A bit of counter-intuition for friends, photographers, and everyone in between:
Don’t be so eager to photograph the daily treasured moments of your life
above all else.
To be in ‘pictures or it didn’t happen’ mode, twenty-four seven.
To be removed from the reality of interaction with family, children, experiences.
Take time to enjoy and feel the depth and beauty of what you witness.
Bring the energy of your presence – go quiet –
be fully there.
Even a second of this type of connecting brings this beautiful state of present energy to the photographer –
and within the photographs you create.✨
