When I heard from this mom, she told me that her kids were 2.5 and 1, and that they'd never had family photos taken before, and it was about time! It was the brink of spring, the weather was far from perfect, the leaves had yet to emerge on the trees, and I asked her to push her kids past their bedtime for this first foray into family photography. And I'll tell you - they crushed it. The kids were a blast, mom and dad had fun, even their puppy joined us for a bit.
Most important, there is never a wrong time to schedule your first family photo session - whether your baby is just chillin in utero and you're planning a newborn session, or they're about to head off to college. Every step from beginning to the end of these precious 18 years we're lucky to have our kids home with us could be the *right* time. It doesn't have to be a milestone or special occasion. Just an opportunity to document this moment in time for your family - before they go and grow and change on you again.
If you're looking through your photos on your phone wondering how your babies have possibly gotten so big so fast, and you're realizing that they're all a bit blurry or that you're never in the frame yourself, today might be the day to contact me about scheduling a session.
