I have two young daughters. And while I am never far from my camera for whatever photo opportunity may arise, sometimes I forget about the litte things. The details that make what happened that day the perfect day, or a memorable day. That little tiny fingers grow daily and pretty soon those tiny fingers and hands no longer want to help out in the way they once had. Since I’ve gotten more and more involved into the photography world, I am more aware of taking these moments and documenting them. Years from now I will still have my memories but memories seem to hold stronger and longer when accompanied by photographs. Although there are moments when I place my camera to the side and just breathe and enjoy what is going on, it’s usually after at least a short burst of photos. I feel that since I have had children the days go by faster than they ever have before. I sometimes look back before I had them and think “What did I do with all my time?” or “Why did I think I was so busy?”! And so for as long as I am able to, I will continue to leave photographic evidence of the life we have lived. So that even if my children and future family’s memories begin to become foggy, it will be my photographs that bring back the little details. The little details that may not have seemed so important at the time, but truly make up our lives.
