I get asked all the time... Why do you love taking pictures? And I usually answer by telling them that its just always been a passion of mine... but its really so much more than that.
Ever since I was real young, I have annoyed my family by wanting to take lots of picture. Especially my younger brother. (who still hates for me to take his picture. lol) When I was little, I would take pictures of other pictures around the house and my dolls and toys. Back then is when there was just film and had to have it developed and every now and then I'll go through old pictures and I'll find some of those. They always make me laugh!
What I love most about taking pictures in not the pictures themselves... even though its so fun see how they turn out, but its the people I meet and the life long friendships I make. That's what I love most! I have met the most wonderful people through this awesome journey. Not just clients, but fellow photographers that I've met through workshops. I have become very close to some of them and we even work together. We second shoot for each other and its so nice because we trust each other, but most of all, we have a blast spending time together. There's nothing better than doing something you love with the people you love.
Capturing people's most precious moments, rather it their wedding day when they make that promise to love each other forever or holding their newborn baby for the very first time... those are the things that matter. I get to capture those timeless blessings and I'm so blessed that I get to be a part of that.
