Family Photo Shoot Cardiff


Family Photo Shoot Cardiff | Dixon family

At the beach again for another shoot, it’s a regular thing, especially popular with city-dweller folk, like this four. Even though I see the beach all the time, it’s never got boring, if anything I’ve come to love it more and all the different ways it shows itself. My favourite time to be at the beach for family photography is when the tide is out and the sun is about to set. It’s not always practical to be doing family photos at ten o’clock at night. So I at least make sure the tide is out.

Tired Kids

Simon and George and their two little ones travelled for two hours for this family photo shoot, so it was only right to hang out until the kids wanted nothing but sleep.

I’ve known Simon since we were teenagers and watched him marry the girl of his dreams and build a beautiful house and family.

Knowing someone and being comfortable gives accesses that you’d never have otherwise. Because of this I always try to get to know the name of everyone who will be on the photoshoot. I also make sure I get what you and your family want from the shoot. Sometimes it’s a very detailed requirement, other times it’s only two words like “fun and love”. I know mum wanted portraits of the kids and photos of them all together, they’re growing way too fast. And time only ever moves forward.

Choosing a photographer

No one ever regrets having too many family photos together. But families are busy things to be a part of. You have to take the time to browse and choose a photographer. There are all sorts of things to consider, there’s the price, will you like your photos, the list goes on. I get it. Maybe it’s because you had a shoot that was a bit meh last time and that’s your enduring memory of professional family photo shoots.

Speak to anyone who’s had a positive experience and loved the images they receive and they’ll tell you its not that bad. It’s worth making it a priority and putting it at the top of your list. When kids grow so fast its an incredibly valuable thing to do, they grow, and they do it without you noticing until it hits you. Not trying to pull on your heartstrings here but I adore my family photos and I’d be lying if I said I didn’t wish there were more.

Ready for something different?

If you’d like a family photoshoot in Cardiff or somewhere meaningful to you and you have a wild little tribe, say hi, shoot me a question, or jump straight to it and find out when I’m available.
I love working with family-orientated people like you who are ready for something a bit different.
