I can't stress enough how importrant photos of your loved ones are; they are the only thing you have left once your loved one is gone.
I grew up with a mum who took a lot of snapshots, and a brother who was into photography as a hobby; and I am so grateful for that. It meant that as an adult, I have so many images of my childhood to look back on, to admire, and to help recall memories of the event.
Which brings me to this; one of my favourite photos.
That is me, my mum and my grandmother.
I know it's a snapshot, and I know it's blurry; but I absolutely cherish this image.
My grandmother passed away when I was three, so fuzzy memories and photos are all I have of her.
My grandfather died before I was born, so photos and stories are the only way I know him.
Live in photos.
For you, your kids, your grandkids, your nieces and nephews, your mum and your dad, your brothers and sisters, your friends, your cousins.
Take snapshots frequently and unapologetically.
Invest in portraits, and invest in your memories.
