Today I am going to be honest, open, and raw.
Life can be really tough. Finding a balance for your family, kids, work, and then maybe yourself is not easy. I am starting to realize that there is no shame in being honest. Theres is no shame in being vulnerable. It is the beauty of being human.
So much time and effort goes into this job. From the time you book your session to the time I deliver your gallery, I will have put countless hours into your pictures. I spend days location scouting, finding inspiration, observing light, checking the weather, studying my camera, uploading, culling, editing, styling, researching. Of course I do all this with spit up on my shirt, dog hair on my pants, messy hair, and endless amounts of caffeine, all while the laundry piles up.
Because I want to give you more than pictures. I want to give you an experience. When you look at your images, I want you to remember how special that time in your life was. Even if it was hard, I want you to look at pictures that allow you to remember the hard times and the struggles, but focus on the beauty of it all.
So please, don't wait until you have the perfect outfit, or enough money, or more time. Just make it happen. Because you will want to remember these times for exactly what they are.
