Can we remember these moments without a photograph? Of course.
But while we might remember the feeling of a place or a person, we won’t remember details because time chips away at them and the edges blur and fade.
Eventually these things, these people, become indistinct memories, like looking back on a party where you had too many cocktails.
Pick up a picture and you have the details right in front of you, bringing feelings and memories flooding back.
These pictures are what we pass down to our children and their children.
Family photographs are how our children’s grandchildren will know us. They’re an investment in your family history and grow in value over time, becoming heirlooms and treasures.
They're what you look at every day in your home and and think "actually, everything IS all right. More than all right."
And what's more, did you know that family photographs help enhance your child's self-esteem?
And if you don't think photos are important, wait till they're all you have left.
Stop for a moment and slow down ...
Take yourself back to those moments of love and fun you see immortalised in print, on your walls. Feel a smile soothe your frantically ticking mind and warm your soul.
The peace that comes with seeing beautiful images on your walls and albums created over the years of the people who mean the most to you is absolutely priceless.
