I feel that photographs are very powerful. They can help you remember how you felt at a split second in time. What you felt when you saw your spouse for the very first time on your wedding day. How your baby’s cheek felt against your finger when they were one week new. The nostalgia you feel when your child is graduating high school. I have experienced all of these, and I know how fast time goes by. That is why I think photography is so very important. I passionately believe that photographs are heirlooms you create not just for yourself, but your children and your grandkids.
