Here at Boggio Studios we love photographing families of all ages.  We have photographed the newest members of the families in our newborn shoots to older babies, toddlers, children, teenagers and twenty somethings.  Every shoot we do is varied and we love the different personalities that each family brings to the studio

A few months ago we met this lovely American Family who are living in London.  They have 3 boys who are aged between 7 and 12.  The family was so much fun from start to finish and were up for experimenting with the props in the studio and just having a fun day out as a family.

Megan found out about us through a stall that we had at a Christmas Fair. She said, “I had seen some of the work from Boggio Studios before and I really liked it. However, I was working at the Fair and didn’t get to stop by. It was our eldest son, who is 12, who spent a bit of time flipping through some of the photo albums on display. My son brought his dad to the stall and said that he should buy me a photo shoot as a Christmas present.  A brilliant idea – as we have never done a family photo shoot before – and something I wouldn’t have thought my son would be interested in giving as a gift.”

Megan carried on to tell us that with a busy family they just hadn’t found time to organise a family portrait. “The boys are always busy with school, football, music and just playing.  However, now we feel that we are at a precious and fun time in our family where it is important to capture the boys (aged 12, 10 and 7) and their relationship with each other.”

Our Photographer Kate absolutely loved taking the photos of this family and took some time at the start of the shoot to talk about what they wanted from their session with us.  Our Studio is like a treasure trove with all the props we have for families to use.  This was a great icebreaker for the boys coming into the studio.  Megan said, “The boys explored some of the props in the room and began to just play around.  We were just able to relax. The boys played around with balls, tennis racquets, chalkboards and jumped and danced as their photos were taken. It was actually great family time together.”

A few weeks later they all came back in for their viewing and absolutely loved the images that they were shown. “It was incredible to us how wonderfully our goal had been met. While we had a great time, we didn’t know what to expect from the actual images.  However, the photos were unbelievable, amazing. What was most incredible to us was how the photos really captured the personality of each boy and the bonds between the brothers and the whole family.”
