IMG_9965cAre you getting ready to send your teenage, who will always be your baby, off to college? Saying “see you later” to the one you raised and spent an uncountable amount of time teaching them from right and wrong is about to step out the door and start their journey in a whole new light. Are you ready? We understand that it is never easy seeing someone start a new journey without you, and that is why we’re encouraging you to take family portraits before that day comes!

Because we think that family pictures should tell a story, we have some pretty awesome and unique ideas for your family portraits before you send your “baby” off to college.

  1. Frame it- Holding frames to frame yourself and your family is a great way to capture an image that will create lasting memories.
  2. Got pets?- Family portraits can be silly. If you’re looking to have a great time as a family and don’t want to be completely serious, think about involving your animals! Pets are part of the family too. We’ve seen photos of an entire family photoshopped to ride their dog. The possibilities are endless!
  3. Get outside!- Go outside to your favorite place and wear your favorite outfit. Being unique in your own way will give your portrait a colorful touch that will be fun to capture.
  4. Props- Don’t be afraid to use props during your photo! If you’re a family that loves playing baseball at the park regularly, your photo shoot could be of your entire family playing baseball at a nearby park.

Family portraits don’t always show their value right away. When you rediscover them at a later point in life, you will be able to look back and be happy that you took the time to schedule an appointment. So what are you waiting for? Request your appointment with us online today!
