We love Generational Portraits so much because they bring families together including the Grandparents. We think it’s vital to record the most important people in our lives just being together. The wonderful Buchanan Family had asked us to create their Generational Portrait, so we decided to ask them a few questions about their motivation for the portrait session and the experience. here is what they had to say:
Why we did the family shoot:
My love of photos and my family became the motivation to organise a photo shoot as a present for dad for Father’s Day. Life can pass us by so quickly and change around us. I thought this would be a special gift to have as a permanent reminder of the family at this specific time in our lives.
What did Dad think about doing the shoot?
Dad was wrapped, he thought it was a great idea. He knows how busy our lives all are with work, traveling and my twin sister lives interstate and is busy with the little ones so he couldn’t think of a better way to get us all together and take some snaps and capture our family.
What is the importance of a generational photo to you:
I think it’s really important. Stories of family members last a lifetime but photos last forever! It’s a wonderful way to preserve the legacy that is our family! It’s not only a great way to document a growing family but also a celebration of the love that my parents have for us and the grandchildren.
What was your favourite memory of the shoot?
Wow, I have a few but my favourite moment was when we all came back to the studio a week later to do the photo viewing. Going through the photos was really fantastic. I was re living the beautiful and fun morning that we all had together at the park. I am so thankful to have these beautiful photos of the people I love. You captured each person so perfectly.
We had a fun and memorable morning with many laughs and entertainment provided by the little ones. We all look back on these photos with fond memories of a special morning in the park. We will treasure these pictures. A very big heart felt thank you from me and my family.
