It is that time of the year when family comes from all over the world to be together and celebrate. As you gather family from near and far, it is important to focus on being with your loved ones and rejoicing in the love and gratitude that homecomings inspire.
During all of the fun it is easy to forget to take family reunion photos. But trust me when I say you will regret it if your don’t take the time to capture quality photographs of everyone together again.
Why Family Reunion Photos Are So Important
Gathering the family and taking a bunch of photos sounds like a hassle, I know, but it is worth it. Here’s why:
You Are Creating a Keepsake
Years from now your great, great-grandkids will pull these photos out of a dusty box and laugh at the fashions you wore and the way you styled your hair. They will pass the photo around and point out the features they share with each family member and chuckle at the babies who are now adults.
There are certain photographs that get passed down from generation to generation. These are the kind of photographs that are taken at family reunions.
How Many Chances Do You Really Get?
More often than not we are only able to get one portion of the family together at a time. When the whole family shows up for a family reunion it is practically a miracle. Everyone will say, “Let’s do this again soon,” but chances are it will be years before you manage to coordinate schedules and organise a second family reunion.
Don’t let the opportunity pass you by. While you have everyone together make sure you capture plenty of photographs. That way you don’t have to worry that you missed your chance. And if you are lucky enough to have another family reunion again soon, you and your family will have fun seeing how everyone has changed since the last photograph was taken.
If It’s Done Right, It Can Be A Lot of Fun
Family photo shoots don’t have to mean everyone stands in a line and plasters a fake smile on their face while squinting against the sun. Family reunion photos can be an enjoyable activity to incorporate into the day.
Gather everyone together for a fun and playful photo shoot that highlights the qualities that make your family one-of-a-kind. This way you will enjoy the process and you will end up with gorgeous photographs that are true to your family’s personality.
