The value of a photograph - Saskatoon photographers

I saw a quote a month or two ago and it said...

"You never really know the value of a photograph until long after it's taken."

This sits with me on so many levels. Not only do I think about this all the time with my sessions, it hits so close to home with my personal photos.  This is the reason I get my family photos done every year.  This is a shot of my girl and I, a few years ago, at our annual family session.  I love the wrinkle in her nose, and me looking adoringly at her.  I know when she gets to my age, she is going to cherish this photo even more than I do today.  She's not going to see my double chin, or my wrinkles, or my crooked nose.  She's going to see the connection between her and I, and how stinkin' adorable she is.  She might even see her own kids in her squinty smile, and laugh at how ugly my jacket is.  What I do know, is she will look back at this photo, long after I'm gone and it will be worth so much more in years to come, than it was the day it was taken.
