It’s not Your Father’s Photo Studio – or your Mom’s for that matter. The photographic industry has changed dramatically in the last 5 years and no where is this more evident than in the professional photographic studio business. A more casual society, the advent of good quality cameras being incorporated in smart phones, and the multitude of printing options now available directly to consumers have shifted the need for a professional photographer away from many family portrait events. Whereas family groups were typically only photographed during formal portrait events at weddings or portrait sessions families today are photographed in part or entirety almost daily. While the nature of the photos is casual it is nevertheless removing the need for an updated family portrait to preserve a memory.
