Hey guys my name is Mike Franklin, I’m a professional portrait photographer living in Spokane WA. I have been a professional photographer for more than a decade and the other day someone asked me why I became a photographer.
As I really thought about it. I honed in on this memory I recently had. I had come across a portrait of my grandfather who had passed away more than 20 years ago. It was a simple photo of him and my younger brother sitting on a bench outside his home.
The first thing it did was bring a smile to my face.
The second thing it did cause a rush of memories and emotions to come back to me that I had forgotten. Things like how he smelled and the sound of his voice. In the photo he held his head high, which reminded me of the pride he always took in every aspect of his life, from the perfect yard he kept to the snazzy way he use to dress. It’s funny looking a sheet of paper had the power to remind me of so many things forgotten.
That’s what I want for my clients. I want to create a moment the sparks memories. I want them to look back on their now adult children and remember the goofy way their son smiled or the way their daughter looked wearing braces during her senior portraits. It’s not just a picture of her in braces, it’s all the memories of you taking her to appointments and joy she felt when they were finally removed.
That’s my goal for you, when you see your portrait hanging on the wall years from now, I want you to have a wow moment. A moment that takes you back to a different time in your life. A time that you may have forgotten. Time is funny like that, as it marches forward, we naturally forget the little details of our life.
That’s what great portraits do, they pause a moment in time so we can revisit it whenever we want.
