Family photos are so valuable because they are taken with people who mean the most to you. They are of children that are growing up, parents that are growing older or family and moments that we will never have again. I sometimes take for granted the moments I have with my family because I think they will last forever, but when I go back and look at the photos I realize that time is passing me by & my children are growing up so fast.
One client told me that she had never done a family portrait & had decided that it was time. She knew that her daughter would be changing, and needed to hold on to her little girl through pictures. I am so thankful that we have photographic record of our lives. When I was growing up taking pictures was something you did once every few years. When I go through my childhood photos I literally only have 5 or 6. I only have one photo of my dear grandmother, and very few of my little brother who is no longer with us. Be sure to make it a priority & take pics of special moments…your children will thank you.
