So why do I wonder about this question? Because it is the question that will guide how we plan your session, how I photograph your family and how I can give you what you want at the end. To help us get there, I use a process of four easy steps, that will guide us to the end. This simple process includes Consultation, Photography Session, Reveal and Order Appointment and Delivery/ Installation of your beautiful art pieces.
Stunningly beautiful, authentic photography sessions don’t just happen by accident. We need to put our heads together for a bit and work out what exactly it is you envision. At the consultation we find out what the goals are for the session. What images are most important to you. How you would like them captured (Family Lifestyle or Family Documentary Approach)? Is there a time of year you were thinking? Or maybe a new baby is on the way, and you want to capture the sweetness of one of her first days with all the family at home? The consultation is where you will tell me what it is you really want me to capture… the essence of your family. From there, we need to move on to what you want to do with your images.
These beautiful moments of intimacy between your family, as they grow and learn and laugh, deserve to be admired in your home – by you and your children. Studies have demonstrated that beautiful family portraiture displayed within homes with children has a significant positive effect on children’s self esteem and feeling of belonging. Children and family are your greatest joy and masterpiece. Their images need to be somewhere where they can be seen and enjoyed, over and over… Some people ask about digital images when they get in touch, which we absolutely offer, but I have found that often, with digital files, clients post them on social media and then plop “them’, their usb stick, in a desk draw, in line to be printed with the 3,487 photos on their phone. The majority of my clients want the full service, they want heirloom, quality, bespoke pieces that will last generations and will look stunning on their walls and in their albums.
During our Consultation process, we will explore exactly how you want to display and enjoy the images of your greatest loves. Maybe it’s gorgeous custom Wall Art, beautiful heirloom quality Albums, or classic printed framed images… The options are as varied and unique as you and your family.
