MOST treasured PHOTOS

a new style of Family Photoshoots in reading, Berkshire

+ Buckinghamshire

So many times, I hear the Mum I'm photographing telling me that she is hardly in any of the photos with their kids.  Often it's said in jest, a throwaway comment teasing her husband or partner who is with her.  But there's usually a bit of a sad truth in there too.  She takes hundreds of photos every week but often no-one thinks to take any of her.  She sees the sweet, natural, un-staged moments and photographs the rest of the family but you wouldn't know she was there too.  When somebody finally does suggest taking her photo, typically it's when she's in her pyjamas and hasn't combed her hair yet, so she says no.  They take that to mean that she doesn't want to be photographed but they're wrong.  The feeling of being in the odd nice photo with her kids is so special to her as it's something she rarely gets to see unless she has taken it herself in a selfie.

Does this sound like you?  As much as you don't put yourself forwards sometimes, would you love to be in the picture with your kids too?  To show them when they are older, how you used to look at them and laugh with them?

This summer, let us do the work for you whilst you're the star of the show with your loved ones, knowing they'll keep these moments forever.

You could wait another year and keep putting it off, but everything will have changed by then.  Your kids will thank you for it too - for showing them their childhood in context rather than just the photos of them playing on their own when they were young.

We had a really enjoyable photoshoot with Sharan and Sunny - lots of fun and not at all hard work. Photos are lovely and the little video that Sunny took as well, really nice memories. Very good value too. Highly recommend!! xxx
