Discipline is just choosing between what you want now and what you want most.
In the multitude of my anxieties within me, Your comforts delight my soul.
Sammy’s puppy dayz.—
I get so excited for people experiencing life. I just sent a check-up email to the Bride I get to shoot this week and I was getting so freaking excited just typing it out. that is why I love lifestyle photography so much.
sometimes I start to get burnt out on photo, or maybe it’s discouragement in my ability or something. whatever it is, it makes me feel like stopping what I’m pursuing. but then I do something like send an email to a bride telling her how excited I am for their wedding, and I remember why I do it. getting my wedding photos back has been so much fun. it makes me remember parts of the day that I had forgotten, or get to see the details I worked so intently on for months and months up close. it’s so special. out of all the things you spend money on for a wedding, photography is the best and most important.
so that’s it. I want to be the person that captures the special parts of these beautiful peoples’ day. so that 50 years from now, they can pull out a photo album and show their grandkids how perfect it really was. photos are tangible treasures of our heart’s memories.
I’m just rambling but really this is what pushes me to be better. I just want to learn more and experience more and get better and better so that the photos are that much more special to someone. when people trust me with this huge detail of their wedding, I want to make them feel so blessed by their decision.
