Don’t Wait Until the Fall to Book Your Family Photos

“So take that phone call from your momma and just talk away
‘Cause you’ll never know how bad you wanna ’til you can’t someday
Don’t wait on tomorrow ’cause tomorrow may not show
Say your sorries, your I-love-yous, ’cause man you never know
If you got a chance, take it, take it while you got a chance
If you got a dream, chase it, ’cause a dream won’t chase you back
If you’re gonna love somebody
Hold ’em as long and as strong and as close as you can
‘Til you can’t”
– Cody Johnson
This song has been living rent free in my head for a while. I think the truth he speaks has touched all of us in one way or another. And while it’s an inspiring reminder to spend time with the ones we love, I can’t help but draw parallels with taking and having family photos.
It’s so easy to put them off. To wait another year. To make weight loss goals, let searching for an outfit hold us back…the reasons go on. But I urge you to push them aside.
No one is promised tomorrow and I don’t know a single soul who regrets having photos of their family.
Your child is only who they are right now in the moment today- and tomorrow it will be gone. Don’t let these moments slip by.
Which brings me to my next point…booking. I’m not here to try to sell you on booking me. I only want you to book someone. Hey- I would love to be that someone, but mostly I want you to take the photos.
Don’t wait until October to book an October photo session. Don’t wait until your youngest is 10 and you’re wondering where those little years went.
Make family photos a breeze-
- Book 3 months in advance for your desired month
- Ask your photographer for styling help and buy outfits ahead of time
- Just do it- don’t hesitate
To honor their oldest child and document a new chapter, this family scheduled a maternity session. They could not have done a better job paining outfits with textures and great color, and the rest came together magically right before sunset.
If you’ve gotten this far- it’s your sign. Schedule your family session and hold on to those you love.
