There is no question that custom Portraiture is an investment. It is not a fly by the seat of your pants decision or expenditure. So why is it important? Why should you save money to get these images.
Well they truly are once in a lifetime! Your only pregnant for 9 short months (though I know at the time it feels like a lifetime). Your newborn is only sleepy and curly with those wrinkles for a few weeks. I promise you that once he/she is only 2 weeks it will feel like they have grown enough for a full year already. Your sweet baby grows so fast in the first year, smiling, then rolling, then sitting, and then they are walking, no running and off on their own. I know you do not want to forget any of those details. And it only goes from there. Soon they are toddlers with giant personalities. Then they have those adorable toothless grins and grow into themselves as big kids then adolescents before your eyes. It goes so fast. I myself look at my 16 year old and think how can it be?
So, really that is why. Is there any question? The big answer is because it is important to capture all of those changes. It is important to have those memories for the rest of their lives and for generations to come. Exist in photos with them! I promise that they will look at those with loving eyes and be forever grateful that you got in photographs with them.
These images are prized possessions for all time. So, take the time to schedule a session, to save money if you need to. It is worth it. Memories are truly priceless!
