Hayley and Maxwell, Family Photography: Formby Beach

This was a beautiful summer family photography session that we did late July. Mum, Hayley had been quite specific about what she wanted from her images so we awaited the perfect day with the perfect weather! As you can imagine, we were waiting a while!

However, the shoot was worth the wait and I think the images speak for themselves. We have been fortunate enough to photograph Hayley and her son at least once a year since Maxwell was born three years ago and it’s safe to say they both always look amazing on photographs.  However, I think this has to be my favourite set of photographs so far. They are fun, fresh and capture the love, fun and special bond that both mother and son clearly share. 

Hayley sent me a saying she had found yesterday on the internet which sums up how she feels about the importance of photographs and family photography:

‘One day, all your children will have is pictures of you. Make sure you’re in them. No matter what your hair looks like, your makeup, or your body, they won’t care about any of that, they’ll just want to see you.’

I couldn’t agree more. As photographers we spend our lives taking photographs every where we go. What is just as important to us though, as much as taking the pictures is printing them.  It’s lovely to reflect on how we have all changed in a short space of time and to appreciate the precious times we have had together as a family. Hopefully our photographs not only of ourselves, but of our clients will be treasured by families for years and years to come!

​But for now…I give you Hayley and Maxwell loving beach life!
