Telling The Story

April 21, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

 A couple weeks ago I went to the museum of fine arts here in Houston. It was literally the first time I visited a museum and I really didn't know what to expect. I thought it would be boring but thought well what do I have to loose. Go check it out, so I did. I was unaware of all of the rules the museum had and if you know me I broke a few. Not on purpose but I did make that beeping alert go off a couple of times. OOPS, my bad. I walked around the museum to get a better sense of light and shadows on paintings to learn what to be on the look for when I am photographing. Most of the exhibits were cool, some were boring. But what really caught my attention was this exhibit that was about photography. You would think this is obviously something I would be interested in and yes I sure was. It was an exhibit of high school aged children that took photos of things that stood out to them, things that were important to them. I found myself amazed. Intrigued as to how amazing, simple and artistic these images were. But honestly what really caught my attention was the story's that they wrote to describe,represent their photo. As a photographer I had that wow, ah ha moment. Actually it was a very profund moment for me. So many times I take pictures of events, my clients or because something catches my eye. But what happens after I take that photo? Does my photo tell the events or reasons why I took the picture in the first place? NO, it doesn't. My goal is to tell the story of why this photo was taken. What does it mean to me. What caught my attention that I took this photo and what I was thinking when I took it.

I'm not great about writing or blogging as you may have noticed. I may not always spell everything correct or not use run-on sentences but I will share THE STORY with you. Be patient, be kind. Please let me tell YOUR STORY through the images we create together. It's important not just for now but for your children and family in the future.
