Your parents and grandparents won't be around forever.
It's a hard pill to swallow, I know. Just thinking about it gives me a pit in my stomach. I'll never be ready for that day, no matter much I prepare for it. As I've personally watched my parents and grandparents grow older and older, I've become more passionate about documenting their lives and stories. I mean, there's nothing I love more than hearing "When I was your age..."
As I've done it for not only my own grandparents, but for WWII veterans, Rosie the Riveters, and Holocaust survivors... I truly believe, deep down in my soul, that everyone has a great story to tell. Which is why I'd love to help YOU preserve your family's EPIC legacies.
Golden year portraits are the coolest, because it makes them feel heard, loved and special.... all the things they so desperately deserve, especially in their golden years. And not only that... but it's also an amazing gift to you and your future family.
Because someday, when they've passed on and that hole in your heart makes you miss them so damn much it's hard to breathe, wishing you could call them up to chat one last time... you'll have these - portraits to remember every little wrinkle. You'll have the interview to hear their voice. So all those stories you've heard a million times don't become a distant memory. And someday, when your children have children, and they're asking you about your parents and grandparents... you can show them these. So they can love and know your parents and grandparents like you did.
Here's the deal... if 2020s taught us anything, it's that life is fleeting. So don't wait to document the incredible lives your your parents and grandparent's have lived. Choose to do it now. I promise you... you'll thank yourself for it later down the road!
