I want to talk about the importance of having your picture taken. It doesn't have to be anything fancy or staged, but just simply documenting who you are at this very moment.
For the longest time I have been the living breathing opposite of that sentimentality, always insisting to be behind the camera and never in front. I had somewhat of a revelation last week... I went out on a photo walk with a couple photographers and yeah, I had my picture taken. And while it was uncomfortable and at times embarrassing, I reminded myself of what I tell my clients all the time. You have nothing to worry about and you look great. I closed my eyes and jumped in, and I gotta say, I'm happy I did. As I look at the photos from this day I think about how much I've loved finding old pictures of my Nana in high school (twirling freakin' batons of fire might I add), or my dad back in his college days. Pictures, like little else, freeze that instant in time for someone else down the line to be able to join you in that moment. And isn't that what it's all about?
I hope to push myself out of my comfort zone and to continue to have in fun behind and in front of the camera. If you're ready to join on this adventure then drop a line, email me, or flag me down. I wanna start a portait revolution!
