If you are looking at this article right now, it’s a pretty safe bet to say you are over the moon about your children. If not, you wouldn’t be reading this. You think the world of your child and want them to feel the same way. Unfortunately, that isn’t always the case. In fact, one study found that 47% of young girls are actually held back due to low self-esteem. It affects all ages, and, it’s not just girls. Studies have found that the numbers aren’t that different for boys. Something needs to change, and research is finding that family portraits can help. Here’s why:
First of all, every child is looking to belong. It doesn’t matter if they are teenagers or toddlers, this need is in them. No decent parent wants to ever think that their child feels lost in the world. Family portraits are a way to capture your family unit. They show who your family is and that each member belongs. Experienced family photographers know how to capture the bond between the family. And, displaying the portraits around your house provides a constant reminder to your child that they belong.
All people long to feel loved, children included. Family portraits can capture the bond between you and your child. Having family portraits taken every year is a great way to track your children as they grow. In addition, displaying the photos gives them a constant reminder that you love them. Portraits can capture that special bond between parents and children. When your child sees these portraits on a regular basis they will have a constant reminder that you love and cherish them.
Lastly, your child needs to feel important. It takes time and money to have your family portraits taken. But it communicates to your child that they are important. Family portraits show each member of the family that they matter in the world and your family. As you show off the portraits to everyone that enters your front door, your children will know they are important to you. Teenagers will most likely act like this is annoying. However, deep inside this is feeding a deep need that every child has within them.
