Coffee and love are best served hot. – German Proverb

The love of this family session in Germany, beautifully captured by Sabine Periard Photography,  is filled with warmth like that of a good cup of coffee.

 What We Love:

Sabine: It was still a bit chilly outside when I met the Down Family at this beautiful location to make Jenn’s vision come true. In search of a location for their family photos she told me that she really wanted to incorporate the traditional German architecture as a backdrop. They’ve done sessions in parks and nature before and wanted a different style this time. We found this historical factory site nearby and Jenn was in love right away. Our session was fun and playful and the kids warmed up to me immediately. I love their outfits, interactions and the beautiful and playful moments we captured! I’m sure they will look back at these photos one day and remember their beautiful adventures in Germany.

Lisa and Rachel:  We love being able to see  a different part of the world with this family session.  What we notice in all our session submissions is the common factor of LOVE.  It doesn’t matter what part of the world the family resides, it doesn’t matter what race, color, or religion the family is, or if the family incorporates adoption, same sex parents, or single parents.  All of the families exude LOVE.  This is why we wanted to celebrate families in all forms!  This session in Germany by Sabine Periard is no exception!

Gear: Canon 5D Mark III, 85mm 1.8, 50mm 1.4

Location: The Historical Factory Maste-Barendorf
