I love the change of seasons. Summer to fall, fall to winter, winter to spring, with every change in seasons there is a freshness to life. During times like this Abbie and I love to spend at least some time reflecting about where we are at in life. Sometiemes it is during a dinner away from the kids, or it may be on a walk during the evening, or any other moment that we can stop for a bit.
Lately we have been talking about why we love what we do as photographers. It hit me today, when thinking about what I wanted to write, that it is people like Stephan that make us love what we do. As photographers we get the awesome privilege to be a part of people's lives during the seasons that are most important to them. We get to see them at their best. We get to witness it, and we build a connection with these people through the images that we capture.
Stephan is that type of person. The guy who reminds you why you love what you do. He is a diverse person with interests in all different areas. It was great to hear about the musicians who inspired him to play the guitar, the song that made him stop and say, "I want to play that." Stephan impressed us. People are a treasure, and it is so great to be a part of their lives.
