Can you remember the last time you had a family portrait taken- where you are all together in the same photograph? It's surprisingly a very rare occasion, as you either have to ask a stranger to do it for you, or someone is left out.
2020 has been a weird struggle for all of us. We will all be able to look back at this year and recite so many things about it- the masks, the social distancing, the tiger king phase, the memes, and so much more. It has been really tough on so many of us. But, although this year has pushed us apart from strangers, it has brought our loved ones closer to us. Before we go back to 'normal', why not capture fond memories with a photo shoot?
Here are 5 reasons why you need to book a family photo shoot.
REASON NUMBER 1: THE VALUE OF THE PHOTO INCREASES WITH TIME
How do you feel when you look at an old picture of your own mum or dad, or even of a long-gone relative you didn't get to meet? It feels as if you are looking into a window of the past, that would have otherwise been forgotten. Chances are you probably want to keep that photo safe as the value of that picture is priceless.
A value of a portrait goes up and up as time goes on. A photograph that was taken now, in two, ten, or even thirty years time, is priceless. People grow up. We age. We live and we forget. Photographs capture that shadow in time that would have otherwise been forgotten.
REASON NUMBER 2: BEFORE THE GROW UP
If you're like us, you've scrolled through your phone gallery back a few months and then gasped at how much your kids have changed! "How did they get so big,?" Look at how their hair was styled!" "Oh, do you remember that outfit?" Don't let time take your kids away from you- capture them beautifully in portraits. Portraits are a visual love letter to your children. When they are older and when they see these photos, they will know that they were loved, that they were seen, and that they belonged within the family.
REASON NUMBER 3: THEY KEEP MEMORIES ALIVE
People age and memories fade. But photos can capture a person's personality and encapsulate it forever. Dementia and Alzheimer's are becoming more common, and so for elderly people, it is so important for them to be able to look back on happy, beautiful memories.
REASON NUMBER 4: SPEND QUALITY TIME TOGETHER
Life has been busy, passing us by, even in lockdown. It's hard to hit pause on Netflix or put your phone down. These sessions allow you to get together, make each other laugh together, hug each other and spend some much-needed quality time together
REASON NUMBER 5: THEY ARE PERSONAL
No other family is like your own, and no two portraits are the same. They are unique to you. They will capture unique moments. This is a gift of a lifetime.
