First Family Photos: Create Lasting Memories

There’s nothing like that first family photo with a precious new family member. New parents are so excited to get  that perfect shot, showcasing their new bundle of joy.

I remember taking our baby to the photo studio for our first family portrait. It took hours to find the right outfits to wear. After much effort to feed and dress the baby, we finally made it out the door. By the time we got to the studio, we had to start the whole feeding and changing process all over again!

This is why I have come to appreciate the effort involved in taking that first family photo.

Recently, the Royal Family released their first family photos of the Duke, Duchess, and Prince of Cambridge. They were taken by the Duchess' father, Michael Middleton, in their family garden earlier this month. There is one image of the Duke, Duchess and baby George together, and another that includes their two family pets, Tilly and Lupo.

Relaxed and natural, everyone can see  their absolute happiness as a new family. This is a great example what a first family photo should look like.

We look forward to seeing more family photos of the Royal Family and  Prince George at his upcoming christening  at the end of October.

Do you have a first family photo? What is it like?

Nostalgia: Old family photographs

A few years ago, my grandmother gave me a shoebox filled with some of her mother’s heirlooms and photos. I looked through it briefly, but had then forgotten about it until last month.

My grandmother had told me stories about her childhood, but these photo discoveries really brought my family history to life. I finally got to put faces to those stories I had heard over the past few years, and to see my family heritage displayed in front of me.

I moved last month. Although moving can be stressful, I was in for a surprise when I discovered a box filled with family treasures at the back of a closet.

Last week I sat with my grandmother and together we looked through these family memories. As we viewed each photo and heirloom, she began to tell stories she hadn't mentioned before about the people and events in each picture. Continue reading "Nostalgia: Old family photographs" »
