Photos are Magic


Not so long ago these photos were taken on a family photo shoot. The day and the location was ordinary, but as I was laying there having a moment with my beautiful daughter I thought that these sequence of photos will not only be important to me, they will be treasured by my daughter, her daughter and maybe many more daughters after that. That is the MAGIC of a photo.

I sit now with my father who is piecing together his heritage and the few images he manages to find and rare and precious. I feel blessed to live in an age where the advancements in technology allows us to record and document our lives. That connections to family and heritage will be easily accessed for generations to come.

What would we do without photos, they tell stories, ignite memories, make us laugh, make us cry, they inspire us, teach us, strengthen families and make our houses homes.
