All photographers are magicians. We can freeze time and capture a moment that can later be reflected on at anytime. If you stop and think about this, capturing a photo is very powerful. You can look at a photo from the past, travel back in time and be inspired to prepare for the present or the future. Or maybe looking at the past will bring up some nostalgia and flood you with some inspiring emotions. No matter how you look at, photos give the ability for the viewer to go back in time.
This past weekend I was able to take photos of my long-time friend Allan's family. His wife Eliza is very pregnant with their first son Nolan and he is due very soon. Allan and Eliza had some great ideas for photos and I was more than happy to help bring them to life. When I look at these photos I think how these photos will last forever and that when baby Nolan comes he will have a chance to travel back in time and see his family before he was born.
I like to imagine a setting where Nolan is older maybe in his teens and he his looking at these photos with his family. The conversations that these photos could start could be very powerful and leave a lasting impression on him and his family. I think the ability to create something that can do this is pretty magical.
