“investment” rather than “pricing”?

Why is this page titled “investment” rather than “pricing”?  When someone hires a photographer to help them with the art of creating lasting images, they are thinking of the future and the future always requires an investment of some kind.   

We all remember today because we are in it and seeing it.  But when today becomes last week, last month, or last year, we tend to forget about what today looks like, and it is the images that we took the time to create that will help us remember.  Remembering is so important and that is why, “It Takes Pictures To Stop Time”. 

As a professional photographer, I take seriously the privilege to be the one photographer to help you create these memories.  I invest hours in studying and perfecting my craft.  I have spent thousands of dollars acquiring the right equipment and I work hard to find unique locations to help you create the image to be cherished and passed down from generation to generation.   My desire is not to be your photographer for just one occasion but to build a relationship with you that allows me to photograph you and your family for many years.  Thank you for allowing me to be part of this process.
