Family Photography Sessions
One of the things we always seem to hear from people is “I wish I had taken the time to get a picture of us all together before my kids grew up and flew the nest!” While it can seem like a daunting task; getting everyone organised, bribing the kids to behave and choosing a time that suits. Getting family photography done is actually really fun and easy!
What to expect at your family photography session
In our family photography sessions, our aim is to make everyone relaxed and comfortable in front of the camera. Even if that means jumping around and making ourselves look like fools! A family photography session generally involves us taking photos of the whole family, then as many different family combinations as possible. When it’s time to photograph your children, you’ll often see us pulling silly faces behind the camera in the hopes of getting cheeky smiles shining on their faces! We don’t mind though, it’s our job to try to get the most fun and natural photos of you all as we can! We generally end up with a huge selection of photos for you to choose from. And, because we know that you know your family best, we don’t edit out the silly faces. Sometimes these are the best photographs to have, as they show the true character of that person!
What to wear to your session
Our favourite time of the day for outdoor family photography is in the early evening during daylight savings or early afternoon in winter. On a sunny day, these times have beautiful, soft light that looks amazing in the final photo! We also recommend that you wear smart casual clothes for the session. Matching colours isn’t necessary (think 90’s denim on denim!), but if you can coordinate some parts of your outfits it helps to give the photos a nice sense of cohesion.
So, in our experience, the hardest part of organising a family photography session is trying to choose the photo that you love the most! Don’t look back and wish you’d taken the time to get a family photo done. Get in touch with us and we’ll help you create lasting memories of your family!
Sarah and Ryan were recommended to us by word of mouth and we could not be happier with their service. They suggested a great location and were so relaxed, friendly and patient for our beautiful family photos. Will definitely be in touch with them again. -Sally Elliot
