Family Lockdown – Photography At A Distance

By Lovegetssweeter @LoveGetsSweeter

Are you getting used to family life in lockdown now?

Is it starting to feel like the new normal for you and your little ones?

As a family photographer based in Burscough (sunny Lancashire) it became our normal to capture our family life at home. To capture a bit of our every day in photographs and in video to document a little bit of family history during the corona virus pandemic.

In this post I'd like to share with you a simple idea that can help you also capture a little bit of lockdown life too. In a safe, socially distanced way (something I never thought would need to be a selling point with family photography).

Family Life At A Distance - Lockdown Family Photography

"The best thing has definitely been no longer being rushed to get anywhere. No more shouting to get ready for school and rushing to get out and on time For things. Hopefully I can slow down once normality resumes and not feel quite so stressed doing the school run and things. It's been nice just going at our own pace."

Your New Normal - Capturing Family Life In Lockdown

Imagine if you could capture a little bit of your family life right now to look back on with your children and chat about what life was like in 2020?

How life got a little slower and you all spent even more family time together. No rushing to get anywhere, just being at home together.

Imagine if having a lockdown family shoot actually felt pretty relaxed and you hired a family photographer who could capture a few natural, candid moments of you all together outside your home?

It would feel quick, easy and even enjoyable as you all enjoy taking a bit of time out to play together in your garden.

No pressure, no need to posing and you get to choose which family photos you'd love to keep from the socially distanced session.

We all have the same worries as parents when it comes to having professional photos taken, don't we?

"My biggest worry was that the children wouldn't socially distance - which Pippa struggled with. But you made me feel totally at ease. I was also worried the kids wouldn't want to do anything and want to just go inside and play but you captured great shots both inside and outside so it worked quite well"

An Insight Into Family Life - Photography and Videography Offer

Oh and I should add, these family lockdown sessions are a little bit different to what you may've seen going viral on your social media.

Firstly, I'm a documentary family photographer aiming for candid family moments. As best I can in a short space of time whilst keeping my distance! It's about you and you being together.

The special part is that it's not just about photography. What you'll love the most about this candid family session is that you'll get your very own mini family film too...

An Alternative Family Doorstep Shoot

In just half an hour I'll capture both photos and video for you. Documenting a little look in to your more relaxed (or maybe more chaotic) family life at home.

Before expertly editing a handful of family photos and a short family film for you to remember this time in family life.

Be it their love for dressing up. Their favourite toys or 'things'. Or even hearing their favourite words, phrases or that cute giggle they've developed.

Having your own family video takes the family memories to a whole new level and with no extra pressure from you.
