I think everyone needs family photos. They don't have to be anything fancy or posed, but documenting how your family changes each year is something that memory alone can't quite explain. I love looking back through our old family scrapbooks and Christmas cards to see how much my sisters and I have changed and grown over the years. Whenever I get to do family photos for others, I try to bring that into the session - make it something fun, so when you look back on the pictures you remember that you had such a good time with your family that day. Don't worry, matching outfits are definitely NOT required. The more yourself you are, the better!!
