No-stress Solution to Getting Family Photos You Love

Stress-free family photoshoots exist! Really!

But HOW? I hear you ask. Family photography usually means having the kids stand/sit and pose and my kids will not do that!

Let me tell you a secret… You most definitely do not have to sit and pose for a great family photo. No, no – those are BORING! Trust me, the photos you will actually LOVE the most, are the ones that are truly candid and natural.

Your family having FUN – just how it should be.

No worrying about co-ordinated outfits, or if the children will be on their best behaviour

Children are not robots. Yeah, some photographers are good at getting children to sit in their pristine outfits and all looking towards the camera and smiling. But let’s face it, the images all look the same year in, year out – except the kids have grown a wee bit.

The best family photos are the ones that really tell your story in an authentic way. 

My photography sessions are a completely stress-free experience. There will be no bribing children to sit nicely and stay still. I actually love it more when they run wild and free! Children by nature are happiest when they are allowed to roam about and explore. Why do I know this?

I’m a parent, just like you

I am also not just a photographer! Yep, in my spare time, I lose hours to Pinterest, looking for new activities to do with our local toddler group – putting my Early Years education training to good use! I’m also such a big kid at heart – so I have a great rapport with children and I can make them laugh to bring out a wee smile for the camera if they are feeling a bit shy.

But I hate being in front of the camera.

I hear ya. This is something that most of the parents I work with will say to me at the start of the photoshoot. I’m the same! It will take a lot of bribery for me to step out from behind the lens! Trust me though, you will LOVE the photos of you and your children. I hang back and capture the in-between moments – the ones that would be missed in “normal” family portrait session.

Cheryl is quite simply a genius! I booked her for photos of my daughter. She ended up getting a couple of us together. Very natural candid pics that I love. Me being someone that hates having a photo taken and hates photos that I am in. She does a great job of putting you at ease and just snaps away as she goes.
