When I was in college I convinced my younger sister that we needed to give our mom a professional portrait of us. Neither one of us had much money at that time since we were both students. But we both had part-time jobs so saving for something special like this was doable. My sister and I saved money for months to be able to pay for all the photography fees. It took us awhile to save for the photographers sitting fee and portrait package which had to be paid for partially in advance (Remember this is all before digital cameras). Deciding on a date and time proved to be more difficult for us since we are both organizationally challenged.

Once the appointment was set we needed a place to meet to primp for our very important photo shoot. I asked my sister to meet me at my college apartment since I lived closer to the photographer’s studio. Getting ready for the photo session was the best part. We spent hours primping and giggling before choosing the perfect dress for the occasion. The photo session was quick compared to the time spent actually planning for it. All in all we ended up with some great photos to choose from and picked out one 8×10 to have framed for my mother. She was thrilled to get a photo of her two girls. And, my dad still keeps that same photo on his desk at work. I’m so glad we took the effort to have photos made. Since that photo was taken we’ve both graduated college, moved, married, moved again, and have now started our own families. Now my mother has a great keepsake from her girls and we have a great memory to share forever.
