When a family photo session turns into a great morning with the amazing people in Saigon


In any portrait photography, a connection between the photographer and the model is crucial to achieving the best results. Family photo session goes beyond that because as a photographer I need to also catch a family vibe - the connection they have between them. Well, with this family, we were synchronized a second we met near the Saigon Opera House!


We spent our 1-hour session just walking the early morning Saigon streets on Sunday (all the way from the Opera House down to the Ben Thanh Market). We aimed to capture the city lifestyle to save some of their expat-life memories.


I call these photos "a family indie rock band session" and like them very much.


Photos are after minimum skin retouching in Photoshop and with colors achieved thanks to my custom preset in Lightroom.
