Family portraits are such an important part of our lives. A recent survey asked people what items they would try to rescue from a burning house. It comes as no surprise that a huge number of people would go for treasured family portraits, family photographs contained in an album or hanging on the wall.
My own kids love to look at old family pictures when they are visiting their grandmother. I love to hear comments like ‘Did Dad really used to have hair like that?’ or ‘Wow I look just like my mum when she was little’.
This is our history, where our family came from and where it fits into the wider world. Old family portraits are an opportunity to be reminded of and remember fondly those no longer with us, through a single moment captured.
We will work with you to create your own personal piece of fine art to take pride of place in your home, and which will become a treasured heirloom for your children, and your childrens’s children.
Why not make a real event of it? It’s always great when we can involve extended family such as grandparents, uncles and aunts, or even the family dog? Either at home or a favourite location we will create something that will be bespoke for you.
Before your session, we will have a chat and discuss exactly what you would like to get from your session – remember, the most important people at your photography session and you and your family so we will go out of our way to make the experience unforgettable.
Our family photography sessions are designed to be fun, creative and dynamic, and a great experience that will stay with you for many years to come.
