What do you expect from a photo shoot? If you think that everyone will look magnificent in the photo and their sparkling teeth shine like a toothpaste advertisement while looking at the screen, we probably do not provide you with a suitable service :)
I think that was one of the biggest reasons I was a photographer; The desire to immortalize the "moment".
Whether we are aware of it or not, time passes rapidly and we cannot prevent this trend no matter what we do. We are growing, everyone changes with us. Sometimes when we stop and look back, all we have is our past photos. When I was a child, I used to look at the first youth photographs of my parents and write scripts inside myself. I would say, "This shot was taken while my mother met with her friends and went to the movies." Creating before and after stories for a frozen "moment" was a great pleasure for me. For minutes, I would examine people who do not look at the screen, especially in photographs, who are not aware that they are photographed. "What were they thinking?" I think this is what I inherited from those days; focus on real moments. Because if the feeling in the photo is real, it is much easier to go to that moment. It seems much more attractive to me to shoot what is in its true form than to create an artificial reality.
When the time passed, I don't want you to think, "The photographer told me turn right and look at the screen." Instead, he looked at the photo and said, "What a beautiful day." I do my best for you to say. Although it is not well known in the borders of our country yet, there are those who prefer documentary family photo shoot.
Although we mostly shoot wedding stories, some of you are aware; We also do birth and family shootings. We strive to achieve this in our own style in documentary form.
Our aim in family photo shoot is to reflect that day as it is, to its real state. For this, it is important for us to meet in advance. Afterwards, we host your home on a date we set together, or spend a day with you at a planned location.
We met with dear Nihal and İlker on the occasion of Can's birth. We met a few weeks before life was born and talked about how to take birth photos. Then one night, I got up with my phone that rang in the morning, took my breath in the hospital and photographed Can's coming to the world. One year after I took the birth story, I was a guest of Nihal and İlker's houses. We spent an afternoon together. We talked about how fast Can was growing, of course, I did not hesitate to shoot what happened at that time :)
It's been a while since I took these pictures, but I still have a happy smile on my face every time I look, and it takes me into that warm afternoon.
Dear Nihal, İlker and Can; I wish you a happy and healthy life together.
