The importance of family photoshoots

Parents always say that their children grow up too quickly so it’s crucial to capture the moments before they pass. Family photoshoots are the perfect opportunity to create memories that will last a lifetime. Your children can look back and marvel how young they once were, and you can reminisce about the days when you had fewer wrinkles and less grey hairs!

Lifestyle shoots in the great outdoors bring a wealth of things to interact with, different backgrounds and ensure every shoot is different. I always recommend we go somewhere that you would frequently visit as a family. Your children are familiar with the area allowing them to relax easily. And if you have a four-legged family member, feel free to bring them as well!

Phone snaps are handy but they don’t lend themselves well to taking group photos of your entire family. And as parents are well aware, your children always act differently with other people than with you. Photoshoots are the perfect time to relax the rules and let your children be themselves. I have a wealth of tips, tricks and techniques to bring out the true personalities of your children! Most of my techniques work on parents too, who always love watching me with their children, knowing that they will be treasuring the images for years to come.

Statistics show that we are taking more photos than ever but so few of those photos are printed and adorn the walls of your family home. I offer a range of wall-art to ensure you have the perfect way to show off your favourite photos of your most treasured people.

After your photoshoot you’ll be able to visit my studio to select your images to adorn your home and share with all your visitors.

Once you book your lifestyle session I’ll send you a leaflet filled with info on what to expect, what to wear and what to bring on your shoot, to ensure we make the most of our time together!
