Family Photo shoot | Cardiff

Family Photo Shoot Cardiff

There’s a lot of moving parts with a family photo shoot at the beach. Travel to the location, the mood of the children, the tide, cloud cover, wind etc.

When Fortunately, we could call bingo on this shoot. Everything went better than we could have ever hoped. The kids were ridiculously cute, and Mindy (Mum) dressed Jojo, Harry and Sonny with textures and colours that complimented each other. Just perfect.

Mum contacted me through a Facebook post. I was looking for three families to take part in a shoot so I could try out some new stuff, not new poses but rather a new shooting technique. 

I always learn a few things from a shoot, this time it was kids continue to equal chaos and that the middle of a Vimto lollipop tastes like vomit. (I just realised it’s actually an anagram.) The kids didn’t like the centre, and I found the remains of one in my bag yesterday when it was stuck to my finger.

Family photography style

Not so long ago, I used to think I was a pure documentary family photographer, but I don’t know if I’d call myself that anymore. I dabble in documentary, lifestyle, fine art portraiture and just a tiny, tiny bit of traditional photography for Granny’s wall.

A photographer’s style is their idea of what family life looks to them, and every time I click the shutter, I’m capturing what it looks like to me. If what you see speaks to you, then please get in touch as I’d love to be your photographer for your family photoshoot.

Big hearts = amazing family photographs

Big-hearted families that radiate love for each other are the families that I dream of working with. That stuff is why I do what I do. It makes you feel good and to see it up close makes everything right in the world.

I’ll leave you with one of my favourite shoots of the summer.
