A lot of people come to me asking how often they should get their children photographed and if I were to be completely honest, I’d say every day if you can. I grew up in a home where my parents loved taking pictures and today, I am so grateful to them for the memories I have been able to carry with me. I don’t think you will ever regret having too many wonderful pictures of your family, you may, however, regret not having enough. They will, with time, become your own family heirloom and most treasured memory.
If you are planning to organise a professional photoshoot for your children, you may want to consider at what age they are at. If you are new parents, you may want to photograph your first child as a newborn, this is ideally within the first two weeks of being born, and then a few times during the first year, as this is when children change the most.
After one, you may want to have your child professionally photographed once every year, or every other year, to keep documenting the most important stages of his or her life.
