Winter 2019 was a busy time for me so I’m just getting around to posting some of the beautiful families I had the privilege to photograph. I always love looking back on a shoot and seeing the joy, laughter and overwhelming love pictured. I find myself thinking if I can get this sense of joy from viewing photos of others then imagine the love and self esteem our children must feel when viewing photographs of themselves. That to me is a truly awesome thought!
‘when a child sees a family portrait with them incuded in the photograph they say to themselves: these people have me as part of what they are, that’s why I belong here. This is where I come from’ Judy Weiser licensed psychologist
‘I think it’s really important to show a family as a family unit. it is so helpful for children to see themselves as a valued and important part of the family unit. A photographers job is to create and make the image look like a safe holding space for kids where they are safe and protected. kids get it on a really simple level’ David Krauss licensed psychologist
Since reading a bit on the psychology of family photography I have certainly made a bigger effort to make sure we have lots of photos on our walls and even ones where I am pictured too! If you would love me to capture your family in the comfort of your own home please do get in touch, I would love to discuss your bespoke shoot.
