With film we savored each negative. We saved film for precious moments.
The wonderful (and sometimes terrible) thing about digital is that memory (cards, hard drives, etc) are so cheap that we can take pictures of everything and savor every silly, awesome, heartbreaking moment.
Sometimes, with all of the photos we’re inundated with, we forget to look at and savor each one.
Take this photo of my beautiful sister HayLee. I took it this week at Wheeler Farm in Murray, she’s 38 weeks pregnant with her second child.
The more I look at it the more I love it and think it’s my very favorite.
It’s so calm, there’s so much love there. A mother’s love. Not just a mother’s love, a wife’s love (hubby Heath came along too). All embodied in one photo.
This. This is what makes me fall in love with photo again and again.
Take some time to go through your photos, recent or old. Sometimes we forget the treasures we have, those images that mean the most that we sometimes glaze over because there’s just so many memories now. Relive them. Love them. Share them! Share them with me if you’re brave enough, I love seeing what people love and why.
