Here in Croxley Green in Hertfordshire, I live in a pretty family-friendly area. I guess anyone could say that. It’s a feeling as much as anything, a feeling based on where you personally land in the ‘family’ life cycle. With two young daughters, one already at school and an increasing circle of nodding-terms parent acquaintances, I already understand how fast this period zips by. As in … really fast.
Our children grow up. Our parents grow older. But the speed of change can be a little bewildering. Will we remember? Are we gathering lasting memories (yes, despite what we sometimes may feel)? Are we catching, noting and even holding onto very precious moments in time? Realistically, those touchingly funny or achingly sweet moments won’t be captured by a professional photographer. No. You will capture them in your memory and maybe … if lucky or you can persuade the little ones into a quick, slightly less authentic re-enactment … you can get the phone out for a snap. But what the professional family photographer will do is capture the spirit of that time, the essence of that period with the 5th birthday party or the family reunion or the yearned for newborn baby. And they should do it truly beautifully. That’s where I try to help create something real and lasting. Something to connect you emotionally once again. And again.
I don’t follow rules other than to be technically perfect (but that should be a given). I am so happy and willing to talk with anyone about the kind of family gallery they want to create. Whatever style you prefer, whether it be under soft lights, at home in the living room, candidly running about in the garden or picnicking in the park, I will capture lasting memories to cherish. And we’ll do it in a relaxed, unhurried and fun way.
