Family – one of the masterpieces of nature.
Family photographs are of the utmost importance for any family. They tell about ancestors, their way of life and the most important values – kindness, trust and love. Albums with old photos are the best teachers of ethics for the youngest family members. Each person belongs to a family, to a certain clan and he is part of the family’s heritage.
Family photographs are the reflections of your family’s personality and wonderful moments of life. They are the immutable values, warmed by the family warmth and loving hearts. Every photo makes up the special piece of your family photo history and will become a legend to the future generations.
Speaking about pregnancy, I would compare this family moment with a seed. It is a seed of a new story, your couple book of life, the moment in your lives as father and mother to be. A maternity session allows you to take some time to enjoy this special phase. It’s so unique that the woman’s body gives birth to a child. The years will pass and nine months of waiting for your little toddler will be forgotten. Having a maternity photosesseion is recommended from 25 weeks of pregnancy. Perhaps amongst blossoms in the spring, with your bare feet in the sand in the summer, between the falling leaves in autumn or with a knitted sweater and hat in winter. Maternity portrait sessions are mainly for you, but you can also involve your partner, other children or grandparents.
“Instead of wishing away nine months of pregnancy and complaining about the shadow over my feet, I’d have cherished every minute of it and realized that the wonderment growing inside me was to be my only chance in life to assist God in a miracle.” – Erma Bombeck, “If I Had My Life to Live Over”
Cherish and love your relatives, children who are nearest and dearest! Do not put off the meeting until later. Give your family the opportunity to capture and freeze this tiny happiness and smiling faces. Every portraiture has its own story to tell. Moreover, later your future generations will be able to introduce their children to their ancestors.
“You must remember, family is often born of blood, but it doesn’t depend on blood. Nor is it exclusive of friendship. Family members can be your best friends, you know. And best friends, whether or not they are related to you, can be your family.” – Trenton Lee Stewart
Do you have any photographs decorating your house? If not, just imagine how great it would be to have some professionally made photographs with your loved ones as an adorn at your desktop or framed pictures on your walls. How nice would it be, when amongst the daily hustle, you could have a passing look at your dearest and warm up your soul.
The photoshoot of your family might take a place at home, somewhere in nature, as photowalk in your city, or a kind of reportage during a family event. There are many options. Family photosession is a nice gift to yourself and your loved ones. Moreover, it is a great opportunity to spend an unforgettable time together.
