Having three kids makes life filled with fun and adventure and tons of photo opportunities. It also makes you a bit busier than you ever anticipated at time. You are often making sure that what you’ve done for each child, you’re doing with your third child. One area that I know I’ve not done my best is with printing formal photo portraits for my third child. Truthfully getting pictures done with our whole family is a challenge in of itself.
I love visiting friends who have their family portraits hanging around their homes. It brings such warmth and love to the home environment. However making myself take them and get them printed off is a different story. We have all sorts of personalities in our family, especially with our youngest who just hasn’t really found a love of having her pictures taken in a formal way. I can capture great shot of her while I’m just having fun capturing her in the moment or even at times for the site but put her in a traditional portrait studio and that’s just not her things since tiny age. Mommy confession time, glancing around the walls of my home I started to notice that I’m not printing as many pictures of her as my other two kids. I knew I needed to find a solution and fast!

Finding a Portrait Studio that is a Fit for Your Family
I have a few awesome photos from our trips to New York, Chicago, St. Augustine, Toronto, San Francisco, Texas and my son’s college graduation that I would love to have up on my wall too. Their 8×10 Aluminum option or gorgeous Acrylic Option is catching my eye for many of those.

Finding Time to Schedule Family Pictures
I had a big desire to have a family portrait done with my kids, the last formal one we had was when I was pregnant with my 4 year old. We’ve tried a few times but they just never turned out the way my husband and I envisioned. So we decided to book a portrait with Family Art Photography during one of our trips to Orlando. I loved that I was able to talk with my photographer Brooke about how the session would be set up. She even gave some tips for what to wear, which at times can be a big decision, or at least for me. The one thing that stands out is that you also have your kids pack their swim suits because they do water portraits too. How cool is that?
Choosing the Right Location for Photos
Fast Quality Printing in the Studio
Brooke designed some ideas for setting up a collection of our portraits together on our wall in our house. The way their portraits are designed they can be placed in a variety of ways. The aluminum prints even have the option of having a magnet added to them so that you could move them around on an aluminum backdrop piece too.
