A Symbol of Love

29 01 2008

There are few things in life better than love. It doesn’t really matter who it is between, as long as there is love. As a photographer, I really enjoy capturing that love, whether it be in a child’s smile and hug, a loved one’s eyes or adoring gaze of an animal companion. However, when the love of two people results in the creation of a new life… there is something much deeper.

I was privileged during a recent photo shoot to photograph a couple a few weeks before the baby’s delivery. In the rush of life, it is easy to overlook things important to us — even when it is staring you in the face. Things were busy at this couple’s home as we set up for several shots, but as soon as they came together to pose for their photographs, I saw a transition from the frantic to the serene. Nothing was said, but it was felt.

A picture may be worth a thousand words, but this one only says one: Love.
