Multi-family portrait sessions are truly amazing because you get to capture the whole family in a professional image to pass down through the generations. Hopefully, you read our other article with tips on planning a multi-family portrait session here. Today, we want to share more about when it’s the right time to take your big family portrait. 

The Best Time to Take a Multi-Generational Photo

When a client reaches out about a multi-generation portrait session, the first question they ask is when to schedule the session. Of course, the answer depends on your family and own timeline, but here are some considerations. 


First and foremost, don’t put off scheduling this type of session. Once you have a multi-family portrait session in mind, you may find that life gets in the way of scheduling. Maybe you think you should wait a few years until mom and dad’s big anniversary or until some of the younger children have grown up more.



Sadly, we sometimes hear clients who want to wait until they feel ready for a professional portrait. They’re either worried about losing some weight or until they look a certain way. We want to assure you that you look perfect just how you are right now! If any clients share any personal appearance concerns, we can implement a few tricks up our sleeves to make sure that you love your photos with wardrobe guidance and PhotoShop magic. 


Long story short, the best time to schedule your multi-family portrait is as soon as possible! Life is precious, and we truly don’t know what’s ahead. We can’t see the future, but we can enjoy the now. Take the family portrait now, and, worst-case scenario, you schedule another one in a few years! How many families have multiple generations in a portrait to display in their homes? You could end up with more than one! How incredible is that?
