In Search of Lost Time
Driving through downtown Providence, I see a phrase emblazoned on the wall of the Dean Hotel: "For a long time, I went to bed early". The line is from Proust's work, In Search of Lost Time, or also translated as Remebrance of Things Past. Proust's writing of involuntary memory (memories that are evoked by a particular taste, or smell or even sound) are the opposite of voluntary, where you seek to remember an event in time. Maybe it's the scent of roses, from a bouquet on your wedding day, maybe the smell of salt air or the sound of the sea from your summer stay at the ocean view house one summer.
When we photograph sessions our emphasis is as much about the experience as it is the portrait. A remembrance of the session that takes you back to the warm summer evening at the beach, or your wedding day should evoke the same memory as the image itself. Proust never finished his work, but we can create a portrait for you that evokes memories worth saving. The investment in time and money for a portrait gives back daily, and it's less expensive than you think. Set up an appointment today: http://www.armorandmartel.com/appointments
