Family Photography

So what’s family photography all about?

Family photography is about capturing a moment in time.

So why do it, well because time slips away without us even noticing. That 2 month old baby quickly becomes 2 years old, and 2 decades later they’re leaving the nest to start their own family. Believe me, blink of an eye stuff!

This is why you should book your family photo session now – today, not tomorrow. So capture this moment in time before it’s gone, and insure your precious family memories. Your children and grandchildren will be so grateful you did, so they can show the photos to their children and grandchildren. Because photos, and memories, matter. Invest now because your family photography improves with age, and increases in value year after year. Also family photos make us happy, and your children feel good about themselves when they see themselves in photos, proudly displayed in the family home.

Why a professional portrait photographer?

Of course, if family photography were as simple as grabbing a camera and demanding a chorus of ‘cheese!’, we’d all be doing it. But it’s not that simple.

Family members are not professional models, they are inexperienced in front of the camera and need professional guidance. They need to feel comfortable and at ease. A professional photographer will guide you on posing, expressions, props and clothing. You portraits should capture you looking relaxed and natural. Many professional portraits may look ‘candid’, but you be sure a lot of work has gone into making them look this natural.

A professional photographer controls the tone of the shoot, plus he know’s his way around a camera. Your photographer knows his equipment inside out, so the technical side of the shoot won’t interfere, and the photos are taken quickly in a seemingly effortless way.
