I would say 99% of parents like having photographs of their children growing up, but many never get around to booking a photoshoot to get those moments captured well. Of course, as a family photographer I am going to say, just do it.
It is not a choice you will regret.
So if you are wondering, do you fall in to one of the below five categories …
Yes you are deservedly biased in thinking that your kids are gorgeous, so you know you will get stunning photos of them that you will absolutely love.
Your pets are such an important part of the family and your children will want to look back and remember them when they are your age.
You get to have an hour, an afternoon, or even a day, where you get to spend time together as a family. No gadgets, no tv and just a lot of laughter.
Most adults do not want to be present in their family photographs but your children will want you to be in them and how long is it since you, as the parents, got to be photographed professionally so you look fabulous – your wedding?! You can even have a family portrait that is more like a landscape image, to go on your wall, if you are too self-conscious to have a close up.
You all get to regress and have hugs, that are few and far between now, as the children grow up, because they are way too cool for that.
What will make you decide to go ahead and book that photoshoot this year?
