Rathaus and Volksgarten in Vienna | Mother and Daughter Portraits

A long time ago, when I first moved to Vienna, the first job I got was as a kindergarten teacher. It was one of my favourite jobs. Some days were grueling, but, more often than not, it was very rewarding. It also was the best way to learn and practice my German, as well as learn more about Austrian culture. I had the pleasure of having Miss M as one of my students during my time at the kindergarten and when she moved back to the states with her mama a piece of my heart went with her.

Belvedere, Vienna | Wong Family Session

Alethia and Dave's story spans not only time but various countries. They both went to Oxford where they met each other while pursuing their MBA. They settled back in the States where they then tied the knot on August 30th, 2014 (you can see their gorgeous wedding here on Michelle Lange Photography). And every year for their anniversary they plan a trip to a country where they spend time focusing on each other and exploring. Even after having welcoming their daughter Rose earlier this year they decided to still keep up the tradition and brought her along on their anniversary trip.

Donauinsel, Vienna | Heather Family Summer Portrait Session

Donauinsel, Vienna | Heather Family Summer Portrait Session

Mark and Mariana wanted summer photos of their family so we collectively decided to have their session at Donauinsel. It was a rather warm day on the day of their session so we took frequent breaks in the shade or in the water so that no one got overheated. I found that this helped the kids a lot, especially when it came to taking some dips into the cool Danube water. They couldn't resist enjoying themselves once they got in there and I couldn't resist photographing their happiness. When my clients are having fun it makes for a fun session for all parties involved.
And that's one of the things I love about this session; they're having fun. Not to mention the lively colors! Just looking at the colors in these shots makes me miss summer! Maybe not the heat though...
