Inspiration: Vintage Family Photos

Are digital cameras impacting the American tradition of the classic family portrait?

Selected photos from my family album: My mom, Lake Tahoe 1958; my great-grandmother; my grandmother; my dad in uniform; my mom (before her friends had eyebrow intervention-yes really) with my brother and sister; my mom and her identical twin sister, brother and father; my dad and his family looking snappy

I am going to miss the differences in film (bye-bye polaroid... sigh) and photographic style that we all cherish in our favorite photos from the past. I worry that with all the new cameras and software, family photographs are going to look a whole lot alike and the next generation will not be able to see the changes in the world and technology advances through images in quite the same way .
