A while ago I read a fantastic blog from Design Aglow - an interview with Rachel LaCour-Niesen, founder of Save Family Photos. It spoke to me, not only as a photographer, but as a daughter, a granddaughter, a wife and a mum. Basically, it spoke to me as a human being. It triggered me to consider my time on this planet; my life and the lives of my loved ones; the story I am creating, and the stories that have already been lived by my family. And the many untold stories, that have yet to be shared or else they will be lost with time.
Photography is such an amazing medium, a way in which we can keep people remembered for future generations. It is important not only to record our own generation, but also to learn the stories behind old family photographs too, and pass these on.
