Most folks know us as a weddings photography studio who dabble in the commercial world of corporate portraits, product photography and events photography. But if you are one of our recent clients over the past several years you will have noticed a wee shift into more family, baby, newborn and maternity photography sessions.
Now when you ask families, especially parent and grandparents - and YES even the great grandparents - what is the most important thing you might save in the event of losing your home if you had 10 seconds to decide? That's right! The family photos! The baby photos, the wedding photos. The graduation pics! Any and all of the above is the most consistent pattern of answers we receive when talking to or reviewing with clients. This speaks volumes about the importance of preserving memories and our own personal history through photographs and what it's come to mean to the modern family.
It might seem like an odd choice but photographers and photography have been a part of our history for almost a couple of hundred years now. This amazing medium has helped chronicle the biggest events in history as well as the little family adventures we all take for granted at the time, the ones that never fail to make us smile and laugh when we are reminded of the.
Photography and its end result - photographs - outlive individuals, families and the photographer. They live on for generations. They perfectly fossilise a moment in time. It may also bring total joy and inspiration to another generation as they seek out who you once were in order to better understand their own past. For them it's like a wonderful jigsaw puzzle that brings alive a past that tells a story long after our time has come and gone.
Pictures, like music, can speak directly to our emotions. They can make us feel huge amounts of sympathy, empathy, joy and sorrow. Sometimes all at once. It's an expression of every human emotion sometimes, especially depending on who looks at the photograph. A picture can very well be worth a thousand words when the photographer, and subject, may well not have the words to describe the feelings they might have had at that moment and they continue to do this long, long after we are gone. If you're not the best at expressing feelings or emotions photography can be an incredibly important visual language that helps you communicate. It certainly helped me become a better communicator and person. Photography helps families and photographers alike to remember when we have forgotten or when we can simply no longer remember at all.
