I have a lot of families I photograph around the island every year. I get a lot of emails with requests of photographing big families. Many families comes to Gran Canaria from all over Europe to celebrate an anniversary of their parents, who maybe celebrate 60, 70 or a marriage anniversary. Typical for these photo sessions, are that we take the group photo of the hole family, which maybe counts up to 20 people.

This photo session with this Norwegian family was very fun and a extremely nice experience for us. The family has lived and worked at Gran Canaria for some years, and the children have been students at the Norwegian school in Arguineguin. It was now time for packing up their belongings and going back to Norway. But first they wanted a photographer to capture some memories for them before they left. So one day Torstein called me and asked if it was possible to do a family photo session up in the mountains of Gran Canaria. He told me that...

Besides wedding photography, I also do a lot of family photography too. This family is from Holland and stayed in wonderful Hotel Riu Palace Meloneras, where we were allowed to take the photos of them, in addition to the beach.

And what a wonderful opportunity to take some family photos. Do you want a family photo shoot while on holiday at Gran Canaria? Please contact me for information...

I had the joy of doing a photo session with Stacey, her son and brother and her parents this autumn. I get a lot of requests for family photography, and there are so many reasons for doing a shoot while spending your vacation on Gran Canaria. We have wonderful nature and beaches, and almost always good weather. So good conditions for a great session. If you are planning a family photo session with me, please book in time, I unfortunately have to say no to many requests, as they come in to late and I am already booked. Beach shooting can also...

We had a rally fun photo shoot with this family from Gjerstad. Gjerstad is not far away from my hometown Risør, so it was very nice to meet someone from back home in Norway and especially Nunne. Nunne is a very eccentric woman in a very positive way, full of energy and you can´t avoid to be very happy and get very exited when she´s around 🙂 She brought her twin daughters, Anita and Gry, with their husbands and children, for their holiday in Maspalomas. We had a great time with them at their hotel near the golf in Maspalomas. It was an...

This is absolutely one of my favorite photo shoots from Puerto Mogán. Anna contacted me for a shoot while coming to Gran Canaria with her husband, sister and parents, who celebrated their 25th wedding anniversary. This wonderful family is from St. Petersburg in Russia, but Anna and her husband Evgeny lives in Stockholm in Sweden. I did a photo shoot with their friends, Valeria and Evgeny two years ago on their honeymoon til Gran Canaria, and it was so lovely to have their friends with us in Puerto Mogán. I find people from Russia very...

This happy and smiling family are coming from Kristiansand in south in Norway. Kristiansand is not so far away from the city I lived in while I lived in Norway, just 1,5 hour to drive. We really had a fun time with this family during the family photo shoot, with lots of positive energy, laughing and fun moments. We started in the park just beside my studio, and then we went to Amadores beach. It is fantastic to be a photographer and have all this beautiful surroundings nearby. We was so lucky with the sunset during this shoot, it was so...
