A few weeks ago I was deciding whether or not to offer Easter Minis. They have never appealed to me; plastic eggs, live unsanitary animals (however cute!), AstroTurf. Whether you know me personally or follow my photography, there’s a good chance that you know those things are the furthest from my style. “I solemnly swear never to use AstroTurf..”
Art is subjective, everyone is different. What looks amazing to someone might look terrible to someone else. Every photographer has their own style, and every person has their favourite photographer.
I pride myself on capturing natural, timeless portraits. There have been hits and misses along the way (everyone starts somewhere). But as I continue to grow and evolve, like any artist, my style has become more distinctive and more “me”. It is about what makes me happy and my creative freedom, rather than worrying about what other photographers are doing or what people will think of the photographs.
It wasn’t until a someone told me they liked my style that I realized I had one, and then proceeded to have this revelation.
I’m not sure if anyone even reads my blog posts but these personal (albeit rambling) ones are my favourite to write. They’re raw, they probably have spelling or grammar mistakes, but they’re very much me. I love when I discover a new blog and after reading a few posts I feel like I have gotten to know the writer. That is what I aim to do with all of my posts. And if you are reading them (I hope you are!) I’d love for you to leave comments and feedback. You’re getting to know me, let me get to know you!
Till next time,
(Oh ps. I am offering SPRING Mini-Sessions on March 29th, my last minis until Halloween. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.)
