Family

Family is the most important thing by mike turner photography
Family is the most important thing by mike turner photography

We love to serve families at our studio in Lowton and have been doing so since 2008. Families come in all shapes and sizes with all sorts of characters at the heart of them. Families as small as two and as large as, well, many.

Great families lie at the heart of our communities and should be celebrated and treasured.

We specialise in celebrating families with photoshoots for each and everyone one of the family members as individuals as well as to enjoy and share together.

Our love of serving families runs deep, we love our family of relatives and friends, who include customers who we’ve got to know well over the years as we’ve seen their family grow and evolve. It’s a privilege to have an opportunity to capture those moments in time that will long be treasured, celebrating milestones, stages and events in their lives.

I decided to write the following piece about my thoughts about family, hope you enjoy it…..

Family don’t have to be blood related, they can include friends, pets, neighbours, colleagues. It’s not about the genes we have in common it’s about the love we share. Love is what connects us, what bonds us together, what fills us up.

Family energises us because if someone else can have belief in us, we have permission to believe in ourselves.

A family can be as small as two or has big as many. If you’re alone don’t be, reach out, there are people who care. We care! Strangers are potentially family you’ve yet to get to know.

You can’t take family for granted, they are a blessing not a promise. Love and care for them, share and bond with them. Celebrate their individualism and the uniqueness of your shared connection because no two connections will ever be the same.

When we experience the loss of a loved one, it is often the things that drove us mad in life that we miss of them in death, at least it has been in my experience.

Our faults and hang ups are part of what make us uniquely us. Give them space to be appreciated in ourselves and in others, particularly family, and not just in death but in life.

Love, cherish, celebrate each other every day. Smile, laugh and remember good times shared and never forget.

The Starfish Story

It’s the Great North Run day today, and this story, which has featured heavily in the sentiment of the day, and the desire to help others, really caught my attention, so I thought I would include it here. Hope you get some motivation to help others from it.

Smile: A Poem By Spike Milligan?

I love this poem.

“Smile” is a poem by the late, great Spike Milligan that promotes the positivity of smiling.

But was it actually penned by the comedy legend at all? There are lots of websites attributing Spike as author, but I have also heard it might have been originally written by Karen McLendon-Laumann.

With both people being linked as authors, I’ll mention both in this post, but whoever actually came up with this beauty, it’s a great gift to the world. 

We could all do with smiling more, that is for sure. the science is pointing to the health benefits of feeling more positive. You can’t help feeling better when you’re smiling. 

So does that lead on to the possibility that having a photoshoot is actually good for your mental health? I’d like to think so.

We are in the business of making people smile, and in return it makes us feel better, so please come and join in the fun at Mike Turner Photography, we have lots of photoshoot experiences to enjoy.
