I recently attended an amazing class in Seattle for photographers and a big part of what I learned there was translating why I am doing what I do. Part of the class was called Finding Your Why, or purpose, for doing what you do. If you have been noticing little changes with how I am presenting my business, this is what is causing it.
I have always known that I loved photography and loved even more taking images for people that they openly express their love for but never knew how to translate what my passion for photography meant. It goes way beyond the fact that I like to create beautiful images. Early on I realized I was horrible at drawing or painting but still wanted to create. Learning dark room photography in high school woke something up inside and made me realize I could still be an artist even if I was awful at the rest of it. I was hooked. Over time I started getting more & more into portrait photography.
My why is capturing love. Whether that is to help you love yourself with beautiful images that include you & never thought were possible, or capturing images where you marry the love of your life, and capturing the first images of your baby in your arms. These are all time sensitive moments in your life that won't be there forever. If I can capture them for a handful of people so that in 10 or 20 years they can look back at those images and feel what they felt at that moment, then I have fulfilled my purpose. That might sound cheesy but it really does boil down to why I do what I do and which types of portrait sessions have become my favorite to shoot.
So the big question is what is your why? If you can figure it out, it might just change your life and your business.
