Parents who miss their children or those who are reluctant to see their grown-up children leave their nest can only wish that they could turn back the time to when the children were still little. Even with modern technology, man still hasn’t found a way to travel through time. However, there is a way for us to freeze time and go back to it anytime we wish. Photographs and memories allow us to capture special moments with our loved ones and keep it alive in our hearts.
People decide to stop taking pictures or fail to have their portraits taken for different reasons, but picture taking isn’t something that we should take for granted. There may come a time when our memory fails us and the only thing that we can hold on to is the image of our past. A year without a photograph is like a year gone missing in our memory lane. As parents, having your kid’s portrait done every year is an investment in the future joys that it will bring for the family. The children may not appreciate their photographs during the awkward stages of their teens but this will change when they start having their own kids. Photos that show a person’s transformation from childhood to adulthood are also great materials for presentations on weddings, commemorative events and other special occasions.
