It’s a new week and that means we have a brand new Youtube Video ready for you!!!! We have been blown away by the amount of people who have questions and responses to our videos where I introduce you to my way of saving our family memories.
I think there is so much interest in this topic because our audience is heavily made up of photographers and a large majority of you are parents. We love photography…. We love beautiful images…. But for some reason it’s SO stressful to think about documenting our own family!
I get that.
It’s almost like our JOB steals the JOY of photography away from being used in our everyday lives!
However, I have found that when you set aside some intense expectations and you just allow yourself to capture your family when it feels natural to and when you’re excited about it…. It CAN be done in a fun way.
We have had a REALLY busy few weeks recently. Since mid-July, my personal family documentation system has been put on hold as I launched a new website, shot three weddings and 3 other shoots, pursued some other personal projects and filmed a mini-details course (That is still coming! I promise! And it will be WORTH the WAIT!).
Oh yes…. And I’m pregnant and have two kids 3 and under.
Life gets crazy….
But last week, I had an evening after bedtimes were done that I printed a few family photos and culled through images I had taken during the summer and even though I’m not caught up on every aspect of my system from my busy weeks, because I have a system, I’m not stressed about it. I know exactly where to pick back up and I never get so far behind that I can’t catch back up!
Come January, I’ll be finalizing my 2020 Family Album and adding it to the collection!!!
So far, I’ve shared……
And NOW I’m releasing a video that is just focusing on the process and tips about actually making your family yearbook come to life each year!!
If you have been overwhelmed by editing…or just not sure what exactly the image is *missing* to make you happy with the final edit, chances are, you’ve never been taught what to look for!
I started my career as a wedding photographer almost 14 YEARS AGO….hard to believe it!
If you’re an overshooter like me, this can be the most time consuming part! Which photos to keep and which are unnecessary? From 13 years of experience, I have a few tips to help you make this a quick process!
Packing for a trip can be OVERWHELMING… but it can be even MORE overwhelming if you decide to bring your expensive camera!
We’re going back to the basics! This is one of the most common emails we have in our inbox.. ‘Where should I put my focal point to get a tack sharp image?’
Looking through a lens in so many businesses has given me a unique perspective to see the traits that are needed for success!
