I am imbued with such great joy with what I do. It is not only fun and rewarding to record memorable occasions, but also to share and talk about the process. "What's your favorite thing about photography?" I'm asked this question frequently, but it seems that I've answered it more frequently lately. I love the mechanics of picture day. I love drawing on my knowledge, experience, and techniques to create a unique photographic record of a special day. I love when clients walk away from the session with big smiles, having had fun when they thought picture time would be kind of a chore. But, most often it comes down to watching my clients as they see their image galleries for the first time in the studio. I love seeing that look on their faces when they beam at how beautiful their loved ones are and how amazing their images turned out. That's it. That's my favorite thing.
As June is upon us, we are immersed in wedding season which means brides and mammas looking forward to breathtaking, joyful, and emotional images from their special day. Being a wedding photographer can be the greatest fly-on-the-wall experience one can have. Nobody notices you, but you're right in the middle of everything recording the festivities for all to enjoy forever. I thought I'd share a little of the fun with you. We've already been hard at work this year and have many more happy days to document. For me that means plenty of smiles to come.
Here's a little of what we've been up to in the SSP family.
Until next time, find your joy. Creating beautiful images for you is mine!
