Natural-looking photos...

Luciana has photographed my daughters several times over the years at different stages of their lives.

She is extremely patient, considering how uncooperative my children can be especially at a young age, and therefore she managed to capture their personality and take natural-looking photos without asking them to pose. The result is amazing, and I love every single one of the photos she has taken. She has a great eye and knows how to create a great setting and capture the light. I am truly thankful and happy to have such amazing pictures of my girls growing up and will treasure them forever!

I would highly recommend Luciana to anyone who would like to have memorable photos of their children.

Magical memories...

We invited Luciana to come to France to take some pictures of our daughters in late 2016 after being recommended by a friend. My wife and I are absolutely thrilled with the photos that Luciana took capturing our daughters’ expressions perfectly.

At first we were concerned that our youngest daughter would not be comfortable sitting for her photos but Luciana managed the situation perfectly not only making her feel relaxed but bringing out the playful cheekiness in the photos.

I recommend Luciana very highly. We are now proud owners of some magical memories of both our girls will definitely be making this an annual event to capture our children growing up.

We are so lucky to have found Luciana!

We are so lucky to have found Luciana! She did a long shoot session with our two sons. She truly captured the boys’ personalities and expression perfectly!

During the shoot she encouraged their true nature and playfulness to come out and the result was photos that really represented what we love of them both.
Luciana worked so well with them; her ease, bubbly personality and patience made it easy for the kids to be themselves. We are so happy with how the photographs turned out and we also loved all the ideas she gave us to frame them.

Luciana truly cares about her work and magically created an environment that made the day enjoyable and amazing photos that we’ll treasure forever.

Thanks again for a wonderful experience Luciana, we plan to do a photo shoot with you every year and see the boys growing up through your pictures!

Capture moments in time...

Luciana has created the most amazing memories for me and my family. It all started when she took some snaps of my children, then four and one year old, at our Pilates Christmas Party. I had to have more. I have been to Photography studios before to capture moments in time but Luciana did more than that. The images were beautiful, artful and not staged. The natural feel combined with aesthetic is what I was looking for all along.

So when it came to the big moment of my daughter's first day at school I asked Luciana to join us and to capture the big day on camera. The way she dealt with my two toddlers was amazing and what could have easily turned into a chore and several temper tantrums became an adventure that ended in the local park. 

Needless to say the resulting photos were stunning. Just what I had been looking for. The pictures truly represent my daughter and her brother the way they are and those memories of this special day will stay with us forever."

Amazing experience

It was an amazing experience to do family photo shoot with our 3 boys with Luciana. 

First of all, we appreciated the time she took to know our family, to choose with us the best location and looks before the session. 

On the day of the shoot, she was lovely and fun with the boys. She took all necessary time to make them confortable and enjoying the moment. She also, took amazing family pictures of the 5 of us in very natural poses.

The result of her large selection of pictures was beyond expectation. The result of colours, expressions and real moment of life on pictures was wonderful. We would recommend Luciana for a family or kids photoshoot if you expect a friendly and professional approach.

The shoot was a great pleasure. Luciana was brilliant with the children; she was very friendly and immediately put them at ease. We are very pleased with the results and are delighted to have some very classical, beautiful images that we will treasure forever. Luciana is a true professional. Thank you so much.

Risultato strepitoso e foto bellissime

Guardo sempre con emozione e piacere le fotografie che Luciana ha scattato a mia figlia Elettra perché attraverso esse colgo sguardi, espressioni, dettagli, particolari che mi rimandano a momenti dolcissimi trascorsi, ma senza la nostalgia che il tempo possa avermeli rubati, dal momento che negli scatti di Luciana tutto pare sempre vivo, attuale, intenso e quasi tangibile. La spontaneità  dei gesti infantili, dei sorrisi, delle posture sbilenche, delle pose buffe di Elettra è stata colta dal suo obbiettivo con sapiente maestria ma senza che la bambina abbia mai avvertito il peso della tecnica fotografica. Luciana è rigorosa, attenta, concentrata: fotografa con tutto il suo corpo utilizzando la macchina come mezzo per catturare, cristallizzare, evidenziare ciò che il suo occhio acuto e profondo ha già veduto, eppure nei suoi gesti, nel dialogo con Elettra, nella scelta del luogo e dell’abito, nelle spiegazioni che le ha fornito ci sono stati gioco, scherzo e leggerezza, complicità e levita’. Il risultato è stato strepitoso, le fotografie bellissime e l’attaccamento di Elettra a lei inattesa e toccante sorpresa. Il lavoro di Luciana è un prezioso e non comune esempio di professionalità e sensibilità, cura e passione che ci ha offerto, fra l’altro, l’opportunità di cogliere la dimensione più autentica e sensata della fotografia, della visione e del ricordo.

Professionalità elevata ad arte

Già ti apprezzavo come fotografa ma la tua professionalità si è elevata ad arte quando hai esaltato le fattezze delle mie nipotine riprendendo nei loro sguardi la gioia di vivere. Grazie per aver saputo cogliere dei fiori meravigliosi che spero potrai donare ancora a tanti nonni e genitori. Sei una bella persona e lavori bene con i bambini perchè sai interagire attraverso la tua prorompente vivacità.
