Why You Should Take Yearly Family Portraits
Making Time for Your Family Portrait
How many times have you wanted to schedule a family photo, maybe for your Christmas cards, and then you looked at your calendar and thought, how can we get this in? Life gets hectic (I understand!) and you find you don’t have the time to schedule everyone for a beautiful portrait. Or maybe you have albums full of photos of your kids, but none with you and your spouse in them because one of you is always taking the pictures. This is why hiring a professional family photographer is always a great idea. Instead of worrying about taking a photo yourself, you can let the professional photograph, edit, and even print your photos; providing you with memories to cherish for the rest of your life. We will work with you family, and your schedule to make sure you have the perfect family portrait for your family and your home.
Capture changes in your family.
From baby’s first steps, to braces, to high school, as your children grow up…. you don’t want to miss a moment. Having an annual family photo taken allows you to document all the changes in your family, whether it’s a new addition or a rapidly growing child (my 10 year old grew a few inches this year, it happens so fast!!) Professional family photos will be something you and your children can look back on for years to come.
Create art for your home.
What better way to decorate your home or office than with beautiful photos of the ones you love? You may have plenty of pictures of your babies on your cell phone; and even some selfies of the whole family, but those are hardly the kind of pictures you want blown up on canvas and hanging above the fireplace. A professional family photo shoot helps you ensure that everyone will be in the photo, looking their best.
Start a tradition.
Whether you grew up taking family photos or not, it’s a great tradition to start with your family. Someday your grandchildren and maybe even their children will look back on your family photos, so it’s important to have quality, professional images for future generations to enjoy. And once you start the tradition of taking family photos each year, your children can continue it when they have families of their own.
Eliminate the stress of taking your own photos.
Instead of trying to organize and shoot a family photo yourself, a professional can do the work for you. Professional photographers work frequently with families and children; and will know how to keep your kids happy and pose them without them even knowing they are posing. Even better, we help with printing your pictures, so you know you’re getting the best of the best, in high quality images of your family.
