Joan Jellett Photography - Family Portraits
A great family portrait is often a difficult thing to come by and I speak from personal experience as well as a photographer! I have been photographing families for several years now and I still love to wander around the woods searching for the perfect spot where you can feel free to gaze lovingly at one another (kids included!).
The more candid photos can reveal other aspects of your personalities that can be very hard to capture in a posed shot and these are always a delight to look at as the years go by, showing you how you have grown as individuals and more importantly as a family! I always love to see a family portrait or collage of different shots hanging in pride of place in the family home, where you are all looking relaxed and happy. This is where I can help you most, so have a look at my family blog to see some examples of my work.
I prefer outdoor sessions because the light quality is always superior and more importantly, it is natural, which means the images are sharp and full of colour and depth. I always try to make the shoot fun and relaxing, especially when young children are involved. Indoors can work well too if you have a home with good natural light or a particular spot that captures light well, so if you'd prefer this we could work together to find the best location.
If your interested in getting hold of that priceless shot that you will treasure for years to come, please get in touch for a chat.
