Have you hear the term middle mom? It’s that time period in between when your children are babies or toddlers and when they are about to leave the next. I’m a Marietta family photographer and middle mom myself! I know that during these years your weeks are slam packed with school activities, homework assignments, and sports. But it’s so important to make time to schedule family photos!
Children change and grow rapidly during the baby and toddler years. So it’s very common for parents to prioritize scheduling portraits during these years. It’s so important to continue documenting the changes as your children grow!
Every stage with children is different. It brings its own challenges and joys. I believe every stage deserves to be remembered and celebrated! Your relationship with your children will deepen and change as they age. I believe you should commemorate every age, because as trite as it sounds, it really does go SO fast!
Children may not always be thrilled with the idea of family portraits, but it’s good for them! As your Marietta family photographer, I try to make sessions as fun as possible for children. Think of it as a time to connect with your children without the screens and technology competing for their attention.
Another perk is that family portraits can actually boost self esteem. Studies have shown that when children see portraits of themselves on the wall, it can give them a feeling of being valued and loved. It also creates a sense of belonging to a family unit. It’s a great way to ground them and boost self esteem.
