Technology Changes; Prints Don’t

One of the last things you want to hear after photographing a gorgeous family session in the bosque is the voice of your studio manager saying, “We have a problem–we have no internet and the server is down.”

That is exactly the news I received on my way back to the studio from this morning’s session. It wouldn’t stop us from shooting, thank goodness, but with the server down, our screening appointments would have to be rescheduled, and all production work would come to a screeching halt.

And as we ran around the studio trying to fix things on our end and ultimately having to call in our IT team, it was not lost on me that the photographs on the wall weren’t phased in the least. Same goes for the albums. I think I might have even heard them chuckle.

They hang on the wall, without a care in the world about servers or internet or hard drives or the cloud. They don’t even care if the electricity goes out. They are cherished reminders that technology changes, but prints don’t.

Because really, it shouldn’t require electricity to see a photo of someone you love.

Lollipop Smiles

They are a very simple candy-nothing more than a sweet little disk attached to a white cardboard stick. But there’s something about a lollipop that lights up a child’s face. I think “Lollipop” is kid-speak for Happiness.

The Job of a Parent

I’ve heard it said that the job of a parent is to work oneself out of the job–to give your child the tools that he/she needs so that needing YOU is no longer necessary.
I’m not sure that’s true.
Because although we’ve reached an age where our children don’t need us to feed or dress them, we never stop being a parent. We never stop guiding…we never stop worrying…we never stop carrying them in our heart wherever we go.
I like to think that is part of the job.

Albuquerque Public Schools Selfless Seniors Class of 2015

There are unsung heroes walking the halls of high schools everywhere-really great kids who do the right thing not for praise or attention, but because it’s the right thing to do. Some have overcome incredible obstacles; some have persevered with amazing determination and courage; some have succeeded despite the odds. But one thing they all have in common is that they are high school seniors who are leaving the world a better place by their acts of unselfishness, kindness, and caring.

We think this need to be celebrated, which is why, together withAlbuquerque Public Schools, the Selfless Senior Program was created.

It is with great pride that we present the Selfless Senior Class of 2015. We will honor these amazing human beings tomorrow afternoon at the awards presentation, and, just like every year, Cheri and I will tell ourselves not to cry. And, just like every year, we will anyway.

With such an incredible group of people…how could you not?

Congratulations to all the APS Selfless Seniors!
