In the hustle and bustle of everyday life, planning your next portrait session may not always be the top priority for you and your family. But, as your friendly family portrait photographer, I’m here to remind you that it should be! I fully believe documenting your family professionally every year should be a priority. Your family’s story and memories matter. Hiring someone trained to capture your special moments is important. Let’s talk a little more about why professional family portraits do matter in today’s blog post!
One of the things I love most about family portrait sessions is that we get to capture each of your family member’s personalities. And not just that, we get to capture your interactions. Those little moments that make you smile at home are preserved. The laughs, the jokes that get told, the side eyes… all of matters. My job isn’t simply to get everyone to look at the camera at the same time. In fact, I’d argue it’s the opposite. As a lifestyle family photographer, I want to preserve those little “mundane” moments. I look for the things that happen organically between each of you at any given moment. Those are the things you want to remember, trust me.
Professional family portraits are converted into high quality family heirlooms like your albums or wall art. These precious mementos will become family treasures as the years pass. Plus, who doesn’t want to see their beautiful family all around their home? Bring a little life and personality to your house with your own incredible pieces of artwork, featuring your family!
As parents, it’s easy to be the one who snaps all the photos but never GETS in the photos. Believe me, I too still have a camera roll full of my kids and my husband. But not quite as many of me and the kids (even as a photographer!). A professional family portrait session makes sure everyone gets in the frame – and is captured. To top it off, you can even borrow something from my client wardrobe so you’ll feel your best in front of the camera! The bottom line is: you SHOULD be in the photo, too. So these professional portraits help accomplish that goal.
Family portraits are about more than capturing a photo for your holiday card. (Though, that’s a great reason to get new portraits done!) It’s about truly documenting what your family is like at this stage of life, forever. Family portraits are a beautiful way to capture your family’s story to preserve for today – and tomorrow.
