The Importance of Annual Professional Family Photography

Why Invest in Professional Photography Every Year for your Family?

Remember that pouty look your oldest used to give you when she didn’t get her way?

Today, it’s the “my brother is so annoying” look and next year it will be the “I’m too cool for this” look.

Change is a constant in parenthood, sometimes for the better and sometimes it breaks your heart to see those chubby cheeks go. I have had the distinct pleasure of photographing some of my favorite New Orleans families for years. I love seeing how babbling babies turn into goofy toddlers and then into inquisitive kids. Looking back and sharing photos as families grow and evolve is a delight.

You will never regret documenting your children, but just in case you need a little more incentive, here are some reasons why it’s an investment that gets more valuable each year.

Create Memories

Getting together for a wonderful time at City Park or the French Quarter creates a family memory. Add in a little Dad chasing and Mom cuddles, and your kids are having a fun time being in the moment. My job is to make that moment last a lifetime.  Professional portraits celebrate who your family is today.  So often photos hearten us both emotionally and spiritually while reaffirming family bonds. Families grow and change for reasons such as marriage, birth, loved ones passing away, and others moving far away. Yearly photos capture these changes, creating a timeline of milestone events.


You’re Not Just Taking Them for Yourself, But for Future Generations

During the holidays, the old photo albums come out and memories flood the room as relatives recount stories from their younger years. While at the time, you might not care about photos of you, your grandchildren and great grandchildren will be overjoyed that they have pictures of you to remember you by.


Document Growth

Your children are changing fast. They can change so much in just a few months. Documenting your family every year or even every few years can help show just how much you all are changing. Whether you’re adding new family members, loosing teeth, getting braces and so much more, this can be captured in a beautiful professional way.

Wall Art Featuring Those you Love Most

Celebrating your family dynamic on your walls can make those not-so-easy parenting days a little bit easier. Looking at a gorgeous portrait of you all laughing in each other’s arms is heartwarming.  And studies have shown that children who grow up in a home filled with portraits of themselves and their family grow up more confident and with a bigger sense of security. There is nothing more valuable then professional fine-art portraits of your family.
