Most of the families I photograph have children under the age of 6. That’s no surprise really, having family photos taken is normally on the to-do list when your children are babies and often we don’t get round to it until they are pre-schoolers! But strangely I don’t get that many enquiries from parents with children over the age of about 10. I think by then it seems more of an effort to organise a photo shoot as the children probably aren’t so up for it! And when your children aren’t changing month by month, it’s easy for it to slip to the bottom of the ever-growing to-do list.
But I think it’s so important to be photographed as a family at every stage of your childrens’ lives. When your children are all grown up and have left home, you’ll love to have fantastic photos of them to look through and remember exactly how they were at every stage of their childhood.
So I was over the moon when this lovely mum contacted me, and asked me to do a family photo shoot with her 2 teenagers. There were probably a hundred other things the kids would rather have been doing on a this morning, but I was pleased that they admitted afterwards that they had actually quite enjoyed it! They are such a lovely family and the siblings are a real credit to their parents.
Thanks for stopping by!
