5 Reasons to Include Grandparents in Family Pictures

Family portraits are nothing new, and in fact, many families have their pictures professionally taken at least once a year, in beautiful locations such as parks or public gardens. It’s a great way to memorialize your growing and changing family and capture important moments in time–freezing them to remember and look back on forever.

While you would never forget to include your child or spouse in your professional family photos, often times the Grandparents are left out.

In fact, according to one family photographer, only about 5% of the family portraits she has taken over the span of her career have included Grandma or Grandpa.
In the hustle of daily life, balancing our own needs and the needs of our parents requiring senior care, we sometimes get caught up in our to-do lists and end up going through the motions without stopping to think about how we could include our parents in small ways that would mean a lot to everyone.

For a senior receiving senior care at home, due to health concerns or mobility issues, feelings of isolation from society and from family may be an issue for some. One way to show them how special they are is to invite them to participate in your family photo session.

Helpful tip: If you live in an area where it’s difficult to hire professional photographers, or your parent receiving senior care cannot easily leave their home, consider asking their caregiver to help out and have them take some pictures of your family together. You won’t regret it!
