Dad, Happy Birthday!!!

Capturing moments has always been a part of my life. My dad is an amazing photographer who taught me to see beauty in the small details of life. Seeing his face light up when he freezes that perfect moment in time, brings a smile to my heart. Photography has brought my dad so much joy, he loves reminiscing past trips, special occasions & little treasures that made him happy.

 I haven’t always appreciated his photography taste. When I was young, I didn’t understand why he took pictures of flowers, bugs or a bottle of hot sauce at a hole in the wall diner. I was in the mindset; it was a waste of film to not take pictures of people? Fast forward 10 years and I see the brilliance of capturing simplicity. I’m thankful to my dad for instilling in me to slow down, and value the splendors of the world <3.

I truly believe photography has been like therapy for my dad … he’s always been able to escape in God’s creation. I admire him so much for always finding joy in his “Tender Mercies.”

Happy Birthday to my best bud – you’re my hero dad & the foundation of Capturing Simplicity <3.
