Ah, summer...a time for family barbecues, family picnics, family reunions, family vacations, and family photographs a plenty! Unfortunately, the family photograph often gets a bad rap. We all have the uncle who tries to get everyone together for one last picture while everyone is trying to pack up and go home. Or maybe it's mom and her incessant display of family photographs wherever you look.
So maybe you'd prefer to display a landscape or a picture of downtown street graffiti. We don't think anyone would blame you. The tranquil moments of a sunset captured in a photograph have a way of defining a room. The images we display in our home, office, or wherever else they may be found have a way of speaking to us. But more than that, they have a way of communicating to others who we are. Rarely do you see a picture of a mundane road, a muddy pond, or a pointless pile of rubbage. Our photographs are beautiful, captivating, interesting, and usually unique in some form or another.
While artistic photographs should have a place on your walls and the surfaces of your house, studies have shown that family photographs can play an important role in a home. The following are 4 benefits of displaying family photography.
1. Family photography reinforces the family dynamic (especially in the lives of children and teenagers).
2. Family photography subconsciously establishes family priority.
3. Family photography helps create a healthy familial perspective (especially when conflict arises in the family).
4. Family photography helps preserve family memories.
So next time uncle Ted yells, "Just one more picture before everyone leaves!" remember that this moment could create more than an annoyance. And while you're at it, take your most recent family photograph and turn it into a beautiful piece of wooden wall art! Your family custom wood print will not only provide these 4 benefits, but also serve as a wonderful piece of art as previously mentioned.
