Families are so important to photograph for numerous reasons. Children develop and grow up so fast even in just one short year that I’m always amazed at how much taller they are or that they are walking now and talking up a storm. Sometimes there are new bundles of joy in the family or one on the way and sadly sometimes older members of the family are no longer with us. It’s the circle of life but I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been told by clients how glad they are that they took the time to take the photos for those very same reasons. A picture is worth a thousand words.
