Why Family Photographs are so Special

It was so great to celebrate my cousins 30th birthday at the weekend with lots of family. We were lucky to have so much sunshine that afternoon and sat in the garden together catching up and enjoying amazing food!

Of course, I was pleased to take a few photos to capture my cousins birthday, our afternoon,  and some special group photos. Like most people, my family don't love having photos taken, but I believe in what I'm capturing and know how important it will be to us all one day even if they don't appear to appreciate it right in that moment!!

Later on, when the rain started to come, we moved inside. As so often happens on these occasions - family albums came out, and everyone started pouring over beautiful old photographs as memories flooded back.

Photos of our past really bring us together. I mean, how much do we LOVE looking at old photos of our childhood holidays, the hilarious hairstyles and fashion trends that we thought were fantastic at the time! The group photos of family members who are no longer with us.

I'm sure we can all connect to that moment where you come across a few old photos and get sucked into the memories for literally hours!

I care that we realise that those moments are happening NOW too. This moment in time, right now, is also worth documenting.

Even if things feel so normal at the moment, it's exactly the reason why you'll love to look back on it. To remember life as it was, and things the way they used to be... The people who were there...

Behind the scenes on my Paris shoot!

It was so great to head back to shoot in Paris earlier this week... I love this beautiful city and it is always such an honour to get to travel to meet my clients at their dream locations!

I had such a fun day shooting with my beautiful client around some stunning settings (we are spoilt for choice in Paris!) and I'm so excited about the photographs we created!

Heres a quick video I made after our time together.

Where would your dream photo shoot be? Where do you plan to travel this year? How would portraits of you taken in that location serve you?

I would love to join you there. Email me at becky@beckyrui.com and let's explore the possibilites!
