what if i don't want my kid's face to be shown online?

your family or couple shoot

The decision many parents face about whether or not to show their kids' faces in online photos. It's a topic that comes up often in my work as a lifestyle and family photographer, and I totally get why it's on your mind. Whether I'd love to use some of the images from your shoot on my social media and portfolio, or if you'd like to share some of those precious moments on your own social media without the kid(s) being recognizable. I understand the importance of respecting your wishes while still creating meaningful images.

concerns and solutions

online safety

We all want to keep our little ones safe, especially in the vast and sometimes unpredictable world of social media. It's completely natural to have concerns about who might stumble upon those precious photos and what they might do with them. So after your shoot, you'll receive a password protected, private online gallery, where you'll have full control over who gets to see those cherished memories. It's like having your very own safe haven on the internet, where you can share with loved ones while keeping those precious moments away from prying eyes.
The gallery will be open for up to 6 months, so I suggest for you to download them to a couple of different locations for backup.

Respect for child's autonomy

As our little ones grow, they begin to develop their own unique personalities and preferences – and that includes how they feel about having their faces splashed across the digital landscape. It's important to respect your wishes and boundaries as their parents, as it lays the foundation for trust and mutual understanding. I've got plenty of creative tricks up my sleeves to capture those precious moments without necessarily showing faces. Whether it's focusing on tiny hands clasped together, little feet toddling along, or capturing candid shots from behind, I'll find the perfect angle that keeps everyone comfortable and happy. 

Let's chat! Before we even pick up the camera, let's talk about your comfort level with online sharing. Your wishes are super important, and I'm here to make sure we're all on the same page.

I'm all about respecting your family's privacy while capturing those unforgettable moments. And although I always do a little happy dance when I get the permission to share the images, in the end your wishes are my command. Seriously! Let's create some magic together while keeping things safe, comfy, and oh-so-special for everyone involved.

Got questions or concerns? Don't hesitate to reach out – I'm here to help, every step of the way.

love, Susanna

Find out more about my work

Hi, I'm Susanna, the woman behind the lens of Nord Stories. I don’t take photos for the gram, for people out there or for myself. I take pictures for you who is in the photo. If a million people say this photo of you is beautiful, it doesn’t count for anything if you who are in it don’t feel the same way.

My mission is to capture your life and the people who mean the most to you, and for you to love yourself in every photograph. When you think back over your life so far, what are your favourite memories? The milestones and birthdays or rather the people and that everyday magic? Perhaps it's the hours spent in the kitchen with your mom when you were little, or how you used to lay on the floor listening to music in your first own home. How you sipped coffee in the morning with your partner, reading the news and holding hands or how you make up crazy games with your kids on rainy days.

I want you to see that your everyday life has an incredible amount of beauty. No need to dress up for a portrait and fake your smiles. Your everyday is much more valuable than a posed image like that could ever be.
