Why Have Professional Family Photos Taken?
Because special milestones deserve special photographs.
Family life is full of special occasions. Falling in love, anniversaries, births, birthdays, moving up to ‘big’ school (and ‘bigger’ school!) - the list goes on and on - and professional family photographs are a lovely way to hold onto those special times for longer than a moment. Photography has become so accessible and we can record everyday moments with the swipe of a phone screen and the click of a button - so much so that sometimes I worry we’re forgetting the value of beautiful, professional photographs to mark a special time or event. But then the clients who contact me for a milestone birthday or anniversary give me faith that families will hanker after gorgeous portraits for years to come.
Because the days are long, but the years are short.
The saying ‘the days are long, but the years are short’ sounds like a cliche except, like all good cliches, it comes with more than a pinch of truth. My boys are now 17 and 15- nearly men! - and they’ve changed in front of my very eyes. Except day to day, I didn’t see it. Your little ones’ childhood is an exhilarating time of growth and transformation, but you can map the progress of time with professional family photographs. I have clients who bring their families back year after year and it’s such a privilege to mark their development from babies to toddlers and beyond.
Because time with your family is time you’ll never forget.
A studio session at Kingshill Studios is, I’m delighted to be told time and time again by happy clients, a lot of fun. On the day of a shoot I’m always greeted by excited faces and families relish spending time with each other in the studio and outside. Posing for portraits is part of the fun but I also make sure to capture the family magic as it unfolds naturally, whether that’s the unmistakable glow of pride on a new father’s face as he picks up his tiny son or a playful elbow as siblings compete for the camera’s attention.
Because children deserve a little magic.
Clouds, nests teddies, cocoons, lambs, fairies, cake smashes - at Kingshill, we offer a huge range of creative, magical shoots. Whether you want to see your precious newborn on a sea of petals or a stylised fine art portrait of your gorgeous little boy, we guarantee that our offerings are a little bit different. We also guarantee that your littles - from newborn to teenagers - will love their Kingshill experience!
Art for Art’s Sake
Photos are meant to be on display, so don’t keep those gorgeous pictures hidden away on a hard drive or a memory stick. I really do believe that having professional family photographs taken gives you that extra ‘push’ to get your prints framed and up on your walls and into physical albums that can be enjoyed for generations. And here at Kingshill we do all the hard work for you; all you need are the measurements for that empty wall space.
And finally, just...because. You have a beautiful family and you love them, and sometimes that’s enough in itself.
