Have you ever had someone thank you for something you had done YEARS ago? I just had that recent experience via the internet.
In my high school days of photography I had done engagement pictures for the friend of a friend. OK that was a many moons ago :) Apparently the young lady asked my friend if she was still in contact with me and told her to thank me.... OK for what you wonder. Her husband died some years ago from cancer and she still remembers me taking those pictures- because she loves them. WOW!!! I am floored and deeply touched that she remembers who did those. It reminds me of why photography is one of the most powerful gifts you can have.. it lasts forever and reminds us of times gone by and can evoke emotions that moves us deeply.
This my friends is why I do what I do.
