The Importance of Portraits

You never know how long you will be here on Earth.  You could live until you are in your 90s or you might only make it to your 50s.  Many of us have little-to-no knowledge of our time here.  

Recently, I had the opportunity to photograph a large family with 7 children and 8 grandchildren.  They realized the importance when they found out their youngest granddaughter only had a short time to live. They didn't waste any time to make sure they have documented some of their memories with her.   They are lucky enough to know they only have a short time, however, I've photographed people and shortly after doing so, tragedy struck.  Unfortunately, on occasion, we don't get that chance to photograph the memories. 

Do not wait until you feel better, look better, lose weight, etc.  DO IT NOW!  NOW is your chance to make memories with your loved ones. Treasure those moments!  Even if you never hire a professional photographer to capture memories, don't hide from the camera.  Let those memories last forever. Your grandchildren and great grandchildren will not worry about how you looked in those photos!  Your time is NOW!
