This is what photography is about to me. A memory that will mean something to me and the people around me for years to come. It’s simple and straightforward, but it’s more powerful than anything “created” by a hotshot photographer with an agenda his clients won’t understand.
Sure, I’m biased, these are my boys, but a moment like this, created or not, will always, ALWAYS be more important to me, or anyone with a family, compared to the posed contrived shot with a fancy video light or a soft box.
Don’t get me wrong, I pose people like there’s no tomorrow if I have to and I’m about to buy myself some fancy video lights, but in the end it’s important to remember that shots like this one will always win.
