Family Photos With Grandparents Included!

As a mom of four, I know how much work goes into getting your family ready for a photoshoot. Coordinating outfits, asking kiddos to sit still while doing their hair, driving to the location, and then *hopefully* getting there with good attitudes in tow, is no easy feat! What if you had an extra set of hands during your session and were also able to give a beautiful gift to your parents or in-laws? Including grandparents in your family session might be for you!

Are Some of the Best Gifts You Could Give Them

I don’t know about you, but figuring out what to give my parents and in-laws for holidays and birthdays is no easy task. I do my best to come up with something unique or practical, but 9 times out of 10 I resort to a family photo, photo mug, or calendar with personal photos. What grandparent doesn’t want cute photos of their grand babies, amiright??! Even as a photographer, I often fail to remember to take photos with my kids and their grandparents. And when I do remember, it’s usually after a baseball game with sweaty faces or during a birthday party with cake shoved into their mouths. (Please tell me I’m not the only one!)

When booking your next family photoshoot, why not consider asking your parents or in-laws to join you! I’ve even had some clients gift this to their families at Christmas or for birthdays.

Capturing Grandparents With Your Children Allows You To Savor This Time With Them

While I don’t like to talk about this, but, the sad truth is one day our parents will no longer be with us. Our time with our parents is limited. And if they don’t live in the same town as you that makes time with them even more limited. Capturing your children with your parents is a beautiful way to savor this season with them! Perhaps these family photos can be done on a vacation here in San Diego or while your parents or in-laws are in town visiting for the holidays. Whatever the case may be, don’t miss out on the opportunity to capture 3 generations (or more!) together.

Did You Know Family Photos with Grandparents Come at No Extra Cost?!

Yup! You heard me right. Grandparents are complimentary at my sessions. I charge no extra fee to include them. I know how special it is to have photos of your children and your parents. That’s why they are always included, cost-free. 🙂
