About Artista Photography

IMG_2398-Crop-SmallSometimes photoshoots have their little delays…

Every year I take out all of the old photos my great grandparents, my grandparents and my parents took of my family. It never fails to bring a smile to my face whenever I look at them. There’s something so special about being able to hold a photograph from the early 1900’s and being able to see family members you never had a chance to meet and see the ones who are no longer with us. By looking at the photos they’re brought back with us as all of our memories of them come roaring back.
When I was growing up, I never understood my family’s fascination with saving every photo. I didn’t get it. I felt, “Well, why would you save that? We were just there?” It wasn’t until I got older that I understood why. The feelings I get as I reminisce about the special moments of my life is one of the major reasons I got into photography. It makes me feel happy. I want to bring those feelings to every one of my clients look at my photos every year just as I do when I take out my old family photos.
