Family Portraits: Why It’s Worthwhile
Family portraits are a tradition that dates back to the time of the Roman Empire. Family members would gather together and have their portrait painted as a way to memorialize themselves for future generations. Family portraits also serve other purposes, such as helping children remember who they look like; and how their family is connected.
Family photos can bring people closer together, even if they live far away from one another or only see each other once in awhile.
Family photographs provide priceless memories that last forever, no matter what happens in life later on down the line. It’s worth it to invest in professional photography services because these images will never go out of style!
Your Family, Your Story
Your life as a family is like a storybook. A day a page, a month, a chapter, and a year in a volume.
The storybook of your family should contain beautiful images of your family so everyone remembers how they look at that particular time of their life.
Photos can powerfully depict the ties of each family member and the strong bond that they share. Our parent’s generation might not have taken as many photos as this leaves many of us in the lurch when it comes to reflecting on our childhood visually or recalling important memories from events captured in film. One of the great wonders of our new generation is the access we have to cameras and technology, all of this makes us less apprehensive about getting in front of the camera and allowing a photographer to shoot away our precious family portrait.
We focus on the all-important moments of your modern-day family. Captured digitally are the moments shared between loved ones. With a focus on fun moments, this is the perfect opportunity to get shots done that reflect your family in their truest form.
What People LOVE in Their Life Storybook?
My clients often tell us that they love natural pictures. Something simple, but simple often is the most difficult thing to achieve. As Leonardo DaVinci says: “Simplicity Is The Ultimate Sophistication”
People say, I want candid photos, what do they mean by candid? are they supposed to do something for the camera? if yes, what to do? If they do it, it becomes contrive, and being contrive is one a big no no and clients hate it.
When your kids are under 3, their little silly face is cute, adorable and we certainly love those images, however, the same silly face when they are 9 or 10 years old, probably something that we want to avoid. In short, clients love images that is simple, natural and images that is age-appropriate.
We believe that by allowing children to just be themselves and engage with them as they play naturally allows great images to be captured of your little ones.
Main reasons that families choose to get family photos done:
Every family wants to feel proud of their family. A beautifully captured family portrait is often a mean to show those proud moments.
Secondly, families want something tangible to show their children’s growth.
Beautifully captured images offer parents an opportunity to stop the moment as we all know that time waits for no one, as the kids get bigger; or the parents are getting older.
Whilst you plan to get your own family portraits done annually, let’s also remember to invite the grandparents to join in the shots; or organise everyone to do an extended family portrait.
After all, many of your parents are providers for you when you were younger; care-givers of your children; it is even more important if they live overseas.
Displaying a tangible form of family photo on the walls of your home sends a strong message to your family and everyone who enters your home that your family means more to me than anything else in the world.
All you have to do is ask someone what he or she would grab if their house were on fire. I’m sure most people you ask would say their family photos. Family portraits frame freeze important parts of our lives that often remind us why we work, love, and live.
Your family is unique and your story is worth telling. A professional family portrait session will help you capture your story and create memories that will last a lifetime. Family portraits are a way to celebrate your relationships and connect with your loved ones. They are also a great way to commemorate important events, such as births, weddings, and milestones. Professional family portraits are a beautiful way to preserve your family’s legacy for future generations.

Hart could capture the genuine smiles and expressions on my kids’ faces, and that was what is important for me. The photo shoot was spontaneous and family-directed, i.e. you get the photos that YOU want. – Denise Rachel Yong
Lovely photos we had. Hart was actively engaged with my girls and both my hubby and I do not need to even “control” them. he totally had them under his control. And he really responded back with the photos taken so fast within 48 hours. – Sal Tan
Hart took photos of our family recently, and we were so impressed with his great demeanor and artistic eye. He is great with kids, and he even managed to get our 18 month old grumpy baby to crack a few smiles. Each setting he picked for the photos was really lovely. Very happy with our experience! – Lisa Blackard
