Why I love this profession.

 
 
"Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever...it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything."  -Aaron Siskind

 

Those words perfectly describe how a single photo my father took of my mother standing on the beach in California at sunset piqued my curiosity in photography.  

Every time I present a gallery to clients and witness the look of joy on their faces, I find myself just as excited as I was years ago after my first official photoshoot. The images allow them to relive those moments, and sometimes discover new ones they didn't even realize occurred. As a photographer, being asked to be a part of a wedding, graduation, birth announcement or other important times in a clients life is one of the biggest compliments because they know you will give them more than photos. You provide them the illustrations to their story.
