My approach to family photography is to capture you as you are. Rather than posed and forced photographs, it’s about seizing the essence of your family and the connection you have. I want to capture the feeling, the mundane, and the wild raw beauty of the life you have together as a family.
I want to create photographs that evoke emotions. It doesn’t matter if your child is unhappy, or something doesn’t go as planned - I want to capture the honest story of your family. We have time for everyone to get used to the camera and if someone needs a break, that’s totally fine. I can photograph other family members or look for other shooting spots for us in the meanwhile. I follow what unfolds before my eyes and capture the beauty in it.
How do you like to spend your time together? Is there a place that is special to you? We can relax at your home or in your backyard, go to a picnic, watch the sunset at the beach, hike in the forest or explore a new landscape. What makes sense to you as a family? Let’s do that!
After going through some significant changes in my life and an emotional separation process, the photos Eija took of my children and me give me an enormous amount of joy and strength.
Eija has an amazing skill to capture moments. The whole shoot day left us with really good feeling and the photographs are absolutely wonderful. I have no words to describe the love that comes through those photographs. I have come back to those photographs many times after the shoot and I always get the same lovely warm feeling.
Our kids enjoy the photoshoots with Eija and she is always considering their needs first. Her photos are very authentic and she has managed to capture beautiful moments from our everyday life in our home and outdoors.
Everyone has a story. My mission is to capture memories of this moment in your life through beautiful imagery.
