Frank Frost Photography: albuquerque photographer » an albuquerque photographer who loves what he does

Beginning and Ending

A very wise woman once told me that the purpose of parenthood is to work yourself out of a job. Now that might sound good printed on the side of a coffee mug, but the reality of that statement is much harder, especially when your child has one foot out the door.

This session of a father and his two sons was taken two weeks before his eldest left for Turkey as part of a 9 month international student exchange program. Nine months is a long time to be away and the impending separation was foremost in their minds. Midway through the session, Frank asked them to go on ahead down the road. As they began to walk, dad put his arms around the boys, as he had a thousand times before. As they continued on, laughing and talking, Frank snapped this image.

A road. An unknown future. Two sons on the verge of adulthood. And a very proud father, still protecting, still loving, still guiding.

It’s a powerful image.

We Love What We Do

They say if you love what you do for a living, you’ll never work a day in your life.

We couldn’t agree more.

At Frank Frost Photography, we don’t consider what we do as “work.” Sure, we spend countless hours a week on our art; meeting with clients, photographing sessions, enhancing and printing photographs; we push ourselves and our abilities by furthering our education and staying on the cutting edge of changes in our industry-but it’s never considered “work.” We are thrilled to be able to do what we love everyday: Photographing People. Now, photographing people goes beyond just taking a picture; it’s a relationship we build with our clients. It’s staying in touch with those we photograph, thus, the reason for the blog.

Now, I know what you’re thinking, “Come on, Cheri, you already have a website. You even have a website dedicated to high school seniors. Isn’t that enough?”
Well, no.

See, although we change our website frequently, we wanted an online method of communicating with our clients in a more personal way: to share stories about the amazing people we photograph; to keep you updated on new products and current events; to share a little bit more than just a website.

We hope you check back often. Our blog is always open.
