It is a very special event when creating an image that includes multiple generations of a family. There is something inherently special about knowing your images will be treasured for years and years to come.
Anne and her daughter came to me a few months ago looking for elegant, classic family portraiture. Anne, Karen and Rebekah makeup the three generations of women in their family.
Having never had a portrait taken that she has liked, Anne was a little nervous. Her concerns were short-lived as she relaxed and became quite the model! All three ladies have a very close family bond and it was wonderful to capture this love and to be able to share a day to get dressed up, look and feel stunning and really just to have fun and spend time with one another.
I think it's so important for mothers to get in front of the camera with their children. Often it is Mum who takes the photo of her loved ones. Looking back at my own family pictures it would have been good if my wife and I had existed in some of the photos as well. When our children group up they will no doubt be fascinated by themselves at a young age. But it would also have been good to have seen how much their Mum and Dad enjoyed life with them.
Being the first time all three generations had been photographed together professionally, Anne and her daughter really showcase how important it is for women to get in front of the camera for both themselves and for their family.
Have a great day!
