I have been sitting and thinking about this blog post for awhile. I’m not sure how to put into words all that I learned about photography, my business, my clients, and myself. About a month ago, at the end of January, I attended a workshop by Trevor Dayley. It was perfect timing and just the thing I needed to energize me for the upcoming wedding season. Even though I went to the workshop for a technical lesson, to learn more about OCF, I found myself being inspired and focusing on the human element. I came away with two goals:
1. To tell my couples stories more creatively
2. To shoot more intentionally.
There were many little tips and tricks I learned that will help me achieve these goals. One thing I didn’t expect but have learned is, as much as I try to separate the goals they are completely entwined. In order to be creative, and have it be successful, I have to shoot with intention.
Growing in any area of life is a little uncomfortable and not easy. I don’t know where I will be at the end of this particular growth spurt, but I do know a few things here at the beginning. I love photography. I love that I get to capture moments in peoples lives. I love helping someone to see their beauty. I have been incredibly blessed while on this journey. I can’t wait to see where it goes.
