In our lives there are important days, occasions and achievements that we want to always remember and we want our family and friends to remember these moments too after we are gone. That is why it is so important to take photographs of the good times you want to look back on fondly. You may be reminded of old friends that you haven’t seen in years or an old flame, pictures can invoke many different emotions and remind you of the rich life that you have lived. Here are some of the best reasons to take photographs.
The birth of a child is an extraordinary time in any parent’s life and it is definitely something that you will want to look back on and remember. That is why you should be taking as many baby photos as possible so you can look back at them with your family when they are older and you are probably going to want to hand a few pictures out to family and friends as well.
Of course it goes without saying that you will want to have pictures of your wedding day and you will most likely hire a professional photographer to capture the moments for you but it is also fun to have pictures of the reception to look back so you can see who was there to share your special day with you.
Graduations are another milestone moment in your life or the lives of your children and again there will be a professional photograph taken but having your own pictures of the day often proves to be more special and mean more as all the family can be included in them. You should have your graduation photo hanging up somewhere special to remind you of what you have achieved in your life.
There is nothing more important in the world than family and that is why you should take as many photographs as you can of your family whether you are at home, on holiday or just on a day out it is these times that you will want to look back on in the future. Having a picture of your family close by you when you are at work can put a smile on your face even when you are feeling stressed and that’s why pictures are so important.
If you are part of a sports team or play an individual sport then it is good to keep a record of your achievements. Even if you haven’t won any competitions or leagues you can still look back and remember the fun you had playing a sport that you loved and the friendships you made along the way. Sporting achievements really are one of those things that you can tell your grandchildren about and having pictures will really help you tell the story.
Photographs play an important role in all of our lives. They help us to remember, invoke old feelings and emotions and bring us closer together as we share our memories with others.
