It was one week ago today that I made the official announcement! It was scary, and I had been putting the announcement off for months. This whole year I had been struggling with the reality that I’ve spent 5 years building a wedding photography business, and in those 5 years, I hadn’t been following the path that I wanted. Don’t get me wrong, I love my work and I looooove my brides with my whole heart, but the balance between job and art had become 100/0.
I started my own business so I could be creative on my own time and serve my clients through my own vision. But I quickly started falling into a creative rut. So, I made some decisions. I decided that I need to start honoring my perspective if I want to continue having a creative job. If you saw my last post, you know that I went to Utah last week to learn from BreAnne Weston and on the way home from our last session, I saw the metaphorical crossroads, and I felt my soul choosing a different path than what I’m currently on.
Announcement #1: I am switching my focus to family sessions!! And I’m REALLY freaking excited about it!! I know this is probably disappointing for some of you, and super exciting for others, but, this is what I’m feeling called to do. This doesn’t meant I won’t be shooting weddings at all anymore, but the amount of weddings I’ll be shooting will be cut down quite a bit.
Announcement #2: You might already be noticing a slight change in my editing style. My current style just isn’t speaking to my creative bones anymore. I do love my ultra bright and colorful edits. I think they’re beautiful (with the risk of sounding conceited), but if I want to reset and find my passion for photography again, I have to accept the fact that my creative perspective is pulling me in a different direction. For all of my brides wondering, don’t worry, you’re still going to get the style you fell in love with! I love you and I’m going to give you the very best that I can and the best that you EXPECT of me!
Announcement #3: I’ve got a new section on my website coming soon that is dedicated to family photography only! I am SO excited about it! I have completely fallen head over heels in love with family sessions and my new editing style and it feels great to be completely inspired again!
It feels pretty good to finally let everyone know what I’ve essentially been keeping a secret all year. Thank you guys for your continued support! I’m so excited for this next step in my photography journey!!
