A Summer Full of Memories Starts with a Dorset family photographer!

Why book a family photographer in Dorset this summer?

If the last couple of years in the pandemic have taught us anything, it is that our family is precious and our little families are growing so quickly. A Dorset family photographer is able to offer photoshoots capturing your memories for you to reflect on and treasure for years to come. It's those little things that you forget as your children grow older; maybe your daughter has the most beautiful soft baby curls that she kept from being a newborn or your little boy has the most cheeky smiles and expressions while snuggling his favourite bunny toy! This summer, consider booking a family portrait photographer in Dorset to capture your memories.

Here are a few reasons why:

1. Photographers can help you organise your family into fun, natural and flattering poses.

2. They can take candid shots that will capture the laughter and love in your family.

3. Professional photographers have the experience and know-how to get the best images possible, documenting your family’s unique personality and create beautiful images in your session that you will cherish for years to come

Choosing the right family photographer

When choosing a family photographer, it is important to find one who will capture the spirit of your children and family. Look for someone who has a good sense of humour and can take stunning, relaxed and candid shots. Be sure to check out their portfolio to see if their portrait style matches what you are looking for. It is also important to find someone who is easy to work with and can be flexible with your schedule. Working with babies, children and pets takes patience as things don't always go to plan!

The Benefits of Booking a Family Photographer

There are many benefits of booking a family photographer in Dorset this summer. One of the most important things is that children tend to behave better in front of a camera when they are interacting with someone that they don't know (that's why they behave so well at school!). Family portrait photographers often use natural light, which can create beautiful and timeless portraits. Additionally, booking a professional for a family photoshoot can be less stressful than trying to take photos yourself! They will know how to pose your family and capture relaxed, candid moments that you'll cherish forever. Why not extend the family photoshoot and include grandparents?

What to expect from your family portrait photography session...

When you book a formal family portrait photoshoot session with a photographer, there are some things you can expect. The first is that the photographer will want to speak with you before the session to discuss your family shoots and give you ideas on how to dress for the day. They will also want to know about any special needs or requests your family may have.

The portrait photographer will then likely take some time to plan the family session and choose a location that will be perfect for your family. During the session, they will work with you to capture beautiful photos of your loved ones. If you have a dog, they may even include them in some of the shots.

You can expect that the professional photographer will take their time getting great images and that the session may last anywhere from 45 minutes to an hour or so. At the end of the session, you will likely receive a gallery of the very best edited photos for you to choose from.

In conclusion, hiring a professional family photographer is a great way to capture your lovely family and their unique personality and story.

Why not book one of my family relaxed photo shoots this summer?

As a busy mum of three (two boys 12, 9 and a little girl 6), I know how busy and chaotic family life can be and that your children are growing up so quickly. I love families to take timeout of their busy lives and press pause for a moment where I can take beautiful and timeless photographs that you will cherish for years to come. My photography studio is the brilliant, light filled outdoors! Your family might love a portrait at a Poole and Bournemouth beach (Sandbanks is always a favourite) or you might love Sunday walks in the Wimborne Countryside? Being a portrait photographer in Poole I know the Dorset area so well I can recommend a few places that would be perfect for your family portrait session. You might not have had professional pictures taken since your wedding day and feel awkward in front of the camera. But please don't worry, I know the best way to pose people in pictures to show themselves in the most flattering light. My photographic style is relaxed and natural and the sessions are much fun, perfectly capturing your loved ones authentic selves that you'll remember in years to come.

So if you are looking for an outdoor family portrait photographer to capture your family's memories in a beautiful picture that you'll absolutely love, I'd be delighted to hear from you to commission me to take your natural family photos! My family photography is predominantly based in Poole, across Bournemouth and surrounding areas of Dorset, South West UK but if you live further afield in Hampshire and Wiltshire please do get in touch. I also offer Gift Vouchers.
