I’ve been a photographer for 8 years. I’ve learned so much along the way about cameras, lenses, lighting equipment, radio transmitters, etc. In the end though, all of photography comes down to storytelling to me. My camera freezes time. Really. It’s amazing that way. Someday, long after my career has passed, the images I created for families will live on. This day at the park with the Smith family was one of those magical frozen-in-time moments. I was there to capture the exact moment they learned that baby #2 was a girl. It was a happy day for all of us.
