Our Family Portraits are Priceless!

The Family Portrait and its lifetime value.

Family Photography has been around for a long time. It is one of the few things that you can see change through the generations, especially if it’s displayed in your home. If you want to capture moments with your family and share them for years to come, then this article will be perfect for you!

The value of beautiful Family Photography 

The value of beautiful Family Photography is to share them through the generations. A family Portrait Session at Duo Photo’s Studio will provide you and your family with Portraits that will last and bring a lifetime of joy to you and your family’s homes.

Multi Generation Family Portraits

We as a generation understand the value of family photography, as we are always looking back on how much ourselves or our children have changed. How many times have we looked back on the photographs of Grandparents and Great-grandparents, Aunts and Uncles and remembered them with great fondness if they are no longer with us. 

Precious Family photographs Lost

Yet even though we take more photographs now than any other generation, so many precious family photographs are lost forever, due to either lost or broken phones containing precious memories that have never been printed. 

The true value of Framed Printed Wall Art, Albums and Photographs.

Most of us however, if we are lucky enough, still have amazing printed family Photographs of our Grandparents/ Great-grandparents, as mentioned earlier. as you can see below, here is a photograph of my Great Grandparent’s Wedding taken on 26th October 1918. We are now in 2022. This is a very treasured family keepsake that was passed down from my Great Grandmother, who was alive until I was 12, it was then passed to my Grandmother, then my Mother who still has the original photograph in her home.

Family Portraits bring comfort to those too far away to visit regularly.

The key to securing the memory of your beautiful family and its heritage is Professional Portrait Photography, taken in our beautiful studio. We will create artwork for you, that will be worthy of a family heirloom to be passed down to your children as they grow up and start their own new home. 

Grandparents, Aunts or Uncles who are alone, or live far from you and may not see you as often as they would like, will at least have the comfort of seeing their beautiful family every day on their living room wall. This is the true value of Family Portraiture, that is why we say “our family Photos are priceless”

I went to Duo Photo to have a Company head shot done. The two guys Edson and James were great making me feel at ease and I was very happy with the outcome.
The place is immaculate and I would have no problem in returning if I want anymore photography done.
They also showed me some corporate videos that they have done and again they looked great and it was very interesting how they actually shot these?
100% all round good experience!

This guy James did an excellent job of taking photos of my Guest House in The Lakes. He was professional and took time over detail. I will be using him again next year when and as my rooms change. Very happy with the results.

I took my partner and daughter here as a birthday gift and we had a fantastic time. My daughter is only 2 so I was worried it would be a difficult shoot. I’m glad to say I was wrong as she was made to feel completely at ease and really got into the shoot. We’ve ended up with so many great photographs the only problem I have now is picking which ones to take home. I could not recommend duo photo highly enough. Professional, friendly and extremely helpful.
