Why Have Your Photos Taken?

Six reasons why it's so important to take the time to get your photos taken.


If there’s one certain thing in life, it’s that your to-do list is never ending. From the little stuff - like doing the laundry, mailing that package, and getting to that doctor’s appointment - to bigger commitments like planning a birthday party or going out of town for a wedding, it can all get exhausting.


Amid everything, though, we think that it’s so important to take some time once every year or so for yourself, and for your loved ones, to have your pictures taken. We admit we’re pretty partial to this idea, but here are six reasons WHY we think it’s a good idea. Let us know if you agree!

 
It Presses Pause on a Period of Time

You know how smelling a perfume or a certain food it brings you back to a moment in time? Looking at a picture can do the same thing. Not just in terms of the moment itself, but in terms of that period of your life.


You’ll Love Looking Back on the Images Later

Having images that document you and your family over time is indescribably meaningful. You, your kids, your kids’ kids, and so forth will love being able to look back at these snapshots from your life.


Professional Photos Are of a High Quality

Candid images you taken on your phone are super important (seriously — snap away and don’t stop!), but there’s nothing that compares to the high quality of professional images.


You’ll Always Have a Fun Holiday Card to Send

Cheesy as it may sound, having a fun image to put on a Christmas, Easter, or Thanksgiving card is always nice. And loved ones enjoy seeing your face in the mail! On that note, photos also make great gifts year round.


It’s a Reason to Be Together

In recent years, we all know it was difficult to get together. Pressing pause on everything to just be together for a couple hours is a great way to spend an afternoon and forget about all the other stressors in your life.


The Actual Photoshoot Can Be Memorable

We talk a lot about looking at the images and enjoying them after the shoot, but the actual photography session is special, too. It can be a true bonding experience for couples, small families, and large groups. Some even make the commitment to do images once year just for that reason.
