I used to think photos were only pretty pictures of someone else. Until I received a B/W photo of my Dad—taken when he was a boy. He had family with him...posed under a tree. These faces look like me and tether me back to a time long ago. The photo was simple but the family had taken time to pose for the photographer.
Being the baby in my family, these are the only visual connections I have with my Dad’s history. Work with an professional photographer and consider the image you are presenting. We take the time to talk with you about your goals, the photos recipient, and the story you are telling.
Your pictures are special to someone. Perhaps someone you will never meet -- but the images tell a story.
