Photos are memories of times that you don’t want forgotten. They record our children that have just come into being, our best friends that we marry and our elders that we want to remember forever. In this age, the smartphone has made it even more accessible to capture photos of your loved ones. That doesn’t take away the role of a photographer. I myself have many cameras, of them all, my smartphone is the most used for everyday shots, but for a family portrait or a newborn shoot there’s something to be said about the skill of photographer that knows how to manipulate depth of field with knowledge of aperture, focal length and shutter speed.
I can do that.
I also love to celebrate love, so not many of my family images will be smiling at the camera. But rather smiling at each other with joy in the promise to come, or the promise we have.
