The green rolling hills of Tuscany, white paths lined with cypresses, the warm summer light: what an amazing setting for sweet family photos, right? Jacqueline and Clayton didn’t miss the chance to have their annual vacation photo shoot in Val d’Orcia, when they visited it. And you can see the natural yet elegant result in this gallery!
Jacqueline and Clayton’s sweet family photos
Jacqueline, Clayton and their children are a smiling American family, who enjoyed a beautiful holiday at Rosewood Castiglion del Bosco. This location, surrounded by the iconic Tuscan landscapes, is a gem for all those seeking a peaceful, private and vibrant atmosphere.
We shot the first, sweet family photos taking advantage of the picturesque hamlet around the villa while breaking the ice – that’s always the starting point, especially with children who are not so little anymore, and who have their specific personalities. As a photographer, you need to get to know them a bit before being able to take genuine portraits. Luckily, every member of the family was cheerful and extremely nice, and it didn’t take much time for them to feel completely comfortable in front of the camera: you can see how they danced, laughed and played together!
The second part of the photo shoot took place in the private vineyard, called “Capanna”. Such a breathtaking and unforgettable spot! The magic of that setting, combined with the golden hour and the fun they had, allowed me to take some truly memorable shots – memories that they will treasure forever.
When family vacation photos become a tradition
For Jacqueline and Clayton, having sweet family photos taken by a professional during their holidays is a tradition. Every year, wherever they go, they get in touch with a local photographer that captures the essence of that trip.
That’s what they did with this family vacation: the photos we shot perfectly portray Val d’Orcia and Rosewood Castiglion del Bosco, so that they can keep a vivid memory of the place for a long, long time. But the main reason why this tradition is such a good idea is that it allows the parents to keep track of the growth of their children, and to remember every detail of their family vacation through beautiful images.
