Last year, I received a message from a friend’s sister. The message was about how she had been “stalking” my Instagram and how she absolutely loves my photography. I thought, Wow! that’s awesome, and then as I continued reading the message I read the words “Would you like to photograph my wedding in December 2018?” ……..Holy Shit Balls! ……….. A wedding!? ………….. Where you only get one day, …………one chance, ……… You can not stuff it up!
After thinking about it, quickly declining it, I then changed my mind and (crazily?) accepted it…. why? because I love taking photos, I adore capturing love, happiness and real connections. Why wouldn’t I want to take up the opportunity to capture one of the happiest, fun and romantic days of a couple’s life? This is why I get my camera out, this is why I take photos, this is why I love doing what I’m doing.
To be able to get as much experience in as I can leading up to the wedding, I’ve stepped outside my comfort zone and opened my lifestyle photography business. Since opening in January this year, I have already had quite a few sessions where I have had such beautiful clients creating memorable moments. From squishy little newborns to giggly, cheeky siblings, seeing how each person portrays their emotion of love towards one another is beautiful.
Whether it be photographing weddings, families or newborns I have found one real message in every photo and that is LOVE. I love photography and I love photographing Love. Love is what makes us happy and as some say love is what makes the world go round.
