When I started my photography business a year ago, my first session was this little one’s mom’s maternity session! ❤️ I had no idea where my business was going to go. I had this plan of doing elopements and adventure couples, and I definitely didn’t think I would be a family photographer!⠀
Fast forward to today, and I’ve had about twenty family sessions this past month. I didn’t realize how much kids and families are my heart...but man, they are! I feel like as a mom I just get this joy out of taking photographs of other children for their parents to keep forever. I mean...I can’t even explain it & I’m almost about to cry...but what a freaking honor to be a part of people’s memories like that! I am truly blessed!⠀
And I didn’t realize that photographing kids would ever be something I would be good at...but it turns out I am! It’s not just the picture taking though, it’s the patience you have to have with kids, because photographing them is difficult, don’t get me wrong! My two year old won’t stand still for a photo no matter how many Kit Kats I bribe her with 😂 I love it though! I love being able to capture their childlike innocence and energy! Having to chase them around or follow their lead doesn’t bother me at all!⠀
I say all of this, because here I am a year later photographing this adorable little one, and my business has taken a direction that I had no plan for it to...but it is the right direction! When you’re following your passion I really believe life will take you where you’re meant to go!
