If you’re organising a family event such as a christening, communion or funeral, then using family photos is one of the best things that you can do. Not only are these incredibly personal photographs of you and your family, but they help to create a sense of community and familiarity which actively encourages people to engage and respond. We think family photos look particularly smart on our range of thank you cards for wedding gifts. Often, we see couples use the professional family portraits they have had taken on their big day. The results are always stunning.

Baby Photos
