Learn how to create a beautiful and fun experience for yourself and whoever you're photographing, and find YOUR vision. Don't walk into a shoot memorizing other people's work, show up and know how to execute your own artistic voice to tell a family's story.
Most of all, discover how to have a healthy relationship with your work. Start running a business that leaves you feeling rested, good, and with an endless well of creativity and inspiration. Because in order to create your best stuff, you have to have the mental & physical energy for it (you deserve it).
We all joined this profession because we wanted more freedom in our life. We wanted to do something that was fun and joyful, and that we felt proud of.
After years of photographing families, i've come to learn that taking images with feeling starts with the joy you have for your work. How present you are in your own life.
