“Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever… It remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.”
A picture is worth a thousand words!
Think about it. When you pick up a portrait, what happens? I'll tell you. Your emotions take over! When you pick up an amazing portrait of your kids smiling just warms your heart. A silly portrait of a sibling would make you laugh. Or maybe you saw an old portrait of yourself and you said: "hey I still got it"!
But let's dive deeper. Have you ever lost a loved one? What's one of the first things you do? For me, I look for portraits of them. I want to see their face one more time. I want to see their smile one more time. A portrait allows you to go back in time to relive those moments. In life, no one is promised tomorrow! Because of that, we take portraits! We take portraits to record a moment in time, moments we can never get back!
Portraits can also be motivating! Sometimes one portrait can be all you need to change your life. You look at a portrait from a year ago and see yourself 30 pounds lighter than what you are currently. Then you instantly become motivated to lose weight so you could get back to your glory days!
So yes a picture is worth a thousand words. but the emotions that come with it is PRICELESS!
