What stops you from booking a photographer for your family photos?

Recently I asked this question on social media and the response may surprise you!

Many people would love to have professional photos of their families…

But for some reason they just never book in.

I have always been curious about this. Often wondering what stops people from booking in a photographer and getting their family photos done. 

So, I asked the question on my social media stories, and the the top reasons were: 

~ Worried about the kids (or hubby) behaving 

~ Don’t have the time 

~ Worried about how they might look in the photos

Worrying about how they may look in the photos was THE most common answer!

These are all valid reasons.  However the one thing I have heard many times over the years is “I wish I had more family photos” and I have never heard anyone say, “We have too many family photos”!  I look at my family photos as the story of our lives, and in particular my children’s lives.  These are their memories to look back on, and hopefully pass on to the next generation.

Here are some simple tips I can give you to help you make that professional family photography session and how to alleviate the stress of what will happen and how you look. 

Don’t worry about how anyone is going to behave or cooperate

We can plan our session around this!  We play games and try to make it as fun for everyone as possible.

“Make” the time to have the photos done

We never get the time to do things, we must make the time.  If photos are important to you, make the time and just book them in!  I booked the last family session for my family 9 months out from our session date, and it was so worth the wait!

Noone else is worried about how you look

And finally, your kids won’t be worried about how you look in the photos, all they see is their Mum, and the way she loves them … and they will appreciate these photos the most, especially in years to come!
