Contest | ENTER TO WIN : Why are family photos important to you?

I love the holidays; it’s that giving time of year. So let’s give away two Subscription Sessions with framed prints! With a little friendly competition mixed in for good measure.

So What’s This All About

As I reflect back on the year, I am grateful for the opportunities to collaborate with families on building their photo legacy. I am reminded how much I treasure the few photos from grandparents of generations past, most of whom I never had the privilege of knowing. These photo relics inform who I am by providing a glimpse into the minds and experiences of those who came before me. I think about this a lot when making images with clients – in getting to know who I am photographing, what we document, how the images will be preserved, and the ways in which the images will connect generations.

We have all heard the hypothetical question, “If your house was on fire, other than family and pets, what would you grab before running out the door?” More often than not, the answer is family photos. We have seen folks, after a natural disaster, sifting through rubble for scraps of photo albums. Why is that? Photographs connect us with those we love and have lost, formative experiences, important relationships, and periods of growth. But the specifics of why these connections are meaningful is unique to each of us. That is what I want to hear from you; why are family photos important to YOU?
