A long time ago during a client viewing I had a dad say to me, " I have the real thing, why do I need a picture!" I know most people don't hire a photographer without a purpose but I always wonder if it means so little to him to capture such a great memory. I myself have always cherished memories even if its a snap shot or two. That's were photography started so long ago. He is right, you will have them to hold and look at in the moment but time goes by and sometimes those memories fade or get forgotten. Little details and generations lost...Memories bring tears of joy, can give hope, bring smiles and laughter. They can inspire...they can bring people together. A memory can be a photograph of someone you love, someone you don't want to forget, someone that makes you smile and to feel they are still in your heart! Here is just a sample of why I cherish photography! Want you to meet my sweet grandmother and her life as I remember!
