Why Take Pictures

Sometimes I ask myself what it is I love so much about photography (especially photography of people.)  I love what Justin Hackworth said here:

I love that by just the click of a button I get an image that reminds me of sights, sounds, smells, and feelings for the rest of my life.

I love that photography makes me see the beauty in everything and everyone I photograph.

It makes me slow down a little in the hustle of everyday life and enjoy the little moments.

I helps me remember the past, enjoy the present, and look forward to those future pictures I will take (Allie holding our next baby, our kids on a family vacation, even pictures this coming Christmas with the fam)

The more I do it the more I love it, and I hope that is the way it stays.
