A Generation shoot is just what it suggests. Its where all the generations of the family come together for the ultimate family portrait. There are many things in life that you can’t put a price on and I believe that a generation shoot is one of them. Bringing grandparents, parents, children and grandchildren together and capturing the whole family is an honour that I take very seriously and feel very privileged to be trusted with.
On this occasion it was one of the widest age groups I had covered. Ranging from Joan, 94, right down to her great grandson Jack, 8 months. Four generations of this wonderful family altogether for a family portrait. What could be better than that.
The session was a joy for me. I am a people person, which is probably why I love my job. I meet different people every day and when I do a generation shoot I get to not only meet the whole family and see their relationship, bond and love for each other, but I also get to interact with a variety of ages and it teaches me so much. As soon as Sue, Steve and their family arrived you could see the close bond they all had. There was a lovely buzz in the studio and lots of laughter. I loved the way that the grandchildren looked after and helped their grandparents into position and they were full of smiles.
During a generation shoot the main focus is of course the group shot, most families tell me that they are not often all together at the same time so we certainly do not want to miss that important picture. But we also have plenty of time to take lots of different group shots too. As you can see from the pictures below a generation shoot leaves you with an array of pictures to choose from, with every base covered.
I would like to thank Sue for bringing her whole family to see me and I hope they all enjoyed the session as much as I did. It really was an absolute pleasure to take their pictures and I hope I have left them with some priceless pictures that will live on for many more generations.
