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.
