“When people look at my pictures I want them to feel the way they do when they want to read a line of a poem twice.”
I am a mother of two young children and if you’re a mother like me, you’re hardly in any photographs. You’re always the one pulling out your camera or phone to take hundreds of pictures of your children and maybe some of your husband but not with yourself.
Thank you for taking the first step to be present in your family’s photographs. Make a commitment to be present and to be present regularly. Print your photos and display them, not leave on your computer to forget. Have something your children can hold and look at and remember you by. Many years from now they will see these pictures and remember how you held them and kissed their owies, not how much you weighed or how many wrinkles you had.
Photographing your family is a privilege. Please allow me that privilege to create something beautiful and tangible that will last for generations and help you be present in your family’s legacy.
