Where did 2013 go?! I am thankful for each and every one of you who helped make this past year truly great. 2014 is already shaping up to be an adventure; here’s a little peak at what’s coming up!
1. Going back to school. That’s right, I actually signed up and paid for a class. I’m excited to start the last two years I need to get my Bachelors.
2. Capturing what I love. I love photographing everything so sometimes I feel like I can take on more than what’s actually possible. Because I will be in class I know I need to pass on more referrals and shoot only what I 100% love. I wasn’t expecting to shoot my first birth until next month but was on back up for a friend and ended up getting the call. Being present at a birth and capturing such precious moments filled me with such joy that I know 100% this is what I am supposed to be doing. That means I won’t be taking any weddings for 2014.
3. Shooting more film. I picked up film for the first time in six years this past summer and fell back in love. My first portrait session on film happened this winter and is one of my favorites. The colors and tones were perfect and I felt so much more alive shooting it (that sounds cheesy but it’s true.) I really slowed down and got more usable shots because of it. My goal for this year is to incorporate more film into portraits and eventually switch over completely (hopefully by summer.)
And of course a post isn’t complete without a photo so here’s a sneak peek from the first birth story I had the honor of capturing.
