Family Photos And Their Impact On Your Children

Did you know that having family photos around your home can have a dramatic impact on your child's self-esteem? This study, first published in 1975, took a deep look into the lives of children and how they were affected by seeing photos of themselves on the walls. The findings are fascinating and should be considered when decorating your home.

We have all seen abstract pictures that catch our eye, or that fit our design-style, but will they have the same type of lasting impact for your loved ones as a family photo? The research says otherwise.

In this day and age, it is so easy to take photos with phones that double as good quality cameras. The problem is those photos typically stay on our phones and never get printed. Our "walls" on social media display more of our family than the actual walls in our homes.

The other issue with phone photos? Someone from your family is likely taking the image - meaning they are not pictured. This tends to happen a lot with moms. Moms want to document amazing memories and fun-filled days and often end up on the wrong side of the lens.

Family photo sessions with a professional photographer will not only give you a beautiful product, but also ensures that all family members are pictured. Choose a meaningful location or a spot where you love the scenery and get those photos taken! Be sure to include the family dog, an heirloom you love, or even some fun props to add a little something special to your images.

When was the last time you had family photos taken?
