Event Photography-Making Memories
Legacy at Georgetown
The work and art of a photographer is more sacred than most of us realize.
The images captured by portrait photographers and event photographers become priceless memories, and are sometimes the last memories created. The images become something to be held onto forever.
How Do You Define Time?
Merriam-Webster’s Dictionary defines time as a non spatial continuum that is measured in terms of events which succeed one another from past through present to future.
I see time as 'blocks of memories' with each block sitting upon and leaning along side another one. The blocks build upon another to tell a story. Images and photographs are like building blocks-each important on their own and yet together they create their own sacred story . When we look at an image we have memories of that ‘time.’
These memories ignite all our senses. In the case of the lovely holiday party at Legacy of Georgetown, I remember the sounds of the laughter, the feel of hugs, the sharing of smiles, the excitement over the upcoming holidays and the aroma of the prime rib as it came out of the oven. The event was also an opportunity to raise funds for Family Elder Care. I saw faces who have been around for many holidays, and I could only imagine what memories and blocks of time from holidays of the past floated through their minds. There are so many joys in event photography for me. It was even more fun because beautiful donated wreaths were auctioned. I was happy to take one home!

Building Blocks of Memories
I had the honor of photographing this wonderful event and will return in a few weeks for a special Photo Day for the residents and their families. You’ve got to love people who take care of one another like Legacy at Georgetown and Family Elder Care supported one another so they can continue to do the wonderful work they do. Of course, what they do for the community is a beautiful thing too!
