1) Photography Style

First, select a family photographer whose style you absolutely love! Even if it means driving a few hours or taking a family trip to another state to have your yearly family photos documented! If you love the photographer’s style, chances are, you’ll probably love the photographer behind the camera too! This brings me to my second point.

2) Photographer’s Story – Hire the Right Family Photographer

Every photographer has a story, and every photographer has a family they were born into or became a part of at some point in their life. If a photographer is photographing families, it’s important that they are open about their family’s story and their life experiences. This gives you a connection point with the photographer and helps you to know and understand them before you even show up to your family session experience with them. It also establishes trust between you and the photographer. Also, if the photographer has taken the time to explain their story, they are going to value you, your family, and your story as well because they understand that every family has a unique story to share.

As a family photographer myself, we do this for all our families because the families we get to serve through the art of photography become a part of our story and journey as well. I have countless stories of how we’ve been blessed by serving our JC Families. This brings me to my second reason. Choose a family photographer who you personally resonate with. You want to feel connected to them and their story. And you can only do this if the photographer is open about who they are on their website.

3) Client Experience – Hire the Right Family Photographer

Client experience is vitally important when selecting a family photographer because you want to know that your investment is a valuable investment as well as an overall amazing experience that will have you telling your friends and family about your experience!

4) Session Offerings

When hiring a family photographer, it’s important to understand what they offer. Normally, this will be explained by a phone call, an investment guide, and a contract. A contract is vitally important when hiring a photographer. If they don’t offer a contract, don’t hire them. A professional contract protects you both, and that’s an important factor to consider when looking for the right family photographer.

To explain a little more about what we actually do, we offer two types of family photography. First, we offer outdoor family sessions. Second, we offer in-home newborn and family sessions. And of course, we also offer maternity sessions as well. I want to give some back story as to why we offer both outdoor family sessions and in-home family sessions. Recently, I had the wonderful opportunity of photographing my first in-home family session, and I loved it! It was so much fun to be in this family’s home celebrating the birth of their fifth child and documenting this time in their family’s life. Therefore, I decided that I definitely wanted to start offering this style of photography session even more. Below are a few images from this beautiful newborn session!
