Photographs are Powerful

I believe photos are powerful, tying our past to our future.

Nothing brings a family together like looking through photo albums together, sharing the stories behind the images, reminiscing about times gone by, and celebrating the people in the pictures.

Psychologists have identified that family photographs help children see themselves as a valued part of a family unit. Even solo images can make someone feel important, worthy of love and existence. Photographs also provide a tie to the past for our older family members, providing a reminder of the value of their life, love, and accomplishments. Sharing stories from old to young also creates the connection of shared history for all ages. Seeing images of family members from times gone by helps show the continuity of past to present.

The best place to share these images? On the wall, where they can be passively seen every day, silent reminders of a person’s value (rather than hiding away on one person’s device). Second best? Printed and kept where the image can be physically touched, which provides a connection that cannot be created with a digital image.


Ready for some great photographs? Let’s get to know each other over coffee (or smoothies… or milkshakes…), and talk about celebrating your life’s true beauty in images you love.

My Promise: Together, we will create amazing photos you’ll want to share. How do you want to be photographed?
