Capturing Moments of Long-Lasting Relationships
When I first started my photography journey, I wasn’t sure how to approach people with my services. So, I decided to do what pretty much every photographer does starting out…shoot with family and friends. It’s amazing when you look back on your old work and see how far you’ve come. I sometimes feel bad that I even provided amateur photos from when I started but that’s not what the people care so dearly about even worried about. All the cared about was the moment…yea some of those photos may have a bit too much vibrancy and a lot of contrast but it was the love behind it.
I am beyond amazed and blessed, that I am routinely approached to capture the moments of those who I’ve grown up with. Sure, you want to make every image you take perfect but it makes it so much different with those you’ve grown up with. You want to make everything perfect for them as if you’re returning all the love, they’ve given you through the years. I’ve had to privilege to photograph these awesome human beings whether it be a happily ever after next to the beach or mansion…the loving bond of a mother and son…a baby girl looking at her family as if the whole world is in her eyes…a proposal underneath a gorgeous sunset…or even husband and wife welcoming a new child. These moments aren’t just important to them, but they are to me and I cherish them every day.
I love what I do, but it’s not for the fame or glory but to see someone you care about smile or cry is the greatest prize I could ever ask for. I look forward to making more grin grins and tears in the future.
