New Year resolution: Make family photos part of 2024


Capturing special moments with loved ones through images is a timeless tradition. Whether it’s a spontaneous snapshot of your daughter embracing the family dog or a meticulously arranged family portrait with everyone dressed to perfection, photographs weave the narrative of a well-lived life.


As the new year unfolds, consider making a resolution to embrace photography both at a professional studio and in the comfort of your home. Various forms of photography can transform into cherished keepsakes, freezing moments in time that may carry profound significance in the future. Indeed, a picture speaks volumes—each frame encapsulates a thousand words.


For the coming year, entertain a New Year’s resolution that not only benefits you but also enriches your entire family: Take more pictures! This resolution is simple, meaningful, and entirely attainable, especially with a few practical tips:


  1. Keep the Camera Handy: Ensure your camera—whether traditional, digital, or on your cellphone—is readily accessible. By keeping it within arm’s reach, you’re poised to capture those magical moments, no matter how fleeting they may be.


  1. Get in the Shot: Challenge yourself to step in front of the camera more frequently. This is particularly crucial for parents who often stay behind the lens, directing attention to their children. Celebrate family bonds by having everyone in the frame—these images will be treasured for years to come.


  1. Create a Schedule: Set a goal to take pictures regularly. Some opt to capture one image per day for an entire year, creating a visual diary of their journey around the sun. Others may find success by setting a weekly reminder to ensure a consistent flow of images. Choose a schedule that aligns with your preferences.


  1. Book Family Portraits: Invest in the allure of professional photographs that showcase the best aspects of your family. While an annual family photo session is a staple, consider scheduling sessions for other special occasions, such as birthdays, graduations, religious celebrations, holidays, and anniversaries.


  1. Embrace Creativity: Make photography enjoyable by injecting creativity into your sessions. Dress up as superheroes, make silly faces, recreate moments from the past, or include the family pet. Explore unique themes at local JCPenney Portraits photography events for a touch of originality.


While many resolutions falter within a few months, these tips ensure a sustainable and enjoyable journey. The success lies in the ease of implementation, and the joy of capturing moments becomes a heartfelt way to honor your family throughout the year.
