I photograph a lot of children and I’m so glad to say that most of the time I get to photograph the whole family, mum and dad included. It’s so important to be in your photographs too. it’s something I’ve also loved doing. As a photographer, it’s not for the faint-hearted, It’s not easy! But it’s worth the extra mile. Capturing the real relationships within a family is my goal, not just a portrait of how you look, but how you feel about each other too. The pride a mum feels when her little ones gives her the biggest hug. Or the joy a dad feels when his kids laugh so loudly when they play. These moments are priceless. These photographs are so important for your children when they grow up. They won’t remember so much from this time, but these photographs will remind them of how much they are adored, and of how much they loved their parents too…particularly important perhaps when they are teenagers?! Anyway, here’s a fabulous family I photographed just after midsummer.
