PRESERVING MEMORIES: FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHER, WORCESTERSHIRE

HOW CAN YOU FIND THE BEST FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHER, WORCESTERSHIRE/WORCESTER EDITION?

To find the best family photographer in Worcestershire, start by researching online portfolios and reviews. Reach out to potential photographers to discuss your vision and ensure they can capture the style you desire. Personal recommendations and consultations can also help in making a final decision.

I love capturing a family photo shoot in Worcestershire/ Worcester. Photographing your family photo session for a relaxed/great experience with a family photographer who wants to create authentic lasting memories that represent your beautiful family and delivery edited images/digital images via your own personalised online gallery to last a lifetime!

As you may know by now, I’m a little bit mad for Christmas (slight understatement!), check out last year’s blog post here, and see for yourself, but it really is the most magical time of the year for me. Red is also such a warm festive colour, and the light can be beautiful in the winter months too!

Late November/early December are two of my favourite months, not only because they are part of the big build up to Christmas, but because a family mini shoot (could’ve stopped there) with Christmas props and outfits, is my idea of heaven, and these are the months in which I get to shoot them!

With such an extremely busy lead up to Christmas, I wanted to make a quick and easy updated "tip list" for how you and your family can prep for your shoot with me and to get the most out of it, taking away images that you can cherish forever and even use for your Christmas cards/presents!

So, here are my tips on how to prep for your family photoshoot with (me) Megan McAdam Photography…

  • Be Individual – This is a chance to really showcase what it means to be a part of your family. Dress up and show off what makes you, you!

  • Get Creative - Following on from my last point, think about how you can exhibit yourselves at your most authentic! Props, keep sakes, outfits they’ll all be individual to you and working on them as a family (as opposed to individually) can work so well too! Think about complimentary colours and outfits, (but they really needn’t be o.t.t. matchy-matchy) fun accessories, family heirlooms, a splash of lipstick – the list is endless, and it’s a real chance to get artistic!

  • Have Fun – This is what the holidays are all about, after all! Use this time to try and relax with the family, tell "dad jokes", tickle each other, ask the kids what they’d like from Father Christmas, wrap up warm and snuggle. 

This year was my third year of capturing "Christmas mini’s" and I love them just as much, if not more, than I did when I first started. I have my go-to set-up and props and a few favourite locations, but this can be flexible, along with the time of day and day of the week in which our shoot will take place!

I usually recommend doing them in-between lunch and dinner as an afternoon activity for the little ones to enjoy, before it gets too cold/dark! And I encourage shooting at the weekend, so the whole family can be involved and there’s less pressure to get to potential after school activities.

I honestly love taking family photographs at a family photography shoot, documentary family photography and capturing natural photographs of your family portraits to tell your family story authentically is so lovely to be able to do.
