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.
