Why You Should Take Yearly Birthday Portraits | Greenville Family Photographers

Families, Milestones

Greenville family photographers can help you document your family every year as your children grow. It can be easy to get busy with life and forget to schedule yearly family portraits. I recommend scheduling portraits around your child’s birthday! This can become a fun part of the birthday tradition for your child, making him or her feel extra loved and important. I recommend scheduling this birthday portrait session around the birthday date without worrying about coordinating the exact date. If you are hosting a party you don’t want any added stressors on that day!

Highlight The Special Birthday Theme

It’s also a way to make sure you are capturing priceless memories of your child at every age! While normal family portraits are more about capturing the whole family, this can can be a special time when we focus on any special interests your child has at that particular age. A great example of this can be seen right on this birthday dress made by Elizabeth Layne Heirloom. This sweet birthday girl wanted a rainbow-super-hero themed party, and that is exactly what she got! You can look closely here to see the theme on her dress!

An Opportunity to Get Updated Portraits of the Whole Family!

In addition to individual portraits of your birthday gal or guy, you should always include the whole family. The immediate family members play a huge role in the lives of your children, and your relationships within your family are SO important. So at the end of the portrait session, you should include the whole family in a few shots. Notice that mom and little sister also wore outfits to compliment the rainbow theme!
