The importance of photographs

July 20, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

Should you have a professional photo of your family? It is a wonderful way of capturing children as they grow but there is a more compelling reason. I have taken a number of photographs that have later been the cherished image of a person that has died.  It is hard to put a value on such an item when it becomes almost a representation of that person to family and loved ones.  I have shot a number of family photos that included an image of a family member that has died.  Being aware of this has certainly added heightened responsibility when shooting portraits. It was interesting to see the issue raised in an Allison Monkhouse ad as it is often at funerals that the value of the photo of the deceased is first realised. Have you a photo you would like to remember your family by?
