It happens every year…”Help – we had our family photos done and I’m not happy!”
Often, I get these calls from well-meaning moms who were trying to stretch the family budget by saving money on a novice or just-starting-out photographer. I’ve been there – I get it. And with the economy contracting, everyone is doing what they can to save. Unfortunately, the old axiom “you get what you pay for” is often true, especially in the field of photography.
Sometimes, paying less for something that’s “just OK” is fine. Like laundry soap. Or a generic brand of shampoo. Or whatever it is you don’t care about TOO much.
But when it comes to your family, the memories you make together, and the art you hang on your walls…do you want “just OK”? Or do you want to LOVE what you see every day? Do you want your heart to swell every time you walk by that canvas, delighting in your child’s perfectly captured expression that just oozes personality? Um, yeah! Save me a spot NOW!
I’ve been told time and again that the real expressions, the interactions between family members, and making sure that Mom always looks GREAT are what make my images stand out…and it’s worth paying for. Heck yes, save me a spot now!
If you’re ready to break up with bad family photos and have a photography experience that will not only result in gorgeous artwork for your home but will actually be an enjoyable family evening (yes! It’s true!), jump on over to the calendar to schedule your fall date. (But hurry – I only have THREE weekend spots left in October!)
