When should I book family photographs is a common question. When is a good time of year? How old should my children be? Should I wait until they’re walking? Should I wait until I lose some weight? Should I wait until I have some money put aside? Should I wait until they’re a bit older? Should I wait until I get my hair coloured? Should I wait until I get a chance to go clothes shopping?
The honest answer as to when you should book family photography is an easy one. The time is now. So often do I hear that people want to wait until (insert variety of reasons).
- Until we get done having an extension because we won’t know where to put the photographs.
- Until we’re back from holiday and have caught some sun (really bad idea as not everyone tans at the same rate as the rest of the family).
- Until I (he/we) lose some weight. (I bet you have clothes right now for when you lose a stone, and you’ve had them at least 3 years).
- Until their new teeth come in.
- Until they’re walking etc.
The list goes on and on. When should I book family photographs? Now, the time is now. Life keeps moving forward and if social media teaches us anything is that On This Day comes around faster and faster. All other objections are really about being overwhelmed at the prospects of how to go about it.
When should I book family photographs?
If you’re wondering about seasons, I’ve photographed families in every season. There are always lovely locations and light to be had. Winter lighting is actually one of my favourites. There is something so super sumptuous about winter light. Also it’s great for little ones when bedtime does not coincide with the golden hour.
Spring offers the rebirth of life in our world. Daffodils, bluebells, azeleas and cow parsley are all trumpets that the days are in fact longer. These flowers can give a beautiful backdrop and add amazing colour to your family photography.
Autumn is a grand time for family photography. The crisp air and crunch leaves lead to enthusiastic smiles and rosy cheeks.
