Not enough people get family photos taken, at least professional photos. Every family has the vacation portraits—where everyone is a little burnt, one of the kids doesn’t want to smile, and the photographer is a bit shaky. These photos are great and fun to look back on, but sometimes it is nice to get a professional photography session done, plus it generally looks better hanging in your home.
Some people get new family pictures taken every year, which can be fun while your kiddos are growing up, but once they hit a certain age, they most likely will be over the constant photo shoots and may not want to participate. Other families have had professional portraits done once, or not at all.
At Casey Jagoras Photography, family photos are a beautiful memory to hold on to. They are something that become a prized possession and a piece that you want to show off whenever someone is in your home. But if you are not going to get a family photo every year, when should you decide to do them? There are a few prime times to get family portraits taken.
New Family Members
You have your engagement photos and wedding photos, and now have a new addition to your family. This is a great time to get family photos taken. Whether you want to take them with your newborn or wait until your kiddo is a bit older and can add some flare to your portraits, you will want to get a photo shoot before they get too old. With each child you add, it is a good idea to get new family photos taken. As your family grows and you become grandparents, you can have even more fun and make memories with a photo shoot.
As Your Kids Grow
Getting photographs taken when your kids are young is a good idea, but taking more every few years as the grow is an even better idea. You want to look back at their progression, changes, and growth. You don’t want to miss them as they blossom into whoever they end up becoming. It will be fun to look back and see your kids going through different and weird phases.
Before Your Kids Leave
Before your kids leave your home to start their own lives, you will want to get one last good family photograph taken of you all. The most up-to-date photo to keep in your home for years to come. This is a great way to keep a piece of them in your home when they no longer are.
No matter what the reason may be, if it has been a while since you have gotten family photos taken, now is the perfect time to schedule a photo session. Get your family all together, get them excited to capture a moment together, and get a possession that your will cherish for years to come.
