It seems like a long time ago since I wrote a blog post. Most of everyday life has slowed down and business like mine having to press their pause button. However, I've been surprisingly busy, mostly with university work and training courses.
After hearing the most recent government announcement I am very excited once again to get back to the job I love from the 12th April (if all goes to plan). You'll now be able to pre-book your photoshoot from March 29th.
Today I really wanted to touch upon why photography is important, especially in the current climate.
Photography matters. Photography is a way of capturing what is important to us. We have a connection to images, just look at your phone, how often do you snap photographs of your family or even your pets? There is a role for photography in our lives and it speaks to our desires. We often look at photographs to inspire us. Photography also captures precious moments and preserves events, like birthday and marriages, holidays etc. We photograph to document human activity and our human legacy, just like the cave paintings did for us at the very beginning.
Photography can portray emotions like a complex language, express love, sorrow and curiosity. It has the power to move us and make us feel things through its language. More importantly it's an amazing tool to capture family life. How many times do you flick through family albums of family members no longer with us and memorable moments growing up? When we are gone, only photographs will remain to tell our story.
Lockdown has been very tough for many families, we have had to spend months away from each other. I know the first thing I will be doing is visiting family and giving them a long awaited hug. I'll defiantly be taking so many more photographs.
With lockdown easing and restrictions becoming more relaxed my location photoshoot are in full swing. The summer weather is perfect for a photoshoot, the sun is shining and all the local parks are blooming with green life.
Last week, I had the pleasure photographing the Keilty family at Nonsuch Park. It was a beautiful day to shoot, the park has a various areas to capture the family’s character and energy. Along with Mum and dad, I met two children, Piper and Miles. We had fun playing with rockets and the footballs, the photoshoot had a natural flow, exploring the park together and having fun. My aim to capture the candid moments that the family shared, creating a more relaxed and enjoyable experience.
Here are some of my favourite shots from the session.
