A: It is a story-driven style of photography that is based on the principles of photojournalism. I don‘t direct or pose you, I photograph you going about your day like you normally would. You don’t need to tidy up, have your house look perfect or even dress up for the photos. These photos are about your real, everyday life.
A: There is such beauty and poetry in the mundane. I understand, it's hard for me to see it in my own life when I'm in the thick of it. My job is to witness and document it for you.
A: Hardly different from your usual routine. The only difference is that i’ll keep you company with my camera. I won’t be making photos all the time, just when I see something. By the end of our time together it should feel like you just spent time with a friend.
A: Nah. Unless we are having a portrait shoot, there's no posing involved. Just do you.
A: I do edit the photos to ensure there's a consistency to the colour and general appearance. However, as this is photography of real life, I don't photoshop things in or out.
van der wedyen Family
the photos are amazing!! So many nice family ones, the children together and of Tim or I with the children. And Tim says better than our wedding photographs!
Having Gathoni at our home was truly a gift, you captured our reality with 2 young boys beautifully. We felt so comfortable being ourselves while you worked your magic. It was a day full of fun we certainly won't forget. We have the most amazing pictures for keeps that we treasure so much. Thank you so much for photographing our family. Can't wait for the next one!
I shared some of the photos with my friends,They found the shoot positively charming, and even stunning (despite being so untouched and unposed!).
over the last 5 years Gathoni has managed to capture the daily life of our family in all its highs and lows-from beautiful smiling faces to tantrums to secret kids business. These pictures will be forever cherished. Thank you, gathoni.
