Honored and amazed

I have always loved photography and been intrigued by it. I revel in the power and emotion that a single shot can have. I am always inspired by photographers and the art they create and the moments they are able to capture.

For the longest time (years in fact) I have been arguing with myself; you see I've always wondered if I could be a photographer, and I've always convinced myself otherwise- that I would be horrible at it. Finally at the age of 27 I convinced myself to give it a shot, what's the worst that could happen? I'd fail, and if so then I'd never have to tell anyone what my secret dream was.

So I bought my first DSLR back in September of 2009 and asked a friend if she'd let me take pictures of her and her boyfriend. They said yes and since then something amazing has happened- people have asked me to take their pictures after seeing that very first shoot! I can't tell you how honored and amazed I am that people actually want to entrust me with their memories. Especially since I am SO new at all of this. I have so much to learn still. In fact, I am currently shooting in aperture -priority mode because I haven't mastered manual yet! For those of you out there reading this that are photographers and understand what that means then you know just how far I still have to go. The thing is, I'm willing to learn and put in the work. I can see that I have the potential to do great (eventually) in this field and even more than that is the way I feel when taking pictures. I can't explain it- it's just an amazing feeling... I get lost in the moment, and that is wonderful.

The reason that I am making this post is for two reasons.
One is to thank everyone. To thank those who have encouraged me thus far and who continue to do so. To thank the families that have contacted me and asked me to freeze their family in a moment; who have asked me to capture their children's natural beauty and innocence. To my friends who are willing to go out with me and allow me to practice on them- in good weather and not so good weather ;) To my family for their continued support.
Thank you all.

The second reason is to announce that due to the overwhelming response that I have recieved I have decided upon my pricing for photoshoots.

As of now the pricing is as follows:

Whats included:
2+ hour shoot, 2 outfits, 2 locations*.

Again, I am so honored, blessed, and amazed by the response that I have received from everyone.
