If you’re a parent, imagine your child for a moment. You’re probably imagining your child as they are right now. Perhaps you don’t have to “imagine”, maybe you can turn your head and look right at your young one!
Now, imagine your child when they’re grown up. She (for the sake of this writing) is living on her own and has an awesome life and a cool apartment with cool things. She has photos in her apartment – lots of fun photos of friends on the fridge and bulletin board. They showcase her fun lifestyle and her abundance of friends and the awesome times they’ve shared.
In other places she has photos of you…. of you and she together from her childhood. They are beautiful photos she keeps in her bedroom because they are near and dear to her heart. Her favorite one is of she as a toddler. It is black and white, she keeps it in a silver frame. You and your daughter are looking at each other and smiling.
She doesn’t remember this early time in her life, but she has this photo. And just by looking at the photo and your expression, she knows she was always loved.
This is just to say – Parents, please consider being in front of the camera with your kids – it may produce a photo that your child with treasure.
