It’s been over a year since the pandemic and subsequent lockdowns first began. If you’re like everyone else, you’ve been desperately missing your loved ones and can’t wait to be able to hug them again. Now that the vaccines are rolling out and it’s getting safer to gather again, it's a great time to invest in quality portrait photography and take as many photos together as you can. These family photography sessions are essential, especially given the times we’re in now!
The whole point of family photography is to document the growth and milestones of your life. It’s a fantastic idea to hold a baby photoshoot with your newborns and then compare them to your kids’ photoshoot years later. Even your children will get excited to see their own changes over the years and have memories of important events. It’s even become a trend to recreate family pictures every few years to document how much people grew.
Family pictures aren’t just for documenting that age or year--it’s also for creating new memories. You get dressed up, visit a picturesque location, and have fun playing together for a few hours. It’s a beautiful way to hang out and enjoy each other’s company. These photoshoots can allow you to finally see members of your family after spending a long time apart.
No One Gets Left Out
Taking constant pictures is fantastic for capturing everyday experiences and candid moments. However, whoever is holding the camera is always missing from these photos. Although selfies can be fun, sometimes you want a professional photographer to take your pictures instead. You never want to look back on your life and realize you’re in hardly any pictures because you were too busy taking them.
It’s For Your Future Generations
Photography allows us to capture and memorialize history. Don’t you love looking through your grandparents’ photo albums to see what their lives were like back when they were your age? When you take family portraits, you preserve these memories so that your future children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren can see them and get a glimpse of your younger self.
If the past year has taught us anything, you never know what will happen in life. Having pictures in your house is an important way to relive your memories and honor your family members. It’s an emotional connection that you get to keep for the rest of your live and reminisce over whenever you miss them. Springtime is one of my favorite seasons for photography sessions in Rhode Island, so take full advantage of it by getting your loved ones together for a fun photoshoot! I’m passionate about creating and documenting these important moments, so I look forward to memorializing your family's love and happiness!
