I think we as photographers enter into the industry for our own reasons.
I entered in when I was a young teenager.
I had no knowledge, no training, skill…just a camera (that had to be plugged into a wall) and a mission on my heart.
I entered in because I thought my friends and family were beautiful. I wanted them to see his/her self the way I did.
I entered in because I love beauty.
I entered in because I love eyes. Every shade, every shape, (and if those lashes are long? OOF!)
I entered in because I love Love. I love catching sweet moments.
I love when light happens.
I love when magic happens.
And I love details. (Namely, floral details)
Has it always been easy? Nope. It’s still not.
Is it ridiculously rewarding? YES! There is NOTHING better than when they love the photos as much as I do, from the serious to the seriously silly.
That’s when my job is done. When hearts are softened, when smiles are real, and when beauty is experienced–inside and out.
And then my heart is full.
Why did you enter into your profession? Let me know in the comments! :D <3
