Don’t ever lose your passion!

Somewhere along the way I lost my vision. I forgot who I was and why I started all of this to begin with. I got lost in a sea of styled sessions, mason jars and the latest fad. This isn’t what I wanted, its not where I saw myself. I love families and photographing them but I am not a portrait photographer. I don’t want to sit you in front of a backdrop. I’m not going to make sure every strand is placed perfectly in place. I want you to be real. I want you to play and interact with your kids. I want to capture emotion! Yes, I will still do some posed shots for your walls or Christmas photos but I don’t want that to be the majority of our time together. I want real candid emotions. I want to capture your life.

Our children are growing so fast before our eyes! I want you to remember these moments and keep them forever. I want to show who you are, really! I’m not out to create the flawless family portrait. Does that even really exist? Your kids are fun, they are messy and they are spontaneous.

So why am I telling you all of this? Because I want you to know I want a different type of session. I want to get back the drive, the passion that made me start it all to begin with. The past few months I have made a conscious effort to going back to the lifestyle photography I prefer. And I have been much happier!  Life is too short to be boring.

There are no rehearsals, you do not get to do this over. This is your life, unscripted.

I absolutely agree! The photo world is full of great photographers- doing amazing things in all different types of ways- sometimes I look at them and think wow- cool- maybe I should try, but in the end I love capturing life, plain and simple. And the truth is that the imperfect life is so incredibly beautiful in my eyes! I always imagine the lifestyle photos being the treasured ones on wedding slideshows in years to come! Way to do what you love!
