I found this poem on a photography website and I love it, so I quickly made one to match my style...I think I can make it better, but I didn't have much time.
I love what it says, as it is so true...it captures at least a part of why I love photography so much.
When I look at this picture below, I will forever remember the sweet moment shared between Father and daughter...how in love Chelsea is with her daddy....how she just ran to him and nestled herself into his big body, all snug and safe and warm while she giggled with delight. I want to save that feeling and remember it forever...how it warmed my heart to see her so in love with dad, even at practically 11 years old.
And this picture below; the face of my sweet boy, who was so sick the day before and mysteriously great the next day. I want to remember what his body does when he does too much, and remember how great the next day is when he rests it out so I don't freak out every time it happens. I want to remember how he picked this flower for me...and how he used it to beg me to let him play some basketball with his daddy even though he had more schoolwork to do and should have been resting. ;)
His resilience and perseverance floors me. His desire to just keep going without complaining? I admire it and him and his attitude tremendously. He has such a zest for life, such a joy about him, such a love for even the simplest things. I don't want to forget this about him when he is all grown up.
I love how pictures evoke thoughts, feelings, and memories...and how capturing them on film allows these sentimental thoughts, memories, and feelings to be remembered for a lifetime.
While I have more photos from today, I couldn't get to them all, so I decided to start with these two....because 2 are better than nothing. :)
