Earlier this year I noticed something exciting happening in my work.
I was in a sales session with a client and caught myself saying, “There is always one photo from everyone’s session, that makes me say ‘WOW. This is one of my favourite photos I’ve ever taken.’”
That conversation flashed in my mind late last night, while laying out another beautiful goddess’ album proof.
When it came to laying out this particular photo, I knew it needed its own page. Truthfully, I believe the thought was DAMN, this needs to be blown up and hung in my office! But same idea.
This image is far more than a photograph. It is a moment.
A moment so special to my client, that neither you nor I will ever fully come to know. Because it is her moment.
As a viewer, it is one of those moments where you really have to stop, and just take a breath. Breathing in the awe and wonder of something so beautiful, something so peaceful.
On a personal level, it is one of those moments that fills me with so much love, to know that my client has entrusted me to share in such a sacred and vulnerable experience.
To my gorgeous client: Thank you, you beautiful goddess, for enriching my own personal life with your expansive love and openness. Meegwetch.
To those of you reading this: I challenge all of you, to be present enough, if only for today, to recognize and honour those moments in your lives where those around you are brave enough to open up and share a piece of themselves with you.
