Why is it Important to Document Your Family Story?

"A photography is a return ticket to a moment otherwise gone.” -Katie Thurmes
Our lives are made up of a million smaller moments that largely reflect the connections with others, especially family. They’re filled with relationships, conversations, and experiences that we desperately want to preserve forever. We know that these times are fleeting, but oh, so very precious!
While you’re truly living in and appreciating each moment, it’s impossible to capture them all. But you can take pictures of the people who make those moments special. And when you see those people – your children, grandchildren, parents, loved ones – as you pass by the frame hanging in the hall or take time to flip through the family album, those sweet times will come flooding back to mind.
If you need more reasons to update your family photos and document your family’s story, here are four more!
A family photo session can be a way to get away from the everyday busyness of life and spend some time together creating new moments together. Let’s get outside, sing some songs, read a book, dance on the beach – whatever makes your heart happy – and take some amazing pictures doing it. Use your session as an opportunity to create some genuine, joy-filled times with your loved ones.
You already know that it’s hard to remember those sweet times as they happened in full color. Taking photos at least once a year is the best way to freeze time and preserve those toothless grins of childhood or the close bonds between your family. They’ll take you back down memory lane every time.
Leave a Legacy
When you take photos together (and turn them into beautiful prints from frames and albums), you create a beautiful gift for your kids and future generations to pass down.
The way they used to giggle uncontrollably. The way their eyes would shine as they jumped in the waves. The warm cuddling moments. Then unshakable bond between siblings. The eager anticipation of a child. These photos capture real people in real moments. I want to capture what makes your family and each member in it so unique!
