Welcome to my blog. On this page you will find articles I personally write about the photography industry and my work. You will also see blogs showing the photos from many of my photo sessions.
Yes that’s right, family photos. You know those pictures that you keep saying you need to take but just somehow don’t seem to get around to doing?
Lots of families talk about getting professional photos taken, but I suspect few actually do it. I’m not sure why they don’t. Maybe they don’t want to spend the money or the time. Maybe they think they can get whatever photos they need of their family with their camera phone.
Here are some reasons why you should schedule your family photo session, and why fall is the best time to do it. Lori Black Photography is now scheduling family sessions.
Great family photos are more than just pictures of the family members standing in a row. They show family interaction. The family is grouped together in a designated way. They are interacting through touch. A great family photo will show true family love. A family will look back on these photos and have distinct memories of getting them taken. They will remember what the children looked like. It’s doubtful you will get any of this with a cell phone photo.
A family photo session will help children feel closer to their parents and help them understand the importance of family unity. A family who feels it is important to get a family portrait reflects the importance of the family, and the kids will notice that.
Document your family before everyone scatters
I have often been asked to take photos when an entire family is in town. So often grown children move away and the family has missed the opportunity. Many times when they are together again, they realize this is the time to do the photo session that they had long put off.
Everyone loves fall color, and fall color results in gorgeous photos. Would you rather look at a family photo with green foliage behind them or multi-colored foliage. Fall photos will be striking and will look great as a canvas print on the wall.
It’s time to book your fall family session.
