The Van Dalen family photo shoot in Chania’s Venetian Harbor


A family of four, Richard, Gaby, Niels and Robin met up with me and my assistant Agie for a one-hour session in the Venetian Harbor of Chania, Crete here in Greece.

Coming from Holland they definitely enjoyed the nice sunny day in town.

And here are a few words from Gaby:

In English:

What place should be better for a family photoshoot than a place in the country that feels like a second home to us: Of course no other than a place in Greece! That was the thought I had before I searched for a photographer nearby Chania, to surprise my husband during our holiday in Crete. When I saw Andreas’ website I immediately contacted and I got a good en clear advise of the options within our possibilities and wishes. Yahoo, the day before leaving for Crete, while packaging our suitcases, we had a deal! After a week juicing up the Greece atmosphere, and all having a tiny tan on our faces, the day had come. At once it felt comfortable with Andreas and assistant Agie. With ease and humor, we went through it all, in the lovely old town of Chania. We all enjoyed it very much and we love the result. Wow, what a souvenir we now have!

Thanks a lot, Andreas, and Agie of course, for the beautiful photographs and good memories of the moment.
And in Dutch:
Welke plek zou beter zijn voor een familie fotoshoot dan een plek in het land dat voor ons als tweede thuis voelt: Natuurlijk geen andere dan een plek in Griekenland! Dat was mijn gedachte voordat ik op zoek ging naar een fotograaf in de omgeving van Chania, zodat ik mijn echtgenoot kon gaan verrassen tijdens onze vakantie in Kreta. Toen ik de website van Andreas zag, heb ik gelijk contact gezocht, ik kreeg een goed en duidelijk advies van de opties binnen onze mogelijkheden en wensen. Joehoe, op de dag voor vertrek, tijdens het inpakken van onze koffers, was er een deal! Na een week de Griekse sferen in ons op te hebben genomen, en met een lichte teint van de zon op onze wangen, was de dag aangebroken. Het voelde meteen comfortabel met Andreas en assistent Agie. Met gemak en humor ondergingen we het allemaal, in de lieflijke oude stad van Chania. We hebben er van genoten en het resultaat is prachtig. Wauw dat is nog eens een souvenir!
Erg bedankt Andreas, en natuurlijk ook Agie, voor de prachtige foto’s en goede herinneringen van dat moment.

Chania Crete family photographer (The Pedersen’s from Norway)
Family photography sessions in Chania, Crete are always fun for me. Especially when young kids are involved. Although the kids bring up the challenge factor due to their natural spontaneity. I have to be extra sharp not only to catch the right instance of a moment, but better yet, foresee it coming.

Family photographer in Chania Crete, photo session of Soley-Jakob and family from Iceland
Up until a few hours of this photo shoot in the Old Town of Chania, I wasn’t sure if it was going to happen. Due to the weather changing every other day I thought that the family wanted bright sun and crystal blue skies. But Jakob and Soley live in Iceland and the cloudy weather didn’t bother them at all. A rare case for Crete in the Summer, but a possibility none the less. The family, with their distinct and relaxed presence, inspired me to use the days' characteristics to match their style. During our one-hour family photo session, we quickly got to know each other and have some fun in the proses. I really can’t wait to repea ...
