Family Photoshoot celebrating a milestone

Family Photography, North London Family Photography

The most common milestones that we celebrate and that I’m asked to take photos for families are usually the kids – just born, first birthday, new one on the way. But this family chose to have a family photoshoot celebrating a milestone birthday for the adults. And I loved this idea so wanted to share it as an idea for you all.

I love the idea of honouring yourself and where you are on your important milestones not just the kids.

We hunted bugs and picked flowers.

We spent a lovely morning hunting for bugs, picking flowers, finding fairies and the best sticks. Even when the photoshoot is not for a child’s milestone we still planned the time for this little ones current interests. Making it fun and relaxed to ensure we captured beautiful moments and enduring memories of the time spent together.

The best location is one you are all most comfortable in.

For the most authentic photos, it needs to be authentic. It should be something that you do in your everyday lives, not just a photo shoot. Or because that’s what someone else did. So we did what this family would often do. We went exploring. Found bugs. Gathered sticks. Ran races. Played hide and seek. And it was great fun!

Each photoshoot can be tailored. If you often go out exploring in nature then let’s head to your favourite spots. Equally if your kids are happiest at home in their own environment then a photoshoot at your house or in the garden is the perfect location too. Hands up honesty, my kids prefer life at home so that’s my ideal location. But yours…well that is up to you.
