Why Have Photos Taken?
As a person who is quite shy in front of the camera… I get it. Why do you think I chose a profession behind the camera? But consider this. Photos are our memories, our legacy, our story. They are a record of how we looked, how we lived, how we loved.
Have you ever discovered a box of old photos underneath your Mom’s bed and spent hours looking through them? Did you revel in how beautiful your mother was when she was younger and how much you look like her at that age? Or how handsome your dad was and how your son has his eyes? Did you find photos of yourself at different stages of childhood… when you were a chubby baby or when you were that rebellious teenager with the weird hair? Who would ever want to forget that?? Now imagine if your mother never kept those photos. You would never get to experience the story they tell or see the history your family holds.
Life is happening… it is happening right now and the only moment we are guaranteed is the one we are living. I shudder at the thought of leaving behind no pictures of my life with ME in it. So if you are contemplating whether or not to have your photos professionally taken please consider this. Don’t wait until you lose 10 pounds, YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL NOW JUST THE WAY YOU ARE! Don’t miss out on capturing your baby’s rosy cheeks and luscious curls as they are at this age. Your family, friends and children love you and want to see your lovely faces both in person and in photographs. Leave your legacy. Current and future generations will appreciate it!
