I strongly believe that photography is an art, an expression, a moment preserved. Capturing life in its most natural form is a beautiful thing. I feel like, with the advent of Pinterest, Photoshop alterations, etc., we have gotten away from what a photograph should be. The truth. A record of our real lives. A message... I was here! Enhancing an image with color or transforming it into a gorgeous black and white, adding texture... I'm all for it. But many of the trends these days are just not for me. Prior to this year, I provided these services to everyone and I stayed extremely busy. But the art faded. I bent my standards and realized I was mass producing sub par work that I didn't even really enjoy anymore. There was no life in the photographs anymore. No excitement in me.
2015, a brand new year, and I am returning to my vision, my art. To those shots that make my heart skip a beat. To the love of recording life which first prompted me to pick up the camera when I was just a child. This also means that I will be providing portrait/wedding photography selectively from here on, not to all. I feel that, not only is this the best choice I can make for myself personally, but the best choice I can make for the clients that I do take on. I will be delivering my creative best instead of just performing a job. I believe you deserve that.
I am looking forward to an exciting new year, a new style, and a brand new journey.
