Do you have a favorite story from your childhood? I do. My mom used to tell us the story of “The Princess and the Glass Hill”. I loved listening to her make the images come alive in my head. I remember feeling fear, excitement, and joy as the story unfolded. Stories create strong emotions and connections.

A well-told story can capture the audience and transport them to the place and time of the event. But not everyone is good at storytelling. That’s where photography can be a big help. Storytellers often use pictures to describe their stories, but it’s even better when we let the photos tell the stories. Don’t you just love going to someone’s home and seeing the family pictures displayed? They tell the story of that family and connect you to their life. 

You may see them enjoying an outdoor adventure or laughing together around a table. Photos on the walls show the children at different stages of their lives. They often include activities the family enjoys, such as sports, travel, or socializing.

The photos display the love and affection a family has for one another. Our choice of photography reveals what is important in our lives. My sister’s stairway wall is filled with wedding pictures from grandparents, parents, and now daughters. It is her way of showing them honor and love. 

Recently my daughter helped me to sort 10 years’ worth of family photos. It took much longer than expected because every picture brought out another story from our family history. I wish I had enough wall space to hang all those precious photos.
