Why wait? Booking an Ottawa family photography session | We all know the feeling: the desire to capture those precious family moments in a professional photo session, yet somehow we keep putting it off, promising ourselves we’ll book it “next season” or “next year.” The truth is, there is no perfect season, age, location, or time of day to book a photography session, which is why we’re sharing some of our strategies for avoiding the inevitable procrastination that can come with booking a photo session.

Set a concrete deadline:

Procrastination often thrives in the absence of a clear deadline. By setting a specific date or time frame to book your family photo session, you create a sense of urgency. Write it down on your calendar, set reminders, and commit to meeting that deadline. Treat it as a non-negotiable appointment and honour your commitment to your family to capture this stage of your life.

Break it down into manageable steps:

Sometimes the idea of planning an Ottawa family photo session can feel overwhelming, leading us to delay taking any action. To overcome this, break down the process into smaller, manageable steps. Start by researching local photographers, gather information about pricing and packages, and create a shortlist of potential candidates. Taking these small steps will make the task feel less daunting, and you’ll be more likely to follow through.  If you try to choose a photographer, choose a location, and decide on outfits, all on the same day, you’ll quickly be overwhelmed!

Embrace the present moment:

The slippery slope of “next season, next year” often stems from the belief that there will always be a more convenient time in the future. However, life moves swiftly. Remember that family dynamics change, children grow up quickly, and every stage is worth capturing. Don’t let the illusion of a “perfect” moment in the future hinder you from creating beautiful memories today.
