This week on FaceBook we posted a copy of a letter from a customer that was shared by a fellow photographer, Jeanine Thurston. It brought tears to my eyes and made me think a bit different about photography.
I love doing what I do. I take pride in making women feel beautiful and sexy and bring out their “private” side. But there is so much more to it.
Photos we create are not just pieces of paper. These works of art are memories. Frozen moments of our existence. Markings of our milestones. They represent our beauty, our love, our passion…
Everything we are in life will be remembered by our good deeds, but our memory will live through a photograph. Many years after we are gone, someone will look at the photo of us and say, “This is my great great great grandmother. She was a strong woman. Wasn’t she beautiful?”
When you think of a photograph in those long terms… don’t you want to leave one worth looking at?
Nowadays there are so many options to satisfy out photographic needs and wants. A 4X6 print does not cut it anymore. We bind our images into press printed books. Blow them up and frame them. Carve them into metal sheets or ceramic tiles. Today, I want to highlight one of the new products we offer here at Oni Studio.
