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.

The couple of the day got married almost a year ago in Pistoia. Although they were initially interested in an engagement session before the wedding, they had such a busy schedule that it wasn’t possible. I ask them to switch to a […]

Family Portrait at Castello di Casole

As I drive along the deserted roads that lead from Siena to Castello di Casole, I cannot help but fall in love with the surrounding scenery. Nature here is still completely untouched: fields in bloom and rows of cypress trees have been for centuries the guardians of the Senese Chianti area. The San Galgano Abbey is the only attraction in the neighbourhood, visited by thousands of tourists every year. Not far away, Castello di Casole […]
