One of the most treasured keepsakes is Family Portraits. Children grow up way too fast! Remember taking tons of pictures when your children were babies? What about now? When was the last time you had a beautiful portrait of your entire family? If your answer is more than 4 years ago, it’s been too long! Today’s trends capture families in a natural outdoor environment. Look on Facebook, Analog Photo Day, Pinterest, or in magazines. Natural lifestyle portraits are what’s in style.
How to prepare for you family portraits
Lots of forethought goes into your photo session. Consider what your family likes to do together and make that a part of the experience. Do your children play sports, play an instrument, or take dance lessons? All of things help to personalize a shoot. You want to be able to look back at your portrait twenty years from now and say, “This perfectly captures what our family is all about.” Moms, think about how to dress the entire family. Coordinate outfits so it looks cohesive but not too forced. Think of what location best portrays your family’s interest. Is it an area park, your own home, or someplace you like to go? Whatever your answer is, Family Portraits are treasured for a lifetime!
