Capture an emotion and preserve this moment forever.

Book a photo shoot to frame your memories in a unique work of art made by a boutique photographer

About the photographer

My name is Viola Carnelos and I am a photographer specialised in fine art child potrait and maternity photography.

What I love the most about my art is the opportunity I have to connect with people and capture their inner essence in a shot that will be admired for a long time.

Being a photographer is not only a profession, but also a responsibility, because what I capture with my camera will be associated with a particular moment in someone’s life.

The beginning of a new life, the expectation for it, the bond of a family framed in a photo that will make other people smile and feel good. This is what I work for.

I had seen maternity photos in the past and always thought they were a lovely memento of such a special time, but I didn’t think I would ever have the opportunity to do this myself. Thank goodness for Viola! Even after the photo shoot, I didn’t quite know how the images would turn out – I couldn’t imagine how things looked through the other side of the lens – but we were blown away by the end results, which far exceeded our expectations. Viola’s credentials not only as a photographer, but also a woman and mother, made me feel very at ease throughout our shoot – I felt relaxed walking around with my distorted shape completely uncovered! I have felt anything but elegant throughout this pregnancy, especially now, in this 3rd trimester, but Viola’s skills have produced elegant, tasteful images, which I know I will continue to be proud of and gaze at fondly in years to come. I am so grateful to have such a beautiful reminder of us building our family.

Doing a photo shooting with Viola Carnelos is like a meeting with your own inner self. The camera’s lens becomes a mirror through which Viola can capture the best smile, the very intense gaze and the most intimate feelings. Out in the streets of Rome, Nicosia and London, you forget the people around you, you don’t notice whether it’s raining or the sun is shining. Time passes unnoticed. The places Viola chooses as settings for the shootings are hidden gems, the perfect background for very special and romantic pictures. Every session is a source for new emotions. Thanks to Viola Carnelos’ professional touch, the photos are unrivalled: a mixture of art and magic.

The weather on the scheduled photo shoot day wasn’t that great, but when I saw the images I couldn’t believe how well they turned out! Each one of them is just perfect! Such a soft light, which makes us all look so beautiful. The portraits are natural with a high impact and my daughter looks like a model! Thank you for creating this amazing memory Viola. We will treasure the photos forever!

Since many years, Viola Carnelos has been the official photographer of our family. She followed me during the pregnancy, the birth of my second child Yannis and in many other occasions. I always refer to Viola with enthusiasm and trust for every important family event or even only for capturing a single moment in our life, perhaps in a very beloved place. Every time, Viola can catch and interpret our different personalities and the essence of our relations with simplicity and a distinctive artistic sensibility. Her work is a precious memory, which can transmit across time a profound emotion and lots of charm.

Viola is an absolute professional; she is punctual, she knows how to deal with children (and with parents as well), her pictures are amazing. We were looking for something formal but at the same time as much natural as possible. We are very happy with the pictures she has taken of our family, and look forward to have them printed!
