You are about to invest in a portrait session, but want to make sure you get the most out of your St. Louis family portrait session? I have created a 6 step guide about how to get the most out of your St. Louis Family Portrait Session!
It’s really shocking how fast your kids grow up. One day, they’re learning to roll over for the first time and then all of a sudden, they’re 10 and complaining you “never do what they want to do”, even though you just played Scooby-Doo Clue 5 times in a row.
Capturing each stage of their life is really such a gift. From the happy, exciting newborn stage to the threenager, to the preteen, being a parent is such a cool experience. My favorite quote… I cannot figure out where I read it or the exact wording, but it went something like- it’s hard to say goodbye to each version of your child that you meet. And I love that. It really really sums up parenthood.
I love my kids and and want them to grow, but man it’s so hard to say goodbye to the newborn you snuggled to sleep, the 3 year old you played dress up with all day and that happily helped you with your chores, the 5 year old that you spent hours and hours teaching to read and that wants you to snuggle them to sleep, and the 8 year old you’re playing board games and baseball with for hours. It’s really hard to say goodbye to that. Which is why family pictures are SOOOO IMPORTANT!
Every single year, you should be documenting your ENTIRE family (moms need to be in the pictures, too!)
It really goes by too fast to skip out, so it is very important to take those St. Louis family portraits so there are no regrets and you can remember all those versions of your kids. So, preparing for your portrait session and planning it out ahead of time to best document your family is so important. There is so much to think of, but I’ve compiled a list of 6 Steps on how to get the most out of your St. Louis family portrait session!
