So it turns out I am really nervous at having my photo taken. Yep, you read it here first. A professional photo shoot makes me squirm. If its anyone other than my sons or husband taking the photo, I feel all sorts of awkward.

But then I met Salome from Yellow Lab Pet Photography and she changed my opinion. She grounded my thinking and got everyone relaxed and ready for our very first family photo shoot.

We have two sons, Ben (10) and Luc (12) and we have never had a family photo done professionally. We haven’t prioritised family photos before and now I wish we did. I am so glad we have these treasured memories.

So when Salome asked me to be a guest blogger for her and answer her most common question from clients “What do I wear for my family and pet photo shoot”, I jumped at the chance to work with her. Kindly, we were gifted the photo shoot and 2 of the prints we chose from the shoot.

The shoot experience was great, Salome’s pre-work and her coaching of us on the day was terrific. She made us all feel relaxed, she fell in love with Maggie, our Golden Retriever and made us all feel ok about having photos taken and how we were all situated. You can imagine that if I felt nervouse, my sons and husband were even more so!

She got our family dynamic quickly. For the full story on what to wear, you can read my guest blog on her site here.

As a treat for SOS followers, Salome has created a special offer for you below. I urge you to get amongst it – having precious family photos is something you will never regret and our boys have loved seeing us all in print! Its even more special to have your pets included and Salome managed to capture one with our elusive cat Gizmo and some very special shots of our puppy Maggie. Thanks Salome. x
