This was 2018 • documentary family photographer in Maryland

It seems 2018 is already behind but I just wanted to take a moment to look back and enjoy all the little things I captured for you. The world is in a tough place but 2018 filled my lens with lots of meaningful family moments (and meaningful was my word for 2018!) so MERCI for trusting me and my vision. You will find some of my favorite images in the video below, most of them were taken at-home and around. You showed me the places you loved and I am grateful I was able to freeze time for you and show you in pictures the great work you are doing as a parent.

There are things coming up for 2019, and the one I am particularly excited about is to partner with One Tree Planted. As I embarked my family on a zero waste lifestyle in 2018, my business needed a greener facelift too. It means that with every products you purchase, a tree will be planted! I will keep you posted throughout the year. LET’S PLANT A FOREST!

2018 was my busiest year so far. Thanks for supporting a small business, a woman, a mom. It really makes a difference in my life, for my family and in my community. So from the bottom of my heart, MERCI. I am looking forward to seeing what 2019 has in store.

Cheers 2018 and Hooray for another year 2019 looking forward to working with former and new clients!

Here are some photos of my personal family life in 2018. I feel like I take less and less everyday pictures except when we are in France or in vacation but this is one of my goal for 2019: more extraordinary pictures of our ordinary :-)

I have a documentary approach for photographing families so they can just slow down and enjoy the simple moment of being together. If you would like to see more of my recent family photography, head over to my Instagram account. I love to document the love (and tears) that go into family life, or managing a small business or a sweet reunion. Subscribe to my newsletter, I would love to have you there. xx

Preview of a beautiful ordinary weekend with Sharon's family in Maryland by documentary photographer Juliette Fradin

Sharon and her family is moving from Hyattsville, MD to the Hudson valley this summer. Capturing these photographs at this particular time, in this house meant everything. I will tell you more about it but I just. love. everything. about this session. 

In the meantime, subscribe to Sharon's podcast "Design Yourself: For people who want more". She is an executive coach and creative entrepreneur and her weekly episodes are full of down to earth tips and tricks to design "the life you want". 


Fusion Video by Juliette fradin, lifestyle family photographer in Maryland

My goal for the forthcoming months is to add some little video clips to slideshows. There is something about moving images that are priceless: the way a baby wiggles when he learns to walk, little gestures of love or the sound of the little voices.  

Your job Stay-home mum.

Hometown Hyattsville, MD.

Your perfect Sunday looks like... Warm, sunny, and spent outside with my little family at home in our garden (in an ideal world there would be no bugs and an icy cocktail or two).

Favorite place The beaches in QLD Australia.

How many time did you move as a family? We've been in Hyattsville as a family since Atlas was one.

Destination you dream of traveling to? Home to Australia to see my family. And anywhere tropical and beachy.

Best thing to do with children? Follow their lead and play - being outside getting messy in the mud kitchen, making art together, snuggling up and reading, small world and imaginary play etc. If I'm with my kids then it's the very best thing.

Best thing to do without children? Does that happen? Ha. Sleep! ;)

Name of your kid(s) and age? Atlas - 5, Pilot - 1

Atlas: favorite thing about school? Playing with Jo outside at school making paint out of charcoal, water, and redbuds. And drama inside.

Atlas: What do you want to be when you grow up? A zookeeper looking after the seals. Or maybe a husky driver. I don’t know.....

Atlas: What superpower would you like to have? Speed.

Atlas: Your idea for a fun family trip? To Canada to go husky sledding.

Atlas: What is the best thing about your mom? your dad? My mum is cute and snuggly. My dad loves me a lot. My mum and dad play with me.

Atlas: Favorite color? Why? Red - I just do.

I am a documentary family photographer. I love to photograph families at home, the epicenter of family life, where childhood memories are formed. I will capture your story when you are fearlessly you: when you do the things you love to do in the places you love to be. I catch glimpses of your family's personality when you are in the moment enjoying the simple fact of being together.

I love to document the love (and tears) that goes into family life, or during a sweet reunion, or when you are managing your small business. My style is far from standard posing and cheesy smiles. Instead I capture a feeling, an emotion, a connection. My clients demand something different, something honest and true to real life. Let's get in touch. 

I love bamboo prints • washington dc family photographer

You chose an amazing photographer that suits the need of your family, you had your session with her/him, you received your gallery.... NOW WHAT?

And you thought having your pictures taken was the most difficult part? :)

After you receive your gallery with your family's faces all over, now is time for picking the right prints for the right place in your house! 

Lucky you if you are a client of mine because of the lovely bamboo prints I offer! It is now by far my most popular product and I freaking love it! I love it so much that I put some on my walls all over my house. 

I am always looking for products that are unique, modern and eco-friendly (3 words that would totally define my business!!), things that *I* would put on my walls as well.

I love that they are actual prints (the image is not printed ON the wood but on photographic paper) mounted on a thick bamboo board with a keyhole in the back for easy hanging. I use matte paper because it matches my imagery very well. It offers a very nice and soft finish, a smooth touch, just elegant. And it preserves the print beautifully.  

The smaller sizes (like 5x7" or 8x12") are great on a shelf or your office desk. Up on your wall, you need to fill up a little bit more space so think of a wall display: at least two 11x14" format or just one big print. 

Photos belong in print, on walls, on shelves. It's the way they are meant to be enjoyed. Not to mention the little boost in your child self-esteem ;-)
