Thanks Giving

Tamara Lackey —  November 21, 2012

There are a ridiculous amount of things to be thankful for daily. The trick, of course, is not in finding what you’re thankful for; it’s in actually recognizing how much we already have. That’s one of the more powerful things about photography, as it is all about seeing what we have – and, more importantly, who we already are.

Today I am quite thankful for those who trust me to photograph them, their families, and their children, creating a narrative of their history as individuals and as people who are quite lucky to belong to each other.

This photograph is from a portrait session I shot just this morning:  a clear and bright chilly day and a gorgeous little girl, highlighting the autumnal beauty of Thanksgiving’s colors.

(That’s right, I totally wrote autumnal beauty.  Go ahead, say it out loud.  It sounds awesome, right?  AUTUMNAL BEAUTY.)

  7. With havin so much written content do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or copyright infringement?
    My website has a lot of completely unique content I’ve either created myself or outsourced but it appears a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my agreement. Do you know any ways to help protect against content from being stolen? I’d truly appreciate it.
