How Family Portraits Boost Your Child’s Self-Esteem | Family Photographer Denver Colorado

One of the hidden but powerful aspects of family photography that moms and most family photographers rarely consider, is how it can help us raise children with stronger confidence in their own worth and abilities. Psychologists and experts have done some work in recent decades exploring this area. But how can family photography, specifically family portraits, help boost a child’s self-esteem?

I think it is really important to show our families as a family unit. It’s helpful for children to see themselves as a valued and important part of their family. When a child sees a family portrait with them included, they say to themselves: ‘This is why I belong here. This is where I come from.”

When It Comes To Having The Greatest Positive Impact For Your Child, Which is Better, Digital Images or Paper Prints?

 

Rather than print and display family photographs, families are increasingly enjoying their images in a digital form. Either a cell phone, a laptop, or simply on social media. But does an image on a computer screen have the same impact for helping families boost a child’s self-esteem? I personally think our family photographs belong displayed up on the walls of our home for everyone to see. It fills my heart with joy just seeing our portraits in giant canvases up on the walls in every room… our portraits in prints displayed on our fridge so I can see them when I’m cooking dinner each night. All our picture frames filled with sweet family members near and far… and those that are sadly not with us anymore. Photographs are very powerful, at any age.

I think placing a our family photo somewhere in home where children can see them every day without having to turn on a device or click around on a computer to find it really hits home for that child and gives them a sense of reassurance and comfort. They have a certainty about them and a protecting quality that nurtures a child. It lets them know where they are in this world and that they are loved and cared for deeply.

There is something very powerful in touching your fingers to an actual print. Touching the photograph where a face is smiling… it is the same thing as touching a book when you read it. There’s a lot of stimulation of the brain when you have that sensory experience. That is a bit lost in the move to digital these days. You are touching a keyboard, mouse or a touchscreen but you are not touching the image.

Experts recommend having photographs of your child with your family placed in their bedroom so it can be one of the last things they see before they fall asleep and the first thing they may see when they wake up the next morning.

“It says we love you and care about you. You’re important.”

The H Family | Denver CO Family Photographer

Oh these little ones have grown up so much over the past couple years! Miss Gwen is such an awesome Big Sister and it seems like it was just yesterday that I photographed little Creed’s newborn and 12 month portraits. I just love seeing all our families come back each year to update their family and children’s portraits. They grow up so fast! My little guy is already 11 years old and sometimes it’s hard to believe he was this size… So I’m thankful to have our framed portraits and canvas hung up around our house. Even those photo albums I can look through whenever I want. If you haven’t updated your family portraits in a few years, please contact us today for more information. We love to get out in the Denver Colorado area for our family portraits sessions. There are so many lovely locations around here. We met up at Red Rocks for the H Family.

The S Family | Denver Colorado Family Photographer

The “S” Family is just awesome! I work with little ones all the time, so getting out with some older teenage kiddos was super fun! Mom had told me that they haven’t had any professional family photos taken of them in a few years and I’m so glad she contacted me to set up a fall family portrait session for her family.

We met up at Red Rocks in Morrison Colorado. It’s gorgeous for every season of the year there. I can’t wait to see these four, year after year, and see how much they grow and change! It’s never too late to schedule a professional portrait session for your family. Contact me today and lets get your family photos updated. We can even create some beautiful Christmas gifts for your family and friends!

The P Family | Denver Colorado Family Photographer

Oh that sweet smile!!! This little gal hammed it up for me this year! Which I was excited about since she didn’t budge on the smiles last fall 🙂

Isn’t this family just the cutest?! Miss Adalyn was such a joy to photograph. She was on the move and kept me running around the whole time! But that made a fun game for her and we got lots of smiles. We also played silly games with sticks… Gotta use whatever those little ones think are fun 🙂

There’s still time before the leaves are gone, to grab those last minute fall family sesion slots. Contact me for details…. www.brandycarusophotography.com
