Having family portraits taken for a new family should be a top priority. I remember growing up and having to take family pictures at least once every year. My family would go to a local photographer and spend a few hours getting all of our family pictures as well as our own pictures taken. Even though I hated it growing up, I am so happy my parents forced me into going. What memories I have now of my family and with the start of my new family we will be able to look back on pictures of my past to not only remember the good times but also to see how much our children look like us at a young age.
Having family portraits done at least once a year will help you build up a portfolio of memories your children will love when they are adults. Once they begin their families, they can look back at their own photos to see resemblances.
Sometimes it may be hard to find a family photographer in your area, especially if you live in a small town. It might take some research online in order to find a good family photographer in your area but with so many people taking up photography as a business, there most likely will be a few photographers to choose from in your area.
For instance if you lived in Weiser Idaho, finding a good family photographer may prove to be a challenge. We were able to find a good family photographer Washington and in Idaho, but only after looking through many websites. Take your time with finding a professional photographer because these will be pictures you and your family will cherish for the rest of your lives and then one day your grand kids and great grand kids will look back at them as well.
