Fаmіlу рhоtо аlbumѕ аnd fаmіlу роrtrаіtѕ оn thе wall are some оf thе mоѕt important оbjесtѕ tо us. Wе оftеn don’t rеаlіsе the іmроrtаnсе оf fаmіlу рhоtоgrарhѕ until it іѕ tоо lаtе.
Family рhоtоѕ соnnесt us tо those generations whо саmе before. By lеttіng your kids ѕее уоur рhоtоѕ frоm thе past аnd thе present, thеу bесоmе соnnесtеd tо their own story. Thеу know the fаmіlу members аnd аnсеѕtоrѕ whо hеlреd ѕhаре thе world аnd person they see tоdау.

A lоt оf uѕ gо lооkіng fоr family photos whеn wе lоѕе a реrѕоn сlоѕе tо us and іt іѕ only nаturаl, wе lооk to оur fаmіlу рhоtоgrарhѕ to help uѕ rеmеmbеr. These рhоtоѕ are the оnеѕ thаt wіll put smiles оn our fасеѕ аnd help uѕ cope wіth thе change оf a реrѕоn nо lоngеr being nеаrbу.
Fаmіlу photos аrе kеерѕаkеѕ that wе wіll trеаѕurе fоrеvеr. Thеrе’ѕ ѕоmеthіng so mаgісаl аbоut ѕееіng уоur уоung оnеѕ’ ѕmіlеѕ іmmоrtаlіzеd іn рrіnt. Sо aside, frоm tаkіng сutе ѕеlfіеѕ tоgеthеr, why not tаkе іt up a nоtсh bу having аn amazing family рhоtоѕhооt with a professional photographer?

Hеrе аrе five reasons why уоu should have a fаmіlу photoѕhооt:

1.  Celebrate life’s major milestones
It allows уоu tо rесоrd рrесіоuѕ milestones: Let’s admit іt, kids grоw up ѕо fаѕt! With just a blink of an еуе, thеу hаvе trаnѕfоrmеd from a tіnу nеwbоrn tо a cheeky tоddlеr. It is best that уоu ѕаvоr these grоwіng up mоmеntѕ. Fаmіlу роrtrаіtѕ аrе a grеаt wау to rеmіnіѕсе and mostly celebrate

One of the most common reason why people come to have a professional photoshoot is “Celebration”, it’s to celebrate the milestones of a person’s life such Birthday… Child, Mum, Dad, Grandparents, Anniversary, 10, 15, 25, 50 years wedding anniversary, New addition to the family, Wedding, Having a newborn baby, or someone’s graduations. If you’ve missed your Graduation shoot at the time you graduated in the past, its never too late to get your graduation / family shots done.

2.  Family portraits sessions are fun!
As professional photographers, we can understand why some people dread family portraits. Many families only experience portraiture where everyone is crammed into a really small room with a bunch of technical equipment, sit still, no messing about, don’t knock anything over, behave are just a few thoughts running through your head. That doesn’t sound fun at all.

But you’ll be glad to know that family photography sessions don’t need to work that way – at least not our sessions! We love capturing families just being themselves. Inside, outside, at your home or any special location, you call the shots and we have lots of suggestions.
All sessions are relaxed and fun with plenty of time allowed to guarantee you get exactly what you want.

3.  Family photos make great home and office décor.
Are your walls looking a little drab? Give your house a pick-me-up by displaying your family’s portrait on your wall. More so, make your keepsakes last by having a professional photographer produce your portrait, as opposed to printing them out any old high street lab.
Today everything is digital which is great for Facebook or instagram but how many photos do you have on a hard drive somewhere on your computer? Do you even know where they are how to find them?
IMMI offer professional high-quality prints which are frame-mounted, canvases, and professionally framed specialty prints which will surely give life to the walls of your home or office for the years to come.

4.  Preserve memories
Family pictures can help preserve wonderful memories. You can look at them and reminisce how awesome it was to be with the people you love. At times when you are far from them, you can simply look at the pictures and feel less sad once you see the smiles on their faces.

5.  You never know when the last chance for a family photo will be…
Life is short and unpredictable. Unfortunate things happen without warning and loved ones may pass unexpectedly. Take advantage of the time you have together now so that you won’t regret putting it off later.

Families are never the same; they’re always growing and changing. This is one of the reasons why we truly love being photographers. With many of our clients, we get the privilege of seeing them grow from a wedding couple, to new parents, to an even bigger expanding family by taking their portraits every year.
Don’t take your family’s current stage for granted, as it only takes a few months for your family to change and grow.

So you’ll surely agree it’s time to get the whole family in the photo.

A lot of family photos are being taken as “selfies” with their smartphones. That’s fine but how many wide angle photos can you take with the camera above your head. Now, try taking a selfie with 8 or more people in the photo. The other option is to have someone take a photo of the entire group but then that person isn’t in the photo. If you book a professional session with IMMI, you’ll get a high quality photo with the entire family in it. Now that’s worth something.

IMMI Family Photoshoot Gift Vouchers– Give the gift of smiles and great memories.
Nothing can be a more personal and sincere gift than a family portrait. And what better way to convey the joy of the entire family but with professionally done family portraits? Your grandparents will surely appreciate your natural smiles and memories of your warm and candid moments more than a blurry smartphone shot of your family. Your grand kids will also always have the piece of history of who you all are today. IMMI gift vouchers are available in increments of £25 therefore 25/50/75 etc.  With a Gift Voucher we always include the session fee so whatever you spend is simply for our products.  They are vaild for a year from the date of purchase and pretty enough to enclose with any special card.

Family portraits are an investment.
Let’s be honest, professional services will always cost more than amateur. There is a reason for that. You get what you pay for. When you invest in quality portraiture you are investing in something that will be valuable for a lifetime. It has value the second you create it and it will become more valuable every single year guaranteed.
Most of us spend so much on things with little or no value but fail to invest in the things that mean the most. Seriously, in an emergency what would you choose to save, your family portrait or your television?

So don’t make the mistake of thinking family portraits aren’t worth spending money on. You won’t make a better investment than one that will serve as a lasting keepsake the entire family can treasure forever, a lot of our families tell us that their family portraits are one of their most treasured possessions. We know our personal family portraits are. Make the time and you will never regret it.

So let’s talk, call Kim or Ted to discuss your family portrait session 0844 351 1397, we would love to hear from you

Come be part of our family, and part of your legacy!
