The Importance Of A Photograph

The Importance of a Photograph

I always felt I had a creative nature, but quite frankly, I wasn't particularly good at painting or drawing. When I found photography, I finally found my creative outlet.

That's how it started, as a creative outlet. But over the years, it has become so much more. Photography now has a huge emotional aspect for me.

A few years ago, when my business was just starting, I took this image. It's an image of my husbands Grandparents. His Grandad is no longer with us. At the time, I didn't think much of the quick snapshot, but now, it is a very precious memory.

That's what photography means to me. It's not just a picture, it's capturing a moment in time, it's giving you something tangible and physical to hold in your hands and be transported back to a particular place. Looking at a photograph can spark off so many other senses; hearing the birds, smelling a fish and chip shop, feeling the grass on your bare feet and the breeze on your face.

But more than that, it gives something to future generations. My children will now know what their Great-Grandad looks like when we tell them the amazing stories of his life. When our children get married, I want to have plenty of images to embarrass them on their wedding day. When my husband and I are Grandparents ourselves, I have evidence that on our wedding day we actually had our own teeth and were remarkably wrinkle free.

Until science gives us a time travel device, treasure the memories you have taken the time to immortalise in a photograph. Do them the justice of printing them and putting them in a beautiful frame, or printing them on canvas, rather than letting them sit on your computer.

When I am doing a shoot, I try and keep this in mind. I want to give you a memory of your family that transports you back to that time and place. I can't wait to meet you.
