|| FREEDOM TO CREATE ||

As a photographer I constantly find myself in a cycle of needing to create. Without any rules. Without anyone telling me what they want. But just to create and play.

In these moments I feel like I can breath. They allow me to explore and try things that I might not otherwise do with a client. I can play with my editing, play with posing, play with makeup…

I have only done a handful of personal projects over the past 7 years I have been shooting professionally. I have always desired to do more, but have never made an effort to create the time and space for them. Until now… I have decided that this year (and coming year) will be the year to dream, create, and shoot personal projects that will allow me to push myself to a new artistic level. And that excites me!

As artists and specifically photographers, I truly believe that we need to do this. We need this outlet. I have found with the handful of personal projects I have done in the past has enabled me produce even more stunning and artful portraits for my clients. Out of these personal projects produces new ideas and stretches my skills as a photographer on many levels.

One of the areas that I am beginning to venture in is in the art of makeup. I have always been fascinated with makeup artists and decided to give my hand a try at it for my personal projects. For this session I wanted to play with the beautiful summer light we were having. So I called up my daughter’s babysitter and asked her if she wanted to model for me. :) We had a blast! I had the opportunity to try my hand at makeup artistry and was really pleased with the end result. I hope you enjoy this little sneak peak into one of my creative shoots! Enjoy!

Sweet Elle | Duvall Child Photographer

I love what I do…

I have been photographing Elle since she was in her mommy’s tummy for her maternity portraits, and then throughout her first year and every year after that… I have had the privilege of watching her grow to become such a beautiful and special little girl.

Being a photographer, for me, is not about just “taking pictures” and getting paid for it. It is about documenting the lives that are so beloved and journeys that we all take. It is about the emotion that is wrapped up in every photograph that will be cherished for a lifetime. It is about the moments that make you stop in your house and gaze upon the images that adorn the walls and halls… THAT is what being a photographer is  all about for me.

I love what I do.

I consider it an honor and privilege every time I am invited to be a part of someone’s life. And I thank God for this gift that I am able to share with so many.

Have I mentioned that I love what I do?

Wowza! This past month has been one FULL and FUN month! It has been so fun to see so many returning clients again as well as meet so many fresh new and beautiful faces! And I wanted to share all that has been taking place these past couple of weeks in one big sneak peek post.

I have been brainstorming new and exciting things that I can’t wait to implement for 2014! One of our newest endeavors is providing Newborn Workshops for aspiring photographers! I have been teaching 1 on 1 Mentoring Sessions over the past 3 years and am so excited to create a classroom experience where more photographers can come together and learn about the importance of newborn photography safety.

In the meantime, here is a little sneak peek of what has been taking place! Enjoy!
