We live in a day an age where photography is more accessible and probably more popular than ever before. I mean, hi Instagram. A platform that has single-handedly upped the photography game of the average person. It’s so great! More people are educated on what makes a picture interesting or good to look at. Also thanks to our phones, we all carry a fairly decent camera with us almost everywhere we go so almost nothing goes undocumented. I for one am so grateful that when my kiddos are doing something really adorable I can just whip out my phone and be able to treasure that moment forever. Unfortunately because photography equipment is so accessible, there are a lot of people out there that don’t know exactly what they are doing when it comes to running a business. I was totally in that boat when I started learning photography. There is A LOT to learn and know, I had no idea how much I really didn’t know. I thought if I had a fancy camera, I could take fancy pictures. Haha, boy was I wrong. I have come to learn that photography is a luxury business and there are definitely all types of people for all types of sessions and budgets but before you make your decision on who to chose to take your family photos consider these things, some may matter to you, some may not.
