I found these three classics in an album my folks had put together of portraits when I was a kid. I guess these are about age two, five and twelve. While we have tons of snapshots and slides taken over the years, the professional portraits of everyone in the family are the biggest show-stoppers.
Throwback Thursday gives you a chance every week to pull an image from your personal archives, whether it's an image you might have captured for a client years ago or an old image of you or your kids. It's a terrific way to remind your customers that it's time for an updated family portrait!
The bad news is time flies. The good news is you're the pilot!
