Preparing for your family photo shoot

“I just want photos of the kids, not me!”

If I had a pound for every time I heard that old chestnut, I’d be lying on a beach in Thailand right now!

YOU NEED PHOTOS OF YOUR FAMILY THAT INCLUDE YOU

I understand that your kids are the cutest and you want all the attention on them. But you are part of the family- a very important part, I’ll add- and deserve to be in photos!  Do you find that you are always taking the photos? That your other half has lots of great photos with the kids, but you don’t? Please do yourself and your family a favour and get in the photos!

EMBRACE THE PERFECTLY IMPERFECT

What’s holding you back from getting into family photos? What are you waiting for?

Do you want your hair and make-up done perfectly?  (Who cares?)

Do you want to wait until you’ve lost that bit of extra weight?  (Who cares?)

Are you scared your kids won’t behave “properly” in photos?  (Who cares?)

NEWSFLASH-It doesn’t have to be perfect, as few things in life rarely are. But just being together as a family, that’s the thing that you will remember! Life is short, let’s just enjoy it!

YOUR KIDS WILL THANK YOU

Allison Slater Tate wrote about this topic in her post, The Mom Stays In The PictureRead her amazing words:

“I’m everywhere in their young lives, and yet I have very few pictures of me with them. Someday I won’t be here — and I don’t know if that someday is tomorrow or thirty or forty or fifty years from now — but I want them to have pictures of me. I want them to see the way I looked at them, see how much I loved them. I am not perfect to look at and I am not perfect to love, but I am perfectly their mother.”

Wow!

How amazing it will be to look back and remember your family at that moment in time, perfectly imperfect.

So hand your hubby the phone or book in for a family photography Northern Ireland session with me! You’ll thank me for it, I promise!

Check out a lovely family here for some inspiration!
