H O M E
I recently posed this question to a friend, "Where is "home?"
The definition of "home" can widely differ from where you pay mortgage or rent. Is "home" where you were raised, or where your family lives? A neighborhood bar, or a place you've traveled to where certain adventures were had?
After a little banter, we agreed that home is indeed where the heart is, but also a nostalgia inducing connection brought on by a barrage of pleasant memories. While, where I currently reside feels more like home than any place I've ever laid my head, and maybe a dive just a few blocks away ... I have a deep connection to The Bay, down south of Houston. There is something incredibly calming about warm, salty air gently sweeping your face and the faint sound of a seagull overhead. It's home. It's where I grew up and embarked upon adulthood. It's where loved and lost, and created the most precious and everlasting memories of my life.
You can imagine I jumped at the opportunity to photograph this cute little family by The Bay. BONUS: I enlisted my childhood friend to assist with reflector and bag hauling duties. (Thanks, Boom-Boom!)
Most importantly, my client chose this spot because this is a place where they spend a lot of time together. Thus, making the perfect backdrop for their family photos. When you sit on a boardwalk that you've ran down a 100 times, it becomes more than a just place, or "cool spot" to have your photograph taken. It's representative of you, your heart, and H O M E.
The photograph becomes more than a piece of art. It's a memory captured infinitely. Therein lies, my photographical initiative.
