3 reasons why family photographs matter


Truth told, I have never heard of anybody complaining about having too many family photographs. In fact it’s the opposite: most say that they don’t have enough pictures of them together.

We believe family matters and we think having photographs taken is one of the most important things you can do together. Here’s three reasons why we think it matters so much:

1. Remember the now

Our lives are so crazy jam-packed with activities that we often don’t have time to stop and appreciate the ‘now’. If its been a while (or perhaps never) since you captured your family then you probably need to fix that. Remember it’s for now, but it’s also forever.

2. Professional photographs matter

We are huge advocates of using our iPhones to capture images (from dance shows and family outings and birthday parties) but that is just not the same as professionally taken family photographs. Not least because the quality isn’t quite there (sorry to break that illusion!) but also because of the skill of the person behind the lens.

With a professional photographer you have someone whose job it is to photograph you as a family. Someone who is on your side armed with their toolkit of enthusiasm, lighting, training and talent to make you look a million dollars.

3. Your family shoot will provide you with forever memories

It’s truly personal, utterly bespoke and will always make you remember (and just think how many bonus points you’ll get from the grandparents when you gift them a framed print from your shoot!)
