To quote Ferris Bueller "Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while you might miss it..." As the mother of two fantastic young men I couldn't agree more! I have grown to understand the importance of capturing as many memories as possible, before we're looking back wondering where all the years went.
After working too many years in a mundane, overly stressful management role I realized I had been missing their smiles, their achievements and shortcomings and the opportunity to capture those memories forever. I also realized I was missing something else. Pride and passion for what I do. To be genuinely happy and create beautiful work we've got to love what we do. Being able to evoke laughter, or that precious moment of quiet appreciation by catching just the right expression or perfect emotion is unlike any other feeling of accomplishment. To have the gift of giving others joy and priceless memories is truly a blessing - one not to be wasted.
With that gift in hand, in the form of a camera- I set out to be your photographer.
