Annual Family Portrait Sessions

One thing I love about being a Newborn and Family Photographer is returning clients. Not just because it means they valued their experience so much they wanted to return. But, because I get to be a little piece of another family’s ever-changing story. From surprise first child to planned second and so on, I get to help document those milestones. Annual Family Sessions are one of my favorite ways to do that. They’re the perfect way to continue to tell your family’s story after your family is complete.




I’ve been photographing the Turners for 5 years now – not including their engagement session in 2013 when I was just starting my photography. From when their son was born to now when he’s a big brother running around the studio tall and full of energy! These continuous sessions are a great way to stop relying on/hoping for a good school picture day! Because let’s be honest, your child’s personality rarely shines through in those photos. Plus, as cute as your child looks in their school uniform do you want that framed on your wall? And finally – you need to be in photos too!

Annual family portrait sessions are a great way to remember who your children were at four, five, and six years old. Because they do change that quickly! Bring their favorite toy to the session and you’ll forever be reminded of the tiny plastic toy you found in the dollar section that you’ll never be able to replace that became their favorite toy. You want these photos to remind you of the way your child loved being thrown up in the air because next year they won’t.

As your children grow, so does your family. Taking time every year to preserve how they were at that moment is important, and you’ll thank yourself for it in the long run. Every stage of life is precious no matter how crazy! Plus, getting your hair and makeup done and getting to feel like a model every year isn’t so bad right?
