You have created a bond with all of the special people in your life. Therefore, you should capture it! That’s why, here at Sarah Keenan Creative, as a Raleigh family photographer, I have gathered some reasons as to why you should have your own annual family portraits captured. Let’s continue reading to discover what these reasons are, shall we?

  • Pause Time. Each year, your family grows, which is certainly bittersweet. However, through photography, you can pause time! Each year, you can capture your family, as way to preserve the growth and milestones that you will all experience. This is a wonderful way to pause time and embrace the current stage within your life!
  • A Day of Fun. Life is busy! Work, school, kids, cooking, cleaning; you are most likely quite occupied each and every day. If you take a moment to step back and enjoy a day out with your family, you can relax while showcasing your natural bond with your family through photography! This will allow you to really embrace the love that you have for one another, and appreciate your time spent together.
  • Different Uses. There will be many occasions throughout the year that you will likely be making announcements for. You can use your family portraits for your announcements! For example, a lovely family portrait would be the perfect backdrop for your Christmas cards! Or, you can create canvasses or framed portraits of your family photos, which would pose as the perfect gifts for friends and family members. There are many ways in which you can utilize your lovely family portraits!

There are so many benefits to having your family portraits captured annually! These are just a few that you will want to keep in mind.
