6 Reasons To Have Professional Family Photos Taken In The New Year
Dec 31, 2020 | By: A Charmed Life Photography
The New Year is just around the corner. After a difficult 2020, you may be searching for a resolution to start 2021 off on a high note. If it has been a year or more since you gathered the family together for professional photographs, now is the time! Nothing warms the heart or brightens the home like the smiling faces of those you love most.
Here are six reasons to prioritize family portraits this year:
1. Create new memories you will cherish forever.
Planning a family portrait session is about more than just getting everyone in the same place at the same time. It is a chance to dress up and share a special meal together; an opportunity for siblings, cousins, and grandchildren to play and get to know each other better; and an excuse to snuggle close with that special someone.
2. Kids grow and change so fast.
Children grow up in the blink of an eye. Investing in new photographs each year allows you to capture them as they are now. And when they are adults they will love looking back on all the important stages of their youth
3. Life gets in the way.
It is so easy to let months, even years go by without gathering the family together. The current coronavirus pandemic is a reminder of just how important it is to prioritize the ones you love. Work and responsibilities will always be there, but your extended family members may not. Take advantage of the time you have together so you won't regret it later.
4. There are so many creative options.
In the old days family portrait sessions consisted of a stuffy studio with sweltering lights and fake-looking backdrops. Nowadays, your photos are only as limited as your imagination! Climb a tree, dip your toes in the ocean, dress up in matching outfits, or leap in the air - a professional photographer can help you create the perfect memory to suit your unique family.
5. Cell phone pics just can’t compare.
Technology has basically turned cell phones into digital cameras with calling features, but that doesn’t mean your selfies can compare to real, professional portraits. SnapChat filters simply cannot stand up to the years of posing, lighting, and editing experience photographers have under their belts. Hiring a professional is an investment worth making.
6. You are creating a generational legacy.
You aren’t the only one who will cherish your quality, professional photos. As your children and their children make their way into the future they will proudly display the memories you create today.
I love looking at the black-and-white, sepia, and hand-colored portraits of my grandparents and great grandparents. It is a link to a piece of my history I would never be able to experience otherwise. Professional photos are a gift you can give to your family now and for generations to come.
