Family photos Tuscany

The family portrait is a tradition born with the ancient European dynasties. Every king or queen had been portrayed together with their related at least one time, possibly in the spacious and luxurious rooms of their houses. At that time, photography had still to be invented, but painters learn and later teach how to use the light and pose to get the best from their subjects.

The tradition of the family portrait slowly got common also for not royal families, always interested in having a memory that goes beyond normal pictures. The family portrait is a current use nowadays. Sons and daughters gather with grandpas and grandmas to be portrayed. A journey to Italy is the best chance, thank for the beauty of the scenery that might be the background of outstanding pictures. The result is a memory that everyone will jealously keep and save for future generations.
