Travel Session

I’m gonna take you to the best spots in Amsterdam and you’ll take home some great personalized postcards. 

Hey there! I’m Alê Araújo, a Brazilian photographer currently living in Amsterdam with my dear husband and our beloved cats, Amélie and Lola. I started studying photography in 2007 because I had an unfulfilling job at the time, and I needed something creative in my life. That’s when I felt in love with analog photography.


After moving to Ukraine, in 2014, I decided to create a blog as a personal project to share cultural information about Ukraine and my life as an expat living in eastern Europe, and it has opened some doors. Long story short, I end up working as a freelance lifestyle photographer from 2017 on. At the beginning of 2019, my family and I moved to the Netherlands, where we’ll be living for the upcoming years.

I like to create images with soft natural light and desaturated colors, inspired by analog photography. I always try to show tenderness and lightness in my work. As for the poses, I usually try to capture candid and spontaneous moments, but I can give some directions if needed (specially in portrait sessions).

I majored in Pedagogy, and I find it fascinating how fast kids develop in their first years of life. That’s why I love photographing babies. It’s amazing to document them growing up and notice all the things they learn in such a short period.

A lot of my references in photography come from music and movies, and it has always been a great source of inspiration for me. I grew up watching music videos and movies from the ’80s and ’90s and staring at LP covers while listening to songs from this period. That means I am totally open for creative commissions, so if you want to incorporate some reference in your photos we can discuss about it.

If you like my photography style, feel free to get in touch. If you have questions, I recommend reading the F.A.Q. first, maybe there's an answer already.
