Why hire a family photographer?

this time with your kids is so important

There are so many advantages to hiring a professional family photographer, rather than trying to take them yourself or asking your friend to snap a few photos. Someone who has been photographing families for years will be able to provide truly beautiful photographs, a stellar experience, and help with so many of those small details that you might not even think of! It helps to alleviate the stress you may feel and gives you the opportunity to be completely immersed in the moment.

When you hire a photographer...

They understand how to use a camera properly.

A professional photographer will know how to maximize the settings in their camera to create amazing results. Your friend might have a professional camera but they may not know how to expertly use it. Putting it on auto mode is not going to produce the same results as shooting in manual mode.

A professional family photographer knows how to beautifully edit your images. Great photography isn't just about the photoshoot itself, it's also largely about the editing. The way that photographers edit their photos will make a very big difference in the final product. No editing at all will leave you with flat photos that just don't seem very dynamic.

A trained photographer knows how to get real emotion and genuine smiles out of your family

If your photographer is passionate about what they do, then they know how to evoke emotion and make the experience fun for everyone. Sometimes it's through games, other times they might give you room to just be together and do your own thing while your photographer documents all the little details of your family's interactions. Someone who isn't a professional will probably just tell you to "smile" and "say cheese," and no one looks genuine when told that.


Having someone help you with all of the preparation and planning that goes into a professional photo session helps relieve a lot of the stress that comes with booking family photos. They will help to document your family and hopefully make it a fun and low stress experience for everyone!
