We're getting ready for family pics next week, and I just love putting together some cohesive family style. The focus is definitely on the kids – Adam and I jump in for just a couple of pics. The goal is to make sure we look like we all go together, without being overly matchy-matchy.
I love getting photos of the kids every year around their birthdays (end of July), and we are spoiled to have great access to the best photographers around. We're office mates!
The best part of scheduling this shoot every year is knowing that we'll have great portraits of the kids as they grow, and we'll actually get them printed to keep forever. I have hundreds of photos of my children taken on my phone of course, but they usually play on Apple TV or through my Instagram feed – and that's not an archive system for photos I'll be able to pass down for generations.
So schedule at least one photoshoot a year for your family get those portraits printed!
