Some forever not for better, some have gone and some remain…

Webster defines “nostalgia” as a wistful or excessively sentimental yearning for return to or of some past period of irrevocable condition.

I am a nostalgia junkie. Maybe that’s why I am so passionate about photography.

Kodak created a billion dollar industry by giving people a tool to feed their nostalgia. We don’t take pictures because we want to know what we’re seeing now… we already know that. We take pictures because it makes us feel good to know that years later, when nostalgia for that moment comes around, we’ll be ready.

Take pictures of the people, things, experiences in your life now so that years later you’ll be able to look back at the concrete evidence of their existence. Archive your images well so that in later years, you and the generations after you will have whatever the newest equivalent of shoe boxes full of photographs will be.

For the important moments in life, the milestones, the once in a lifetime experiences – a professional photographer can prove to be one of the wisest investments you can make. Hiring one will allow you to enjoy and be in the moment – while still capturing it for posterity.

Whether you capture the images on your own, or hire someone to do it for you – make sure you’re documenting your life to meet future nostalgic desires. Pictures of the people and things you love as well as the life you’re living may seem trivial now, but with time they’ll become priceless reminders of who you are and where you’ve been.
