Why I Photograph Portraits

"The trouble is, you think you have time." -Jack KornfieldBermuda-family portraits-vacation-2016-bermudas-photography-travel-travel blogger-beautyosaurus lex-Alex Good-island-St. George Bermuda

Tell me, where have you been dreaming of visiting. Who will go with, and can you practically feel the anticipation of adventure arise in your gut? Alright, I'm about to say thee most cliche thing; tomorrow is not promised. We can squeeze our eyes shut and will that we'll all be here tomorrow, but it just isn't the case.

That is why I became drawn to capturing portraits.

I don't take photos to boast or share on the 'Gram, I take them to pull confidence out in people and to steal a second in time for our future selves.

I photograph to spark an emotion when my images are viewed, to have something tangible to cherish from one moment in time for the rest of their lives.

That's the God honest truth. Let's make today the start to the rest of our lives of living with intention, hitting the snooze button to sneak in a few more morning snuggles, and stop torturing ourselves by trying to go upstream in our struggles.Bermuda-family portraits-vacation-2016-bermudas-photography-travel-travel blogger-beautyosaurus lex-Alex Good-island-St. George BermudaWhat do you say? Will you join me on this adventure?
I love you, you are so much more important than you know, and I'm here for you!
