Family means different things to different people, for some it's them and their partner, for others it includes their children and for others it's aunts, uncles, grandparents and grandchildren.
I can come and take photos of your family, as a couple or with children or in groups to give you a lasting memory of your family at this time in your life.
I like to capture people as naturally as possible and with children it's often better to let them be themselves (with a little prompting).
It could be that you want to mark an occassion; birth, engagement, anniversary. Or it could be that you just want a current family/couple photo.
