Parents, Grandparents and elders have stopped me over the years to tell me the same thing: cherish every moment. It goes too fast. One day they are little and the next, they’re not. They say it while staring fondly, wistfully, at my kids. Watching their faces, I can tell that some part of them is replaying a memory of when their own children were small and needed them more. This for me is the reason why I love what I do as a photographer. I am able to help parents capture these moments that fly by in an eternal print and frame. We can savor our memories of our young children by looking loving at an old photograph of them just being themselves. Photographs give you that personal insight into their state of mind and capabilities at that specific time. A photograph inspires our memory, brings back a particular smell or feeling we had in that moment and for every parent that instant insight is priceless.
Parents come back each year for that annual shoot time and time again as they recognize how the fast the special moments of their little ones childhoods fly by. Photos help you treasure and relive these moments as you reflect back on the growth and achievements of your children over the days, months and years.
Perhaps the best quote I have heard this week is that “they are older today than yesterday and time is not slowing down.” All we can do is preserve time and this is what Tomato Photo does best.
