Family memories.

Before the kids came along, my husband and I did not take very many photos together.  Now, I regret that. There aren't very many photos of us to look back on and even now, a lot of the photos are of the kids or the kids with one parent... where am I going with this?
 

The importance of family photos. 
 

I've made a vow that once a year we will take family photos? Why is it so important? Memories, preserving the moment, being able to look back and say "I remember when".  I want my girls to have those old photos when I'm gone (not trying to be morbid here). Those photos of mom who is usually behind the camera hugging them tight. The photos where the love that reigns supreme is seen behind the smiles. Even if you don't have children, it's wonderful to have the years of change documented, even if its with a selfie stick or a tripod and a remote, or you hand your camera to a bystander and ask them to take the shot for you. Remember to take a moment to document where you are in this season of your life. Time passes by just as the seasons, too quickly and ever-changing.
