and we spoke about the fact that it seems to be a lost art. we have less and less time in our lives for extra things like blog stalking, day dreaming or web surfing. i feel the pressure too and i understand it. but i miss writing. and i miss reliving the beautiful moments of my family photo sessions.
i love looking back at a gallery of images after editing and swooning over the sweet summer light. there is this new special spot i’ve found that glistens with said magical light and just about all times of the day. and you combine that with the love that a family shares and it’s, to me, pure synchronicity. when those two collide i feel so full of passion and life and my camera and i are absolutely at one with each other. it’s like time stands still and everything plays out in slow motion–and all i see is the connection between that light and the love and energy of the family behind my camera.
as an artist it’s been so amazing to have had the honor of photographing this family for many years. documenting the adorable twins from a few months old to now and then the addition of a handsome baby brother who has grown up to be a pre-schooler has been so cool. and i’m now honored to call these guys my friends. they’ve been so kind and generous to me over the years and the admiration i have for them surely comes through in the images.
photography is never work for me. it’s a passion and it’s my life’s work even though i have lots to learn. i am so honored to have earned the trust of so many families over the years. and as long as they’ll have me–my camera and i will continue to follow along.
