You’ve splashed out on a family photo session and now it’s time to choose your favourites. They’re all so beautiful you can’t decide, you want them all, but do you really need them? And what will you do with them all anyway?


There are so many answers that come to mind when I’m asked this question but the first and foremost for me is the sense of belonging photographs give to our children.

Photographs of the whole family, with their siblings and individual ones of themselves throughout the house remind kids of how important they are. It can give them a confidence boost when they need it most.

It’s really important that we are in these photos too, not only does it show our children that we value ourselves it adds to the feeling that they are part of something special.

Of course little children love seeing photos of themselves and the people they love. As they get older our kids often need a reminder that they do fit in somewhere, and photographs can provide a strong but silent message to teenagers that no matter what happens in the outside world they are still loved.
