Many couples that book us for their wedding photography end up contacting us in the following years for newborn and family photography. As our name suggests (Photographiez Votre Histoire – Photography Your Story) we love seeing and photographing a family along the years and being able to capture their family story.
As with our wedding photography our family photography style is very natural and relax, we want to capture you and the family as you are. We love outside locations and prefer natural light.
Here is a couple of things to think about for you family photoshoot:
Lighting can be something that could be as simple as the time of year, the luck of the day or the time of day. We love getting out of the studio for family portraits as we love to capture families in a natural setting, however it’s a good idea to think about the sort of lighting you would like before deciding on a time and place.
We love it when families are themselves in the portraits. Let the kids run a muck have fun together and let us capture the moment. Sometimes the best portraits are when the family does what they enjoy. It could be playing at the park, having a picnic or whatever you like to do as a family. Feel free to have a chat with us about your ideas, we love trying new thing’s.
Although we do like you to be yourself it is important to think about what you wear. There is nothing worse than getting the photos back and realising that the clothes weren’t very flattering. Do a dress rehearsal and get the family to give you feedback (or a good friend). You can also bring a number of changes and we are happy to give you advice.
If you would like any further information on our family portraits give us a call.
