Aika, Haru, and their two-year-old son Kai are a lovely Japanese expat family living in Amsterdam. Several years ago, they relocated from Japan to the Netherlands for Harus work at a global shipping company. Watching their son Kai growing up so fast, they introduced a tradition of hosting a creative family shoot with an Amsterdam family photographer every year.

They booked me a family portrait session in Amsterdam just before their son’s second birthday. I was interested in getting such a creative experience and acting as a Japanese family photographer, so I agreed with ease to host this expat family photo session.

This Amsterdam family photoshoot took place in the picturesque city center among gorgeous Amsterdam canals and vibrant Dutch architecture. This surrounding created a cozy and relaxed atmosphere, perfect for Amsterdam family photography.

I believe that every expat photographer should pay special attention to the details, as they can make photographs look more authentic as well as show cultural identity and uniqueness.  Kai’s favorite fluffy toy Miffy, a must-have for Japanese children, added a stunning detail to these family portraits in Amsterdam.

The family members enjoyed each other’s company, having totally forgotten about the camera during our expat family photoshoot. It allowed me to take naturally looking and atmospheric family photos. Indeed, spontaneous family photography is the best way to capture the moment and depict genuine emotions.

This fun and at ease family photowalk in Amsterdam became one of the brightest memories for Aika, Haru, and their son Kai. The family was happy to depict such a precious moment in natural family portraiture. The Japanese family shoot in Amsterdam resulted in candid family photographs ideal to be professionally printed in a handmade family photo album or premium prints.
