This beautiful lady contacted me a while ago and said she had never, ever had a family photo session and she thought it was time. She rounded up her clan and we headed out into the river for a truly awesome photo session. This family shares so much laughter and fun. They love each other deeply and it is very plain to see.
Why do we have this idea that we only want to take photographs of our young children? What about photographs of our adult children? Photographs are not just to remember what our children were like when they were small, they also capture the connections, the love, the shared moments, the special bonds between the members of our family no matter how old they are.
Just a few weeks ago my father-in-law was killed in a freak accident on his farm. The moment we were told we literally couldn’t breathe. One of the first things we did together as an extended family was to search out the boxes of family photos, comb through Facebook and our phones for photos of him and us with him. And we realised something sad though. Yes we do have loads of photographs of him but not all of us together and we don’t have photos of him with all his grandchildren. And most of the photographs are horrible, blurred, grainy and not printable at all.
Don’t let that happen to you and your family. When something happens you will treasure those special moments captured on camera that you can print out, put on the wall and remember the good times together.
A true testament to any dad is when he teaches his boys how to treat a woman. This dad has got it right. His boys adore their mum and treat her with such respect and kindness. They never let her say a bad word about herself and constantly tell her she is great.
I hope you have a wonderful day and don’t forget to love and appreciate those who make your life complete.
