Istituto degli Innocenti | Florence

Last weekend we went around town for the Florentine kids festival Firenze dei Bambini. It's an annual event with tons of great free activities for children - in fact so many that you can't possibly do them all.

One of our stops was at the Istituto degli Innocenti which holds a special place in out hearts as this is where my daughter went to nursery for two years.

The building recently got a huge makeover and is now prettier than ever so I couldn't resist to take a few photos while we were there.

News from my photography business

As you may have noticed I rarely post about my photography business here on the blog except for giveaways and some special deals. I have decided to only share my portrait photography on my website, where I have a sort of blog which I update on a regular basis with new sessions. You can see it HERE.

But since it's been some time now since I've written about my portrait photography I thought I would pop in today to just share a few things and some good offers as well.

First of all May is the month of mini sessions which means that you can book a mini session any day you like during the week at only 120 euro. (If you prefer to do it in the weekend there is a small extra fee). Mini sessions are great if you just want a few new portraits of your child, or if you simply have a limited budget for your session. More info HERE (in Italian).

Another great deal this month is my special offer for Mother's Day. I am offering a 100 euro discount on my Basic Package if you buy it before May, 14 2017. You can read more about that in my newsletter (in Italian and in English).

So now would be a really good time to book something if you are thinking about doing a photo session with me!

I have had some wonderful and exciting jobs lately. Some months ago I photographed the Florentine store Sociétè Anonyme for the Instagram profile of Levi's Made & Crafted.

One of my photos was published in Travel + Leisure and I also recently did a lovely business portrait session with Florence based Australian food writer, Emiko Davies and her family. (Make sure you check out her amazing food blog if you haven't already).

And then there are all the lovely family and kids sessions which I just adore and which I am looking forward to doing more of over the next months.

I have also started to receive a lot of requests from tourists coming to either Florence or Copenhagen who want to have some vacation family portraits. I love these sessions and I have tons of great locations to suggest so if you are going to be in Florence soon (or maybe Copenhagen this summer) feel free to get in touch if you would like to hear more about a possible family shoot while you are here.

Finally a couple of months ago I gave my website a makeover. Out went a lot of older work and I tried to simplify the information a bit. Oh, and I found myself a new font which I just love.

Have a look for yourself and see what you think: http://birgittebrondsted.com

That's it for now. I hope you enjoyed this little update. If you like to follow my portrait photography make sure you follow along on my Facebook page and Instagram profile where I share new work and info on a regular basis. You are also welcome to sign up for my newsletter if you would like to receive news directly to your inbox.

Have a wonderful day!

Cherry trees at Bispebjerg Cemetery | Copenhagen

If you live in Copenhagen or follow some Copenhagen blogs I'm pretty sure these photos don't need any further introduction. 

The cherry tree alley in Bispebjerg Cemetery has become quite a show over the past years. People get up in the middle of the night to be here as soon as the cemetery opens in order to (maybe) have the alley to themselves and thus get the perfect picture with no one in it. 

I was just happy to actually be in Copenhagen for the very first time during the relatively short period where the trees are in full bloom. 

So one morning I grabbed my camera and jumped on my bike to go and see the pink sea for myself. I wasn't the only one, but to be honest it was okay and I think the photos turned out well anyway.
