Bring the Parents

When scheduling your photo session, make sure to include everyone and bring the parents!  We have a package specially designed for this since it is such a frequent request.  For single families traveling with the grandparents, we add a $50 extra charge to the Basic package, giving you our Basic plus Grands photo package.

Making memories with the Grandparents!

I would give anything to have just a few photos of my grandparents.  They were such a big part of my childhood and besides a few polaroids, I only have my memories.  For this reason, I try to make sure that we take family photos of my children with my parents as often as possible.  After all, no one loves your babies like the grandparents!

Photo night is for everyone!

Your parents may not necessarily be interested in joining the grandkids at the water park, or riding gocarts.  But you can definitely bring the parents to your photo session!  This is something that interests the whole family.  It is a great evening out and if you have a sunset session, it works out to head straight to dinner afterward.

It may become a vacation tradition.

I have had several families that schedule beach photos every year say that is is their favorite vacation memory.  Not only do we have fun at photos, when you get home, and your vacation is a fond memory, you get an email.  Your downloadable link from Beach Shutters Photography will be arriving anywhere from 1-6 weeks after your photos are taken.  This is something to look forward to for sure!

Photos make the perfect gift!

If you plan to bring the parents to your photo session, it makes a great gift.  Mothers Day, Birthday, Christmas or just because, they will love it!  Next Christmas when you are racking your brain for gift ideas, you are in luck.  Printed photos or a big canvas for above the fireplace make the best presents for grandparents and everyone!

Grandparents love photos!

When I ask my parents what they need, I always get the same answer.  We don’t need anything, just send us some photos of the kids!  That is easy enough and with today’s printing capabilities, you can get very creative.  How about a blanket, with the kid’s pic, a coffee mug or even a t-shirt!  They don’t think it is tacky at all, lol!
