If you are looking for ideas on how to present your photos from your family lifestyle session with me a portrait album is my clients’ favourite way. Once you have seen your gallery of images from your photo shoot and made your choices, I will design a gorgeous album for you. These albums are beautifully put together with satin finish photographic paper and lay flat pages. The layflat pages mean that your photos can go across the central fold without a part of the image becoming lost in the crease.

An album allows you to tell the story of the time we spend together and include both relaxed candid shots of real giggle moments and more familiar portrait photos. In this case the album starts in the stunning mountain village of Gimmelwald in the Swiss alps and covers our walk into the pastures, jumping around with THE most epic backdrop ever, family portraits of cuddles and hugs. Then there was the girls with a huge grasshopper and then the wander back down the lane finishes it off perfectly.

Here’s what F&R said about their album –

Thank you so much WE LOVE THE ALBUM and it was such a delight to open the beautiful wrapping !!! You’re one in a million <3.  Thank you Gill for creating these wonderful stills of our family at such a happy moment in time, we will treasure them always. “

Not only is this a beautiful example of a family lifestyle album, but the family also purchased a couple of smaller duplicate albums. In their case these were so that the girls would each have a record of this magical family moment in the mountains to look back on, but they are also ideal as a gift for for grandparents.
