I’ve officially been self-isolating for 2 months. As an introvert and someone who already worked from home, my daily life has not changed dramatically and for that I am very thankful. This time has given me a chance to breathe, to get all of my videos and photography galleries to my couples without delay and to reflect on why I do what I do and find it so important.
I cannot cherish photographs and videos enough. I think it it magical to capture moments in time that will never happen again and have them for future generations to enjoy. I’ve always studied and enjoyed history, and I feel so privileged to be able to capture the most pivotal parts of my clients history.
When memories fade, what is more powerful than a photograph to take you back?
The big moments or the seemingly insignificant, it’s all important in telling your story. And that is a privilege I do not take lightly.
I cannot wait to get back to “normal”, although I hope some change comes from the current situation and the reflection is has allowed society about its many unsustainable ways of living.
I cannot wait to get back to capturing these moments, to making you feel safe in the vulnerability you show in front of my lens and to create photographs and videos that will be cherished for generations to come.
In the meantime, read more of my musings here.
