When you photograph your family or friends you are capturing a moment in time. Most of those moments are personal to you, the photographer, and may even seem unimportant. But remember that you have just created a lasting memory for someone else. A chance for someone to see the world as it once was—5 years ago, 20 years ago, or hundreds of years ago. The memory becomes more important with the passing of time.
My favorite photography quote is by Aaron Siskind and states that "Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever... it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything." So go photograph the little things in your life in the best possible way.
