When should I book family photographs is a common question. When is a good time of year? How old should my children be? Should I wait until they’re walking? Should I wait until I lose some weight? Should I wait until I have some money put aside? Should I wait until they’re a bit older? Should I wait until I get my hair coloured? Should I wait until I get a chance to go clothes shopping?

When Should I Book Family Photographs When Should I Book Family Photographs

The honest answer as to when you should book family photography is an easy one. The time is now. So often do I hear that people want to wait until (insert variety of reasons).

  1. Until we get done having an extension because we won’t know where to put the photographs.
  2. Until we’re back from holiday and have caught some sun (really bad idea as not everyone tans at the same rate as the rest of the family).
  3. Until I (he/we) lose some weight. (I bet you have clothes right now for when you lose a stone, and you’ve had them at least 3 years).
  4. Until their new teeth come in.
  5. Until they’re walking etc.

When Should I Book Family Photographs

The list goes on and on. When should I book family photographs? Now, the time is now. Life keeps moving forward and if social media teaches us anything is that On This Day comes around faster and faster. All other objections are really about being overwhelmed at the prospects of how to go about it.

If you’re wondering about seasons, I’ve photographed families in every season. There are always lovely locations and light to be had. Winter lighting is actually one of my favourites. There is something so super sumptuous about winter light. Also it’s great for little ones when bedtime does not coincide with the golden hour.

Spring offers the rebirth of life in our world. Daffodils, bluebells, azeleas and cow parsley are all trumpets that the days are in fact longer. These flowers can give a beautiful backdrop and add amazing colour to your family photography.

The lighting this time of year is stunning and is at peak well before bedtime. Your family photo does not have to be Christmas themed. Just because it’s on your Christmas card does not mean you have to wear a Santa hat. Family Christmas Photo

Wear what makes you look your best and your family will beam through. A Christmas family photo is not just a gift for your family, it’s a gift for future you and for your children. Family photography is the most precious thing. It captures not just who the children are, and their toothless grins and adorable dimples, but ourselves when we are the youngest we’re ever going to be.

We always think of our children as ours, that they belong to us. But what we often forget is they think we belong to them. Children adore having family portraits. We all enjoy having photos with our parents to look back on. In every session I ensure each child is photographed with their parents on their own.Christmas Family Photo

No one is ever too old or too cool to have their photo taken with their parents. Babies through to teenagers, they’re all still just kids. The love is mutual as are the memories. Yours deserved to be captured and preserved for always.

Your Christmas family photo will become more than a gift, it will become a treasure.

Twin Lifestyle Photography Surrey

Twin Lifestyle Photography Surrey • Having twins is a blessing and a challenge. Twin photography Lifestyle Surrey is a particular challenge when they never seem to look at you at the same time, or sometimes even at all. Whether you have identical or fraternal twins your dynamic duo are individuals with unique personalities. But in Surrey twin photography is possible when you have such beautiful countryside where they can run free. Twin Lifestyle Photography Surrey

Twin Lifestyle Photography is challenging but not impossible. The way I love to conduct any session is to allow the children to play and capture them then. Chasing each other, blowing dandelions or throwing sticks into a pond or puddle, allowing children to be children gives you the most genuine photographs.

Twin Lifestyle Photography Surrey

Twins are connected in a way other siblings are not. It’s like they know it in their souls. They know each other as well as they know themselves. Born with a buddy twins always have a mate. Twin Lifestyle Photography Surrey

Yet with twin photography sessions, it’s always important to make sure you get the individual portraits as well. Portraits on their own and portraits with parents. They will always be twins but won’t always be side-by-side.

Every twin has things that they like sharing and thing they don’t. They’ve already shared a womb so it is nice to no have to share all their portraits too. I also like to make sure to get children with their parents individually whenever possible. Toddler twins do not always cooperate but when they do it can be magic.
