Noel and Niamh realised that there were no photos of Max (3) in the house and that his beautiful blond hair might not last forever. They knew it was time for a family photography session. Yet, they didn’t want to get traditional studio photos but wanted a photographer who could capture ordinary moments and the silliness, love and happiness that filled them.
Ordinary moments are NOT boring
A walk on the seafront of Greystones (beautiful, even in winter), buying ice cream, playing with legos, making homemade pizza, brothers
playing poking each other’s eyes out (just joking!), doing homework and reading books. Normal afternoon activities for this family of four which made for a very interesting family photography session for me.
I’m kind of obsessed with ‘childhood’ and capturing kids just being kids. It might be Adam (6) who just can’t wait to try his ice cream and doesn’t take his coat off, the look on his face when he concentrates on his homework or the way he meticulously pushes out the peppers from the olives.
It was lovely to witness the relationship between the two brothers and seeing the whole family spending time together, going for a walk, playing legos and board games. I know it wasn’t just for the photo session and it was a privilege being a part of the family for a whole afternoon.
Thank you all again!
Which images do you think they picked from their family photography session?
Niamh and Noel wanted to see the result of their family photography session on their walls. This is by far the best way to bring a smile on your face every morning, day after day.
I love storyboards because they tell a short story, let you pick more than one expression from each member of the family and show the connections and relationships. It takes the pressure of taking that ONE photograph that will have everyone smiling and looking at the camera.
These are two photographs of their framed storyboards taken when I received them. I always double check everything is as it should be before delivering them.
Framed storyboards were my most popular product in 2017. Check out some more products photographs.
See the beauty in your family’s ordinary moments
