My very first blog... ever.
I've been putting this off for a looooong time. For several reasons. One being time. But the biggest being that I am scared as hell. What do I talk about? How big of a snooze fest will it be? But it's now or never. So I just decided to do this on a whim about 60 seconds ago.
Since I have springtime on the brain, I'm going to throw a little information your way about what I hope to get from my spring family sessions and beyond. Family sessions are one of my favorite types to do! One day, when I'm a brave and wildly successful photographer, I'll most likely shift my focus to a few specialized areas of photography and family sessions will be one of them! I love meeting and getting to know families, observing the different dynamics within and I just LOVE, LOVE, LOVE capturing special moments and bonds. In the past I've done a lot of "posed" sessions and my ultimate goal is to get away from that. I will always be sure to include several great "portrait studio poses" but I want the majority of my sessions to be about capturing the moments, the bonds and the love in your family. I've been studying up on the best way to do this, and thanks to the help of some pretty amazing people who have mastered the art of the genre of photography I'm most passionate about, I'm ready to start making some changes! It's exciting, it's risky and it's scary but it's where my heart is. It's the type of work that I look at and instantly feel connected. The people... it's like I know them and can feel their love. It's most certainly not "everyone look at the camera, flash your big smiles and say cheese" photography. It's real life. It's raw. And I love it. Hopefully you will too! So right now, you might think I'm crazy, but maybe, just maybe, you'd like to help me along this journey? Maybe what I'm saying inspires you. Maybe you're thinking, "this girl is on to something... her vision is awesome and it's just perfect for my family!" To quote a client of mine, she described her family as "perfectly imperfect" and I have to tell you.. .that's just exactly how I'd love people to describe my work! Because the way I see it; at the end of the day, that's exactly how we all are and my goal is to give you true moments, feelings and bonds captured for you to cherish always.
