The Heart of Family Photography
Children aren't very good actors. They wear their hearts on their sleeves, rarely faking their feelings. This raw, unfiltered emotion makes them perfect subjects for family photography. Their happiness and joy radiate through the camera, resulting in beautiful, natural photos that capture their true essence.
The Importance of a Joyful Photography Session
To capture these beautiful, content faces, it's crucial that the kids enjoy the photography session. When children are happy and enjoying themselves, their joy is infectious. It spreads to the parents, resulting in a session filled with laughter, happiness, and love. And a happy family makes for beautiful, natural photos that you'll treasure forever.
Planning the Perfect Session
Planning the perfect family photography session is a team effort. We'll work together to create a session at a time and place that's suitable for everyone. The location (I cover Plymouth & South Hams) needs to be safe for all ages - because no one wants to be telling a toddler "no" every three seconds! It should also be fun and complement your family's unique personality. I'll advise you on how to prepare your kids for their session and how you can make the most of this rare, uninterrupted time together.
During the session, kids will normally lead the way - but If you get stuck, I’ve got buckets of easy to follow, age-appropriate prompts that create gorgeous captured moment. You never need to worry about a child being “on form” for the entire session, I know how unpredictable kids can be, so take a break when you need it, have a drink or snack at the ready and we can just go with the flow.
Creating Unforgettable Experiences
The goal of a family photography session isn't just to take beautiful photos. It's to create an experience - a joyful, unforgettable experience that you and your children will remember forever. It's an opportunity to spend quality time together, to laugh, to play, and to create lasting memories.
