To document growth When children are younger, taking a family portrait each year is a good way to document each child's progress as they grow up. As children grow up, they find their own lives and move away. The days when the whole family was just a few miles apart are long gone. Family photos, or portraits, have that same power.
They take us back in time. They are a good way to remember. They are also part of our legacy. In years to come, grandchildren and great-grandchildren may someday ask to see family photos, and wouldn't it be sad if there were few or none to share? Having the photos brings the family together again as they look back on their lives.
Children seem to be growing up faster than ever. Family portraits are a great way to document the progress of their growth, seeing how they change from year to year. Plus, remembering the trends and styles of the past is sure to make us laugh for years to come. Photos, like memories and stories, are part of our legacy.
We hold them close and pass them on. It is a gift to be able to share a picture of moments, details, people, places and things with our loved ones, so that they too can feel even a hint of the joy we feel when we remember those moments. I certainly hope this is the case for the family of artist Allison Reimus. They recently moved from Chicago to New York.
And I have to say that their family lifestyle session I did for them is PURE GOLD. Every year, you grow as a person, and so do your family members. Having annual family photos captured can show the progress you've made in life. After all, as we see ourselves evolve each year, it can be all too easy to forget the characteristics we possessed in younger times of our lives.
Today, families increasingly view their images exclusively in digital format, whether on a mobile device, laptop or social media. When children are younger, taking a family portrait each year is a great way to document each child's progress as they grow up. Families grow and change for reasons such as marriage, birth, the passing of loved ones and the relocation of others to faraway places. If you are like most people, you have thought about family portrait photography but it hasn't happened.
These photos have a lot of value and memories attached to them, but they simply cannot replace the value of a professional family portrait. With photography being such a powerful tool in the world today, you have the opportunity to capture beautiful family portraits, and to relive them all through your future. Maybe someone who is going to be enlisted into national service and wants to have the family portrait done before the guy goes botak. After the session, my clients choose from a variety of boutique products to preserve their photographs and display those family portraits in their homes.
