My little family and I went to the Rocky Mountains in Colorado for a much (MUCH) needed vacation. After 6 years of my husband working to get his Bachelor’s degree, my starting of a new business, & us starting a family as well in that time, we were exhausted!
We had so much fun! It was a wee bit of a drive from Texas, but we made the most of our time by stopping and checking out the beautiful scenery. Not to mention all the really cool things to do between here and there.
Naturally, I took my camera on this trip, and naturally I have a billion photos. For some reason I really wanted to bring my very first dslr camera that started my business with me. Not my most up to date one, or fancy, but she has always done the job so she went with us. (Yes, my camera is a ‘she’! ha!)
Here are a few unedited pics, sooc from our trip.
A few of these my husband wouldn’t stop the car for, but I managed. ;) Now to plan next year’s trip. Have a great one!
We have finished the edits. Recharged our batteries. Here is a video of the beautiful bride and her loving groom. Much love to Kelly and Rich as they start their life together. God Bless and a lifetime of happiness to you both.
I just finished up a beautiful wedding. The sunset was the theme, but due to some unfortunate weather, the ceremony was moved inside. The location didn’t matter in the end though, since it was a gorgeous and heartfelt evening between two people who were madly in love with each other. (I am not going to lie, I teared up during the vows). Here is a preview photo with many more to come.
One thing I’ve learned since beginning my photography journey is having other photographer friends is a MUST!
I have found a lot of photographers (not all) decide not to have other photographers as part of their inner circle (for whatever reason, but I’ve found their concern for competition in the market is the biggest one). It’s the opposite for so many though. I have several other photographer friends, and we actually get each other work. One of us does Newborn photography, and one doesn’t, so there is a referral. We work on projects together. We give each other tips and tricks to become better photographers. We SUPPORT each other. That is the biggest part. They get it because this is their profession, too. When I go out and try something new, am so nervous I am shaking, I will suddenly see messages coming from my photographer friends. “You can do this! You will be great!”. It gives me that push, and that is amazing to me.
Don’t be afraid to reach out to your community in whatever endeavor you choose. There are people who want you to succeed. I promise.
Leave me a comment. Tell me where your support system is. Ask questions. Let’s discuss!
Stay determined and amazing, y’all!
At the beginning of the year I posted about taking my photography business in a new direction. As of the last several weeks, I have seen a new path being formed with my business.
Up until 2015, I stuck to family photography with some events thrown in there. As of now, I have branched out into wedding photography, and I love it! The fear I felt weeks before the unknown evaporated once I got into the process of taking pictures, my focus solely on obtaining the best photos I could take. I know with time I will improve dramatically, but I consider my first wedding to have gone WAY better than it did in my head.
Now, off to finish up my edits.
Go and be adventurous. Try something new with your photography. Learn. Grow. Enjoy.
