Photoshoot anything. Thoughts, stories and tips from Team Perfocal.

Christmas is the perfect time of year to come together as a family; no matter how old or distant, at Christmastime families across the country reunite to share the festive joy.

In November of 2019, this young family wanted to capture the Christmas spirit in all its glory. The two girls, Nora and Elise, were still so small and so in-love with Christmas, mum Miranda didn't want to let this special time slip by without having amazing photos to honour the memories.

All photos by Perfocal photographer

To start the process of getting her photos, all it took was for Miranda to fill out Perfocal's short booking form with her time, date and details. Within the week she had been allocated her professional photographer, Juliet, who came to the family home to take some beautifully festive family portraits.

Type of shoot: Family portraits
Location: East Dulwich, London
Package: 2 hours (£189)
Add-ons: None

To start the 2 hour photoshoot, Juliet focussed on the little ones and their parents playing together, capturing the love and intimate moments between young siblings and parents.

Later on, mum brought out some fairy-lights and Christmas decorations to add some festive flair to their family photos.

The lights and decorations were the perfect props for the family to play in front of the camera, and made the photos Christmas card-worthy.

The family living room was the perfect place for the photos, giving the pictures a personal touch and immortalising their family home, along with themselves, at this precious stage.

Juliet did a brilliant job capturing the Christmas magic with this London family. These photos are a family memory to cherish for a lifetime. Don't miss out on celebrating your family with professional pictures as adorable as these.

Christmas family portraits are a great idea for your outgoing Christmas cards this year, and even make a wonderful gift for the grandparents or extended family.
