Answer? 52,500! That’s right, I’ve met more than FIFTY THOUSAND people over the last 12 years through my role as a wedding photographer and, because of my documentary approach, there’s a good chance I will have photographed a large percentage of that number too. Which brings me on to the point of this blog, which is that when people ask me ‘do you do family photography’ then the answer is unequivocally yes. Why? Because whether I’m photographing a bride and groom at a wedding or a family walking through the woods for me, it’s all about people. People enjoying themselves, laughing, sharing emotions, making memories. 52,500 people just doing what they do!
Although my approach remains documentary, I do offer two types of family photography, dependent on the type of imagery you’re hoping to achieve. Either a selection of individual images, captured during a location shoot OR a ‘Families @ Play‘ commission, where I spend anything from a couple of hours through to an entire day with families, photographing their ‘everyday’. From mealtimes to story time and all those treasured interactions in between times, my role is to photograph you and your family doing what you do best; being you.
It’s been a pleasure to photograph so many families and, for some, it’s been on more than one occasion. A wedding, the first born and then again as the family unit grows in number. I’ve also been invited back to photograph the same children several years apart, as the eagle eyed among you may spot with the images of the 3 lads in the back of the Land Rover below. Come back in another 5 years time and I think they might need a bigger vehicle!
