Why a family shoot?

How often do you find yourself looking back at old family photographs or albums over the years?  Those embarrassing images of you dressed in homemade clothes which become “adorable” the older you get, are priceless memories.  The worst thing for any family,  is to discover, too late, that they didn’t have any family photography done of the whole family – usually when someone dies.  I’m here to poke you in the ribs and remind you to call me to do your family photography, whether for Christmas cards,  family get-togethers, Golden Anniversaries or even Dad’s retirement party.  Think about the legacy that you’re leaving for the generations to come in your family and let’s do it!!

People get all caught up in wearing the right clothes, doing it at the right place, getting the right light and a million other issues.  Don’t.  Just get together and I promise you the vibe that family photography creates by just being together is enough to capture the moment!  If you can manage to co-ordinate colors, outfits, hair and makeup, that’s great but don’t panic if you can’t : do what suits your family!  As for the location:  the street in front of where you live can be used OR one of the stunning Florida beaches or your back garden.  We work with what we’ve got when we practice family photography.  I can’t wait to come and capture this memory for your family so don’t wait – call me!

Jane knew exactly what we were looking for and understood the type of pictures that would show our personalities.  She had a variation of ideas and poses which I appreciated.  I think she was very thoughtful about every detail that went into this photo shoot and took into consideration things that could make our pictures even that much better, for example the way the sun shined and how that lighting shined on us. Overall this photo shoot was a great experience.  Jane was very kind, produced amazing high quality pictures that I will hold dear to my heart, and had a fast turnaround from when she took the pictures to when we viewed them.  I would definitely book another photo shoot with her again.

I’m writing this letter to let you know we were thrilled with the set of family photographs you did for us last week. Thanks for transforming our family members into works of art!

The location that you chose was so appropriate, and the time you spent arranging poses for the various group portraits was truly appreciated, all this despite the inclement weather conditions that blew in!! Even those family members who are never comfortable having their photos taken look happy and laid-back, which is a true testament to your professional yet relaxed demeanor. We understand the potential challenge with taking photographs of young children, especially those 2 and under, but your patience, attention to detail, and quality of work resulted in some exceptionally beautiful pictures.

Thanks again Jane for the great photographs; we’d be very happy recommending your professional photography services to any other interested clients.

Thank you Jane for making our photo session with our new-born son so special. As first time parents we were very nervous with how Philip would react, and when he did start crying you handled it all so calmly and professionally! You made us feel so comfortable, we thoroughly enjoyed the experience. We still get so many compliments for the baptism photos, they look amazing.

Our family photo shoot with Jane was a really fun experience. The photographs were excellent, Jane kept everything simple yet professional. She sought input from all of us as to what we were looking for, reflecting it perfectly in the photographs. She has the ability to make everyone feel relaxed and able to enjoy the shoot. Stunning photographs!

From the moment that I first saw Jane's work, I knew that I wanted her to do our engagement shoot and document our special day. My husband isn't the most relaxed guy in front of a camera but Jane is so much fun, that his nerves quickly settled and we could relax and enjoy ourselves while she went around doing her thing. Jane captured all of our special moments, never getting in the way, never making a moment feel forced but always feeling like a special guest and friend.
She is warm, passionate and committed to getting the special moments that she views from behind her lens on film. She captures more than an image, she manages to capture the raw emotion of the moment. All of the love that you feel, all of the joy, will be reflected in your photographs and you will be transported back to the exact moment that the photo was taken. She's a true artist with a talent that she has cultivated through years of experience and a love a what she does.
I cannot recommend her highly enough!

Jane you were was so easy going and open minded I felt we hit it off at our first meeting.  Our family photos were done on location at Coral Cove Park, working with afternoon sunlight, wind and surf. All together, the elements combined to add so much natural balance to every shot.
We were incredibly pleased and excited to show everyone your work when we got our photos back. Thank you so much for your awesome work and for the laughs during the photo shoot. You are an amazing photographer with incredible talent!
