Family Photography at the Seaside

We always love the chance to do a bit of family photography. It provides a fascinating record of the lives of our loved ones for generations to come.  In this era of instantly forgotten, camera-phone snapshots, getting proper photographs taken and printed out seems to have fallen out of fashion.  We’re genuinely worried that an entire generation may grow up to find that there are no photos of themselves and their family to enjoy the way that we are able to.  Memory cards broken, cloud storage passwords forgotten, pictures simply lost beneath an expanding library of selfies and screen grabs or even technology moving on to a place where we don’t view our pictures in the same way.  Printed photos have been enjoyed for well over a century now so it warms our hearts to meet people who find it as important as we do.

Sylvia is from Canada. They have a Scarborough there too but her extended family live in England so they all decided to meet up in Scarborough UK and invited us along to take some pics.

It was a scorcher of a day so we took advantage of the beach. Sand-castles, donkey rides, paddling and ice-cream? You’d be daft not to!

These are our favourite types of shoots. Just hang out and do something fun. We get to take pictures of happy people and you get family photography that shows you as you truly are at your best!
