Family pictures are the greatest, aren’t they not? I personally love mine. I try to get shots of us whenever I can. Be it during a special occasion or even in the midst of our daily routines. It annoys the heck out of my husband, but I try to never miss a day without getting all or even a part of my family on camera. Most of the time, I find the challenge to pull out my real camera and turn to the one on my phone. It’s not as great, but it serves the purpose - which is to remember. One day, when I’m old and when my memory would have failed me and I won’t remember the little details anymore, I would pull out the pictures on my phone and I’ll remember again. That’s just one reason why I do this. Here are some other reasons why I will never stop taking pictures of my family:
I want to remember our journey. I imagine that when I’m old I will only see the end result of my parenting. I take pictures so I can remember the things we went through. I want to look back on those frames and see how far we’ve come. I want to look back and be grateful.
I want my children to remember how beautiful they are. Bad memories have a way of sticking to us more than the good ones. We don’t take pictures of the bad. We take pictures of the good ones, the ones I want my children to remember. I want them to look back on their childhood and see the beauty I see in them.
