Why to have professional family portraits?
When was the last time you had family portraits taken? No, I'm not talking about a photo done with your mobile or a group snap at a family BBQ. I'm talking a professional portrait.
As a photographer my job is to do more than snap the shutter. When I create a portrait, I am making more than just a piece of paper with an image on it, I am giving you a timeless piece of art, something that can never be replayed an emotion, a moment in time that is priceless.
Let me start by telling you my story. I am living in Australia, far away from my family. I don't see them very often so moments when we are together are rare and very important.
I have a sister who lives in the Netherlands and my parents who are living in Hungary are not young anymore. When I visited home this last Christmas I had decided and convinced my family to have portraits taken and that's because now I know exactly how important it is.
I am 40 this year and this is the only photo that I have together with my mother and sister.....literally the ONLY one. It`s just a photograph, but I will treasure it forever, a photograph that I`ll proudly place on my wall. A photograph that I will pass on to my children. A photograph which will always remind me of those funny moments that the 3 of us shared while this photo was taken.
Let's face it, with the mobile phones that we have, FB and Insta are the big things these days. It`s quick and easy at no cost. But are these really the photos you want to blow up on a canvas and show off to anyone who walks into your home? Are these the photographs that you want to pass on to your children? Hope not.
Family portraits are an investment. But if you think of creating these photos as art, you're really investing in so much more. I can't think of any better art to put on the walls of a home than art that features the people that you love most. Your teenagers may roll their eyes at it now, but someday they will see the value and continue on their own.
