Family Photography

So what do you look for in family photography?  Are you worried that you your children may not settle in a studio environment for your family photography session?   Please don’t be concerned.  I’ve been photographing families for ten years now and it’s very rare we have to re-shoot a photography session.

My studio sessions take place in my super light, airy and comfortable studio at the Atkins Building in Hinckley, close to the town centre.  It’s important to me that families enjoy their family photography session and I understand that a photo shoot requires patience, bags of energy and a sense of humour, especially with young children.  Often I will know when the children have had enough and I usually get my best photographs of young children within the first 15 minutes.  After this point in time the wonder and excitement of what’s going on will definitely wear off.  However if your child doesn’t settle immediately I have great patience and understanding and of course a few tricks to get them interested, co-operative and engaged.

It’s important to photograph the whole family together during the family photography session.  It is also a great little start to the family photography session to photograph the children with their parents.  It helps the children to relax, feel comfortable and secure if we take photographs of the whole family together.  Once the children have settled and feel comfortable being photographed I will then ask parents to sit back and relax whilst I take portraits of the children.

If you are thinking about a family photography photo shoot, please call me on 01455 233224 and we can discuss further.
