A Remembrance Sunday tribute from Divers Photography.

Tomorrow is Remembrance Sunday. A day where we take the time to remember the end of World War I and most of all, remember our fallen soldiers and the men who bravely fought for our country. The men who selflessly put themselves forward to protect the lives of people they had never even met, and gave their lives for our freedom.

Germany and the Allies signed an armistice to agree to stop fighting just after 5am on the 11th November 1918. By 11am, World War I officially came to an end.

Lonely poppy, armistice day, for the fallen, we will remember, 2 minutes silence, world war 1

Here at Divers Photography, Remembrance Sunday brings us all feelings of incredible admiration at the bravery of our soldiers, and absolute heartbreak for them too. It’s a day that we make a point of acknowledging and we always take part in the two minute silence from 11am.

We hope that you like our photograph of the beautiful poppies that we captured.

On the 11th hour, of the 11th day, of the 11th month, we will remember them.

Family portrait shoots are a wonderful experience for all the family to enjoy, but Christmas time is one of the best times to treat yourself and your loved ones to a photo session.

Here are our 5 reasons why you should have a family portrait shoot this Christmas!

5 reasons why you should have a family portrait shoot this Christmas | Divers Photography

1. To create everlasting memories for the next generations of your family
We always tell our clients to exist in print, because if you exist in print, your memory will last forever. We feel that it’s so important to keep your sense of identity and pass your character down the line. Not only is it incredibly comforting to your family, but it’s also a beautiful keepsake to look back on and remember your lovely memories over the years.

2. It’s a great boost of self-esteem
There’s nothing more wonderful than thoroughly enjoying your family portrait shoot and seeing the beautiful results afterwards. Seeing happy, relaxed photographs of ourselves with our loved ones not only gives us a real sense of pride and love, but it also boosts our self-esteem too. When we’re photographed in our best light, we feel confident within ourselves and learn to love ourselves for who we are. We’re at our best when we’re with the people that we love, so let us capture that beautiful energy on camera so that you can feel it again each time you look at your photographs for years to come.

3. It’s a great investment
Family portrait shoots are not only a great investment personally, but they make wonderful gifts too. All too often Christmas presents are bought without too much thought and soon cast aside after the festive period. With a beautiful family portrait, you’ll not only keep it and treasure it forever, but you’ll want to proudly display it too. Whether you purchase a family portrait experience for someone special or buy photographs to send to your loved ones as gifts, we can guarantee it’ll be the most thoughtful and memorable gift under the tree. Photographs are so much more than a material object; they’re an investment in yourself, your family and your legacy.

4. To enjoy an experience with all the family
Family Portrait sessions are fun and exciting experiences. It’s a time for the family to come together ahead of the festive season and enjoy precious time together. Christmas is often a hectic time of year so taking the time out to sit back and appreciate each other is so important and all the more meaningful in-between the chaos. Not only will you create beautiful memories that you can give out as Christmas gifts, but also you’ll strengthen your bond together as a family and walk away with a beautiful, positive experience to look back on.

5. To document the growth of your family
We live in a world where everything is so instant that it’s sometimes hard to remember to take a step back and see how far we have come or how much we have changed over the years. Having a regular family portrait helps us to remember our past and look forward to our future. Make sure that your children have some beautiful memories to share with their families once they grow up by booking your family portrait shoot today.

Just recently we had the pleasure of working on location. It was a beautiful family photo shoot in North Yorkshire. Tasneem and Simon asked us to come along to photograph them and their gorgeous children; Zak, Zahra and Zavier.

We travelled to North Yorkshire to photograph the family at their lovely home and beautiful grounds. The children were very relaxed and Zavier couldn’t wait to proudly share with us his collection of cars as soon as we arrived! Throughout the photo shoot the children were amazing, and mum and dad were well behaved too! Sue & I had great fun as we captured some beautiful photographs of them all.

Today we had the pleasure of welcoming one of our friends and past client into our studio. We were looking so forward to seeing David, we first met him many years ago as a business contact, and have since photographed both him and his lovely family on a couple of occasions. Today though, David was coming to have his photographs taken for visual branding for his business.

We were so excited for David to see our beautiful studio – a lot has changed since we saw him last and we couldn’t wait for him to see our gorgeous, purpose built space! We were even more thrilled when he pulled up at the studio and realised his lovely Mum had also come along to surprise us! She’s such a wonderful lady and we were so, so happy to see her once again.

Corporate Headshots and Visual Branding Shoot with David | John Divers Photography

We laid out some lovely pastries ready for the occasion (a treat we like to put on for our breakfast shoot clients!) and had fresh coffee brewing whilst we sat and reminisced about old times before getting underway with our shoot.

We had such a good morning with David and his mum that was full of laughs and great conversation.  We can’t wait for David to see the rest of his professional headshots, we think he looks great!
