It has been a rough week here at erika snow photography.
I fully understand that life has it’s ups and downs and sometimes the trials that we face are for our benefit to learn and grow from.
I am in the middle of a trial. An attack has been made against me and never in my life have I felt so assaulted.
It has clouded my thoughts and made me feel sad and disappointed that people can treat others in such a horrible way.
It’s times like this that you start to ask yourself the tough questions.
Is it worth it?
Is it worth the time away from my family?
Is it worth the late nights spent editing?
Is it worth the loss of sleep?
When I started my business I never aspired to be famous, or to have my work on the cover of magazines.
I wasn’t interested in teaching workshops or creating templates or actions to sell.
My mission was to provide moms and dads and grandmas images of their beloved babies and children that when they first see them they make them smile. When they look back on them in a year they will be so glad that there is a tangible memory of that time in their child’s life and in 5 years they will think it is the best money every spent.
Because I personally know that time goes by too fast and memories fade.
When I look back at a session like baby Owen’s it remindes me why it is all worth it.
Creating images of a newly formed family…
A new Aunt who flew across the ocean just to make it in time for the birth of her first nephew…
A picture of a father and son that brings a new mom to tears…
These are the images and experiences that I want for myself and that I strive to give to my clients.
Thank you little Owen for bringing peace to this photographer who has had a bad couple of days.
