DOCUMENTARY PHOTOGRAPHY PROVIDES TANGIBLE MEMORIES.
As a wife & mama I am forever reminded of how fleeting our lives are. We get caught up in the day to day and dont realize that the habits and routines we implement directly effects the people our children become. Photographs of our children when they are little provides tangible memories of the love that us as moms & dads have built from the very beginning.
Documentary photography helps us bear witness to our own lives and the lives around us. It helps us step back and see the big picture and purpose if what we are doing, I want for parents to be reminded that what they do matters. Making pancakes every Saturday morning, folding endless piles of laundry and cleaning up messes may seem very hum drum, but they are the very things that make us who we are.
Those are the things I want to document.
