I am often asked why...it is my children's favorite daily question. But last week I was asked why I do what I do. Why choose to be a photographer. The answer is simple. I love. I love photos in frames. I love the stories captured within the four corners. I love the opportunity to serve, to build relationships, and to stop a moment...a moment that starts with an "I do"....seeing a couple's hope for a future full of what life has to offer. I love hearing mothers of brides telling me, as I am photographing their daughter's wedding, that they cannot wait to call me for baby pictures (and to see the daughter's expression...lol!). Or getting a call from one of my brides to hear they just added a new fur-baby to their family and they need family pictures....and my heart is full.
It is a wonderful reminder to my "why"
It was almost 2 years ago that I met this couple...they were fun, joyful, and so much in love.
Lewis and I felt so honored to photograph their wedding.
The day was perfect and they were surrounded by wonderful family and friends. So much in love....
But there is more....
In comes baby, Ella...the perfect product of their love.
And walking into their sweet home, I saw their family...and there is so much love.
A couple of days ago, I dropped off an album to one of my fabulous brides...she wrote a thank you and exclaimed "this isn't the end though!! The day we need maternity pictures-I'm calling you." I was about in tears (yes, Katie, you are fabulous, amazing, and I cannot wait!)
