When my Dad took photos of me as a 5-year-old and included the rest of my room, he never could have imagined I’d be looking at them from my house in Atlanta all these years later, waxing nostalgic for flowers.
I don't consider my job done until the framed photo is on display -- on the wall, the shelf, the desk, the table, wherever -- because it's part of what should be DONE when you have a photo shoot. The photo shoot shouldn't add another 10 things to your to do list!
I looove documentary films because they give us access to people and subcultures we may have never known even existed. Here are some I’ve especially enjoyed about extraordinary individuals.
Of course as kids grow, parents are constantly shifting routines — to accommodate everyone’s interests, progress, commitments — the “typical” day incrementally shifts all the time as the family evolves…With our smartphones, moments are captured, and moments are lost, and each of us experiences these time passages in our own way.
One of my favorite long-time clients admitted to me years ago that she'd never get around to ordering, framing, measuring, and hanging the photos of her kids from our shoot, even though she absolutely loved them. And that is incredibly common, but not every client admits it.
