The Brkaric family brought so much warmth and love to their family session in late November despite the cold and dreary temps! We laughed, joked around, and had just a wonderful time together capturing their family’s special connection at Homestead Pine Tree Farm in Lafayette, Indiana.
While most of the families I photograph have small children, I believe with all my heart that it is so incredibly important to capture your family at EACH AND EVERY stage, not just when they are little. With two kids in high school and one off to college, the Brkaric family knew they had a short window of time to get their family photos in over the Thanksgiving Break. It was beautiful to see how they prioritized this time to capture their connection and love so that they will have these memories to cherish.
Do you have teenagers and have contemplated getting family photos but avoided it because you weren’t sure if your kids would dig it or didn’t think it was worth it as they got older? I truly believe that prioritizing these special moments speaks volumes to your kiddos as they get older. These photos tell your story. They tell a story of love, connection, and authenticity despite the all the ups and downs, struggles and trials that every family faces as kids grow older.
Our kids need to have memories of us WITH them… and our kids will remember how we prioritized being in photos with them. It’s not just about documenting their growth… it’s about remembering and cherishing all these good memories TOGETHER!
Have teenagers and considering family photos this year? I don’t believe you will regret it!
