It’s a New Year, time to start dreaming!
As the new year comes again it gets me thinking about all the clients I’ve worked with. After over ten years photographing all sorts of special events it would be easy to get in a rut however it never gets tiresome meeting new people and being part of such meaningful events.
One thing that I strive to do with every photo shoot and wedding is capture timeless memories my clients will treasure for many years to come. My goal is to make sure you look back on your photographs and remember that time in your life and the emotions around the day as they were.
Just like anything, the photography industry evolves with the latest trends, but as an artist I think it’s important to stay true to your style. I’ve always told myself to do the work behind the camera, not on the computer; capture life as you see it, not how it’s edited. I constantly strive to grow as a professional artist and always want to improve on where I started, because that’s what also makes this job so fun.
As I look forward to 2017 and the years to come I will continue to work on my art, and focusing on capturing timeless memories. I am also pleased to announce an additional service that I’m calling “fantasy photos”. There are exciting tools and technologies in the photography world and it will be fun to add some fantasy into the mix. Let’s be honest; buying the latest equipment is pretty fun, and experimenting with it is even more fun!
So hear me out on my vision. I imagine my own daughter who is head over heals for Pegasus (flying unicorns). She will get all dressed up as if she is ready to fly away, complete with a special outfit, her hair done, and maybe even a touch of makeup. I’m going to bring her into the studio and do a photo session with her sitting on a saddle. She will think I’m absolutely crazy, but nothing new there. After our odd in-studio photo shoot I’ll bring my work to the computer. When I’m done, the result will be magical, with her flying on her Pegasus surrounded by all the visions from her dreams. I will then do what seems so foreign to some people…I’ll print a large format and frame it. I’ll wrap it up and give it to her as a gift, and I hope she cries happy tears over seeing in real life what she says she dreams about.
..stay tuned for the image and start asking your kids what they dream about!
