Hidden Treasures

A while back, my mom and I were going through some boxes in the closet and we came across the best hidden treasure ever. We found a photo book from my mom's fifth birthday.  For all my life, I've heard stories about my mom's favorite place as a kid, my great-grandparent's cabin in Minnesota, but I had never seen a single photo of it until now.  This book contains photos of (much younger versions of) my grandma, who passed away a few years ago, and many family members who I love so very much.  It's a glimpse into a past that I've only heard about.

And because of that, this is nothing short of a treasure.

And this is such a great example of why I believe in the power of photography.  It's magic.  And that's why I love ordering beautiful, high quality Photo Books for my clients.  Printed photos are sadly not very common any more, but I hope that 50 years from now, their grandchildren will find those books, and get a little glimpse into this part of life.
