Maintaining family traditions can be tricky, especially during the holidays. They tend to require a centerpiece to hold things together. Typically, that centerpiece has been the holiday dinner. For various reasons, holiday dinners have gone from “dinner will be served at 4o’ clock.” The group comes together in waves. Traditions fall apart as a result.
A Return to Quality Time Spent Together
It seems that each year schedules gets more and more hectic and plans become more and more fragmented. This is no different during the holidays. Your family needs a new centerpiece to hold the holidays together. A family portrait is the perfect way to get the family together at a specific place and time and have a professionally made photograph to remember it.
The Family Portrait Feast
Make the holidays about celebrating family again by scheduling your portrait the day as the family feast. It doesn’t have to be such a formal affair. The family is gathered around the centerpiece event, the family photo, then after is the opportunity to sit and eat and be with everyone at the same time. Another great idea is to involve the feast in the photo. Gather the family around the table for a fantastic family portrait that will surely be a family heirloom. Each year, as your family grows and changes the yearly holiday family feast portrait will become the centerpiece that brings you all together at the same place and at the same time – you know, like a tradition. (The day before the feast or the day after the feast is also a good time for the family portrait)
