What's really important

Hi everyone, I'm sorry but I have to jump back on my soap box and talk about something that I feel is so important. It seems to me that this generation has become disconnected to life. I really believe technology is the culprit. We hardly talk to each other, we text or message. We put what's going on in our lives on fb etc. I've found in my portrait business that family is taking a back seat in our busy lives. This is sad to me. It really hit home when I thought about the fact that my parents both have passed, now my Aunts and Uncles. I know how important capturing these memories are but neglected making it happen for me and my family. Now I'm on a mission. Think about it.. It's too late for my Mom and Dad and me, but hopefully it's not too late for you. If you can't afford to go to a professional to capture these memories, photograph them yourself. Don't just leave them in your computer or hard drive, print hard copies. Send them to a good lab, don't just print them on your home printer (these images will not last, I promise you). When you have an actual print your memories won't be lost to you. Also make sure you archive your images to a dvd on top of storing them on an external hard drive. So important.

Hey, I love your pictures, especially the ones of your sister. My mother died 7 years ago after 10 years fighting. I wish her much luck. I always had the feeling, that medicine and doctors made it even worse! A friend of mine left hospital instead of her supposed therapy and she is still healthy.
Thanks for your impressions!
