I LOVE family photo shoots. I don't think people do them enough. Time passes quickly, and if friends, family, or pets are at all important to you, then why wouldn't you want to document that. Especially if you have a family, and your children are young.
Kids grow up fast! I would say plan for a photoshoot 2x a year the first year, then once a year up until 4 or 5 years old, and then maybe every 1-3 years up until mid teens or they graduate from high school.
Leslie and McLane shared celebrated 9 months with their precious Avery with a family photoshoot. I brought a balloon, which Avery loved, and we went into the river and played in the water. Was able to catch a few tender, candid moments when Avery was getting her hair brushed and having a new outfit put on. I love being able to show those real family moments, since that's what they're going to look back on and remember with love. And of course, she got to keep the balloon!
When was the last time you had a family photoshoot to document your loved ones?
