“We take photos as a return ticket to a moment otherwise gone.” – Katie Thurmes
Time is such a funny thing. Honestly, my inability to cope with the passing of time is why I am a photographer. Moments like this last a mere heartbeat, and at the same time, stretch forever. Those last days of being pregnant truly feel as though they will never end, and yet somehow you blink, and your baby is a year old! Photography for me is an attempt to hang on to moments forever. I’ve always said that I don’t want to live things over again (least of all seventh grade) but if I could just go back and visit my babies for a few moments…just to hold the two-year old version of my daughter for another moment... But, as that is impossible, I try to capture moments in images.
“The best thing about a picture is that it never changes, even when the people in it do.” – Andy Warhol
