I am not a movie watcher, I prefer T.V. shows, but there are some movies that just have my heart.
Certain movies I can quote line by line because I have worn out the VHS ...err I mean DVD.
One of those movies is "Where the Heart is"
I don't know if it is the part where she gives birth in Wal Mart or the fact that her best friends children are named after deserts but there is just something about that movie that I just absolutely love.
Last week I took some senior pictures for sweet Katelyn, while we were shooting her mom took some pictures of us working. As I looked at these pictures I started wondering where my photography passion started. Obviously my grandmother (read more about that here), but then it dawned on me! In the movie
"Where the Heart is" Natalie Portman's character wins a photography award for a photo she takes of her daughter after a tornado devastates their town.
That moment, that photo, is burned into my brain as the first time I connected emotion to photography. That image of Natalie Portman's little girl reaching for an American Flag a top a pile of debris truly showed me where my heart is, photography.
