SOMETIMES I HAVE A WAY WITH PHOTOGRAPHS

                         SOMETIMES THEY HAVE THEIR WAY WITH ME ~

 

Here is a bit of info on my background in photography 

and a few thoughts on the importance of 

          photographs                                                                                    

 

 I owe my dad for recognizing my love of photography as I was constantly using his camera to capture what I saw

He encouraged me to enroll in photography classes and before long I was shooting film with my own camera and developing prints in my own darkroom

        

Photography quickly became one of the most important ways I relate to life,

My camera is a tool  I use to passionately preserve life's moments

                             

     "WHATEVER YOU DO, DO WITH YOUR WHOLE HEART"

                                                    Colossians 3:23

  

I believe photographs add depth and texture to our lives as they reconnect us to moments that remind us of who we are and how our lives are shaped by those we love and who love us

 

                         "WE DO NOT REMEMBER DAYS, WE REMEMBER MOMENTS"

                                                                      Cesare Pavese

 

 

On the Importance of Family Photographs 

Sitting on my floor sifting through literally hundreds of prints of my now grown and married daughter brings me indescribable joy, which is only the beginning,

I am drawn back into time, five, ten, twenty years and more  with all of the welcome memories of that exact moment in time,

times of  the firsts of everything 

first smile, first time sitting, standing, first time making pizzas, cookies, flower crowns, forts and sand castles

 

The longer the period of time the more valuable the memory becomes.

From times with little bald heads paired with chubby cheeks grinning toothlessly

to times with earned bruises from riding bikes and playing catch.

Memories of momentous times can easily surface because of a photograph

 

"I can promise you with my whole heart that there are very few things as worthy to own in life as

photographs of the people we cherish most. "  

 

I want you to know what I know in five, ten, twenty years 

and more

I want you to know the pricelessness of being drawn back into time and experience the joy of memories that easily surface because of a photograph 

 

 

I am positively passionate about making photographs that will continue to enrich the lives of  my clients as well as the lives of those that love them

 I would love to hear from you

 Let me help you celebrate life and give you lasting memories. I put my heart and soul into my work and my goal is to provide you with a quality product that will bring you lasting pleasure to own

IS DONE WELL"
