Don't forget the grandparents

You may have seen this image from me in the past, but I wanted to post it again. I originally took this photo of my grandfather with his first great grandchild together because I wanted to show the importance of printing instead of images all being digital and on cds. The message was to print photos to be able to pass them down to the next generation. Now I see a different message from this portrait, the importance of taking photos together. This is the only image I have of my grandfather with my son that wasn't taken with a phone, about 6 months later we lost my grandfather suddenly as his cancer rapidly spread. When I look at this portrait, which I do have printed and hanging in my living room, it reminds me that existing in photographs is important.

The last photos I have with my grandfather are at my wedding, 3 whole years before we lost him.  Since losing him, I have made an effort to take more photos with my kids and family.

When is the last time you had a family portrait taken? I had this portrait taken by Erica Colvin Photography the week after we welcomed Kairi into our family in April.
