Portrait session timing that is best for YOU!?! How do you know when you should book your session? Now, of course, as a photographer anytime is the RIGHT time, but seriously, it is an investment and a lot of time is spent planning and prepping for your family session. Many of my clients come to me year after year, but others plan for one special session and that is what I am addressing here in this blog post.
You are thinking it is TIME for family portraits, your loving the stage that your family is at and would like to capture it in formal portraits that will last for generations. How do you plan when to have your family portraits? Great question. First to consider: what style of dress symbolizes your daily the most? Layers and deep tones? Or the lightness of pastels, breezy fabrics and sandals. Many feel better in one particular season vs, the other. If this is YOU, have the season guide you. Want ideas for such inspiration?

Should you base it around a special occasion or milestone? Baby’s first steps, special relatives in town or maybe just after your sweet teen has their braces put on or taken off….there are so many reasons that might lend themselves for capturing your family. There doesn’t need to be a BIG reason, often a small reason can be enough.
And number THREE? DO NOT wait for everything to be PERFECT on timing? Why? Because, when is anything absolutely perfect, nor why should we expect it to be. The beauty in the chaos, the love is alive and magic between each of you right now….let’s capture it. <3 Now wait, did I just negate the first two tips? Not at all, sometimes things can be planned and timed optimally, but other times we can panic and freeze when facing a big decision.
