Simmonds Family | Hyde Park

Yesterday we met with the Simmonds Family at Hyde Park in Perth for some family photos.

Hyde Park is one of our favourite places to take photos and is perfect almost all year round. However, being such a gorgeous place means that it attracts a lot of visitors, which of course isn’t ideal for family photos. We originally had scheduled the photoshoot for last weekend but had to postpone due to rain, so we joked that last weekend would have been great with no people around. All jokes aside, there isn’t much that stops us from taking great photos.

Almost every family that we have ever taken photos with has had the father saying something along the lines of “I don’t like my photo being taken”. I have to admit to them – ‘Neither do I”. It’s true. If someone asks me to smile for a photo I can’t help but feel a little awkward. I have strange thoughts running through my head like; am I standing up straight? Am I pulling that awkward smile I always do? Do my hands look weird? Have they taken the photo yet? I can guarantee that there are loads of people out there who think these sorts of crazy things as soon as the camera is pointed at them.

Its because of my own awkwardness that I have made our photoshoots different. We specialise in taking photos with real smiles and genuine emotion. We try our best to get people to laugh with us, but I’ll admit that there are times when people laugh at us instead. Our clients are too busy enjoying themselves to think about anything else but having fun.
