  1. I know this firsthand. I recently took photos at cub scout camp and shared them with the parents that did not attend with their boys and they were much more appreciative than I could have imagined. My photography skills are nothing special, but I did bless them with memories they wouldn’t have otherwise had (and it in turn made my heart feel good)

  2. Great post! I always take pictures when we have friends over. This year I plan on giving my children photo albums with these pictures in them. What a fun way to capture their childhood. And I also email the pictures to the parents for their albums.

  3. I always get the pix – my problem is getting them to people later. Sigh. It’s something I need to work on. Thanks for the reminder.

  4. this was a well timed prompt , Dawn.
    Thank you. I’m getting a little braver with people photos.
    I know what a gift it is when someone emails or gives me photos, and I so need to remember this as a way to bless others.

  5. You’re right, I just need to do it! I have a ton of pictures of different events and they are uploaded to my computer. But they just. sit. there.
    Thanks for the reminder, Dawn! Always timely. 🙂

  6. I understand this completely. I recently found a love for photography and have taken pictures of my brothers children and my friends children. They both have expressed how much of a blessing this is to them. It is a great way to show love and care for those close to you. It is a great gift.

  7. Dawn, this is an excellent post! And I, too, get warm fuzzy happiness when I see someone uses my photo as their profile pic!!

  8. I get the same opportunities all the time. I get their email addy and email them all the copies of their kids pics. I have found, though, many parents reluctant to me posting them online.
    But now I have been hosting my family’s pics on our own hosting service now and glad my kids can participate without running into icky pics on most hosting sites out there.
