Why book your Oshawa Family Photography Session every year

Why schedule a yearly family photography session?

Family photos are our memories. You know how quickly your children change. I’m not just saying this because I’m a photographer, but getting yearly photographs of your family is so important! Read on to see why scheduling your yearly Oshawa family photography session is so important!

Your family is always changing

You don’t need me to tell you that the baby years don’t last forever – you already know how fleeting these moments are. Isn’t it amazing that when we are with our children everyday we don’t see the growth, but when we look back at photographs we can see how far they’ve come. The same is true of our relationships. We don’t notice the small changes that happen every day, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t happening. Documenting each stage allows us to see our growth as parents, as a family, and as individuals.

Update your picture frames

I love using picture frames throughout my homes because they are easy to update yearly! I often leave old photographs underneath new ones – it’s always fun to see them when you go to update your photographs. Our homes are not static. They show our family dynamics and how they are constantly changing. Having up-to-date portraits throughout your home brings your home to life.

Have fun with your family

Something you might not consider when you book a session with an Oshawa family photographer is that you are not just booking a photography session, but you’re also planning time to spend with your family. This is quality time spent with each other, playing, snuggling, and just having fun.

Ready to book a session?

The first thing is to find an Oshawa family photographer who’s work speaks to you. Look at a photographer’s portfolio, both on their website and social media accounts. Photography is an artform and there are so many different styles. Find someone with the look you want, who is able to capture the memories you want to remember. Does the photographer offer a client closet for you to use? There are some great local businesses that rent out dresses for clients – Sugarbump Gown Rentals has some great non-maternity options (and my clients receive a discount – just ask me!)

Please feel free to take a look through my portfolio and reach out if you’d like to chat about how we can capture your family together.

How to Choose your Family Photographer


This is your story. Let me help you tell it. I’m Kristin, and I’m so happy you’re here. I’m a Durham region photographer specializing in motherhood, maternity, and newborn photography. Let’s chase sunsets together and create some amazing memories. You’re a dreamer and a romantic. You want someone to fully see you and your family and to capture the beauty in the big moments and the small details. Your favourite photographs are the ones that capture a feeling, not the perfectly posed photos. You crave something a little bit different from the everyday – something bolder, more artistic, and even a little cinematic. I see you. Motherhood isn’t always perfect moments. Motherhood is messy. Motherhood is hard. Motherhood is freaking unbelievable. It’s perfectly imperfect. Let’s capture the beautiful chaos of motherhood.
