About Me, and this crazy obsession of mine…

PhillyWinner_HighResLogoIMG_8938bwsmI have always been obsessed with documenting life through a lens.  When my first son was born (13 yrs. ago) I took things a step further and started to really learn how to creatively capture moments.  I studied everything I could get my hands on and had plenty of practice with my very willing subject.  My children’s first years were so magical to me, all I ever wanted to be was a Mom.  The idea that this time was fleeting made me want to hang on to it even tighter.  Somehow I felt that if I had a photo of each moment, I could actually freeze time.  Well my boy’s are almost 13 and 10 now (updated to 17 and 14) so obviously I couldn’t really freeze time, but when I look back at those photos… I am taken back to those moments again.  I can actually hear their giggles, screams and babbles of nonsense.  I can smell Johnson’s baby shampoo, desitin, and strained carrots.  So for me it is the next best thing to actually freezing time.  Because of this, I strive to catch those “real moments” that do evoke such memories in all of our senses.  My eye and heart are trained on the little things others may overlook.  Do I take way to many pictures of my own children, you bet I do.  Do I take way to many pictures at every family session, you bet I do.  Do I have to wade through hundreds of shots to get the ones that will move you to tears, you bet I do.  Would I change a thing, not for anything in the world.
