“If you don’t think photos are important, wait until they’re all you have left.”
Sometimes spending the time to hire someone and organize a photo session can seem overwhelming and not worth it. However, when you choose to go so long without photos and you’re finally trying to look back and reminisce, you’ll wish you had more photos of your kids when they were young.
Don’t let life pass and look back, wondering why you didn’t take the time to have family pictures taken. Don’t make excuses or put it off any longer. You can’t go back in time for a redo, so avoid setting yourself up for an “I wish” situation.
If you’ve been thinking about having a family portrait taken, do it. Do it for your children. Your children won’t notice the grey hair, a few extra pounds, or for matter anything else, but we guarantee they will be disappointed when they are older and there are no family photos to share with their children.
Family pictures, or portraits have that same power. They bring us back in time. They’re a great way to reminisce. They are also a part of our legacy. In years to come, children may someday ask to see pictures of the family, and wouldn’t it just be sad if there were few or none to share?
“To me there is no picture so beautiful as smiling, bright-eyed, happy children; no music so sweet as their clear and ringing laughter."
Do they know that even the smallest moments like this create the biggest memories?
“The greatest legacy we can leave our children is happy memories.”
When children are younger, having a portrait of the family done each year is a great way to document the progress each of them is making as they grow.
