Cherished Memories.

Summer of 2015

School is right around the corner. My daughter will be entering the 10th grade. Only three more years left in high school. Wow, time flies. I swear she was just entering kindergarten.

My son is entering middle school! My little guy will be in his first year of the gifted program and entering in robotics.

Only a little while ago he was running around playing with super hero toys and pretending to be Spider man. It has gone by in a blink of an eye.

I wished I would have started my photography when they were younger. Or at least gotten professional portraits done at least every couple of years.  However, I took pictures often with a my own little point and shoot. After 2008 I started using my phone. 

I think everyone should take pictures with whatever they have. I also think getting good quality portraits done is important, too.  I'm not saying this because I am a photographer and I am trying to convince people to book. No, I'm saying this because I look at my photo albums and most of the pictures are a little out of focus, grainy, and not good for large prints.  Some aren't as vibrant as they once were because I got them printed at the local drug store.  

The important thing I have to ask myself is do I cherish them? HECK YES I DO! These are my memories. The blurry, the grainy, the sharp and the clear. All of them are memories I get to pass down.  Take your pictures. Print them! Also remember to budget for some professional pictures as well. A professional session every couple of years would give you a solid album of high quality photos to look back on for years to come.  If a chain studio is more your style by all means, do it! If a custom experience is something you want, there are plenty of photographers in your area that can provide that, too.
