On one of my recent flights back to NWA I watched the movie Kodachrome. The storyline centers around a photographer and his son. While I won’t give away the story and moral, I did start to think about the role photography plays in my family.
We’ve all heard the saying, “the cobblers children have no shoes.” That’s not to imply I don’t take photos of my family. If you’ve been on the blog at all lately, you’ll see posts about all my girls. But I realized that most of those photos are portraits. Lovely portraits, sure, but portraits.
My wedding photos balance portraits with moments, but when it comes to moments in my own life, I want to be better at capturing them. I didn’t tell them I was going to photograph them. I didn’t have them change clothes or fix their hair. They were perfect as they were.
Talk to you soon,
P.S. For the photographers out there… have you watched Kodachrome? What were your thoughts?
