A few months ago, when I visited Albania and then Italy, I had the pleasure of photographing an adorable family. For a series of unfortunate events, the session took place 2 days before we had to fly back to Europe and daddy Marco had to be in London for work, thus the title of ‘family of four -1’.
Without further ado, meet…
Mario. The newest member of the family. He wasn’t even 6 months old in this picture.
Last time I met Carolina on a family vacation that brought them to San Francisco, she told they wanted to expand the family. I wished her good luck. What do you know, back from the trip she found out she was expecting.
Mario has incredible eyes. And yes, they are as blue as they seem in these photos. I did not enhance them. Actually, I debated toning them down for fear of coming across as the photographer that makes people look like they have fake alien eyes, but he is what he is. I might have mentioned it to his mom a few times, how incredibly blue they are.
He also happens to be a pretty good baby. Quiet, content and generally happy!
For a brief moment, meet big brother Leonardo. I stopped him the second he got back from school, to snap a few with little brother before he changed to head out for the portraits that are to come later in this post.
Meet the mom to these two incredible boys.
Leo is the sweetest big brother.
