On this day February 7, 2000 my father made his exit from the planet. Thinking back over my life and my fondness of photography and the journey of capturing the world through the eyes of my lens came very natural to me seeing that all of our lives my parents always kept a camera and photograph candid moments all through our childhood and beyond. We even schedule family photo sessions at the nearest photo studio for the professional photographs. As a teenager into adulthood I did the same thing always having a camera near to capture candid moments of our surroundings and photographing classmates at school! So today as I reflect on my dad and all the life lessons he brought myself and siblings.I'm thankful that he left us fond memories and images that told a tale of time in our personal history. Today I honor you dad and I thank you for the life lesson you taught me!
Now many moons later I find myself as a photographer capturing memories not only for myself and family moments I’m now able to provide timeless memories for host of families that I’m given the pleasure to meet throughout the years. So thankful for my parents who with unspoken words instilled in us the importance of capturing personal histories of people through images. An image can truly be worth a thousand words.
In Loving Memory of my Dad! -
