When the doctor placed the little screaming bundle in your hands for the first time your life perspective shifted immediately. There was nothing more important that the wellbeing of this little human and your family unit. Your baby changed you purpose in life, You are now mum and dad raising a sweet child in this not so sweet world. Your growing child needs to know this. He changed your life and you grew incredible love for him. He has to know he is loved and cherished and wanted. No better way then a beautiful image on the wall he can point to. It is an incredible boost for his self esteem and self identity. Photos you've taken of him will also give him the chance to feel connected with his now and past. What he has been and what he has become.
Memories are powerful. Memories tie us to people, places, and emotions. Preserving these memories for the days when we may not remember, can’t remember, or might just need reminded of can be a beacon of hope for the future. There is so much good in life despite everyday tasks. Let children see that too. Pictures can manifest emotions that words cannot. Children don't remember the moment they were born or many other moments years after that. You want them to see how loved they were from the first step to the 200th spilled glass of milk. You are in this together, celebrating and loving each and every step of the way.
Images are much more than a simple record. Photography speaks to the best and most generous part of our human nature – the desire to show what we find beautiful and interesting. Photos may express what you might not be able to and can build a shield for my child’s individuality. But that shield can not be built by photos hiding away on your computer! You have to get them into your kids hands! Let them look and talk to them about them! You'll be surprised how much laughter and talks you'll have over your image display.
