When asked by potential clients about my style of photography, I tend to describe it as "photojournalistic" or documentary style. Which is all very well and good, but what exactly do I mean by that?
Primarily, a photojournalistic or documentary style of photography will show the subject in its environment as it is - no bells and whistles, no formal posing - what you see and do is what you get. For me as a photographer, that means I spend time with your family just hanging out. It may be in your home, doing everyday things like making lunch or playing games. Perhaps it's in a favourite place - at the beach or a local reserve like the photos above (from this family photo session.) The intention behind this style of photography is to capture spontaneous moments that would otherwise be missed.
Having said that, everyone loves a good family portrait that can be popped in a frame on the wall, printed onto a canvas and, of course, shared with other family - grandmas and grandpas just love getting photos in the mail and who can blame them? In my family photography sessions, I always include some time specifically for portraits as well - I'd like to think that these are still informal in style - nothing forced, but with results that can be printed, framed, shared for years to come.
Currently I offer two family photography packages. You can see more information about those here. My portrait package could perhaps be described as an extended mini session - the session time is generally a couple of hours, whereas my lifestyle package gives you coverage for up to four hours. You could almost think of this second package as documenting "a day in the life" of your family. The lifestyle package is also a great option for special family events like birthdays. With each package, your photos are presented to you on a USB, with high resolution files suitable for printing and low resolution files suitable for sharing on social media.
If you have any questions about my family photography, including my packages and pricing - get in touch! Send me an email via firstname.lastname@example.org or fill in the contact form here. If you like what you see and want to make a booking for March onwards, that's great too, I'd love to hear from you, don't be shy!
