"Taking pictures is savouring life intensely, every hundredth of a second." - Marc Riboud
Working as a personal branding photographer, I've had the privilege of capturing lots of couples, families, and dogs(!) as part of telling my clients' stories. Having more time and freedom to make magical memories with their families is often their main motivation for building their own beautiful businesses.
What has struck me since taking these images, is just how valuable they become in the weeks, months, and years to come. From the family dog who passed away too soon, to "pictures of the kids before they grow up too much!"
Pictures are often all we have left as time ticks on silently in the background.
One of my favourite things to do on a Sunday afternoon is have tea and cake with my gran as she gets the old photo albums out and I get the opportunity to see my ancestors who passed away long before I was born, or see pictures of my grandparents on their wedding day when my (now 90-year-old) gran was just 21, THAT is the magic of photography.
Which is why I'm thrilled to offer a standalone family portrait package! So whether it's to celebrate a big birthday, a special occasion, or just to capture you and your loved ones just as you are now at this moment in time, I'd love to create beautiful lifestyle family photographs for you and your family.
"Karina is brilliant to work with. She makes everyone feel so comfortable and she has an eye for capturing loving and sweet photos of you all together. Capturing your true selves. Worth every penny!" - Mary
So what would a family shoot with me look like?
I love working on location, using the world around me as my canvas is a challenge I relish. So, whether it's your home and garden, a gorgeous park, colourful street art in the city, or somewhere sentimental that means something only to you, let's make the location we use part of your shoot and your story.
You can expect a lot of fun - no shoot is complete without a considerable amount of laughter!
And ultimately, we'll collaborate to capture beautiful, meaningful, and timeless images (with all the magic that a selfie just can't achieve!) that will last for years to come.
