Christmas is Close
Christmas is Looming.
Did you know it is only 120 days or so until Christmas? Where has yet another year gone? So how have you gone with your plans and goals for the year? At this time of the year, it is a great time to assess how you are going and put plans in place for the rest of the year. Did you notice how much the kids have grown? So when was the last time you had some family portraits done?
So are you stuck for a Christmas idea? What are you going to give your family? What about parents, grandparents and the rest of your family? Always a great idea is to get your family photographed by a professional photographer. An annual trip to a professional photographer will allow you to document your family as time goes by. There is nothing like today to get it done.
Family photography can be done in a number of ways. The quickest, but not always the easiest is to use a studios with studios lighting. While some studios may be set up to utilise natural light, most will rely on studio flash. Studios shoots can be very creative because of the ability to control light and at various times of the day may be the best option. Daylight can be very harsh and while it is possible to do portrait shoots at midday, it is easier to do these in the studio.
Location photography can bring a different dynamic to your shoot as you can customise the shoot to your family. Props like chairs, balloons, picnic set, even family pets can be used. Once captured, these images will last forever. Procrastination is the worst thing when it get to family portraits and as everyone knows, time passes so quickly.
As we get closer to the end of the year, our grade 12 students are getting ready to leave school and enter society. A great memento for both the parents and the student is a senior’s portrait shoot. The students schooling life can be incorporated into the shoot to give a pictorial history of the last year at school.
