The Importance of Multi-Generational Family Photoshoots
I just love this family! I have known these wonderful friends for over 15 years- hard to believe! I have so enjoyed seeing all the growth and additions to their family over that time. I feel like I can blink and I'll be right back in 7th grade meeting Julia for the first time, not even knowing we would be friends for the rest of the rest! Now she is married, and has a sweet little boy and a little girl on the way! It has been so amazing to see her family grow over the years and watch her parents and brother take on their new role as grandparents and uncle.
When I think about the importance of having multi-generational family photoshoots, I think back to a beautiful, framed family photo hanging in my Grandparent's house. Now this beautiful, large photo was hung above the piano for as long as I can remember. But guess what, I barely made that family photo- I was an infant when it was taken! So that means my little sister wasn't even born when the photo was taken... and it never got updated (LOL!) It's a family joke now, that for all these years we never got professional photos done again and relied on our own digital cameras and iPhones, handing them off to anyone around to get a shot of all of us when we were together. While I love my family and think they have done a lot of things right, this is one thing we can definitely improve in ;)
Grandparents, adult children, grandchildren, and cousins have some of the most special relationships that exist! There is so much love and laughter over inside jokes and shared family traits. The silly family stories that mount over the years are endless. To be able to capture your family in each stage, with all of your family members, is so important! Also, having fun while capturing these family sessions is a major perk in itself!
How long has it been since your last family photos?
If you're looking around your home right now, glancing at old family photos, thinking to yourself, "Why in the world has it been 10 years since we had a family photoshoot?"... take this as your sign to book a multi-generational family session in 2022. There is no time like the present and I would be honored to capture your family this year!
