Here we are about to end another school year for the kids and begin what I hope will be a fun filled family summer for all of us. You may have gotten the usual school picture this year, which have come leaps and bounds from when I was a kid, I have to say!! Maybe you opted out, though, with the thought in mind that you would get a nice family session or milestone portrait session this year. Maybe you've even got a graduating senior and you just never found the time to nail down that senior session to commemorate the occasion.
Now you're feeling like it's too late. This time of year is hectic and with sports and graduations and subsequent parties, vacation planning, summer camps and the ever growing list of responsibilities we have...you think you just have to give up on the idea of a great portrait. After all, planning ahead has been hard and lining something up last minute would likely prove impossible, right?
BUT...why not just try? It never hurts to try!
I can only speak for myself here, but as a mom and in my day to day, I tend to be somewhat last minute for these kinds of things so I understand how time just gets away from you even when you have the best intentions.
As a photographer, I do set appointments and dates ahead of time, but I also try to keep myself somewhat flexible because I think there are others out there, just like "mom-me", who just find some time and want to grab an opportunity without having planned months in advance.
So maybe you put off that portrait...grab that next chance, call your local photographer and capture that moment before it's gone!
