Why you should get your family photos taken this year

Family photos come in all sorts of iterations, and as a Randolph family photographer, I've seen them all.  Parents with children.  Just the kids.  Older siblings together.  A single person or a couple or  Even a group of close friends.  Family has so many definitions, and so family photos can be so many different things.  As a child, and even now, one of my favorite things to do was peruse through my family's photo albums and marvel at old photos of my parents, as well as newer photos of my own immediate family.

The Fall is slowly approaching and  If you haven't had your family photos or scheduled your family session yet I would highly recommend you do so today dont let this year be another one that goes by chose without documenting your growing family.  Whether it be for the first time or the fifth time; whether it's a traditional family or something a little different, family photos are so important.  I've got two reasons why now is the time for family photos (and I'd love to be the one to take them).  So to find out why you should have your family's photos taken this year, read on.

1.  For the present

 

Maybe you're a new family who just had a baby.  Maybe you've got a few growing kids, or you have one about to go to college or maybe even an aging parent.  The bottom line is you want to remember the now.  You want to remember this moment.  Time passes fast.  They're only this little once.  Each moment happens only once.  You want to remember this now, this present, and bring it with you to the future.  

2.  For the future

I am very lucky to come from a family where photos are plentiful.  In my parents' home, there is a photo of my grandfather this is the only way I remember my grandfather since he passed away when I was about 2 years and I dont have much memories of him other than though the photographs.  I spend so much time looking at photos of my parents as children; of my own immediate family through the years.  It all gave me a sense of belonging and a connection to my past.  

There are lots of moms (and dads, too, but honestly, more moms) who say they wish they were in photos with their children, or they wish there were more photos of them, period, so their children would have some to look at now, and in the future.  The future is uncertain.  I cannot tell you how much those children would appreciate if their moms and dads and aunts and uncles and grandparents got in a photo.  The future value of photos like that is immeasurable.  Believe me.  Your future family will thank you over and over for them.

Family Portrait Photography is so important in recording various stages through your families life.  In current  day While most parents especially mothers tend to be the ones recording the memories for their children its important to make time to be in the frame to make sure you exist in your family memories. 

A Portrait Session with Seraphine Photography is an experience your family will remember and treasure for years to come and will be passed down generations you too will be remembered.  Call me today make sure you too are in the frame. We will start by talking on the phone then planning to meet so we can design and plan not only your family memories but also discuss how to present and display your experience.

Family Portrait Session at Regatta Point Park Worcester MA

The mom of this awesome family initially wanted the session on their yard however when you have teenage girls their opinion matters and they had envisioned something different. After brainstorming we settled for a beautiful gem. I loved dreaming with her and building on her vision.  The combination of 2 young women their mom boats and the beautiful historic bridge at Regatta Point Park and Lake Quinsigamond Worcester provides made for a pretty awesome session!

After some discussion of location we settled on Regatta Point Community Sailing.  This Community was Founded in 1960 with one simple goal- to bring "Boating for All" to greater Worcester.  I love the character of the building both from the beach as well as once you step inside.

I love the wardrobe that Dorothy picked out for her family.  It’s well-coordinated with just the right amount of neutrals mixed with pops of color.  Nicely done!

We of course wrapped up the session with the girls enjoying each others company. I love candid's and this type of session definitely offers plenty of opportunity to capture much spontaneous sweetness.

Golden Hour Spring Family Portraits at Eleanor Bradley Estate in Canton MA

It was such a beautiful late Spring day for this family Session. The family had a major Milestone Coming up with their daughter who is also the oldest in the family was setting to graduate from high school. The Tulips were in full bloom at the Bradley Estate Gardens and gorgeous as ever. While our initial planned session date was a washout as it can happen in the Spring we were all really happy with our rain date because it turned out to be a crispy day but the sunset was absolutely gorgeous. 

The family was looking absolutely gorgeous and they enjoyed sharing one on one time together there was chest bumping and the kids enjoyed taking a stroll while the parents had their couples photos done. The teens loved the location so much that they wanted to get most of their portraits framed by the flowering shrubs. 

After our initial consultation and portrait planning session the family was really excited and everyone was involved in the planning process. 

The best part of the entire experience was when we got together for the reveal party when the family was was able to view their images and select their final art and product. Going through their gallery together and selecting the photographs that best represent their individual personalities and the families personality was such a great joy both for the family and so fulfilling for me as an artist to see the final product on the wall. Thank you for entrusting me to document this beautiful and important milestone in your family. It’s was such a pleasure to spend the amazing time we did together through the process and glad you loved your experience. 

Spring Family Portraits at Powers Farm Randolph MA

When I met Jaime and Christina for a consultation session to plan their Spring Family Portraits. It was exciting to learn that they are both heavily involved with the Randolph Holbrook Pop Warner team. Both their daughters have been members of the team and one is still an active member. What an amazing role to have I bet it allows you some extra family time and as the team challenges arise you tackle them as a family. I highly commend both of them for volunteering their time and energy to this great cause. 

I had such a great time working with you on planning your experience for the session and capturing your family memories. Thank you for inviting me to document part of your family's legacy. I hope you enjoyed yourselves during your experience with me as much as I enjoyed myself with the whole process and I hope you are also enjoying your wall art. 

Here are some of my favorite images from the session. 

Ice Castles Lincoln NH Winter 2018

We were really excited to visit the Ice Castles in NH. We picked February Vacation to go and we are glad that we made it there. The temperature's were in the 50's which resulted in the ice melting while we were there nonetheless we were glad it wasn't biting cold.  Here are a few of the images from our visit. In the future we'll probably plan to go later in the day to get the full effect of the surrounding. 

We are glad to have brought our winter gear and while we had it in the car we actually had considered leaving it but glad we geared up for it. 

Helpful tips. Bring your winter full winter gear and sleds. 

Amelia's Sitter Session

It was a pleasure to have this adorable girl in the studio again. She has enough of a personality to warm up a room and trust me she knows how to work a room. What a fun session and she was a trooper considering that she is teething. Here are some of my favorites from the session. 

Mwangi family birthday and Portrait Session

This duo birthday at the Altitude Trampoline Park was a lot of fun to document. There was a lot of fun to be had and the children truly enjoyed themselves. Following the Birthday Party we had a family session scheduled and while we had sub zero temperatures as expected of February. Everyone enjoyed being outside. 

Portrait Session for Mother and her Daughters

This mama needed to get some headshots to use on her upcoming coaching class, to top it off her birthday and her daughters birthday were in the same month so in celebration of turning another year for both her nd her daughter we figured we get some updated portraits of her and her daughters in studio. Birthdays are a great time to update your family portraits but have portraits of you and your children adds to the fun.

 

Look Back at 2017

The year 2017 was an interesting year for me, with the highlights being launching a business doing something I absolutely love and my health taking a turn for the better. I had put the camera down years before but as soon as I picked it back up last November I knew there was no turning back. Overall, it was a really tough year balancing family and business life but I wouldn't trade it for anything. As 2017 comes to an end all I can think of is how blessed I am to have been able to document your memories and family legacy you. 

Putting this collage together and looking at all of the beautiful faces I am reminded of how much joy this job brings me. Being there to capture these valuable moments, hearing their stories and sometimes even shedding a tear with them is so special. I like to sit in these moments of joy and reflect on what truly matters and for me that means spending time with my loved ones, sharing a meal with friends and family or just connecting with the human race.

My wish for you in the New Year is to find those moments of pure bliss and savor them, go after them, capture them in your heart, mind or even on camera. Its sometimes hard to believe how lucky I am that I can make a living off a passion. 

Thank you to all of you who took the leap of faith in me and cheers to a fresh new start in 2018!!!
