There is nothing better,in my opinion, than real life! And capturing real life is the way I enjoyÂ working when I am using my cameras. I enjoy capturing weddings in a candid fashion, I enjoy documenting cities I travel to in a documentary street photography style. When it comes to family photography, I love Â capturing those real moments that are unposed. There is something about capturingÂ what we Â do at a certain time. With its beauty and sometimes its imperfections. This kind of photography allow us in the future to remember how we were. What we used to wear. Or what we used to do. The way we behaved with each other. Those subtle interactions between our family members.
I enjoy spending a day (preferably) from wake up time to bed time being around you and your family. Documenting the normal stories of daily life. I recently did such a shoot with a family of four. It was great to get to know everyone better. For me it is about observing and trying to create nice images out of mundane events. Those images will be more important as your children grow up. In no time, we will forget what things used to be like. That our children used to wear goggles inside the house, on enjoyed jumping up and down the sofas. The stories that we used to tell them and how we would read to them at bedtime.
This family was great to photograph. They were welcomingÂ and very friendly on the day. I will always join in and talk to people on the day, it is simply that I will not ask for the family to look at the camera or pose for me. Â Soon enough the families get used to me being around and often forget completelyÂ about me being there.
Here are only a few selected images from this shoot, I really hopeÂ that you enjoy it! If you are looking for a family photographer in Berkshire, working in Â a documentary style, I would love to hear from you!
