Why Including Photos Of Just Parents Is Important To A Family Session

 The foundation of your family is you & your partner

As a family photographer in Pittsburgh, I try include a photo of just parents in the gallery during a session. There are a few reasons why I believe this is important:

  1. It captures the love between the parents. As parents, we get so caught up in the everyday life that we forget to take a moment to just be together. Including a photo of just mom and dad in the gallery allows them to see the love and connection they share. It serves as a great reminder to slow down and appreciate each other.
  2. It documents their relationship. A family session is not just about capturing the kids, but about documenting the whole family and their relationships. Including a photo of just mom and dad in the gallery helps to tell their love story.
  3. It’s a keepsake for the kids. When the kids grow up and look back on family photos, they will want to see photos of their parents as a couple. Including a photo of just mom and dad in the gallery provides a visual representation of their parents’ relationship. It’s the foundation of their family history.
  4. It’s a chance for mom and dad to have a moment alone. During a family session, there is often chaos and excitement with the kids. Having a moment alone can be a great reset.

Overall, including a photo of just mom and dad in the gallery during a family session is important for capturing the love and connection between the parents, documenting their relationship, providing a keepsake for the kids, and allowing mom and dad to have a moment alone together. It’s a small but meaningful addition to any family photo gallery
