Booking Denver Family Photography

We live busy lives. Whether it’s running kids to activities, dealing with holiday madness, or just trying to get by day to day, there’s a lot for us to handle. So I can understand why Denver family photography might just feel like another needless thing to add into the calendar.

Especially when you’re carrying a camera in your pocket all the time, right? Can’t YOU just take photos of your family? Realistically, yes. You can. But… it’s definitely not the same, and documenting your family is more than worth the addition to your calendar. So why book Denver family photos? Lots of reasons!

Families change shape all the time.

And you deserve to remember your family NOW.

I’m going to start with the most emotional of the reasons that a family photo session is worth your time. The thing is, families? They change shape all the time. Life is unexpected, and as we all know… tomorrow isn’t promised. I’m not arguing that booking family photos can change that, but what it CAN do is ensure that you have gorgeous snapshots of your family as it is NOW, in this moment. This beautiful, possibly imperfect, unique moment in time. You never know when you’re going to want to be able to look back on those moments, whether your family has changed in big ways, or small ones.

And now that we’ve gotten through the slightly heart-wrenching reason, there are more uplifting ones too!

You deserve to celebrate big moments AND small moments.

Family photography is all about celebrating you. Celebrating your family, your children, and all of the big and small changes and moments of growth that you go through. Whether those changes are your eldest losing his front teeth, or your daughter suddenly gaining three inches in height over a summer, you deserve to be able to look back at the before and afters of those magical little moments. The details that make life beautiful.

Sometimes, it’s about bigger moments. It’s about capturing the glint in your daughter’s eye when she watches her younger brother toddle along. Or it’s about documenting an amazing vacation you’ve scheduled to get away from the hustle and bustle. All of those moments and more are worth remembering, through more than the lens of your iphone.

Surrounding yourself with images of the people you love is like MAGIC.

Professional family photography is so different than the images you can capture on your phone, and not just because you get to LIVE the moments I capture. (As opposed to being behind the camera when you’re taking your own photos on a phone). The other big difference, is the images a professional photographer takes for you? They’re optimized to be printed, and hung on your walls. Which isn’t exactly the case for images taken on a smart phone.

Being able to put together sets of gorgeous images of your family to hang in your home is one of the most magical parts of a photo session. See, when you work with a professional photographer, enjoying the process doesn’t stop at the end of your session. It doesn’t stop when you print your photos, either. Once they’re hung on your walls, placed on your bookshelves, and scattered throughout your home, enjoying those images NEVER stops.

You get to be surrounded by pictures of the people you love, and memories that you get to enjoy, forever. Not just when you have a nostalgic scroll through the photos in your camera roll. Every time you walk down the hallway in your home, you’ll see your daughter’s face. You’ll see gorgeous moments you shared with your husband, wife, or partner. And there’s nothing more magical than that!

Your kiddos are only small once.

I know I said I was done with the heart wrenching things, but at the end of the day… your kids? They’re only small once. The tiny, squishy human you’ve made is going to grow, and you deserve to be able to look back at all of their various phases of growth and smile. To be reminded of their little pig-tails. You deserve to be able to remember the look in their eye exploring your backyard, or playing with their little brother.

No matter how much we try to commit those details to memory, time takes its toll. But when you’ve regularly scheduled family photography sessions, you don’t have to worry about those memories fading. They’ll always be with you, no matter what. Memorialized in archival ink, hanging in your foyer.

They become gorgeous family heirlooms that can last for lifetimes.

Speaking of memorializing moments, when I talk about printing family photos, I’m not just talking about you remembering now, in the short term. I’m talking about you remembering in the LONG term, and your descendents getting to as well. How magical is it to know that the prints you’re hanging on your walls can be passed down? The albums shared with generations of your family to come? We all know the agony of losing digital files (and it’s one of the reasons I recommend printing your photos). And we also know how often we actually print the photos we take on our phones (basically never, am I right?)

But when you intentionally set the time aside to have professional family photos taken, it’s a lot easier to print those images. And then for those to become family heirlooms, to be enjoyed by your children, and your childrens’ children for generations to come.

There are TONS of reasons to book Denver Family Photography!

And I want to make it as easy as possible for you.

So like I said, I know that it can feel like schedule family photography is just another thing to add to the calendar. Just another of the million things that takes up your family’s time. But that time? It’s an investment. It’s an investment in creating memories for your family. An investment in heirloom quality images that can be enjoyed for generations, not just when you’re flipping through images on your phone.

If you’re still on the fence about booking Denver family photos, reach out to me. I’d love to talk to you about how we can ensure that your memories will be preserved after your session, and enjoyed by you and your family for years to come!
