Creating A Legacy For Your Family

Often times when you hear the phrase leaving a legacy, you tend to think of a financial legacy. But a legacy doesn’t have to be monetary. A legacy is defined as “something transmitted by or received from an ancestor or predecessor or from the past” by Merriam-Webster dictionary. You have the choice of what you would like to leave your heirs. This can be an array of financial gifts, property, heirloom furniture, jewelry, etc. This list can go on and on. Have you considered the legacy of memories?

A memory is one of the strongest things that a loved one will hold onto in the future. We all have those special ones tucked away that we cherish. Having a ‘relationship style’ photo session with your family to highlight who you are as a unit now is one of the best gifts you can give. The image will last for generations and will give your loved ones a visual of the essence of your relationships. You get to decide what kind of shoot you would like to have. You can do it with your spouse, your children, your grandchildren, your great-grandchildren, your favorite car, your horse, etc. The list is long and is different for everyone. You have the opportunity to freeze this moment in time and preserve who you are today for many, many years to come.
