Hold your loved ones like this may be your last photograph with them. Squeeze your babies against those pounds you keep saying you’ll lose. Wrap your gangly arms around your partner like you’re never letting go. Smile with your entire face. Laugh with all your breath. Kiss with your eyes closed. Say I love you too many times. It will still never be enough.



I can't claim to have written the above. It was taken from an article entitled, "I Can't Make You Beautiful."The article was written by a photographer who was talking about people having their photos taken and how perfect they wanted the result to be. For vain people like me, this quote is a lesson about what the photograph says. Does it say, "Wow, is she beautiful!" or does it say, "Wow, look at how she loves!" Food for thought for 2015.
