One of the best things social media has given us is the ability to sneak a peek into each other's lives when something special happens. It also keeps us in touch and connected. Meet Tommy Colbért from Massachusetts. Tommy and I met years ago at WPPI, and there's simply a nice friendship. That friendship is often fueled by what he shares on Facebook.
This morning, while catching up on what people have been sharing, I ran across this post from Tommy. It simply said, "Sometimes the stars align, and I have both my children at the beach together... and I didn't forget my Nikon this time."
I immediately caught Tommy on a Facebook IM and asked for permission to share these, but I want to explain why.
They're the perfect reminder of why we're all in this business - to capture memories. Sadly, too often we forget to capture our own. I don't know Tommy's daughters, but that doesn't change the smile the images put on my face - not just because they're fun, but because they capture one of those perfect days for a Dad with his kids!
Of course, it doesn't hurt that Tommy is a terrific photographer and regardless of the subject matter, you'll always find his signature passion for imaging. Click on any image to visit Tommy's website for more great images.
