Paging through the family photo albums keeps our family history alive. The memories that are triggered by these images are central to our identity.
We see resemblances as we compare the generations; “Janet has Aunt Fran’s eyes”, “Jim has Grandpa Frank’s nose”, “Lily loves riding horses just like Great-Aunt Judy did”.
How often do we get a chance to pull out the albums from the closet? Scanners for old photos and digital cameras for new portraits allow us to combine the past and the present into collages and photo books.
In fact, it is possible today to combine text and images, old and new, into beautiful table top books. These books are perfect for favorite family recipes or Grandpa’s hunting stories.
Why not make a permanent record of your family’s legacy. What a wonderful gift for someone who thought they had everything!
