Are you thinking about having family photographs taken over the summer? You may have already chosen your portrait photographer but maybe struggling with where you might have them done? Let's be honest, you don't want to end up with some boring family stock photo on your wall. Let me encourage you to think beyond the confines of a studio, because if you're choosing a lifestyle photographer, like me, then location is going to be super important.
There are a two reasons I think it's important we think about the location we have portraits taken. Firstly, we spend our time living life and gaining experiences at different places. They are personal and we form bonds, make memories and live life. Secondly, it embeds your story in a place. A white or black background gives no sense of place beyond a photographic studio. When you photos are printed and displayed, place and person combine and create a more powerful narrative.
These places might be obvious. Some might stimulate broader thinking. My top 5 family-friendly places to go for your family photography session are...
You've got the people, now let's get the place chosen and we can have a grand adventure and tell stories like they should be told, full of colour, vibrancy and life.
Don't forget we've got a special offer on up until the end of August 2017, subject to availability. Read more about our offer here on an earlier blog post.
No two stories are the same. Each one is as unique as the people that make up the family. Celebrate everything that family is about and tell your visual story so that in years to come you can pass the story on and look back with joy on the journey.
