A Walk in the Park with Bear and Dragon Photography

For ages now I’ve been wanting to get professional family photos taken. Ok, maybe not ages – more like 4 years. But still, it feels like ages, especially since my research into child photographers in Brussels turned up mostly fake poses and cheesy pictures. In an unexpected turn of events, I recently came across two great professional family and child photographers in Brussels and was invited for complimentary photo sessions with both for review. Of course I said YES!!! I’ll be doing a more in-depth review of both in September because, let’s face it, we’ve all checked out (at least mentally) for the summer by now – or is that just me?

But, until the full reviews are ready (keep your eyes peeled in September; there will be some perks for BXL Sprouts readers!), today I want to introduce you to Nicole Gustafsson of Bear & Dragon Photography.

My family had the pleasure of meeting up with her in Woluwe Park last weekend for a laid-back photo shoot on what was a gorgeous, sunny morning.

Nicole managed to capture some great shots despite a grumpy, sleepy toddler and the slippery wet grass from early morning dew. Here’s a sneak peek at some of our beautiful pictures.

Grumpy? Who said I was grumpy?

If you’d like to have an outdoor photo shoot, I would highly recommend making the most of this gorgeous weather and getting in touch with Nicole for a summer shoot.

Capturing memories

If you’d like to  see more of Nicole’s work and find some of her picks of activities for little ones in Brussels (she’s the mama of a toddler herself) you really should check out her blog – Life of Bear and Dragon – and of course, her website.


Disclaimer: I received a complimentary photo shoot for the purpose of this review. No other compensation was given, and I was not obligated to write a positive review. All opinions are my own and I only recommend products I feel especially good about.

  1. I booked a session with Nicole a month ago (in the Woluwe Park as well, one of the photos is on her website, the buttercups field :) ) and I would just like to add that not only do I think she takes great photos, but she also created an atmosphere where I didn’t have a feeling a was being photographed (I don’t like being photographed and I told her), she gave me a few tips, what might look good, what we could try but then she left us alone to play and was there to record it. She also gives you different options for printing your photos if you wish so. Plus, she’s a really lovely person! :) I would recommend her anytime!!

  2. Interesting post! This discussion often comes up with my mum friends and like you, we couldn’t find anyone until last year! I wonder if the other one you found is the one we have been to! I look forward to the next post :)
