I'm a passionate girl. When I get an idea, when I find something I love, I run with it & don't look back.
Recently, photography has become one of my loves, one of my passions.
I found a blog post written by a local photographer yesterday in which all of the reasons I love photography were captured.
She talked about how one of her friends whom she had recently done a photo session with was in a car accident with her family & her husband was killed in it.
Luckily, her friend had recently had some photos taken of she & her husband & their two small boys.
That's all they have now.
& that is the reason I love photography.
Not because death is a sure fate for all of us, but because life is speeding by ever more quickly each day.
If I were a momma, I'd never want to forget the chicken legs of my newborn & the way his face looked when he screamed because although those days seem so long I'm sure, all too quickly they're gone & it's easy to forget.
I'd want to remember what my 6-year-old looked like with some teeth missing & an awkward haircut because it wouldn't be long until I was taking prom pictures.
I'd want to remember how my parents played & looked at my children and how my husband nurtured my little girl; those moments are quickly fleeting.
If I were newly engaged, I'd never want to forget how my husband made me feel in the early stages of our relationship.
If I were getting married I'd want to remember every detail of the day from my toes to my fingernails & everything in between.
I love photography because it's the only way to freeze a moment in time & remember days that are all too quickly forgotten.
& I want to be able to do that for other people. I want to be able to capture every little detail so they never forget.
I love photography.
