Some of my favorite memories as a child are the holiday breaks from school. What kid doesn’t love getting to spend a few extra days home with family? I used to remember falling asleep to the sounds of people talking and playing games at the dining room table. Now that I am grown and have kids of my own, I try and remember that it is my responsibility not only to help create the memories but to document them as well.
I would challenge all parents, aunts, uncles, grandparents everywhere to make a pledge to take 5 pictures a day. It isn’t much but what many people find is that after a great day of spending it with family they find they forgot the camera, or decided it was too much of a hassle. I promise you this, if you take that extra 2 minutes to find your camera and photograph your life you will not regret it; but if you put if off and think “oh I will take more pictures tomorrow” that will become habit and you will regret it later.
One rarely regrets a photograph taken – Many people regret the photograph never taken.
Visual Impressions wishes everyone a happy Thanksgiving. Spend it with those you love and make memories.
