Family Lifestyle | Palmer, Alaska | Engelbrecht

I have been photographing families for six years.   In that time, I have striven to capture real, authentic emotions, as well as those in between moments. And although I own my own business and regularly photograph what matters most to me, I still felt that I didn’t have permission from my clients to capture those non posed, silly, playful, and in between moments that are shared between family members. I felt like the majority still wanted beautifully posed portraits. There are some amazing photographers out there who do that well. But the more settled I get with myself and the wilder my three kids get, beautifully posed images are not who we are. And I know what matters to me, must matter to my clients as well. So from this season on, I am striving to photograph what matters most and that is the connection.

Italy 2015

Many people have asked how my trip went… And here’s how it went down:

Milan 3 nights: It was just our place to sleep. We didn’t get a chance to explore the city because we were too busy taking day trips. Day Trips: Lake Como and Venice, both equally spectacular and totally different!

Florence 2 days: We had no agenda, which was great! We just walked and walked… around every corner was something incredible to look at. We felt more secure there than in Milan.

Tuscany 8 days: I could move there tomorrow, it was that great! I really don’t know how to describe it, but pure perfection! It reminded me so much of where I grew up in N.E. Georgia, but with little villas and mountain top villages with castles.  We met up with a group of Alaskans for a tour of mid-evil Italy. Basically towns that were mostly in their original form from lack of money to keep them growing. Sienna, Pienza, Voltera, Monteriggioni, Montalcino, San Giminiano…

Podere Paugnano an Agricola Biologica (organic farm) in Radicondoli, Tuscany is where we stayed. I didn’t research it before leaving so no preconceived ideas would be formed. It was beyond anything I could of ever hoped for! All the city stuff was great to look at, but this farm stole my heart! It was spread out on many acres up on a hill facing a small valley and the town of Radicondoli on the next hill with its quaint castle tower watching over the Tuscan Valley. This farm produced sheep cheese and olive oil. Since it took me until the end of our trip to switch to Italian time I woke before dawn every morning to hear the sheep being moved to the field below our house. Some had bells around their necks and it sounded like wooden wind chimes and very relaxing! Every morning at 8:30 we sat down family style to a breakfast of coffee with steamed sheep’s milk, fresh bread with butter and local honey, fresh sheep yogurt with granola and an assortment of jams, fresh fruit (figs) and fresh scrambled eggs with olive oil. After breakfast we would leave on our tour to discover a new town. Every night we would come back to the farm for a delicious family style meal cooked by the matron of the household, Giovanna. She and her husband Giovanni and their daughters Tamara and Natalie were very welcoming and generous hosts. Natalie and Tamara spoke English and with their translations and lots of hand gestures we all carried on quite nicely! 

I know you want to get to the pictures so I’ll stop rambling on… Enjoy!

There are lots of natural hot springs in Italy and the Romans built a pool around this one and a shower. The Romans used to stop and bath here on the way to and from Rome. This was a public pool and two images below shows the public showers.
