Architecture allowed light to enter this space, carving shadows and creating an atmospheric design, perfect for this very modern and fashion oriented maternity shoot. We really love these images, since we believe they are a true reflection of this very stylish soon to be mother.
macao by brancoprata
Last January we went on this crazy adventure with our dear friend Greg Finck, and we spent a week in Asia (Macao first and then Tokyo) to work on an brand editorial for Sheraton Asia! We did the creative direction, styling and flowers for the two stories that Greg shoot, and it was probably one of the most challenging weeks of our lives! But lets leave all that to another blogpost!
couple shoot by the sea
When Audrey told us she was coming to Porto and wanted André to take photos of her and her boyfriend Nicolas, we felt not only excited but also honored. We met Audrey a couple of years ago in Paris and since then we never lost contact! Audrey is also a film photographer known for her unmistakable fashion house-inspired aesthetic, so it was quite easy to shoot her and Nicolas.
The chemistry between the two is more than obvious, which made everything even easier to shoot! And on top of everything, the weather decided to help us, and a absolutely magical sunset with a mystical fog added even more romanticism to this session and consequently helped translate that almost poetic atmosphere of a late afternoon on a beach in Matosinhos, here in our lovely hometown, Porto.
We hope you enjoy these images as much as we do!
black & white portraits II
One of the things we love to do during low season is to experiment. Try new techniques and just allow are creativity to run free! Here's a few portraits we've done back in November with our niece Sofia, the oldest of the 5 we have! Not only is she beautiful, but also a kind person with a golden heart and a unique sense of humour!
Oh and on the last two images you can also see Helena, Sofia's sister and my gorgeous goddaughter.
maternity shoot by the beach
It's Valentines day, and what better way to celebrate love than sharing a few images of a beautiful family, as they get ready to welcome their first baby?
Cristiana and Rui opted for a layed back maternity session in one of their favorite places... by the water. Hope you like these images as much as we do.
