Family and photographs are something that are synonymous. In July my father passed away and my mother in 1999…so all I have left of them is my memories and photographs. My grandma recently turned 99 and I had to share the photos with the world. She is a tiny little thing, under 5 ft. She is full of energy and is very sharp mentally. Every holiday I spend with her and take pictures. It could be her last, or it could be mine, you never know what your path is in life. So even though I am sure she’ll live to 120 years old…I treat each day and each visit with her as a gift.
I always make sure I get a picture with her since I am usually behind the camera too.
Don’t wait until you lose weight or you have a better outfit on. Take family pictures, be in pictures, preserve memories, write them down, and remember them often. Now we need to start planning her BIG 100th celebration!!! I think I’ll hire a photographer for that.
