I had the same epiphany just yesterday in the shower, where all the best epiphanies occur. I was thinking over a photo shoot I did with my sister's family and realized how very, very blessed we are to have this magic thing called a photograph. Isn't it amazing that we're able to take some thing real and make a 2 dimensional representation of it? It's hard to wrap my brain around some times, but, then again, I'm not much of a science person. :-)
But, consider all the important moments that we are able to look back on even if we weren't present, or even alive when they happened. On a smaller scale, the family memories and documentation that are possible is such a gift.
One moment on a walk through our neighborhood that might have otherwise been forgotten, but with the photograph will be remembered for our nice family time spent together and of course, for the beautiful golden light.
