I was sitting up late last night, candle burning, music humming away, editing the last of this session. And you know what jumped out at me? The love in these. Yeah, I know. Sappy. But I'm feeling sappy so let me go on. That last image up there? Look at her face. If that's not love, tell me what is?
I am extremely lucky that I work with people I do. People who have that desire to stop time for a few frames. People who understand how precious it is to preserve moments before they become faded memories. At the end of the day, we may know in our hearts that we loved and we loved good, but what else is there to say it was that way? Photographs do that for us. They are a reminder that love is all around you, always. We feel it, but we rarely get to see it. And that's why I love this gallery so much because it is just so clear. They adore one another.
Yes, the children will grow taller, and older and every day they grow further from the age they were yesterday but this collection simply preserves this moment in time. And that, is why I love what I do. Magic.
And now, my friends, I am off to the fruit store to reward a long days worth of editing, baby cuddling and picture taking with the largest mango I can get my hands on. That, and some Bon Iver in the car. Tell me a better way to end the day.
Much love X
