Oh it's just so amazing how I take journeys with women from before getting married, to getting married, to baby bumps, to having their babies in their hands! And with these life-changing events happening to them, I take my work to heart.
My service as a photographer is not just for the sake of aesthetics or for posting images on Facebook. I really believe that it's much, much more than that. It's more about knowing that the images that I take will live and last past my lifetime. Rafa will probably show these to her children or to her grandchildren, and their children and grandchildren after. I understand that the photographs will soon be treasures of wonderful memories that will be priceless for Nyke, Rafa, their family, and the generations after. And how amazing is that, that at one point, I was there taking these pictures. And many years later, people will look and remember and feel that life - past, present and future is precious, bountiful, and wonderful. I really feel so honored to be part of all that.
