You’ve had your family photo session(s). You have an assortment of gorgeous framed prints….and they are leaning against a wall waiting for a spot to call home. Sound familiar?
For some, the decision on where and how to display their family photos can be overwhelming. If this is you, take a deep breath and understand that there are no ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ ways. Whatever makes you smile, whatever tells your ‘story’, whatever works for you is the right way.
Many of the families I photograph are repeat clients. I typically photograph them every year or every other year depending on schedules and geography. In my opinion, these sessions create the perfect ‘family wall’. You can start with just a few and add on each year which results in a fabulous photographic history of your family’s growth.
I recently received an email from a client whose family I’ve photographed several times over the years. To say this family ‘gets me’ is an understatement. In fact, one of the images from one of our sessions together is on the home page of my website and is what I would consider a ‘signature’ image of mine. It defines exactly the type of family photography I love.
As you can see, these clients let their children be themselves during the sessions and let me do what I do best (capture their personalities and relationships and document that particular stage in their lives). There is never any demands to “smile” or “say cheese”, etc… The result? Two exquisite gallery walls (so far!) in their home telling the story of their children.
Here are a few from our most recent session:
This mom has a wonderful plan for the future of these photos…
“So glad we have invested in your photos through the years – when my kids get married for a wedding gift, I will give them each an album of all your pictures. Won’t that be awesome?”
Yes…Yes it WILL be awesome! Can’t wait for our next photo session!
