I love to offer communion mini-sessions as a way for clients to get some sweet portraits of their child’s first holy communion. This year was such a beautiful communion season.
This family was gifted a newborn session with me for their baby shower, isn’t that a great gift? I loved meeting this family, they were so kind and I loved that their dog wanted in on the action.
These past few months was in season of reflection and quiet, like the seeds under the fertile soil waiting for their chance to emerge in the bright sunlight of spring, gosh that was corny. I am not a writer, I am not eloquent lol.
This winter was a hard one for me. My anxiety was pretty rough and I was feeling not good enough, uninspired, depressed. So I took a break. I put my camera away and rarely touched it, I stepped away from posting my work on social media, and I hibernated from my photography.
I worried that by not posting on social media my clients would forget me, think I had quit. I decided to that I needed something that planted a seed in me, or lit a fire again. I enrolled in a course on film called Everyday Films and I began picking up my camera again. I slowly started feeling myself getting inspired again, excited again, not just about this new passion of film making but also about still photography.
Sometimes in our lives I think we need a period of quiet, to reflect on where we have come and to decide on where we want our path to lead.
I am sharing with you my final project from my workshop. It is always scary sharing something new but I also know that sometimes you have to trust the magic of beginnings.
At this point I am so behind on blogging, I wouldn't be surprised if Mr. M is now in college lol. I photographed big brother when he was just a tiny newborn five years ago, and now I got the privilege to capture the newest member of the family. He arrived a month early so he surprised us all.
The clouds on this night at the beach were so amazing. I love how the sky changes so much, and the sky on this particular night was just so beautiful! I have photographed this sweet family since big brother was a baby, and I love watching their personalities and height grow. Thank you for letting me capture your fun family again.
