Sometimes you brainstorm, rack your brain, & even agonize over the right words to describe something that you “feel”… something that is more than the 1st glance, more meaningful than often realized at the time, and absolutely more cherished as years pass… a tangible item that preserves one of the greatest things – Time – and soon becomes priceless to you & your loved ones! Not many items can make that claim. So I nearly cried in joy and gratitude when one of my lovely clients told me that I do so much more than take pictures & sell photos – I capture the essence of loved ones, preserve that moment in life, & provide a gift to cherish for years to come. WOW – she totally got a big hug! She put in words the “feeling” that I had about what I was doing with my passion, my business, & my journey in photography. Ok… maybe now I have tears. I don’t mean to get all deep on you but I believe in my feeling – in the experience that I create for clients, in the moments that I capture, & in the gifts that everyone will cherish over the years.
* Yes ~ my home is filled with photographs of my loved ones… on the walls, shelves, tables, and in albums. One of my all time favorite photographs is of my dad & I when I was maybe 3yrs old simply playing in the backyard. I have no memory of that age and I know my younger childhood was not all smiles and popsicles but when I look at that picture I feel calm, assured, & loved. When I see my husband playing in the backyard with our 3yr old daughter… I know that everything is going to be ok. The power of a photograph!
