One of the most common answers to the question, "If there was a fire in your home and you could only take one item with you, what would it be?" is the family photo album. If you have such an album or a collection of photographs, spend some time with it before this session. How do you feel when you view photographs of your family? What feeling do you hope the families involved in the project will experience when they view their photos? You might want to share these feelings with the group and ask them to keep in mind that, as they create a lasting record of families, they are also creating a path to memories and special feelings that families can return to time and time again.
