Even though I don’t do family sessions as often these days (because I mostly do newborn) I actually love when families book a session. The number of times I have read stories about people regretting not having family photos done and regretting it for one reason or another is so sad to me. I know with our phones we can take selfies and even if you just set your camera on a timer that is great, but you won’t be able to get the photos you want because as the photographer you are running to and from the camera and trying to make sure the kids aren’t picking their nose or pulling each others hair! (although I think those are great shots too!) So if you have never had a family portrait make sure you do. Family and sibling photos are always included in all my newborn sessions as well and I always urge people to have at least one family photo- it’s something you will never regret and your kids certainly will appreciate.
