One thing that I hear a lot when I photograph families is "we haven't taken family pictures in years" or "we have never taken family pictures". Just today I was looking for some family pictures and I honestly could not find any. It made me sad. I can see how easy it is for families to forget about pictures or to overlook the importance of taking family pictures. The thing is, one day you'll look back and wish you had the pictures, but once a moment is gone, its gone forever. So please don't overlook an opportunity to get your family together and shoot some pictures. Make it fun. Dress up, have some lunch, and spend an evening with a photographer.
