Featured Documentary Session: A Spring Afternoon with a Family of 5, by Julia Erz

Today, we are thrilled to feature a recent documentary photography session by Julia Erz, one our talented Listed Photographers based in Freiburg, Germany.
Julia told us:

Back in March, I had the pleasure of spending a warm Spring afternoon photographing this family of 5 with my brand new little Leica Q. During my documentary sessions, I am always fascinated to explore and get to know each family’s unique dynamic. With 3 small children there is bound to be a lot going on. And so it was with this family. I was able to capture both quiet and more energetic moments. When I left, the parents raved about how relaxed and easy the whole day was. Even the kids had noticed that they could just do their thing in peace without having to smile for the camera. The truth is, a documentary session is so much easier than you might think. It really is a lot of fun! With these pictures, this family is now able to preserve these key moments forever.

Diese 5-köpfige Familie durfte ich Anfang März an einem schönen, warmen Frühlingstag fotografisch mit meiner kleinen und feinen Leica Q begleiten. Während meiner Fotoreportagen finde ich es jedes Mal wieder faszinierend in die jeweilige Familiendynamik einzutauchen und diese kennenzulernen. Mit drei kleinen Kindern ist stets für Abwechslung gesorgt. Auch bei dieser Familie war stets etwas los. Ich konnte sowohl „ruhige”, als auch „laute” Momente fotografieren. Bei der Verabschiedung waren die Eltern begeistert, wie entspannt und einfach der Tag verlaufen ist.  Auch den Kindern habe ich es angemerkt, dass sie völlig entspannt ihr Ding machen konnten ohne in irgendeine Kamera lachen zu müssen. Es ist so viel einfacher, wie die Familie oft denkt! Es macht einfach total viel Spaß! In meinen Bildern habe ich diesen Nachmittag für die Familien in vielen kleinen Schlüsselmomenten festhalten dürfen.
We love how Julia captures all the fun and craziness, the dirt and mess of family life, all in the most beautiful, thoughtful compositions. You can see more of her work on Julia’s website.
