What a wonderful morning this family portrait session was. I met up with Miriyan and her family in the park for games and photographs. I love to capture families having fun, so that the photographs are memories of a happy morning together. During this I make sure that I get some photos of the whole family together, individual shots of the children and then each of them with each parent. This happens naturally during the morning and whilst you play, I give a little bit of direction and ideas for games. This morning we were singing songs, dancing and having running races.
As a parent of twins I feel it is particularly important to capture individual photographs of each twin. I make sure that we have some of the individual photographs of our twins up in our house as I feel this helps them see themselves as an individual and build their own identity. I also see the photographs not just as a great memory for now, but as treasures for the children as they grow up and heirlooms for them to pass down to their own children.
