Are you visiting il Borro with your family?
In this gallery, we’re pleased to share with you a session of Family photos at il Borro. Il Borro Relais & Châteaux, as they say on their website, is really “a place like no other”. Brandy and her family spent their vacation there, and they booked a Family Photo session with us. We were very curious to meet them since, they said, a family of former clients recommended us. Brandy is actually a friend of this family, which made things even more interesting for us. In fact, it’s nice to think that our clients have something in common, beside our photos. For us, it was always a kind of magic.
Searching for variety
The estate is surrounded by unspoiled nature and beauty, between Florence, Siena, and Cortona. Furthermore, it’s really huge and diverse: the locations go from a ranch with horses to a medieval village and luxury villas. Therefore, there was no reason to look any further: we just parked our car and strolled all over the hamlet. Eventually, we proposed to take some photos with the horses, just next to the main entrance. At that point, the wonderful resort’s crew gave us all a ride with their electric vehicles.
This is our first gallery in 2019, 10 years after we met each other and started our story as a family. In that period, we were shooting mostly weddings all over Italy. At the same time, we were following amazing photographers: among the many, Anna Kuperberg was an incredible inspiration for us. She was and still is shooting families and their pets, at their home, in a unique way. Her photos looked cozy as well as beautifully composed, and the people portrayed seemed totally natural and at ease. She used no filters, just her creativity, “from a child’s eye level”.
When we looked around us, there was basically nothing like that here. For this reason, when we created our own website, a few years after, we decided to dedicate to families. Even though our work is very different from hers, we strive to give our clients the same feeling, when they look back at their pictures.
