This makes me think about the inherent value in photographing people. In 50 years, will our grandchildren want to look at pictures of our perfectly styled coffee tables or will they want to look at pictures of us laughing with loved ones? For me, one of the greatest factors in deciding to pursue portrait photography had to do with the desire to document human connection.
I have to remember this when I shoot personally. I want photos of my loved ones. I want to be in photos with my loved ones. At the end of the day, they are what matters.
