As our all in one spot family times can be hard to manage I find myself often taking a lifestyle response to capturing our family memories when we are all together and a more formal response to having the kids all together when dad is away.
This means I can get the fun of family travels or trips, get the interactions and love between family members outdoors, and the intricate portraiture I want for my walls, and photo albums covered as well.
Family time for our family is engaging together in either doing nothing or everything all in the one day!
My husband is a truck driver and therefore travels the country, up and down the east coast and out west of QLD & NSW away from his family for work. We are one of the lucky families and get to have him home once week (sometimes), even if it's just for an overnight stay passing through town.
Therefore when the time comes that he is home on a weekend, we can cram a lot of family stuff in!
Family time with my husband means being ready to go on the spot, spur of the moment good times and short fun trips out together. All in stacks on, crammed in fun times.
When it comes down to it, family time is what we make of it and I love location and lifestyle sessions for capturing the good times had, walking, adventuring or just hanging out.
Life is just a series of memories, moments & experiences merged together afterall
Who can relate to this?!
Not all family time can be pre arranged and organised and sometimes things happen fast. Totally understanding of how families can be time poor I offer quick booking sessions and willingness to work in with your schedule during the week or weekend to secure a spot to fit in your family. Super quick family sessions or sessions in a pre chosen location can help you get your family together in the one spot and get those portraits you seem to never have the time to get done.
A combination of both gives the best of both worlds, covering all interactions and sharing the love of family members in a unique way on "film" for you to hold on to as your family grows up.
