Photo – Dream Meaning and Symbolism


Dreaming of a photo means the past that brings diverse memories, both of sad and happy moments, that we once lived. It is important to be careful with your energies and always be close to those who love you.

What Does It Mean To Dream Of A Photo?

The need to immortalize special moments, in order to always remember them, meant that the technique of taking pictures was created a long time ago. The subconscious is also able to do this.

Therefore, the meaning of dreaming of a photo is nothing more than the way you are dealing with this memory and what you need to do about it.

In other words, photo dreams show something we should remember, not forget or let go and/or overcome.

Dreaming of a photo has both positive and negative interpretations. What will define what it will be is precisely the context, the feelings involved, the people who are in it and, of course, how is your life when you had the dream.

Dream Of Photos Of  You

Dreaming of photos is directly related to your self-image. It is natural to wish to look good. However, such a dream shows that you may be crossing the line in relation to your vanity and/or your behavior.

Be careful not to become too selfish or self-centered and, moreover, do not forget to give affection and attention to the people around you.

Dream Of Other People’S Photos

The meaning of dreaming of other people’s photos will depend, of course, on what appears in the image. Here are some interpretations:

Unknown People

When you don’t know the person, it’s a sign that your circle of friends will expand soon! And not only that: the person will be very important to you, for good or bad.

Known People

If people you know appear in dreams, it is a sign that you should pay more attention to those around you. Such a dream is a message that everything is a passenger, and if we don’t say “I love you” or “thank you” now, tomorrow may be too late.

Dreaming Of Friend’S Photo

Friend'S Photo

Although it is possible that the dream was good, dreaming of a photo of a friend(s) is a sign that there are memories of events and experiences that are “hammering the head”.

In this case, the unconscious is sending a message that these memories should be forgotten, because they are disturbing in some area of life, whether affective, social or professional.

Dreaming Of A Kin Photo

Dreaming of a relative’s photo means you have an affective bond with him.

This person appears in his dream to invite him to forget complicated situations of the past and walk to the new. That’s because great things are to come if you can overcome your past.

Dreaming You Are Holding A Photo

Holding A Photo

Dreaming that you are holding a photo also depends a lot on the context in which the dream happened: if you are giving this photo to someone, it is a sign that you do not approve of your behavior and that you do not want to be like it.

If, on the other hand, you get a picture of someone you like, it is a sign that this person also likes you and intends to stay by your side, being a loyal friend, for example.

Dream You Are Taking A Photo

Regardless of the device you use to take the photo (mobile phone or camera), when you take a picture, even in a dream, it means that you have the need to eternalize a certain memory.

If you are living a happy moment and want time to stop, the dream comes as a message that you should not only take advantage of this moment but continue as you are being.

The meaning of dreaming of a photo, where the photographer is you, can change whether you take the picture of someone you know or not.

In the first case, it is an omen that something very good will happen soon. In the second, unexpected things, which you never imagined would be possible, will happen.

Naturally, in dreams the famous selfie may appear, which is when you take a picture of yourself.

In this case, the new events will not come from third parties, but from yourself and probably things that you really want and still do not have the courage to do, but the dream shows that you will have.

Dream Of Old Photos

Old Photos

Generally, the meaning of dreaming of old photos is from the past. The context of the photo and the feelings you had when the photo was taken count a lot for the interpretation:

If the photo shows a good past, it means that you miss that time and are afraid of not being happy like that in the future. If, on the other hand, the photo shows a painful past, it means that you are forcing yourself to mentally relive negative experiences, afraid of repeating the same mistakes.

However, dreams of old photos show that these memories are not helping you evolve, on the contrary, you need to free yourself from them and the negative feelings they arouse in you. Otherwise, your past will continue to disrupt your present and prevent your future from being prosperous.

If the photo is yellowish or stained (something that may or may not be time wear), it is a sign that some situation from your past, which you did not understand at the time, will teach you an important lesson when you are ready to understand the message.

Dreaming Of Baby Photos

The first thing people wonder about what it means to dream of baby photos is whether the family will grow. The answer is: yes and no. It will depend on what you are feeling when you had the dream.

If you are thinking of having a baby, the dream appears as a sign that you can talk about it with your partner about it.

In fact, it may be that someone you know will have a child soon.

Another interpretation of the dream of baby photos is a sign that your life will change course, to the bright side. Who knows what you so long for won’t happen soon?

Dreaming Of Landscaping Photos

Dreaming of landscape photos is a good sign! That’s because this type of photo reveals that you will have a lot of prosperity and that your financial condition will improve.

Dreaming Of A Photo Of A Person Who Has Already Died

Despite the sadness surrounding the death of a loved one, dreaming of a photo of a person who has already died can have positive interpretations, because it shows someone that you miss and who will always be in your heart.

Another interpretation shows that it may be a sign that times of great happiness are coming for you and your family.

Dreaming Of The Loved Person Photo

Dreaming of a photo of the loved one brings you the following question: Are you showing enough attention and affection for your partner?

You probably need to pay a little more attention to those you love, spending more time together and doing cool things, for example.

Dreaming Of Wedding Photo

Although it seems that there will be some link soon, this is not necessarily the meaning of dreaming of a wedding photo. In fact, it shows that you need to pay a little more attention to your well-being.
