Why family photos are awesome!!!

I love photographs. Just as well I decided to be a photographer, isn’t it?

Images connect us to our past. They inspire us and show us who we are and where we came from, so not lots of words on this post…but maybe a few of tears.

This is the start of a personal project for me. My mum has asked me to collect all the family photos and scan them in to make them available to everyone in the family. I’m really looking forward to it, because it lets me learn about some amazing people that I never got a chance to meet.

People like my great grandfather, my gran’s father.

He lied to the army so he could sign up for the First War. His is him on his horse when he was between 14-18 years old.

Printing photographs might not seem so important in these days of camera phones and digital files, but they are. Especially because it’s a lot easier to lose digital files than actual prints. Framed family portraits are beautiful things that you will keep forever, so don’t delay, time stops for no one. Do something special for you mum on mother’s day.

It doesn’t have to be with me, but get some beautiful family portraits done. I guarantee you won’t regret it.
