Votivkirche, Vienna | Winter Family Session

Votivkirche, Vienna | Winter Family Session

The days are getting longer and it’s beginning to warm up here in Vienna, but I’m reminiscing back on one of my favourite winter family sessions. Kate reached out to me shortly after she and her husband Greg, and two boys, Conor and Ryan, and their super cute Papillon, Scout, moved to Vienna. She confessed it had been a few years since they had family photos taken and she wanted some new ones now that they’ve settled into Vienna.

Burggarten, Vienna | East Family Fall Session

Burggarten, Vienna | East Family Fall Session

Originally from Australia, the East family relocated to Vienna because Michael found an amazing job opportunity in Vienna that he just couldn't pass up. Naturally, he couldn't leave behind his beautiful wife and his adorable little girl, so he scooped up the two most important ladies in his life and moved to the City of Music. They had been living here for a few months when we had their autumn session in the heart of Burggarten. When I first laid eyes on this little family of three it was like watching one of those families you see in those advertisements walk off the page of a magazine. They're adorable, down-to-earth, fun-loving, easy to talk to, and better yet, fun to joke around with. Pretty much all my favourite things.

Kurpark Oberlaa, Vienna | Horehled Family Fall Portraits

Autumn had just graced Vienna when the Horehleds booked their family session. They had been putting off getting family portraits but decided that Autumn in one of their favourite parks was the perfect place to have it. Laura's mom, Susan, was visiting from the States and jumped on in for a few portraits and their dog, Chewie, well...he ended up jumping in the lake!

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...
