One of my favorite clients once told me that the mini shoots work better for her. With two little toddlers she simply loved the idea of a quick shoot to capture and freeze that moment in her little ones life time and then be at home in time ready for that all important nap or AKA down time for mum. Mini shoots do have their benefits, firstly they are family friendly, budget friendly and a great way to save your memories between those annual big family photo shoots.
They act as a great way to quickly incorporate special occasion and themes without the theme taking over the whole shoot. We are running the Christmas mini shoots for this exact reason. You get the Christmas feel in your shots with the whole photo shoot being about Christmas. Themes for major shoots can be too dominating and take away from the overall feel and look of the images. For family photography you sometimes want a neutral undertone so that the photos don’t date or seem to orchestrated.
Most of my clients will see me once or twice a year for their family photos. They, like me believe in the importance of capturing the family unit as it grows and time speeds along. However there are many who ask for mini shoots as an in-between or mid year booster for the family album and that’s where our idea for the Christmas shoots came along.
The purpose of photos is to try and save a moment in time, for most it is hard to only capture one moment a year, if you are like me I want to capture nearly every day of my three kids lives. Its an opportunity to press pause which is impossible in real life with three active little boys. My photography is my outlet to let love in and save it close to my heart to review and reflect again and again when flipping through family photo albums.
