A Passionate Post
Today’s challenge honestly had me stumped. We were asked to write about one thing we are truly passionate about and why. When you think about it, it really shouldn’t be that hard right? I’d have to say the two things I’m very passionate about are photography and items with a story. Lucky for me, they sometimes go hand in hand.
I wish I could remember when my photography really took off. I’ve always enjoyed photographing the things around me and never really got in to photographing people until friends of mine asked me to take their family photos. After that one session, their word of mouth about my work spread and I started getting more and more people wanting to work with me. It was an amazing transformation from taking photos of flowers and nature to working more with people.
I love working with each and every one of my clients but truly love going out and photographing nature. To be alone in the woods or on the water and just taking in everything around you brings such peace to my soul. No one to judge, no one to see you laying on the ground to get that perfect shot, and no one to see you close your eyes to just soak it all in.
Each photograph evokes an emotion in me and some even tell a story. There is an old house by my dad’s that has been standing for over 100 years and I could sit and stare at it for hours. I think about the people who used to live there, what their lives were like, and what they did for fun. You may see a scary old house but I see history and a home that keep the occupants safe and warm. I look at the flowers in the front of the house that have been growing year after year with no care and am amazed…that they come back no matter how hard the winter, no matter how many times they have been trampled by deer…no matter what…they keep coming back.
I take each and every opportunity to tell a story with my photography whether it’s of a family, an old house, or even spring blooms on a tree. It inspires me to live each day to the fullest.
I hope you enjoyed getting to know a little bit more about the things that I’m passionate about and what makes me who I am. If you did, PLEASE go down and leave a comment. I’d love to hear from you!!!
Can’t wait to see what day 3 of this challenge brings :)
