There are not very many pictures of me! For one, I really don’t like having my photo taken…I know kind of ironic for a photographer to HATE being photographed, right?!?! But I swear something happens to me when I get on the other side of the camera and I turn into Quasimodo! I don’t feel comfortable and it really produces anxiety for me. This is one of the reasons I think I am good at what I do. I know how hard it can be to sit there feeling insecure while someone points a black box at all of your flaws. So when I am shooting, I try to be mindful of that and help my clients forget that we are taking photos! But because I avoid this with every ounce of my being…there are NO photos of me with my Family. We joke that you know I was on the vacation because there ARE photos…but I am in very few of them. So I finally decided it was time to push myself out of my comfort zone and get on the other side of the camera.
I have always loved the way film looks…I originally learned to shoot photos with my nifty Canon AE-1 and was excited to ask Andrew and Tianna Photography to meet my Family at our favorite place, OUR beach, and shoot us doing what we do best…be GOOFY!! And I LOVE the result!
*One last thing…please don’t wait to capture your Family memories…It is pretty sad that my Daughter is 16 and my Son 11 before I actually had someone shoot our Family professionally! It is my own insecurities that made this a reality…I think someday they will cherish these photos as well as the memories we made making them. Don’t wait! Our time here is not guaranteed, but photography will capture a moment before it is gone! XOXO! If you fall off…I WILL laugh at you!!Running with my Baby!I wasn’t wet enough for them!Thank you so much Tianna and Andrew!! You have given me priceless images to remember this fun time in our lives!! And a special thanks to Elizabeth Alfier from Behind the Veil Studios for making Morgan and I feel so beautiful…and that make-up didn’t run even in the Bay, people!! That is AMAZING!! XOXO!!
