There is no need to wait for a special occasion to have professional pictures done. Everyday is special enough for it. If you haven't had family pictures taken within the past 3 years, find time to do it. We have no guarantees in life, and sometimes just getting together with family or friends and and making a day out of it is a good enough reason to do photos.
Everyone has a close friend that you love spending time with and being your true self around. Lets get together for a fun session that you both will enjoy, and give you a reason to let your real personality show through!
Plan a fun filled shoot, maybe do a 80's theme, water balloon fight or just be yourself, something fun and memorable! Photos of best friends or close families should never be 'all serious' - have fun and enjoy youselves, that's the best part!
