I love photos so much, I always have.
I have albums of photos from my teenage years long before everyone was into oversharing.
I much prefer real photos rather than professional portrait shots.
Photos say so much.
Last year for Tom's 4th Birthday I decided to make him a photo book.
A book about him.
A book about love.
I used Target Photos to produce the book on line. I searched through my files of photos and collected a group of photos of Thomas with people that love him.
If I didn't have a nice photo of him with someone important (e.g. Grandparent) I set out to get one.
I loaded up the photos and added some text.
I want the text to be all about him. Why do we love him? What does he do, what does he say?
It was not difficult, at the most it was time. But I had all the time in the world for such a special task.
He loved his book.
It's currently high up on the shelf, out of reach of little hands.
I think it's important to continually show our children that we love them, finding ways other than simply telling them. I hope that they will grow feeling comfortable in their expression also.
What do you do to show your children you love them?
