WHy photography?

“There will come a time when you will feed
your baby for the very last time.
They will fall asleep on you after a long day,
And it will be the last time you ever hold your sleeping child.
One day you will carry them on your hip then set them down,
And never pick them up that way again.
You will scrub their hair in the bath one night,
And from that day on they will want to bathe alone.
They will hold your hand to cross the road,
Then never reach for it again.
They will creep into your room at midnight for cuddles,
And it will be the last night you ever wake to this.
One afternoon you will sing “the wheels on the bus”
and do all the actions,
Then never sing them that song again.
They will kiss you goodbye at the school gate,
The next day they will ask to walk to the gate alone.
You will read a final bedtime story and wipe your last dirty face.
They will run to you with arms raised for the very last time.
The thing is, you won’t even know it’s the last time
Until there are no more times.
And even then, it will take you a while to realize.”

This is my why. These moments are too fleeting to be forgotten.

About Ryan

Years ago, a friend gave me his DSLR before he left for London. It was because of this that I decided to take photography in college. I would spend my Saturdays in the darkroom for six hours processing my film. It was in that darkroom that I was reborn. Reforged. Remade. Turned into a photo producing wizard of the dark arts.

Then, I pretty much forgot about photography for years. After having kids, starting our Young Living business four years ago, and starting this blog, my love for photography was reignited. The moments with our littles ones are so fleeting, and I am thankful we have the technology to freeze these moments and keep them forever. There is a last time for everything.

Let me capture these special moments for you.
