Granddaughters’ Christmas Photo Shoot

“With the click of a shutter I am able to freeze a moment in time, preserve a family’s history & ensure future generations will come to know their ancestors.” ~ Beth Forester

Ms. Forester’s quotation aptly characterizes my “Days to Remember” photo journal blog.  As written in the introduction, it is my desire to capture a moment in time and place, preserving it, so that I might share a particular slice of time with others through my photographs and words.  This quotation also characterizes my zeal to photograph our family members and friends, whenever we get together.  I am a prolific photographer, both in taking and in printing pictures.   I feel that a hard copy picture is more valuable than one uploaded online. Who knows where the pictures that have been uploaded online will be 5, 10 or more years from now.  If some catastrophe happened to my hard copy pictures, I would want it to be possible to obtain printed copies once again.  This is why I feel it is important to store digital copies of images on storage devices, such as DVDs and external hard drives.

I photograph our twin granddaughters A LOT!  Since their birth in May 2012, it is a rare month that I have not taken at least one picture of the girls.  My granddaughters’ progeny WILL know their ancestors!

This past Sunday afternoon Bob and I went to Stacey’s mother and stepfather’s home to take pictures of Harper and June in front of their Christmas tree.  Both girls had not had their naps and were tired; however, the girls did cooperate most of the time during the photo session.  The photographs that follow are some of my favorite ones from that photo session.

Both Harper and June enjoy books.

June

I love their smiles and laughter.

What a treasure these girls are!  I love my granddaughters with all my heart.
