There are times when we are all too aware of the old saying about you can choose your friends but not your family. Our families can be a great source of joy, support and togetherness: yet at times they can drive us to distraction! Sometimes we look around and think that everyone else seems to have a better, happier or less complicated family life than we do: but other people are probably thinking the same about us.
Whatever your family situation, just pause and take a moment to appreciate what you’ve got. As the words of Joni Mitchell’s Big Yellow Taxi describe so well: “Don't it always seem to go that you don't know what you've got till it’s gone.” Families change constantly, people come and go, and we often don’t make time to enjoy being with the family that we do have.
Life is full of good intentions but many of us also neglect the opportunity to capture family memories in a way that will last for years to come. In our instant, online culture we may take dozens of photos on our phone and perhaps upload some of them to social media but do we have any really good family portraits that generations to come will be able to enjoy in the future?
So next time you have a family gathering why not spend a few minutes getting some really good photographs that you can then circulate round the family in various formats such as photo albums or wall art. Whatever format they choose, you will all be able to enjoy the photographs and the shared memories that they bring.
Here are our five tips for getting your family portraits just right:
We hope the above tips will help you create some wonderful family portraits that everyone will treasure for years to come. But if you would rather put the responsibility into the hands of the professionals then why not consider having some family portraits done by Venture Studios? It could be an ideal Christmas gift for all the family to share and enjoy. To find out more about how we can help, why not get in touch with Venture Studios today!
