Change is nothing new, it happens on a daily basis. It can happen over night. We all know that. That’s life. Ever changing. The circle of life, if you will. But so bitter sweet.
So much has happened in my life at the young age of twenty-five. But I have never felt a faster change with-in my life then I have in the last year or two. Sometimes It feels like I’m standing still and everything is changing around me. So I’ve learned to slow down when I’m in the moments, but I don’t think I’ll ever stop creating out of the fear of change. It’s bitter sweet because the future is full. Full of everything I every imagined for a life for myself, with some fears of course. But there’s so much that has changed and will never be the same. So much familiarity is in the past. just memories.
I’ve had a lot of loss in my life, and always wished I had more photographs so I could remember everything and never forget. I think that that’s partially why photography is so important to me and has become a passion. So anytime I go somewhere my camera is by my side. Whether it’s my canon or my iPhone. I love capturing moments that will never exist again. Especially with family.
I’m so glad that I was able to capture Gavin’s family this spring. Everyone is moving in different directions and doing different things. Families are getting bigger and smaller at the same time. Big change is just around the corner. But from the past will have these photographs to flood our memories with those moments.
“The best thing about a picture is that it never changes, even when the people in it do.” – Andy Warhol
