I am photographing too much and posting too little. In my opinion it is a good problem to have! Although it does cause me some stress to think of the wonderful families I have photographed wondering if I am ever going to highlight their images. And then there is my personal work. So many images of my children that I adore. However I just have no idea what to do with or how to have them be seen and appreciated.
Is it important if they get seen? I often wonder in our connected world how many images is too many. When I scroll my Instagram feed, my mind is just overwhelmed with the visual onslaught of it all. I know my children will appreciate when they are older having photographs of their childhood and yet I wonder, do they need 400 a year? 1,000 a year? I wonder if I shoot that many… I should count, because I undoubtably have time for that. Ha!
Anyway, this is really just a lot of rambling as I fly on an airplane to another new amazing city that I can’t wait to delve into and capture. And produce more images in. More images that I will edit and catalog, rename and organize into folders. Some I will delete, some I will post. I will keep some on a hard drive to hopefully one day be made into a book that I can hold in my hands and say “I made this.” I made this life, this book, this image, this moment. That is why I continue to photograph even though I feel I cannot share it all or see it all : In order to record a moment that I have witnessed. To be a witness to a moment. Hope you enjoy some recent moments. (just for the record recent = last six months) HA!
