I have always loved to take pictures. My first job at age 16 was at our local newspaper, as a receptionist, but the owners soon included me in taking photos, darkroom and writing articles. A terrible event in my personal life brought back a love of taking photos that I had not been pursuing to any great extent for years. My only child passed away at the age of 22. He was such a wonderful guy and I am blessed that God chose me to be his mom. Reeling from his death, I sought some sort of diversion, something to get my mind focused on anything besides my great loss. After a bad fall, I had to have surgery on my knee. While recuperating, my husband, knowing I was stir crazy at home, took me out for drives in the country. We bought a new digital camera and the old love was reborn! I soon gave him that camera and purchased a better one. We are still driving up and down old country roads, visiting new places, and traveling when we can. My family now calls me the Family Historian, because my photos of them are preserving our times together. Believe me, I have practiced on them all!
My husband, David and I, when out shooting, try to find the unusual thing that some people might not think of as being beautiful. But all of God's creation is beautiful and breathtaking in its own way. When photographed, it allows you to take a second look and see the beauty that might have gone unnoticed. Anything from nature, including birds, wildlife, insects, butterflies, old barns, sunsets, and landscapes can be found in our photography. My husband also began taking photographs, something he had always been interested in, but had never pursued much at all. He has a great eye for interesting shots and has been a great help to me in shooting family shots, weddings, etc. We have had many laughs and great adventures through our picture taking excursions.
I have named my photography “Moments by Kathy and David Photography”. This name seemed fitting after my son's death because as I grieved, I craved photos of him. I thought as I looked at them how precious they were to me now, and how each one was only a “moment” compared to the length of his life. Each photograph we take, each shot we capture at a precise interval, is only that way for a MOMENT in time. It may never come again, or at least not in that same way. My moments with my son were the most beautiful times of my life. I hope that in looking at our creations, our photography, you find something in these photos that touches you and makes you want to own that “Moments by Kathy and David” photograph and cherish it like we do. Hang it in your home, your place of business, or gift it to a friend....but let those “moments” continue to be enjoyed by others. Thank you for looking at our photos and may God bless you.
