My heart goes out to those who live in New Jersey and New York. We all get up every day and go to work, grocery shop, take the kids to school. We all have so much to do. Then out of no where a storm. No one expected it to be bad or life threatening. Homes are lost, belongs are swept away. When it is happening all we care about is that the people we love are with us. It's after the storm that we stop and take stock and the things we miss the most are the photos of the moments in your life. I remember listening to a women who restores photos for a living, who went to Japan after the Tsunami. She told stories about how important that seemed to everyone. It wasn't the furniture or TV but it was the photos of Grandma who has passed away that seemed so very important to those who had lost their homes in Japan.
We should always remember, it doesn't have to be a major event in your life, anytime is a good time, to have a photographer capture your family, friends and loved ones.
