As some of you may already know, this will be my first fathers day. Secretly, I’ve been looking forward to this day since the day my daughter was born to be honest! Having a child and seeing how quickly they grow and change has certainly re-enforced the importance of having a professional portrait taken. Over the years, I’ve had a few clients who made a point of coming in and updating their family portrait. We don’t see ourselves changing from year to year, but when you stop and look back at photographs, you soon see that we do change. So all of a sudden, updating the family portrait doesn’t seem like a bad idea after all. But I don’t look at it as updating the portrait. To me, having your portrait taken is more like capturing a moment in time. Freezing the present so to speak. Think of it like this. How many of us have one family portrait that was taken when you were in primary school? (I can almost see you smirking as you read that) Problem is, our parents did that just once and never had it done again. So between the age of about seven and when you then go and have another one done with your own children and family, there is no professional portrait of yourself. The people who have been coming in every year and capturing a new moment and time in their lives in effect are recording their history. Now we all have bills…do they ever stop?? So we spend money on “essential” items, like a phone bill for instance and we tend to forget the important things in our lives, which is how fast our family is growing up! Hmmm…starting to sound a bit familiar isn’t it? So, back to why I started writing this blog. Fathers day is just around the corner and this year, being that it’s my first one, I’m going to celebrate it by having my first ever Fathers Day promotion. The promotion is being launched in the next few days, so keep an eye out on here and on my Facebook page to see all the details.
