I think I talk about this at LEAST once a week with family, friends, clients and sometimes complete strangers. It’s partly the reason why I’m a photographer and believe in the power of photography.

Getting portraits of yourself shouldn’t just happen on your wedding day.

If you hate getting your photo taken then do it for your children’s, family, friends and spouses sake. HECK just do it for you!!!

Just remember besides someone’s own memories the only physical sight of you after you pass is in photos.

You are worth it!
