If you have a family, I’m sure there have been times when you’ve contemplated your kids and said to yourself: “They’re getting so big all of a sudden”; or: “The time goes so fast.” On the other hand, maybe you’ve said to your spouse: “You know we should have a family portrait taken before they move out, haha.” So here’s my question - why are you putting it off? To give you a push, here are seven reasons to have a family portrait taken by a professional.
Capture Life’s Most Precious Moments
It’s a truism; families never stay the same. Everyone is always growing older and changing. This is a big reason why I love being a family photographer. With my family clients, I too see them grow when I take their portraits every year or so. Remember that the time of the photo session will never come around again.
Professional Sessions are Enjoyable
In the past, you may have been put off by family portrait sessions if you’ve only experienced them at the mall. Ask yourself, how pleasurable is it for your family to be crammed into a really small room with a waiting line of people staring at you through a glass wall. That doesn’t sound like a good time at all. I guarantee that a family portrait with me behind the lens will be a fun experience.
Portraits can be Informal
It’s not a given that a family photography session has to be a formal affair with everyone dressed up in their best clothes. I love to capture a moments when a family is relaxed and just being themselves. I have a chat with you before your session to discuss things like clothing and poses. At home, outside, or at any special family location, you call the shots, and I take them.
You Get the Whole Family
I know you take “selfies” with your smartphones; everyone is doing it these days. But, ask yourself, how many wide-angle photos can you take holding the camera above your head? Now, try getting six or more people in the picture. I’ll take a professional, high-quality photo with the entire family in it, including the dog, and from the right angle.
Provides the Ideal Gift
Nothing can be more personal and sincere as a gift than a portrait of your family. Your parents, grandparents, and other relatives will surely appreciate your natural smiles and candid moments caught by a professional photographer. So much more beautiful than a blurry smartphone shot.
Great on Your Walls
Are your walls looking a little bare? Give your home or office a pick-me-up by displaying your family’s portrait. I know that today everything is digital, but do you even know how many photos you have tucked away on some hard drive, or even how to find them? I offer high-quality professional prints, and everythng is ready to display. No funning around to find the right size frames
A Treasured Investment
Let’s be honest, professional services aren’t cheap, but you get what you pay for. With quality portraiture, you are investing in something that will have value for you and your family for a lifetime. Seriously, in an emergency ask yourself what would you choose to save, your family portrait or your TV? Many of my families tell me that their family portraits are some of their most treasured possessions. So make the time for a photo session and you’ll never regret it.
