Family portrait photography is often underrated

Brooke McKenzie Amador contacted us at Blue Mermaid Photography for a family portrait shoot.  What tugged at my heartstrings was the fact that her lovely dad had been diagnosed with a recurring bout of cancer so they wanted the photographs before his treatment started. This blog is my way of reiterating how important family portrait photography is.

An absolutely love-drenched, joyful and beautiful shoot was the result.  What a delightful family to work with!  The sisters and their families are so tight-knit  to their mom and dad that it was truly a lesson in family bonds and an absolute pleasure to work with.

The most important thing about this shoot is that the family now have a wonderful, happy,  up-to-date record of themselves which can be cherished for a long time to come.  Too often people underestimate the importance of family portraits and this is only realised when it’s too late and a beloved member of the family is no longer with them.  I have heard so many heartbreaking stories where this has happened that it has become a mission of both mine and Covi’s to get as many families in front of our lenses as possible to avoid this.

The session can be as simple as a mini which will take us 20 minutes and give you a small number of gorgeous, candid shots to keep forever or you can take a full session which could last as long as a couple of hours.  This is tailored to your specific requirements and can mean that a number of locations are used for the shoot or that you have the complete extended family involved and we incorporate micro family portraits within the extended family portrait, giving you a huge range of beautiful frames for everyone to have and to cherish for years to come – until the next session, that is.
