Portraits are so important
Last year, my grandparents got sick. They were both rushed to the hospital with pneumonia, my grandfather died peacefully that night. We were all afraid my grandmother would, too, and I realized then that she might not be around for very much longer. I talked to my mom about doing a photoshoot with her. So, on a random Wednesday, I took all of my equipment and my aunt, my mom, Jack and I took some photos with her at her nursing home. She died three months later. Now we have beautiful, touching photos with her that we can treasure forever.
We used these photographs of her for her funeral. I’m not sure what we would have used if we didn’t have these. Maybe something from when she was young. But those photos don’t tell her whole story. They can’t explain her 94 years of the love she felt, the heart ache she suffered; her whole life. Old photographs couldn’t have show the love she had for her great-grandson. Maybe she might not have appreciated the few extra pounds she had or the wrinkles, but I do.
