Family portraits are a beautiful way to document your growing family, yet many families put these off. They push off taking family portraits until next year arrives, and it’s time to think about it again. Today, we want to discuss the biggest objections to family portraits and how to overcome them. Not only that, but we share more reasons why you shouldn’t put off family portraits any longer!

Three Biggest Objections to Family Portraits

Time – Planning and executing a family session is a lot of work for mom! Mom has to find a photographer, find a date that works for the whole family, choose a location, choose outfits and get everyone to the session. Afterward, mom has to decide how to use to images from the session. This could add up to hours of work. 

This is why it’s so important to find a family portrait studio that handles all of this for you. Once you book with your photographer and find a date that works, we take the rest from there. 

Investment – Family portraits are an investment to consider. You’ll want to purchase professional portrait artwork to display in your home or office after the session and any digital files. These are treasures that your family will enjoy for generations to come.

Waiting (braces to come off, weight loss, etc.) – So many families want to wait for the “perfect time” after their child’s braces come off, or their child’s front teeth grow back, etc. Maybe mom is hoping to lose a few pounds before taking family photos. 

The truth is that your family is perfect how they are right now. Yes, maybe your child has braces or is missing teeth, but that’s part of their personality right now. You’ll love looking back on this sweet season with your family. Mom, you are perfect now. Don’t put off family photos any longer. Your kids will look back on these photos with joy because they’re with their favorite person – you.

There are so many reasons why families want to wait, but the truth is that you shouldn’t wait any longer!
