It seems like a long time since I have been writing a blog and sorry I have been so quiet recently. Though most of everyday life has slowed down and business like mine having to press there pause button, I've been surprisingly busy, mostly with university work and training courses.
After hearing the most recently 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, it speaks to our desires, we often look at photographs to inspire us. Photography also captures precious moments, preserving events, like birthday and marriages, holidays etc. Photographs document human activity and our legacy. Just like cave painting did for us at the very being. 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 document family life. How many times do you flick through family albums of family members no longer with us and memorable moments growing up?
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 some many photographs. In the next few weeks I will be preparing a very special package aimed at capturing your family in a documentary style, classic and candid. If you would like to be the first notified drop me a message.
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.
If you are interested in booking a photoshoot at your local park drop me a message and I will happily answer any questions that you may have. The full family package is £150 an includes 10 digital images and the mini session is £70 and includes 5 digitals images.
