FAMILY - WHERE JOY + MAYHEM CAN ‘CHEERFULLY CO-EXIST’ | PERTH FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHER
THESE WORDS FROM THIS BEAUTIFUL MUM STOPPEd ME IN MY TRACKS AND MADE ME WONDER - WHICH STYLE OF FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHY WILL FAMILIES TREASURE THE MOST WHEN THEY LOOK BACK AT THEIR ALBUMS? ‘TRADITIONAL’, ‘LIFESTYLE’ OR ‘DOCUMENTARY’ FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHY?
I was actually planning to use this gallery to BLOG about how special it is to have a family photography session in winter… but then…this beautiful mum messaged me with these words that stopped me in my tracks and really made me think deeply about the important work we are doing in family photography. And it made me wonder which ‘style’ of photography families will treasure the most in the future… traditional, lifestyle or documentary?
My goal for every session is that the family will enjoy the experience and that when they see their gallery they will really ‘feel’ them. Traditional portraits are important (and we capture these at every session) but what I think families will treasure more, are the images that really capture authentic love and connection and the joy and mayhem or whatever it is that makes your family - your family.
I describe our style as ‘Lifestyle Family Photography’ and you can read more about that here. But to be honest, I think our sessions are part ‘Traditional’, part ‘Lifestyle’ and part ‘Documentary’. See if you can identify all three styles in the gallery below.
It makes me so happy to give a full gallery of images that show an authentic representation of families in their ‘season of life’. If you would like to find out more about our family sessions, please feel free to get in touch, or click the button below to find out more…
