Quick Before They Grow Up | Eccles Family Then + Now

We watch as our kids grow… from littles to kids to teens to… (I’ll stop there since my mascara is already running). My biggest hope for any family is that they capture their kids in each and every stage.

Sure, it may be cell phone snapshots. It might be a point and shoot you’re using. It may even be another mom on the field trip who had a camera that day.

In the best case, it’s all of those PLUS a regularly scheduled family portrait with your favorite photographer. (cough cough)

The Eccles family knows the value of those memories. Their home is filled with snapshots and framed photos and happy moments frozen in time.

I love working with this adorable family. One, they’re adorable (just look at them!) and two, they know what they like. They love the outdoors, traveling and bike riding. And they love Tosa.

Photography Tip

Regularly scheduled family photos don’t have to be hard! Here are 4 tips to get them scheduled with ease:

  1. SET A REMINDER in your calendar or favorite task app to call your photographer when it’s time to schedule photos. Her phone number is 262-366-7980.

  2. DO IT ONCE at the beginning of the year. Once the date is set (even if it gets moved due to weather or game schedules) at least it’s on your calendar. You don’t have to think about it until it gets closer to the date.

  3. ASK FOR A NUDGE from your photographer. I’ll bet she has no problem giving you a ring at your requested season to get something scheduled. Again, it’s off your plate until it’s time to answer the phone!

  4. RE-BOOK at your Reveal + Selection Appointment. It may feel strange booking another session as you are choosing the photos from your current session, but imagine your delight when you get a call a year later saying it’s time for your next session. How relieving and fun is that?

  5. BONUS TIP! If you choose Stories Framed Photography for your family photos, you will get a reminder to re-book a year after your last session.

Candid family photos are the best!

So there’s a next stage coming soon for the Eccles family. Remember my running mascara? Well, “little” Ezra’s senior photos are up next. Oh dear…

Don’t wait! If you haven’t already, take a few minutes today and schedule your family photos. You’ll be glad you did.
