Over the last 5 or 6 months, I’ve really been thinking about where my photography business is headed. I’ve been thinking that I should probably choose a ‘specialty’ and focus primarily on that area. I’ve been having a really hard time with it because I love all aspects of photography and I especially love being a part of such precious moments in peoples lives.
I have been really playing around with the idea of focusing primarily on weddings, engagement and boudoir. I love photographing family and babies, but feel that I am ‘better’ at photographing weddings/engagement/boudoir. I thought that I was all set and ready to re-brand and make the switch but after I got the disc to this wonderful family and received this fabulous email… I’m not so sure I’m ready to stop photographing babies/families!!
Firstly thank you so much for going out of your way to bring the pics over. I don’t know if I was emotional from being in hospital all week, but I cried a bit looking at them. I loved seeing the pics of all my girls, they look so beautiful and you captured them so well. And all the little parts of Amelie, her feet, hands, mouth, so I never forget them as she grows. I love the black and white one of her and I at the end of the disc. You are so talented its ridiculous. What a shame for parents if you stop doing newborn and family photos, you have a way of capturing the spirit of each child and person that I don’t think other photographers do.
I have to say. *I* cried when I read these beautiful words. This is why I love my job. Of course, I love photography in general. Everything about it makes my heart swell. But to play such an important part in preserving these very precious moments for families, it’s such a huge honour and I love every bit of it.
