A few days after her portrait session, I visited this lady in the hospital to send my regards, and to show her the photographs we’ve taken. She looked so happy, but it would be the last time I see her in person.

A few weeks later, she passed on.

The people we photograph are not objects.
They are not lifeless shapes and colours,
they are not things we paste onto a background.

They are living, breathing people, people with feelings.
When we take someone’s photograph,
we are capturing a moment in life,
a proof of existence,
a reminder that she is beautiful.

Treasure every minute, every second of your time with people,
because there is life in front of you,
and life is beautiful.
