Top 4 reasons from a Houston Family Photographer.
How many photos do you take of your baby? On a daily basis?
With our phones always close by, the number of images you take, of your kiddos, each day is high. This fact can give us the idea of skipping a professional family session. But think about it this way, when was the last time you edited, printed and framed a family photo from your phone?
It is different with professional family photos, they get printed, hung and shared with loved one. They are treasured and stay for generations to foster your legacy. They don’t just stay as a file on your phone.
#1 Boost your kids confidence
It has been proven by psychologists that it is healthy for your children to physically see your family as a unit. To see themselves represented as a valued member of that unit by displaying images of your family can boost your child’s confidence. A recent study has shown that photography in the home reportedly makes children feel valued and gives them a rich understanding of where they come from.
“For children in particular, looking at photographs is part of the socializing process; learning who you are and where you fit into the family. By displaying photographs of our children at different stages of their lives, we are making a very public statement that we are proud of them”. Therefor images help us connect to those who came before, and will do the same for your family in the future. This way our kids connect to their own story.
“Displaying photos prominently in the home sends the message that our family and those in it are important to one another, and we honor the memories we have experienced,“ says Cathy Lander-Goldberg. She is a licensed clinical social worker and a professional photographer in St. Louis, Missouri and the director of Photo Explorations, which offers workshops to girls and women using portrait and journaling for self-reflection.
#2 Create art for your home
Looking for something to decorate your home? How about beautiful images of your family. This is art that you won’t get bored of.
I am sure your phone is filled with pictures of your baby. But those just might not be wall-worthy, and a selfie is the only way you can appear in those. A professional photo session will ensure that everyone is in the frame, and that the image is worthy of your fireplace mantel.
#3 Start a tradition
Wether it was part of your growing up or not, this can be a great tradition for your family. You can pass it on for generations. Most importantly you won’t only be passing on a tradition but also a set of beautiful images, for your loved ones to look back and remember these times.
#4 Keeps the memories live
It is not just the photograph you’ll have, it is the whole experience. Once you look back at that image, hanging on your wall, it will remind you of a happy time spend with your family.
