Lets face it, the idea of investing in family photos can seem overwhelming, daunting, and exhausting, especially if you have young kids. Some questions you may be asking yourself are-what's the point? Will it really be worth it? What if my kids don't cooperate? Why would I pay for something I can try and do myself?
While these are all valid questions (and ones I have even asked myself), I believe there is so much value in family photos-which is why I do what I do! Today, I want to share 5 reasons why I believe you should consider investing in family photos.
1. Family Photos Capture Your Season of Life
My entire philosophy and passion for photography, is centered around capturing my client's season of life. As we all know, time passes by so quickly. Pregnancies are over in 9 months, babies are no longer babies after a few short years. Toddlers quickly become children and young adults. While all of these seasons don't last, what does last are photos. Investing in family photos allows you to remember those seasons of your life that you hold close to your heart.
2. Family Photos Celebrate Milestones
Family photos are a wonderful way to celebrate milestones. Whether your baby just turned 1, you're celebrating an anniversary, or your parent is cancer free, family photos allow you to celebrate the joys of reaching important milestones in your family.
3. Family Photos Create Memories for Your Family
I speak often about the feel of my family session and always let potential clients know that my sessions are fun, laid-back, and adventurous. I want your family session to feel like a fun family outing so that your family photos reflect the love and connection you have for one another. My family sessions are playful and active. They allow parents to have fun with their children, to smother them in kisses, and usually end in some sort of game or tickle fight. I want my clients to leave thinking "that was a fun family outing." Family photos capture that sweet time you had together.
4. Family Photos Make Great Gifts for Grandparents (and Yourself!)
Nearly every Christmas, without fail, my husband and I give our parents a framed photo of our family. (And they never tire of it either). I don't know about you, but our parents are difficult to shop for! The one thing they cannot buy at the store though, are pictures of their grandkids. Family photos make wonderful Christmas, birthday, Mother's Day, and Father's Day presents, both for the grandparents and for yourself.
5. Family Photos Create Beautiful Artwork for Your Home
Finally, the main purpose of investing in family photos, is so you can display them in your home. Whether you are an expert at interior design or you've never even stepped foot in a Hobby Lobby, family photos are an easy way to decorate your home and add timeless beauty to your walls and shelves.
