Convincing teenagers to do anything can be tricky, but we know they’re up for a photo shoot!
We have many young families with babies join us for sessions but it’s always really special when a family is able to gather their teenagers or older children and have them take part in a family photo shoot. As children grow up, there are endless activities, social events and reasons why it might be hard to arrange a date for something like this, but as you can see from our shoot with Melissa and her family, it’s well worth it!
Having photographs taken within your child’s first few years (first year especially!) is so important, but that’s not to say having portraits taken as they get older should be an after thought. Not only will you have the opportunity to have some lovely family shots taken, it’s also a time to let your teens have a bit of the spotlight. We love making this type of experience a positive one that can boost self esteem and really allow everyone to have a bit of fun in front of the camera. Julia has a knack for getting people of all ages to open up and be confident, even if they are a bit shy to start.
During this family session, we were able to get a great combination of shots using a more neutral blue background for some classic shots and then have a bit of fun with a change of outfit and some brighter colours.
Shoots like this can be the perfect gift for the upcoming holiday season. Get in touch with our bookings team to discuss packages for shoots and additional services such as professional hair, makeup and shoot styling. Add ons such as these can really make the day special and can be incorporated into your package.
We look forward to helping you plan the perfect shoot for you and your family.
