From day trips to the seaside to picnics in the park, from cheap caravan holidays to the hugely anticipated trip to Disneyland, we all have great memories of family days and holidays that we can look back on, as well as an abundance of photographs to flick through.
Take a good look through all your family photographs of great days together, laugh over them, share memories over them... but I'm betting that there's something lacking in most of those photos. You!
How many photographs do you have of your family as a whole? How many times do you actually appear in your holiday photographs? Probably not that many, I'm guessing. And the ones where you are most likely involve an outstretched arm, the dreaded "selfie stick" (and possible photobomber!) or drunken tilt where your camera has tipped on the uneven wall it rests on while you have bolted into the scene with seconds to spare. We've all got them.
It's why we photograph these events as much as possible, so that we can cling on to the memories as they get older. But wouldn't it be lovely to actually be in those photographs? To be involved in the activities that you will all remember instead of trying to capture a blurry shot of it on your phone?
Invite me on your family day out and I will capture every memory as it happens. Allow me to document a day in your family's life so that you can relax, enjoy and take part in what is going on around you.
Because there will come a time when your kids grow up and move out, when they start families of their own and, a long way into the future, when you are no longer here, they will search through those cardboard boxes in the loft and find those images. And they will sit and look through them with smiles and tears... because you will be in the photographs too.
You will get:
