And Just Like That 3 Years passed By…
Yes, it has been 3 whole years since our last professional family photo session. Why? Because my family is just like yours. We get busy and forget how long it has been since we captured our family in a portrait.
I am always telling my clients about the importance of getting in front of the camera. As a mother myself, I can totally relate with mommies when they just do not want to take a picture. Whether it is because they aren’t feeling well or just don’t like the look of themselves in pictures most mommies are not fond of having their picture made. I feel their pain, after all I am a mother too.
So on this day I took my own advice and put aside the negative feelings about my weight, appearance, and overall self esteem in pictures. I remembered these pictures are not for me. No, but they are for my children and my grandchildren. I stepped in front of the camera to seal my family legacy. A legacy to continue for generations to come. When my child wants to remember her childhood in photographs, these beautiful family pictures will be there for her.
So let’s put aside our doubts and self esteem issues and remember the reason we are having pictures made. We want to give something to our children in years to come. An intangible and priceless portrait of the love we all had for one another. And it is captured at this very moment in our lives.
