Many people see family portraits as trivial, but what if they had an IMPACT on your child's self-esteem?
Giving Children a Sense of Self
An aspect of family photography that many do not realize is that it can help our children have a more connected sense of self, better confidence, and a stronger family bond. Research has shown that family portraits help children understand family as a unit. Further, they can better understand their value and significance within that unit. Seeing family photos helps the child understand that they are a valued part of the family. It shows children who they are, where they come from, and how they fit into the family.
Physical Evidence of a Photo
As important as it is to take family pictures, it is just as important to display them. Today's generation of children is the most photographed of all time. However, they have the least amount of physical photo evidence of that. So many people capture their pictures digitally and don't do anything else with them. They don't consider the impact that seeing and touching the actual photo print can make on the child and the family at large. Seeing that printed photo can immediately transport you back in time to that happy memory or place. Children that grow up surrounded by family photos and memories have a deeper sense of who they are and where they come from, a more solid sense of belonging, that leads to more confidence as they grow.
