Seeing the Feeling

Do you have a favorite photograph where you remember the exact moment and can feel the textures…smells…details…even now?

When you see it, does it make you feel warm (or even teary) inside?

These photographs, however quickly or imperfectly taken, speak to you because the photograph contains the energy of the emotion itself.

I recall a Polaroid taken by my husband when our daughter was a few weeks old. He carried this picture in his wallet and in a little frame in his office.



I couldn’t understand why he liked it so much…At the time, I only saw a picture taken at an unguarded moment, the style of dress…my little girl as tiny as a doll…

It was only years later that I understood that this specific photograph recalled the feeling of being a proud new husband and father.

To help when he needed motivation, comfort and reassurance in his life.  

To help put things in perspective.  

To remember that his family loved him.

How wonderful to leave pictures of beautiful moments of reality for your children?

How wonderful would it be to have more than one of this kind of photograph?

A whole sessions’ worth?  

A whole weddings’ worth?  

A day in your life’s worth?
