Stop making excuses!!!! | Carmen- Dudools Family Photography Brisbane
You can have beautiful photos OR you can make excuses… but you can’t have both!
So many times when I’m speaking to mums and I mention I’m a family lifestyle photographer capturing lots of different family milestones I hear every reason in the book as to why they can’t have photos taken...
It usually starts like this… Oh, I would love to have my children photographed but…
I don’t have babies any more
I’ll break your camera as I’m not photogenic
My husband hates photos
I need to lose 10 kg before I take family photos
My baby has not or is not x y or z yet
I have nothing to wear
Can I just tell you that your kids love and adore you just because your mum and that in itself is the number 1 reason you should exist in family photos? When your children look back at family photos and photos of you hugging them. I guarantee they will not see any of the insecurities about you that you do… they just see their beautiful parents and how much you love them!
Your family doesn’t have to look a certain way, act a certain way, be a certain age, or be anything but themselves. Plus the more time you spend making excuses is another day they get older and not documented.
Each stage of our life we just go through the motions and we are just trying to get through each day but when you take the time to have a family photo experience we slow down and realise all the magical things about our family that are important to us right now.
The best part about family photos is the gift of memories… you may not realise it now but when you look back on these photos in 10 years from now. The memory gate will be opened to flood you with all the little things that make your family unique and loved.
Your family is beautiful, kind caring and loving… most of the time haha and I want to show you the complete beauty that I see with my camera. Of the little moments that I see that happen within your family.
Here is one thing that I know to be true. Time seems to go faster and faster each year. Your family will continue to change each year. Having professional family photos can be a fun and meaningful experience that will allow you to document your life in an artistic way. Before you know it your kids will be all grown up and all you will have is the memories in your photographs
So don’t make excuses. Take time to photography ALL of your family and have the full photo experience you deserve for your family.
