Prior to photo sessions I snap a few images to adjust camera settings, test light and choose more precise locations. It's very relaxing and helps me to really focus. In the past few months I've started including a small sample of these images with my clients' galleries. Usually a detail shot or two of something in nature. These photos are a reminder of a place where memories were documented forever. A season of life frozen in time.
I find beauty in the simple things. Let this be a reminder for you to do the same.
Slow down, take a breath and look around.
"The more often we see the things around us - even the beautiful and wonderful things - the more they become invisible to us. That is why we often take for granted the beauty of this world: the flowers, the trees, the birds, the clouds - even those we love. Because we see things so often, we see them less and less." Joseph B. Wirthlin
