Photography is all about memories. Images have great power to remind us of places and people we love. That’s especially true of family, which is why it’s such a privilege to be entrusted with creating multi-generational portraits. Having a group photo with new babies and grandparents is making a statement about what’s important, what matters. It’s a chance to get together, laugh, catch up and stand together, literally.
I’ve created several four generational family portraits, which have all been pretty special. When Jackie phoned up asking if I could photograph five generations of her family the next day, the answer was an emphatic yes! As you can see from the image below it worked out beautifully and it was a real pleasure to take everyone into the hills overlooking Cheltenham. The liquid gold of the late afternoon sun certainly adds to the story of precious family time together.
