How to Choose Your Family Photographer | Houston Family Photographer

Once you have decided to establish a family tradition of having professional photos each year, you are probably overwhelmed by all the choices of family photographers out there. Before you make any investment, let me help you with finding the perfect photographer whom you connect with.

Now with the popularity of digital cameras, anyone can claim themselves a photographer. Then, why would you even bother investing in professional portraits? Because everyone (whether hobbyist or professional) has their own unique style. It is easy to use extensive and colorful props, but not everyone can skillfully control the light and composition, and sparkle the connection in your portraits. I often call photography an art, because a piece of art can touch the deepest part of your heart, inspire and give you a new perspective. The next question is , how do you know what style you’re most drawn to? Look around your house, the colors of your walls, your furniture, your decoration. Do you find a unified theme? Are you more drawn to modern, minimalistic, and clean design? Or do you find more neutral colors, texture of wood, and lots of white space in your house? These artistic images resulting from your family photo sessions should align with the overall theme of your house, because they will eventually become part of the decoration on your walls for the years to come.


Once you’ve narrowed down your list, you should read the About Page of the photographers and get a good sense of their personality. Visit their blog and social media posts as well. Are they friendly, patient, and loving? Do you share anything with them in common? Do you value what they value? I’m so proud to say, all my clients are loving, polite and kind-hearted, who value their family so much that they are willing to make sacrifices to provide the best for their children. Because like-minded people work best together. If you aren’t sure, it always helps to schedule a some phone call and chat with the photographer.

I leave this consideration to the last for a purpose. You’re probably thinking if you can’t afford even your favorite photographer, why waste time researching about them?Because professional photography is indeed an investment. Before I go into details, ladies, let’s talk about shopping! How often do you shop? How much do you spend each time? To be honest with you, I don’t shop for clothes/shoes/handbags year-round. Maybe once or twice a year. My fashion style doesn’t change: I always shop for soft and neutral colors with timeless design.  So I can invest in good quality products that can last for a long time. I view family photos the same way too. You only get them done once a year, that means you basically have 12 months to save up for the photographer you so admire. The good news is, many high-end photographers are running mini sessions this time of the year, so you can hire the photographer you connect with for the portraits that match with your style at the cost you’re able to afford!

Are you ready to hire a photographer to capture the joyful connections in unique, artistic, and authentic images for your family? Now is the perfect time to BOOK your fall mini session in the sun-soaked field. RESERVE YOUR SESSION NOW.
