As a mum of two small children, I know that life is busy. Little faces change quickly and that is why it is so important to embrace the moment and capture those memories so that you can continue to treasure them.
"Cherish The Golden Days"
Here are some of the many reasons you shouldn't put off booking your family photography session this year.
1. There's always someone missing from the photo
Possibly one of the most obvious and important reasons to have a family session, but oh so true! Granted, smart phone cameras are getting better, but the quality of self facing lenses still isn't great. When was the last time you put a framed selfie on the wall? When you book me as your photographer, not only will I capture the whole family together, but you will get images that you can display proudly in your home.
2. You can be yourselves
Whilst I know it's nice to have a photo of everyone smiling at the camera, this isn't what I'm about. Don't get me wrong, I absolutely will get this photo for you, after all it will make the perfect gift for Granny, but my images capture so much more than this. I photograph the fun, the giggles, the cuddles and even the tantrums! I want your children to look back at these photos in 10-20 years time and see themselves for who they used to be.
The beauty of these relaxed sessions is that there is no stress. You don't have to worry if your children are "uncooperative". Let them be them. Play with them, dance with them and laugh with them. Who needs cheese when you have authentically beautiful moments?
3. You can make a family day of it
My full family sessions can last up to 1-2 hours if you want them to and we can go wherever you'd like! Do what you enjoy and I'll come along to document it. Whether it's going to the beach, climbing a mountain or even staying at home playing board games, I love seeing families enjoying being themselves and forgetting that I'm even there. Even better, if you're doing something you love, you will make the best memories.
4. Life changes too quickly
Children don't stay little for long, they change in the blink of an eye! Taking a photo of a moment is the closest you will get to freezing that memory and preserving it forever.
If this year has taught us anything its that we should embrace opportunities when we get the chance. Children grow up and families change, so what better way of celebrating that than with a set of photos that will last a lifetime.
5. You will be creating future history
Have you ever looked back at photos from your childhood? I'm sure that nearly all of us have enjoyed doing this with our families. Looking at these images is a right of passage - give your future children and even grandchildren the opportunity to reflect on who your family is today. My classic, timeless style ensures that these images will never go out of fashion.
Still not convinced? Or are you just waiting for the right time? Please please please don't put things off just because the timing may not be perfect. I can't tell you how many times I've thought about having photos taken "when I lose weight", and my clients often say this themselves. The truth is, there will always be a reason NOT to do something... you just need to remind yourself of the many more reasons why you SHOULD do it!
A family photoshoot is not just an opportunity to have a lovely hour or two together, it’s an investment in the future–your children’s future. Get in touch and book your family shoot with me today.
