There are times when you most vividly realize that time keeps moving forward and that you cannot ever get time back. You can never go back and capture your baby or child at an earlier age. You can never get back time with loved ones. You can never go back and document special events. Even everyday life changes as time marches forward. It is important to take the time, and make the effort, to get photos of these important life images so that they exist somewhere other than just memories in your mind. Something for children to see their life from before they could remember, and all the times of their lifelong journey. Ways to share the legacy of past generations. Make sure your children have proof that they existed as a child (photographer Sarah Petty says she “didn’t exist” as a child and helped inspire her to be a photographer).
And in this digital age, go beyond photos that live only on your phone or computer….print photos! Put them in frames, create albums, make prints for people to hold and share, display as artwork on your walls. I can’t begin to express how grateful I am for photos and portraits of my parents, grandparents, great-grandparents….from baby photos to 50th anniversary portraits. Not only do they bring joy to you and your loved ones now, as well as in years to come, but they also become treasures for generations.
How impactful is it for children to see photos of themselves and their family prominently displayed in their home?
As a photographer, I will help you document those fleeting moments in time, and work directly with you to select images, and create artwork to enjoy and share.
