We all re familiar with family portrait sessions. But now, let’s talk about multi-generation portraits. When you become a mother, all you think of is your baby. As soon as the baby arrives, everyone will start taking pictures of the baby. That first smile, the first tooth, first steps, well, all the firsts and then a lot more.
With the technology available at hand, it’s very easy to forget how important professional portraits are. I’m sure you want that one picture that tugs you at your heartstrings. One portrait that you want to proudly display in your home and possibly pass on to generations down the road.
I always encourage people to have professional portraits done by a photographer. I can guide you in every aspect from planning to styling to installing the art in your home. It takes all the stress off your shoulders and your husband won’t be complaining about installing the wall art. It’s a win-win situation.
including grand parents
Apart from having your own family pictures done, I also recommend adding the grandparents. I love doing multi-generation portraits. No kidding, it makes me all emotional seeing all the love shared. The grandparents would definitely appreciate the invite and will hold these memories dearly forever. Gift them a keepsake album or cute little accordions to keep in their purse. They could revisit those precious memories whenever they feel like it.
We all know that most men don’t want to be photographed. So I recommend getting all the girls in first for the session, pose and snuggle and at the end of the session we will bring in the men (grandpa/dad/son) for the last 10-15 minutes. I’m sure they will appreciate not being held up at the studio when they’d rather be chilling at home watching TV.
