the Past and Present

181021_Dovercourt_2200b.jpg

Whenever I do a Housestories shoot I am photographing the present - the high-chair next to the wooden table, the art on the fridge, the little commonplace details that make up a home - but in the back of my head I know that there is time in the future when all of these things represent a beautiful distant memory.

Someday Angela and Stuart will see their two children, Asher and Vivian, grow up and become wonderful people, with their own beautiful families, their own careers, their own amazing lives; but there will always be that place in time when Asher would join them in bed on Saturday mornings, and Vivian learned to crawl and discover the world, the precious moments when they were all laughing together during bath time (and the precious moments when both kids were finally in bed).

The present always seems to last forever, but when the future does come, I hope that when they open this album it is beaming with light.
