I'm not sure we understand how important pictures are until we look back on them and remember that time, that...  Milestone, in our life.  We are so busy planning for it, experiencing it, recovering from it, we don't always connect with documenting it in the manner it deserves until after the fact.  Then we can look back and say, "Yes, that was what I wanted.  This picture captured her beauty, her personality, the look in his eye, his playful grin."

I think I always knew this, but didn't really know this until my oldest graduated high school.  Spring of that senior year is blur of activity... banquets, prom, essays, college visits, sports, music, theatre (Can I get an "amen?")  One of my best freinds' now had a senior.  It was Fall, but she was graduating early.  Could I take her senior pictures?  At the time, I didn't know.  I had taken 10,000 pictures, but could I do this?  I remembered the saying, "Feel the fear and do it anyway."  Besides, this girl had beautiful blue eyes, light blond hair and a sweet smile.  She was smart, thoughtful and the daughter of a couple I had shared a hundred laughs with.  I took them.  She liked them. Fear faced!

Today... feel the fear and do it anyway!
