Our world and our lives can feel exceptionally fast-paced compared to the lives of our parents and grandparents when they were our age. We have so many roles to play these days – parent, employee or boss, housekeeper, friend, and chauffeur for busy children who seem to have never-ending extracurricular activities.
With so much to pack into your schedule, it can feel like your day flew by with little time to do anything extra. The years come and go much more quickly than you imagine they will when you first bring your baby home from the hospital. But your children are proof of how fast time is passing – they can look different every week. Before you know it, they’re reaching major milestones – their first day of school, their first double-digit birthday, or passing you up in height.
Suddenly, you might realize that you haven’t taken nearly enough pictures of your children or of the entire family. Maybe you’ve missed those adorable photos when your child didn’t have their front teeth anymore or when they went through their awkward smile phase. It’s not too late to start documenting more of their days with pictures or taking more pictures of you as a family unit – 2023 could be your year to finally start taking more pictures.
Every photo is a meaningful keepsake, regardless of whether it is taken at home or at a professional photo session. As long as you’re taking photos on a regular basis, you can capture every moment, both big and small.
Here are a few ways to ensure you take more photos in 2023.
It can be easy to get sidetracked with your never-ending to-do list, but you should always keep in the back of your mind that moments are fleeting. Make sure you’re making the most of your family time by taking pictures, living in the moment, and enjoying each other’s company.
