Visiting Portugal: a family vacation in Lagos, Algarve

Portugal and Algarve are trendy now. We're happy with that.

We love welcome people visiting our country, our cities, our beaches. The cherry on the top of the cake, is by living here, to be part of some of this people holidays.

Ronald is also a photographer in Washington DC, US. He founded us on Instagram and asked if we could register some of their family time visiting Algarve. They wanted to have some pictures taken in a typical portuguese beach town and after on a beautiful beach. So, this time the choice was Lagos. We had a great time together. Their little boy help us a lot playing all around. We end up in Camilo beach, just for us! 

Hope this brings a fresh summer vibe we're missing already!

A super cute family session in Quinta do Lago, Faro, Portugal

Yes, the wedding season has begun. Meanwhile we could't deny Tatiana request: "let's do another session! This time we have our little girl and another belly!".

It's the other side of Lapela work. We love to photograph happy families and their free interaction. It's like photograph love in pure form. Looks simple but it's not. Specially when we have a non stop child!

Let it snow

A nossa estreia. A primeira vez que a Lapela foi fotografar fora do país.

Não resistimos ao convite do Nuno e da Inês para irmos ter com eles a Londres e lá passarmos juntos um fim de semana, na cidade que os acolheu acabadinhos de sair da faculdade. Pudemos conhecer também Cambridge, onde visitámos as suas famosas universidades e os canais. Para além disso fomos brindados com a "besta de leste"... basicamente frio, frio, e mais frio, que apesar de ter atrapalhado um pouco os planos, acabou por nos brindar com a neve! ai a neve!! (o Miguel cumpriu o seu sonho de menino).

Em breve eles estarão novamente por terras algarvias, para comemorar o seu SIM com a família e amigos, certamente num clima bem mais ameno.

Enfim... vejam e pronto. Façam play.


Our very first time we went shoot abroad.

We couldn't resist the invitation by Nuno and Inês to fly to UK and spend a weekend in the city that received  them right after they finish college. They guide us to London and Cambridge where we could see the famous universities and the canals. We were blessed by lots of cold weather that turn things a bit difficult, but fortunately we had snow instead of rain. 

Soon they'll be in their homeland: Algarve - Portugal to say YES in front of their families and friends. For sure in a warmer day.

Have a look. Play the song.
