I want to talk about the importance of and how we have forgotten about, Family Portraits and photo albums. In the years before the prevalence of smartphones and the ability to take and store photos on your phone, almost everyone had a family photo album. The albums were great because you could always pick them up and look back through the years to see a families history as it was captured in photos. I know I learned a lot about my family by looking at the photo albums we had and asking a bunch of questions. It also answered a few questions on its own.They were keepsakes that were cherished and proudly displayed. Today most people's pictures are on their phone, not backed up, and susceptible to loss if your phone to crashes. Even if that doesn't happen, they're still on your phone where only you can see them.
That might be okay but just imagine being able to share them anytime with friends or family without giving up your phone, or by having an album, or pictures hanging on your wall. I guess what I'm trying to say here is that a professional photographer will do that for you. Special times, special moments can all be captured and presented for everyone to enjoy. Question, how many times have you promised yourself that you are going to print that picture and haven’t? Lastly, when was the last time you gathered for family pictures? My guess would be it was a long time ago.
