What is Family Portrait Photography
As the title suggests, family photography is all about capturing groups of people that are related. However, it really should read family and friends portraits, as there’s no rule to say that you have to be related.
We often capture friends together for portraits. Friends’ shoots also make fantastic gifts because as friends, subjects are often a lot more relaxed.
For all new parents out there, we also offer newborn photography. As you can imagine, these are incredibly special shoots, capturing some of those precious moments in your newborn babies first few weeks.
The secrets to good family portrait photography
It might look like an easy job. You get a group of people in front of a camera and click a few times, however, the reality is very different.
Standing in front of a camera in a studio can be quite a new experience for a lot of people. Part of our job is to make everyone involved feel completely at ease with the process. If everyone is relaxed, this will be projected through to the resulting images. Nobody wants to see awkward or stilted poses. We want to make it look effortless.
I’m proud to say that Leading Imagery provides natural-looking images that capture all of the personalities involved in our portrait shoots.
