REASONS I LOVE FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHY:
You have so much scope to be experimental, artistic and creative "Once you get rid of the misconception that ‘family photography = cheesy crap’, you realise that you actually have a huge amount of freedom and opportunity to be creative and artistic. As a past wedding photographer, I now really appreciate how super-tight timings and the intense pressure to ‘get it right’ on an unrepeatable occasion can sometimes be restrictive from a creative point of view. That terrifying pressure to deliver can absolutely sometimes fire you up and push you forward artistically, but I found it can just as often stifle creativity and force you into repeating tried & tested ‘old chestnuts’. On a family shoot, there’s a relaxed pace, you have more control over how long you spend in any particular location, you’re not under distracting pressure, you have the freedom to experiment, to try new things, to not worry too much if some shots don’t ‘work’, to have the time to really maximise whatever light/compositional opportunities there are. The range of different types of location is huge too – family houses and outdoor locations are so varied and different that every shoot offers up so many new chances to have a little photographic adventure and create something new."

⚡ FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHY BUSINESS ADVICE 101 ⚡ "No brand can stand alone - it’s inextricably intertwined with the people who use and interact with it - your clients. The type of clients you attract and work with will be dictated by your brand and how you communicate this. Ultimately if you’re giving them confused or mixed messages you’re going to attract the wrong kind of people for you. This is one of the most common reasons people don’t attract their ideal clients.
You need to be crystal clear about exactly who your ideal client is - take some time to really explore this in detail. Once you understand them, you can and must speak directly to them.
That way, when your ideal client comes across your brand and website, they’ll feel immediately understood and magnetised by it." 📗 Above excerpt from my free guide to family photography - please go ahead & grab your copy here :)

Photographing older children: "Once children get a little older, there are so many possibilities for photographs, and it becomes really exciting choosing ideas and locations for the shoot. By this age, they will happily enjoy being out and about for the duration of the shoot, so it opens up a lot of potential for choosing some amazing locations and backdrops and turning it into an exciting day out for the family – the beach, the woods, the hills – anywhere is possible and your kids will love the adventure.

By this age, most kids will have favourite activities and hobbies, and it’s great to incorporate these and base the shoot around their personality and what they enjoy doing. Shoots with kids this age are such great fun and always a mega workout for me! Rampaging around and constant giggling are pretty much the order of the day… it’s great to get outside and make some mischief. Who doesn’t love to do that?!"

Sometimes the best images don’t need to be the obvious “smile at the camera” ones... images can say so much more by looking at things from a different view... don’t you think?

This looks similar to the face I imagine I pull when doing some seriously hard yoga workout... How amazingly handsome and cute is little Max here?

He was on an impromptu play date with his friend Tom during our family shoot in Sale and couldn't help pull his best handsome pose face at every opportunity! 💖

Photographing newborns: "I prefer to keep these natural. Some newborn photographers like to ‘pose’ babies in particular positions, or dress/arrange them with cute props or outfits, but personally I think they are cute enough in themselves and don’t need any gimmicks, and as a mum myself I'd personally prefer to remember my new baby exactly as they are in their unique home environment, rather than alongside generic props or backgrounds (although many people do love photos like this and there are some very talented photographers out there with this approach – I’m just not one of them!) I tend to use ‘props’ from the family’s own home – their favourite baby blankets, their bed and/or the baby’s bed, and of course the parents themselves – all part and parcel of the ‘real’ life of the baby and their family.

For newborn photos, generally speaking these will always be indoors – as they're not yet mobile and need to be kept warm there is little point taking babies of this age outside. Babies will also usually/mostly be asleep throughout – the photographs will mainly focus on the baby themselves – beautiful, tiny details of their little bodies and faces and of course, lots of cuddles with mum(s) and/or dad(s). It’s possible to get a variety of images by photographing the baby wrapped up / swaddled, in normal clothing and also naked or partially naked if the parents want this and it’s warm enough, as well as feeding."

👶 PHOTOGRAPHING DIFFERENT AGES OF CHILDREN 👧

If you're a parent you might be wondering what's the best age to have photographs of your child taken.

Similarly, if you're a photographer you might be wondering what are the differences in approach when you're photographing different age groups.

I get asked both of these questions a lot, so here's a handy guide for both parents and photographers :) Hope you find it helpful!

💜 The importance of emotional connection 💜 "I passionately believe in the importance of the emotional connection between YOU as a photographer and the people you’re photographing. I believe it’s this that makes the biggest difference to the photographs – every bit as much as, if not more than, traditional aspects such as light and composition. MOMENTS are where the photographic gold-dust lies… and if you’re not CONNECTED to your clients then you’ll miss half of them." Full blog post LINK IN BIO

⚡FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHY MYTHS 101 ⚡

MYTH: You have to do cringey in-person sales

I was told that this was a non-negotiable. That ALL family photographers do this and that by selling face to face you can expect to earn about £8623639305 per shoot. I duly trotted out and bought myself a projector and massive portable screen, then after each shoot arranged an evening visit to the family’s home to showcase their images and try and flog them. It was toe-curlingly painful. I hated it. So many aspects of it.

Giving up my precious evenings in the first place… Turning up at their front door with loads of equipment like some pushy door-to-door salesman… Fannying around with a million extension plugs and trying to work out why the hell my projector was on the blink while they waited patiently on the sofa politely drinking a cup of tea… Showing them their images and not knowing what face to pull while they looked at them – was a smile too smug? Was a solemn face too grumpy? Should I be looking at the clients or the pictures?… When they’d seen their pictures, taking a deep breath before squirming on the sofa, dying inside, as I awkwardly showed them my samples and tried to tell them how much everything was… talking them out of sales because I didn’t want to be too ‘salesy’ – I was an absolute bloody disaster area. On top of knowing how terrible I was at this, was the knowledge and understanding that if I was a client, I’d really hate being sold to in my own living room. So on top of feeling like an incompetent pillock I also felt guilty and unethical. Not a great combo.

Needless to say, I stopped doing in-person sales and never looked back. My sales are higher than they’ve ever been and I never sell face to face. Some people excel at doing this. I am not one of those people. Business is as much about knowing your weaknesses as well as your strengths. There is not one ‘right way’ to do it. If it’s uncomfortable for you, you don’t have to do it and you probably shouldn’t. The way that feels right to you will feel right to your ‘tribe’ too.

⚡FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHY MYTHS 101 ⚡ MYTH: You have to do cringey in-person sales I was told that this was a non-negotiable. That ALL family photographers do this and that by selling face to face you can expect to earn about £8623639305 per shoot. I duly trotted out and bought myself a projector and massive portable screen, then after each shoot arranged an evening visit to the family’s home to showcase their images and try and flog them. It was toe-curlingly painful. I hated it. So many aspects of it. Giving up my precious evenings in the first place… Turning up at their front door with loads of equipment like some pushy door-to-door salesman… Fannying around with a million extension plugs and trying to work out why the hell my projector was on the blink while they waited patiently on the sofa politely drinking a cup of tea… Showing them their images and not knowing what face to pull while they looked at them – was a smile too smug Was a solemn face too grumpy Should I be looking at the clients or the pictures… When they’d seen their pictures, taking a deep breath before squirming on the sofa, dying inside, as I awkwardly showed them my samples and tried to tell them how much everything was… talking them out of sales because I didn’t want to be too ‘salesy’ – I was an absolute bloody disaster area. On top of knowing how terrible I was at this, was the knowledge and understanding that if I was a client, I’d really hate being sold to in my own living room.

⚡FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHY MYTHS 101 ⚡

MYTH: Family photography means learning lots of cheesy poses & ‘selling out’

When I first started out, I looked at a lot of family photography on the internet and built a clear picture in my mind of the kind of things I’d have to produce. Largely this seemed to mean co-ordinating toe-curlingly cheesy group poses that involved massive toothy grins at the camera, a lot of peeking out of stuff, a fair amount of balancing on things (and each other), matching outfits and quite a lot of resting chins on hands. It really wasn’t my cup of tea but hey, that’s what you have to do. I distinctly remember making some poor family peek out from behind a tree in a busy park in Manchester whilst knowing deep down that I was not only compromising my creative integrity but also being a bit of a dick.

Thankfully after a couple of years and gradually gaining the confidence to shoot in the way that I wanted to, I realised that no families were yearning for these cheese-fests and that they actually loved the images all the more for being artistic and honest. There is genuinely no need whatsoever to sacrifice your own artistic and creative vision. To the contrary, you can stay completely true to yourself and your style, and your family photography will be all the stronger for it.

⚡ FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHY BUSINESS ADVICE 101 ⚡ "There are a lot of photographers out there, and it’s important to develop your own unique style and voice. This can be a minefield for photographers - it can be so hard to define your own style (a case of being ‘too close’ to your pictures, or of ‘not being able to see the wood for the trees’.) It’s so easy to get distracted by what other photographers are doing and how they are shooting. Many of us get lost following trends, emulating others and focusing on what we think we ‘should’ be doing. But the fact is that there is no one ‘right way’ to photograph families, and it’s crucial for you to find your own unique ‘groove’ that’s comfortable and feels right for you personally. Don’t worry if you see others doing it differently to how you want to do it - stick to your guns!" 📗 Above excerpt from my free guide to family photography - please go ahead & grab your copy (LINK IN BIO) 🐦 Also just a heads up that early bird discounts on the Roost family photography workshop end midnight on Thursday (LINK IN BIO)
