4 Reasons to Book Family Photos This Summer
It's always a great time to book family photos and while many families tend to wait till the fall to schedule a photo session, there are several reasons why you should consider booking your session during the summer. Here are some reasons you should save yourself some sanity this fall and go ahead and schedule your family photos this summer.
School is out: Summer is the perfect time to capture your family's unique personality without worrying about your kids' bedtime. With longer days and warmer weather, you can schedule your session at a time that works best for your family. This means no cranky kids or rushed photoshoots.
There's a variety of fun activities: You can incorporate some fun family activities into your photoshoot. Whether it's a picnic at the park, a visit to the zoo, or simply enjoying ice cream together, these activities can help capture the essence of your family and the things you enjoy doing together. I can help you plan some fun activities to do with your family during your session.
You're likely to be less busy: Summer tends to be a less busy time of year for many families, giving you more flexibility in scheduling your photoshoot. When the school-year starts this fall and all the extracurricular activities pile up, your fall schedule will quickly fill up and it may be hard to make family photos a priority. Plus, everyone else will be trying to schedule fall photos, so unless you book a session way in advance, your favorite photographer's calendar may already be full, leaving you feeling stressed trying to hurry and book a photographer.
Less chance of rescheduling: If you live in Texas, you know how the weather can be... Summer is known for it's warmer weather, which means you won't have to worry about rescheduling your session due to rain or other weather conditions. This can give you peace of mind leading up to your session. I know Texas can get extremely hot, so if the sun is not for you, you can book a studio session or my favorite type of session- in your own home.
Your family photos should capture who you are as a family and the things you enjoy doing together. Summer offers so many opportunities to do just that, from in-home activities like baking and playing board games to outdoor adventures like swimming and visiting local attractions. Plus, the vibrant colors of summer can make for some truly stunning photographs.
So don't wait until the fall to book your family photos. Take advantage of the summer months and all they have to offer and create some lasting memories that you and your family will treasure for years to come.
