If you’re anything like me, you will look at your family and think, how have we all changed so much? Where has the time gone? Families are never the same, we are always growing and changing. You always say you’re going to photograph the next milestone, but it comes and goes and before you know it, you still haven’t done it. Don’t miss this opportunity.
Not only is Kate an exceptionally talented photographer, she is also the loveliest person to be around and makes you feel so comfortable in front of the camera. With children you never know whether they’ll be in the right mood to be photographed; however Kate is so patient and warm that mine have always had great fun on shoots, which really shows in the final images. Kate is great at directing you in a way that enables her to capture the most natural of shots, and I can honestly say I’ve never been disappointed; in fact the only problem is trying to shortlist the best images!
5 reasons why you need family photographs
1. Time flies, capture it.
No day is ever the same and time passes us by so quickly. Newborns very quickly turn into children, children become parents, parents become grandparents. Having your family photograph taken is like stopping time and one day these photographs will be treasured more than anything else.
2. Family photoshoots are fun!
Whilst a family portrait session is to create a photographs, it’s also really fun! I used to dread having my photograph taken and getting my family in a picture was whole different story. And so it became my mission to make all family photoshoots relaxed and fun with plenty of time allowed to guarantee you get exactly what you want.
3. Family photos make great home and office décor.
In the digital age, we no longer have our photographs printed. It’s great for Facebook, but how many photographs do you have stored on your hard drive? No matter how amazing technology gets, there are also some fundamental limitations that will more or less always be in the way of smartphones. In particular, the laws of physics are notoriously difficult to bypass. Having your photograph taken professionally means that you can create stunning wall montages and beautifully framed prints for your home or office.
4. Give the gift of smiles and good memories.
Nothing can be a more personal and sincere gift than a family photograph. I once gave my grandma a pair of expensive earrings and a photograph of me with my boyfriend. To this day, her most treasured gift from me is still that photograph. It taught me that anyone can buy a tangible item, but photographs are priceless.
5. Family portraits are an investment.
When you invest in quality portraiture you are investing in something that will be valuable for a lifetime. Most of us spend so much on things with little or no value but fail to invest in the things that mean the most. Seriously, in an emergency what would you choose to save, your family portrait or your television?
Every family I photograph tell me that their portraits are one of their most treasured possessions. I know my personal family portraits are. Make the time and you will never regret it.
