Photography is invaluable.

A horrible tragedy happened last week that our neighborhood cannot comprehend.  One of our Norrisville neighbors lost their beautiful sweet 14-year-old daughter.  It was a horrible freak accident.  She was hit by a car on Route 136.  I’m not sure anyone around here can talk about it without choking up.

At the funeral home, I noticed they had a slideshow of hundreds of images of Heather.  At that moment I realized that I don’t take nearly the amount of photos of my children that I should.  Photography is my career, and I take photos of everyone else’s children but my own, and you know what? We must take time to photograph our own children or have them photographed.  Life can be way too short and it is way too precious.  Having photos of your loved ones is invaluable.   Our hearts and prayers go out to the Greer family.  There are no words to truly express…..

It’s so important to celebrate life every moment we can….
