one that preserves their History, and their Legacy, through my Passion and my Lens
