I've been in process of updating my blog, so once again I have been somewhat inconsistent. Just when I get on a roll. Such as life.
In past posts I have mentioned making changes to my business. I honestly can't wait to unveil what is coming ahead! After a number of years as a successful wedding photographer, I have decided to discontinue my wedding services. Rather, I will be focusing 100% of my business efforts within Portrait photography. To be completely honest, portraiture is what moved me to first begin work in professional photography services. I love taking peoples portraits. It's an incredible honor and privilege to capture the essence of who someone is. I have been able to do this in Ecuador, China, India, New Zealand, Fiji, England, Colombia, Peru, France, the Bahamas, and of course, all across the US.
There is something magical about creating art with someone's personality and form. That is one of the things I enjoy the very most about my job.
I am excited for the season ahead. Change can be scary, but it is also exciting.
To the end of making my business even more wonderful, I began to do some additional reading. I wanted to pass along some fantastic titles for a rainy day - or snow day if you leave in Colorado; these apply to anyone who wants to make a difference with their work:
2. GREAT WORK
My portrait business has always been focused on stories. Largely because I personally believe we are all moved by stories and the examples of those around us. I have found these books to enhance the stories we create with our work; And the motivation behind the stories we want to live within.
Enjoy and have a lovely week!
