If you are thinking that it might be time to have some new family photos but you don't have a special reason to take them, think again! Here are some real moments in your life that would make for some fantastic family treasures.
1. Date night
Whether it's for a nice dinner for a special occasion or a quiet movie night at home spending quality time together, having photographs taken of a date can tell a beautiful story of your love.
2. Home baked Goodies
Picking out a recipe, gathering supplies, and creating messes. All perfect ingredient for a personalized family documentary photo session.
3. Baby REGISTRY shopping
You and your significant other, walking around the store picking out cute baby stuff and questioning the necessity of the outlandish optional gadgets makes for an adorably fun maternity shoot!
4. Building a fort
Pull out those blankets and create your family's very own sanctuary. It's the perfect place to cuddle up close and create memories together that will last a lifetime.
5. Baby's first time home
The joy of leaving the hospital mixed with the nervousness of stepping foot into your home for the first time as a family, it's a homecoming worth remembering.
6. A Long Walk
Photographing a peaceful evening walk, taking the chance to exploring your current neighborhood can make for a great walk down memory lane years later when the kids have grown.
7. Science experiment
What kid can resist the coolness of a great science experiment?
Making hypothesis + discovering answers + quizical faces = a great time and fantastic photos.
8. Trip to a nature center
If your family is a fan of the great outdoors, you can photograph your adventures of discovery together at a local nature center.
9. Planting a garden
Whether it's planting seeds into the ground or harvesting the crops in the late summer afternoon, photos of you and your family working the land would be amazing.
10. AN EXTENDED Family Outing
Help to preserve your children's memories of the good times they were able to spend with their aunts, uncles, cousins and grandparents by photographing a group activity.
