Ani and Thomas from Hood River, Oregon, had only recently had their precious little baby girl. When I asked Ani what made her want to organise a photoshoot with me (my name is not exactly well known all the way in Oregon), she said she loves photos and she wants all important memories captured. So every time she gets an opportunity, she wants photos done of their family - something that Thomas isn't always an all too willing a participant, but I got the feeling he will do anything to make Ani happy.
And I agree with Ani. Our lives are important. The people in our lives are important. And the memories we make with those people are far, far more precious than any material thing we may own. Because it's these memories that make up our lives. And so these memories deserve to be beautifully captured! If not necessarily every day, then at every opportunity you get.
