Why should I hire a professional photographer for my family photos in Ipswich Suffolk?

Please ask yourself a few questions before I begin: When was the last time you got family photos taken? Have you ever had professional photos taken before? Are you sitting on the fence about whether it’s worth it, or whether your iPhone will do?  Let me give you some more information and see if it helps your decision in whether to invest in professional portraiture. If nothing else, it may give you more of an insight into what we do.

Family photos – we all love them, but who is most likely to take them? Mums, I bet it is you! How many cute snaps have you got of your kids with daddy, or running about on their own? I’m sure you have loads, and they are all wonderful memories. 

I should imagine you have a lot of selfies too. But isn’t it frustrating how that camera isn’t as good as the main one, and you end up with blocky images, really lacking in quality? Still cute photos though, of course.

When did you last sit down as a family and look through your phone at your photos? Are you happy to have your photos sitting on your phone, or would you like to see them more often? Beautifully presented around your house, making you smile each time you pass them?

Hiring a professional photographer is so much more than just paying them for an hour to snap away to get a few images. You are paying for the photographer’s time and experience, which is what gives you high quality, correctly exposed and professionally edited images. The time they spend on your images continues long after the session is over. They will spend hours afterwards making sure your images are perfect. These images will be sharp, they will print big, and you can use them for albums and wall art to decorate your home.

Your photographer will use their experience to make the most of the natural light available in your outdoors session, and the best way to position all the members of your family. You will probably realise yourself how difficult it can be to get all family members looking towards the camera at the same time! It can be quite tricky when it comes to young children, but a professional photographer will have the experience to get the best results for you.

The most important thing that professional photographers will capture is your whole family – none of you are missing ‘behind the camera/phone’. Interactions, reactions, playing, laughing. Mums – YOU ARE IN THE PHOTOS! Dress up a bit or come natural, it doesn’t matter, what matters is that you are in the photos for your kids to look back on.

We live in a digital age, everyone wants digital files to put on social media and the freedom to print them when and how they want. However, to really appreciate your images you should print them. And they must be printed by a professional photo lab. High street printers are often not calibrated, and the effort we photographers spend in getting the colours just right are lost when they are printed poorly.

I offer professional prints which are GUARANTEED to be the correct colour and quality that your images deserve. Along with prints you can purchase a stunning canvas of your whole family to hang above your fireplace or in your hallway. Each time you see it you will be reminded of that lovely day and your kids will absolutely love to have it to treasure in the future.
