Photo Worthy Life Events | Photo Tip Tuesday | Dublin, Ohio Photographer
Last week I discussed a few life events that absolutely need photographs. If you missed it, or would like to recap, that post can be found here. This week I will discuss some of the other life events that should have photographs.
- Engagement Pictures. While these are not necessary, they are a lot of fun and are a great memory to hold on to. Engagement photos are also great to use for wedding save-the-date’s, invitations, guest books, and slide shows. An engagement session can help you get more comfortable in front of the camera and can result in better wedding photos. Scheduling the engagement session with the photographer who will be at your wedding is also a great way for them to get to know you better and understand your style.
- Anniversary Photos. Every year my husband and I have our photos taken near our anniversary. You don’t even have to hire a professional to take these images. Twice now we had my dad take them with my camera (see image below) and the next few years I may just take them with a tripod. It is just nice to look back and see how you change each year.
- Maternity Photos. This genre of photography has grown a lot over the past few years and it is a beautiful moment in life that deserves it’s own photo session. There are many different styles when it comes to maternity photography and you don’t have to do something that makes you feel awkward or silly. This session is about you and remembering this important moment in your life, so enjoy it, and make it what you want it to be.
- Baby Milestones (3 mo, 6 mo, and 12 mo). I actually offer a milestone package with my newborn sessions because babies change so much in the first year of their life and it is so important to capture the milestones that occur during these times. Holding his head up while laying on his tummy, sitting up, standing, and walking are all huge milestones that you want to remember from your child’s first year.
- Family photos. A lot of parents want pictures of the their children but neglect to include themselves in the photos. Please, please, please at least jump in on a few. I would hate for you to regret it later. Keep in mind that when your children are grown, they will want to have pictures with you in them.
