Why to Book Your Family Session Early
It’s almost that time of year again: family photos! Not only are the holidays the perfect time to update your family’s portraits, they’re also the best time seasonally, and practically. It’s often overwhelming to book a shoot, especially if you have little ones. Immediately, you wonder what to wear, if it will work around nap times and meals, and how to wrangle a few little ones in front of a camera. I really want to encourage you today to go ahead and book, even if you’re hesitant. You will never regret capturing your family in this season of life.
-Booking early eliminates one more thing off your to-do list. If you’re a busy mom or dad, you know that your schedule doesn’t have much wiggle room in it. If you’re preparing for a thanksgiving and Christmas filled with family members visiting or the hustle and bustle of school programs and shopping, now is the time to take one thing off your plate. You can have your images done, printed, and sent out long before the holidays arrive.
-Booking early gives you optimal weather and locations: Before the weather turns really chilly, the fall season is the best time to do family photos. You get the pretty scenery of leaves and trees, without the chill that comes with the months closer to Christmas. It also gives you more wardrobe options, instead of bulky parkas and scarves, and allows you to bring little ones out and about in pretty spaces, rather than trudging around in the rain! The fall season is particularly beautiful here in Oregon.
-Booking our fall family sessions is also easier on the budget: Rather than paying for photos during an already expensive time of the year, doing them in the fall is a great way to spread out the expenses of new outfits, shoes, and portraits before you begin any holiday spending. In fact, if you plan ahead to do family photos in the same month each year, it will enable you to budget for it early on, and also to remember to book them!
