It is funny. One of the things I love the most about photography is the ability to tell someones story from my perspective. All the attention to details, lighting, pulling out who someone is – all within the span of an hour. Maybe 90 minutes.
With that though comes a great sense of nervousness. At least with me, because a part of being a photographer is putting my emotions into my work and then sharing with all the world to see. Don’t get me wrong. I love it. That’s why I do it. But I’d be lying if I didn’t say every time I share a photo, I take a little breath and say, “Here I go”.
Realness of Life
Those of you who know me, know I am not afraid to share the “realness” of life. When you love something as much as I do – it’s hard not to be just a little nervous. Which is fine. That means what you’re doing matters. It means that you love what you’re doing. It means that you’re conscientious, and want to do a good job. It means you’re human. And I think we need a lot more of us to admit that we are human.
So, I hope they ooohhh and aaaahhh as much as I did and will share it with their family and friends!
