If you are a busy mum and you struggle with how your kids seem to be growing up overnight, right in front of your eyes, while you're still trying to find the time to tick "get family photos done" off your to-do list, you've come to the right place. Once you discover my stress-free approach to family portraits you'll be able to stop time, just for a little while, so you can spend some quality time with the kiddos and enjoy ready-to-hang framed images of your family delivered to your door.
I'm Andrew Bigwood, and I've been shooting portraits since late 2009, and was first published in January 2011, in Advanced Photography Magazine.
I've worked in the family domain as a domestic interiors painter throughout a large part of my working life, and making the transition into family portrait photography felt like a natural move, allowing me to continue in that family environment, swapping my creative paint brush for a camera!
Understanding the family environment is important, because I know the pressures that parents are under each day, in getting their kids out of bed , dressed and fed and delivered to their respective schools.
Then repeat backward in the afternoon, not forgetting all the other activities the kids are involved in, and that doesn't even cover the parents jobs, out-of-work interests and occasional social life!
My point is, I'm used to dealing with busy people - parents that need help reaching their objectives, and safe in the knowledge that they can leave it in the expert hands of someone like myself.
Before I forget, I've created a resource that might interest you, about Family Time.
Just a few ideas about making time to spend as a family and how to enjoy that time together.
