But as for you, continue in what you have learned and have firmly believed, knowing from whom you learned it and how from childhood you have been acquainted with the sacred writings, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be competent, equipped for every good work. -2 Timothy 3:14-17
One of the main reasons for photography is to preserve memories and moments that we will never get back. The most important thing about family photos is that they were taken. Photos are a priceless tool and mini time machine. It allows us to, for a brief moment, go back in time and laugh about the "good ole days" or about how silly our style was or how cool our cars were. It opens the door to conversations and stories that may have never been told. Don't put off family photos. You never know what life will hand you. Capture the memories along the way. These photos are not take for your own personal use as much as for future generations.
