Family. It’s everything. But how many photos do you have of you as a family? Not many I’m guessing. There’s always someone on the other side of the camera, operating it, whilst the subjects of the photos start to get lock jaw smiling for the photo. Family photography doesn’t have to be contrived, or static. You don’t have to sit still and smile for the camera. Love a wintery walk on the beach with the dog? Great, let’s get our wellies on and go. New baby in the family? Let me come over to the house and photograph this special time. Bluebell season and a walk in the woods? Sounds perfect. Whether it’s in the great outdoors or at home, a special occasion or just a regular Sunday, I believe that capturing the beauty and honesty of everyday lives is what family photography is all about.
I’d love to chat about ideas for your own family shoot!
