remember when websites had music players? and you’d listen to the song, and watch the slideshow?
somehow i became a crotchety old lady in the course of like 5 years guys.
cause i totally want to stare down my nose and tell you that photos are ten zillion times better with music and we should bring back those slow-loading slideshows and auto-playing songs you’d have to scramble to turn down if you went to a photography website when you weren’t ‘posed to.
of course before the slideshows with swelling songs there were prints that you held in your hands, albums you leafed through that had a specific smell.
with all the scrolling and the disappearing and everr’thang, i just want us to think about how we experience photos and how we’d really like to experience them. how we’d like to honor them, versus making them disposable. cause with all this technology-born freedom we are the bosses and it’s just kinda sad to think how we just let them slide into nothingness because we think we’ll do something with them someday but we never do.
we never do.
with that, here’s some photos you can scroll through. wry smile.
but while these will be scroll-through pics to lots of you, to this couple they will be the feeling of the last few days in their first house, before they moved on and moved up and moved away to new excitements.
(every piece of your story deserves that kind of honoring, bee-tee-double-you…)
and hey hello if you’d like to save your memories from iphone/hard drive/oh-we’ll-totally-do-that-someday death, I’d love to be the witness of the hard, hard work you do to choose love every day with your closest people. Let’s chat about your session.
