The Moments of a Day

Each day gives you little moments of beauty that you couldn't have foreseen: light shines in a particular way and brightens a room, a clear glass casts a sparkling shadow, florescent lights mix with clouds on a window pane, and grass pokes aggressively out of metal on the sidewalk. I photograph for this very reason, to capture the unique or mundane beauties that take place around me everyday. There have been times when I wished I could've seen the future. However, it is truly a blessing that we can't because everyday we are given the opportunity to be pleasantly surprised by something beautiful we stumble across.

Extra Reading:
Anna Jaye: Jaye, who shoots primarily weddings and engagements, is also a Portland, Oregonian! Wedding photographers often get a bad rap, but their jobs are very important; they capture a day devoted to the bonding between two people. I don't know about you, but every time I look at wedding photography, I get a little bit happier. I also like Jaye's work because she has a documentary, rather than an overly posed, style of photographing. Go check out her work and give some wedding photographers some love!
