My Why

Have you ever wondered what stokes a photographer’s passion?  Wonder why they do it?  Well here are a few of MY reasons why..

  1. Photography changes how you see things. I am constantly noticing colors, textures, people, and light in a way most people don’t. It’s a way to capture those things for others to see.

  2. You pay attention. Everything you see is something you can shoot with some creative lighting, or posing. Even the most mundane can become beautiful when you photograph it in a creative way.

  3. It's my creative outlet. Every photo I take I get the chance to put a little bit of who I am into each image.  I particularly love shooting people in a way they don’t see themselves and I can show them a different perspective.

  4. It's a challenge. There is always something new to explore, something new to learn and even and a new way to work with the same subject and create something different! It’s never the same way twice and it never gets boring.

  5. PEOPLE. I love working with people, the connection and friendships I make from a session is something I am grateful for every day.  

 

Every photographer has a different WHY, and this list changes a little bit as I grow and learn and make more connections, but right now, this these are some of my Why’s.
