Have you ever looked back at an old picture and thought things like….Wow, look how little we were! I can’t believe I wore that! We’ve changed so much.”
Well, I have! Reasons like that are why I love photography so much. Old photographs allow us to reminisce and compare the past life to present life. Before I knew how to manually work a camera, I was snapping pictures for the sole purpose of that, “I don’t want to forget this moment” feeling. In other words, I wanted to document memories. The pictures you snap now will quickly become a memory. Now, I know how change the aperture, shutter speed and ISO, but the basic need to document memories is still something that lives and breathes within me. Somewhere in there, I’m still a little girl with a disposable camera.
I didn’t know it in 2004, but the girls I snapped a homecoming picture with would become my forever friends….my sisters. As Brittany put it, we have been there for each other through absolutely everything, good and bad. These photo shoots have become a staple for us, a mark in our friendship as we conquer life together. You know what they say.. pictures tell a thousand words!
It’s Kat’s turn to take on England! She and her husband Chris move to London next month. We are going to miss you guys so much, but I know it will be the trip of a lifetime!
