My Family Photography. The Identity Preserved and Carried Forward.
I age. My kids grow and I’m sure in to time I will be looking after their children. And some time after that, only fading memories will remain. My family photography is my desire and the natural urge to capture and preserve the unique history of my family using the best tools at my disposal today. Vivid images of the young and little, the smiles, happinesses and adoration. Extremely important pieces of life. So valuable and so deserving to pause and make an effort to make them. Something I would not trust my phone with.
Funny, clumsy children today and fledging and beautiful young adults tomorrow…Only two of us.. oh no — this is me — pregnant… stop… It is my second daughter on my belly as I did her newborn photosession… And wait.. is it her pregnant?
In this daily routine of events what is THAT moment worth preserving? All of them. And how many do we actually do? Nowhere near enough. At the end it is none of the material goods I will be remembered for. I’m certain it is just the binary information that will remain — printed or displayed on whatever means of technology they will have in the future. Tiny and beautiful digital echoes from the 21st century.
I design and meticulously prepare for every occasion when I’m taking family photographs. It is utterly important to connect and understand the family, its values, what makes it happy, drives it. Every family photograph is a reflection of a point in time — We’ve been there, we did it. We MADE an effort to be remembered, to give our future generations an opportunity to be connected to their roots, to their heritage, to their source.
I wholeheartedly believe the value of these memories and this connection transcends time, generations and is far above anything the money can by. That is why I’m using the very best gear available. The reason why I prepare and invest a lot of effort in it — my memories, my family and its history deserve NOTHING LESS.
A word about health considerations – I work with lots of families and newborn children. I understand it is a matter of personal choice and my choice, my obligation, is the absolute safety for my household and for all my clients. While everyone in our household is fully vaccinated, we take no chances with vaccination.
UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCE I ACCEPT FAMILIES WHO EXERCISE THE NO VACCINATION APPROACH.
