One way to get the most out of life is to look upon it as an adventure. – William Feather

Life is a beautiful adventure.  That’s why we are strong proponents of capturing as many moments of it as possible with professional photography.  Melanie, with Happy Photographer, in the Netherlands (another fabulous international submission!) did a phenomenal job of capturing this darling family photography adventure.

What We Love:

Melanie: I love capturing the energy, the love and the craziness that families have about them.  This is a recent session with a fellow photographer and her family. We met up in a gorgeous section of the Dutch dunes and had the place pretty much to ourselves even though it was a Saturday. It gave us every opportunity to venture off, run about, play games and be silly. I presented it as one big adventure and the kids really went for it. The smiles on these kids faces are why I do what I do. I really strive to make every family aware of how much they have to appreciate. To go back to what really matters: the love and joy in life.

Lisa and Rachel: We love the muted natural tones of this family session.  The nudes, pinks, blues, and grays are beautiful agains the natural tones of the dunes.  This is the perfect palette to tell the story of this family adventure with tons of laughter and smiles and most of all love.  We find this session to be the perfect example of a successful lifestyle photography session and we love Melanie’s mission to help families “get back to what really matters” with her photography.

Location: Kennemerduinen, Netherlands (dunes)
