Don't Let the Opportunity Pass You By
When you are a kid, pictures with your parents are inevitable. They are around you all the time and even a simple get together can bring the opportunity for a candid snap of you hugging your mother or talking with your father. As you walk your way into adulthood and have your own family or move away to pursue your life, those candid shots become fewer, and sometimes just stop. Then one day, you are thinking back, realizing that you do not have any photographs of you as an adult with your parents.
With Father's Day approaching, and Mother's Day just a few weeks past, I started to muse about those precious photographs of children with their parents and realized that I have very few. I have photographs of them, of them with the grandkids, but I want some photographs to put on the family wall to remember them as they are now.
I am not the biggest fan of having my photograph taken, silly, I know, and for the most part, I do not exist in the captured history of my family. I think memories need a little help sometimes, and photographs are a great way to give them a boost. In that vein, my goal in the next few months is to take portraits with my parents. Maybe I'll let the grandkids join in on a few.
If this sounds like a good idea, but you need some help in the photography department, contact me and book a portrait appointment. I would love to help you capture this memory.
