Growth and the Gray Family
"Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever… It remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.”
— Aaron Siskind
I worked with Jessica once upon a time. We had babies close in age, and quit to become stay-at-home mommy's around the same time. Many of you know my story from there. I picked up my spiffy crop-sensor camera (no hate!) plus my one lens and started charging people $30 to take and deliver 30-50 photos. Let's be honest, I had no IDEA what I was doing. I think most photographer's start out this way. They look back on what they took when they were just getting started and cringe just a little (a lot). But let's not downplay the importance of those photos. While they are, from a photography standpoint, technically incorrect, and appear to the trained (and sometimes untrained eye) to be, for all intensive purposes, a mess; they are moments and memories. And they are still meaningful and cherished by those posing in them.
These photos in particular have meaning for me as well. Jessica was one of my very first clients EVER. She was always SO supportive of my business (erm..hobby...), and she has sent dozens of clients my way over the years. These photo's are so important to me personally because they show how far I've come as a photographer. I'm not saying I've arrived at perfection (far from it!!), but I am proud of the progress.
