I recently came across a photographers blog and immediately fell in love with her concept. Her style is documentary and she believes in creating photos that strongly trigger a memory or evoke a feeling deep inside. She encourages photographers to not neglect documenting history in the making.
I think the reason why this resonated so much with me is I feel that this is exactly what I try to do with my images, I try to capture a moment, tell a story and provide memories that can be treasured forever. I have been told recently by a client that they can feel the emotion through the pictures I take. To me that is the biggest compliment I could ever receive and something I continue to strive for in any of my sessions.
Going through her photos got me thinking more about my style and I feel lifestyle/documentary fits with my passion and vision. It excites me to feel like I am starting to find my way and my niche. You can find her website here http://www.fearlessandframed.com
I am in awe of her photos and totally inspired and as a result I have been documenting my little one’s milestones and thought I would share a few with you 🙂
I encourage you to shoot from your heart, and to understand the ‘why’ behind each click of the shutter.
