Photography has been a passion of mine since I can remember. Being the oldest sister of 3 girls, I have memories of sneaking into my dads office & grabbing the polaroid off the shelf to snap photos of my younger sisters, “say cheese” I would say, then we would all wait anxiously as we watched the grey photo that popped out to come to life….
I had my fair share of disposable cameras as a child & I would beg my mother to take me to have them developed as soon as I snapped the last photo. It was always so exciting to see how they would come out ! My mother gave me my first film camera one year for Christmas & I couldn’t have been more excited. I went through rolls of film like crazy capturing any & everything. Every trip into town for groceries also required a trip to the local 1- hour photo, double prints were a must just in case I had to give any away. I just couldn’t bear the thought of giving away one of my photos without an original copy for myself. I started collecting Albums & Prints. At home I would do make-shift photo shoots with my sisters & best friends, creating back drops with props & bright lights with fans to make our hair blow in the wind, things got pretty serious in those days & most of those photos from back then are priceless.
Not much has changed, I still enjoy capturing moments in my life that are most precious to me from behind the lens of a camera. So much about the process is different now. We have reached the digital age, technology is rapidly changing & enhancing everyday. If you take a photo you dislike you can just delete it & with a push of a button its gone forever. Sometimes that delete button is a little too close for comfort for me, especially when pressed by accident! I recently deleted an entire vacation album of mine by accident & tears fell like rain. After some seriously hard praying & investigating I was able to retrieve those photos but not all, some are still lost, luckily I got most of them back. There really is something to be said about the days of disposables, film, 1-hour photo & dark rooms . Although those days are not completely gone, like most I’ve joined the rest of the world in digital photography.
I will forever thank my mother for supporting the interest/obsession I had as a child & for those countless trips to the 1-hour photo. My love & passion for photography is a hobby that started in my adolescent years that I don’t plan on giving up anytime soon. I hope that when I am older I can use these photos as a reflection of my life & hold them as tangible evidence that all these precious moments I hold so close to my heart actually occurred.
