MY REASONS FOR PHOTOGRAPHY

I have been asked by so many people how I got started in photography? What keeps me going? and What do I use. I figured 12 years of learning photography have passed, I think I can share something by now or at least have a small idea of what to share to encourage those wanting to get started!

HOW ?

Allot of you may think I am crazy after reading this and that's okay haha! I believe and know with all my heart God put this talent inside of me and all my steps have been ordered by Jesus in making this all happen. 12 years ago I shot my first wedding with my dad and I knew from that moment I wanted to do photography as a full time career. My dad had a canon

I am a photographer captivated by natural beautiful light and clean imagery. I want every image to show the beauty of whatever my subject may be in the simplest of ways.  The truth is, I am terrible at trying to describe myself or even talk about myself. Talking about myself seems to give me this weird anxiety!  The most real and appropriate words for me would be "I have been so blessed". I absolutely love what I do and I can not describe the feeling I get being able to bring that same love to others! I find it a huge blessing that I could even be considered and given a talent that bring so much joy to people everywhere! I would of never believed that my life would or could be something people find inspiring...seriously. I never want to take that for granted. It has been nothing but The Lord!

MY EQUIPMENT

I currently and have used a Canon 5D Mark 2 for over 10 years now and I still love it even with all the new upgrades and models that come out yearly.

I shoot with mainly prime lenses because they work best for me in the quality of work I desire. 

My new favorite all because my awesome husband challenged me to try something new. I currently have a Sigma 50 1.4 and it’s so so amazing! I love it. I also shot with the canon 50 1.2 for a while, this lens is also amazing.

 For the best wide shot’s I generally shoot with the Sigma 35mm 1.4

 it makes me happy every time I see the images.       

MY INSPIRATION & PASSION

I'm sure that most people would think that referring to Jesus as my biggest inspiration seems a bit cliché, but He really is. Also, nature, people I interact with daily, and freedom that has all come from the Lord inspires me as well! I know for a fact that it is nothing but the Lord that gives all good and perfect gifts.

{ James 1:17 } 

   Honestly lots of practice and taking time to photograph things I love. I pray and ask Jesus to be present and inspire me at every shoot whether paid or for fun. I learned giving away my talent to things that don’t inspire me kill my passion and It also puts me in a very bad mood, because I feel like I am not creating to my best ability so I have learned to turn certain shoots down ( that’s okay, other photographers are trying to grow as well ). I urge you to learn and realize the value of your work. Be as honest and open as possible. Valuing my work challenged me for a long time because I didn’t understand what made me different from everyone else and why people would want me to photograph them. I now realize the more I do photography and create what inspires me, that is what inspires others and they can see my best work in what has been created.
