IF THERE’S ONE THING WE CAN ALL AGREE ON IT’S THIS:
THIS YEAR CAN BITE US.
We can also agree that even though 2020 has treated us a bit like a tennis shoe in a clothes dryer, there have been some really great things that have emerged. One is we’ve all been forced to slow down and spend more time with family. I know… I know… there have certainly been some rough family days, but this extra time at home with the people we love most has allowed us to develop much deeper connections and some new traditions as well.
Enter family photos. Some might say they don’t even want to think about the idea of family photos right now because they just want to get through this year and forget about it FOR-E-VER.
We would argue that this is actually the perfect year for family photos.
You want to celebrate growing closer as a family and all the goodness that’s come of it. But, these photos don’t have to be what you think. There’s more to memories than traditional family photos! You don’t need stiff smiles and color-coordinated outfits at the park to commemorate this year. 2020 feels like it needs (OR: You deserve something with) more HEART than that. Think about documenting these meaningful newfound pastimes your family has grown to love and lean on during this time.
So, instead of dwelling on the negatives that 2020 has brought, give this year the bird and stamp it with some positive and loving memories of your time together so that when you look back, the positive will outweigh the negative.
Why can’t your family photos be of:
a family game of kickball
Nana’s visit with the grandkids
sidewalk chalk and bubbles
afternoons running through the sprinkler
playing in the yard (yes, it really can be as simple as that!)
morning dress up time
exploring the creek together
