Family Photo Albums is a Treasure Trove to Keep

family photo albumsAs a young child, I used to love looking at my old family photo albums. My mum would sit with me and tell me every story in the album. Most of her stories made me laugh. And many of them gave me a sense of belonging.

Photos in our album were not taken at studios but random snap from family functions or from everyday activities. So you can imagine all the children making faces and even adults just having serious conversations.

It was hilarious! Simply because we connected and talked … and had fun.

These days with all the after school activities, its hard to find time to just connect and simple enjoy each others company.

In our home, our family photo albums take centre stage and together we bond and tell stories from seeing these visuals. And maybe even laugh at each other, unwind and relax.

It builds a sense of belonging to a family unit where we can laugh at our mistakes and not be so serious.

Its also very comforting to know that children feel that sense of belonging and often reminisce family times.

Open communication is encouraged and this builds confidence and self esteem.

I don’t have my old photo albums because these days, I create photobooks.

I often crave for long lasting memories simply because it strengthens my family connections. My children love to look at photos because they feel that sense of love and unity.

Stories that Bind Us as One Family

Memories are precious moments and family photo albums show us these moments. They are a reminder of who we are. It does not have to be a formal yearly tradition of watching video or looking through an album. Just a random simple weekend connection creates a memory that only little children remember. And that makes a huge difference.

Family Photo Albums that spans for many years and when planned accordingly show growth through the years.
