“The greatest legacy we can leave our children is happy memories.”
Family photography is about producing an everlasting legacy that can be handed down from generation to generation. As Og Mandino quoted "The greatest memories we can leave our children, are happy memories".
All I have every known are beautiful photographs and I want to be able to help you create your own memories with the most beautiful and memorable of images, that will catch a moment that can never be repeated. Because, children change everyday and what you see today, you won't see tomorrow. This is why photography plays a big part in capturing those moments, that will trigger that happy moment in your minds.
With my own family, we look back fondly at photograph albums and chuckle at the fun and laughter and special moments captured, that will never be taken away from us.
You may not know or understand which images you prefer to hang up in your home. I advise that before the session we discuss what type of images you would like to see before we plan for either studio or outdoors. Planning the session also includes planning what you will wear and I have some ideas on Pinterest which you can view here.
Whether you chose to have a studio session or outdoor session, the experience will be the same.
How soon should I book?
My family photo sessions take place Monday to Saturday between 9am and 5pm and Sundays between 9.30am and 3pm. To get your favoured date and time, it is always best to book as early as possible. Studio space especially can get booked up quite quickly.
Occasionally I will run Mini Sessions for those of you unable to accommodate a full studio or outdoor session. Dates for Mini Sessions will always be advertised here on my website and social media platforms.
Clothing for the session?
Family outfits are best kept simple so that they don't date. A plain white top and jeans, or a simple dress with very little pattern. The more classic the better. When choosing the family outfits, always think about a spare back up in case of accidents on route (or get dressed at the session). I plan our family outfits for the photoshoot by laying all the colours together on the bed - if you are going for a colour to match the walls in your home when it's printed then think like this: - you might have a blue wall and an autumn brown, gold, yellow or orange tones in the outfits could work to complement this wall. You won't all need to wear these colours, but could for example wear blue jeans and a bright top in that colour, another could wear a blue dress with flowers with the orange tones. The key element is to keep all the TONES the same - i.e. not one bright and the other pale. If unsure you can place all the outfits on your bed, take a camera snap and send to me to help. I also have some suggestions on my Pinterest link below.
