GISELA’S EXTRAORDINARY EYE FOR
MAGICAL MOMENTS, RESULTED IN
HEIRLOOMS THAT WE WILL TREASURE

forever

 matthew robins

It’s not every day that a family decides to commission professional photography. For us, in fact, it was the first time that we’d ever planned a proper photographic record of the four of us, some eight years after our youngest was born. And we had a sense that we probably wouldn’t be doing it again for a while, so we needed to be sure we got it right.

The most important thing for us was that the pictures captured us as relaxed as possible, doing things we love to do. We knew before our planning meeting with Gisela that we loved her style, but we were still nervous about whether she could make us look as good as the other families she’d photographed…

We needn’t have worried.

Gisela’s priority was making sure we created memories of our family life at its best, and she worked closely with us to plan two different shoots with that in mind. 

Boating is a big part of our life, and Gisela was very happy to join us afloat for a couple of hours on a beautiful day to get photos of us playing on the water. Her imaginative eye shone through in the scene-setting shots of colourful details of the boat and the marina, and she made us all look better than we could ever have imagined.

The second shoot was on the sand dunes, where we walk many times every week. Once again, Gisela’s extraordinary eye for magical moments resulted in a set of photos that we will treasure forever.

Taking delivery of our beautifully bound album, and a set of mounted prints, was a very emotional experience. Gisela created family heirlooms for us; items of huge and lasting value. And we actually had fun making them with her!
