Life is busy, day-to-day life can be manic. A week passes, then a month, a year and in what seems like the blink of an eye, a whole year has passed. Before you know it, your little ones aren’t so little anymore.
I urge you to hit the pause button and take time out to capture those moments before they are gone forever.
I’ve no doubt in this digital age you have plenty of pictures of your loved ones, probably digital files stored on your phone or in the cloud. But what about something more tactile, something more permanent to make sure those memories are captured and preserved in all their glory.
Photographs in their true form have meaning. The same meaning, they once did when photography was film-based as opposed to digital (Yes, I do remember winding a new roll of film into the camera). They are tangible prints that have been intentionally made to commemorate a beautiful and important person, a time and age in life, or a special moment that although has passed was so wonderful and worth documenting.
A photograph is a pause button on life
When you invest in a portrait session with those you love, you are making an intentional choice to preserve memories in the most beautiful, artistic way. It’s more than ‘a few quick photographs and digitals. It’s something you can hold and cherish forever.
The benefit of having family portraits doesn’t stop there, studies have shown photographs on display in the family home can increase your children’s self-esteem as it acts as a daily reminder that they are loved, they are important and that they belong.
