This is me. L I V I N G. Shot by my amazing & talented friend @ashleycreativeco, edited by me.
This is what happens when other creatives work to-geth-er instead of competing. I told Ashley, “you captured me how *I* would have captured me.” As a new mom, I still don’t feel completely comfortable in my own skin. I feel like a weird, foreign version of myself that does not look or feel the same and maybe never will. You would have never known that by looking at this photo. That’s the beauty of it. That’s what photography can do. God it felt so good to do this shoot....because it made me feel Iike ME again even for just 30 minutes.
Thank u @ashleycreativeco ❤️
I read on a photography blog somewhere that it takes about a year to master taking good photos of kids because they’re always moving and don’t always want to cooperate. So for now I’ll keep doing what I can with the moments that I do catch on camera 😆
Hello peeps it's @waltzinthedark , I'm here for my second day takeover of Stealing Frames.
I tried whole-heartedly in the past to not take photography 'seriously' out of the fear of losing my creative drive. But I then think I have my definition of 'serious' misconstrued. I think the more I shoot, the more I see photography as less of an external phenomenon, and more as a tool which is used to make the internal tangible. I think this idea applies to the notion of having a passion. You dream and you wake thinking about it constantly. Is it a curse or blessing? Who cares.
I’ve known Clay and Kate since our summer camp counselor days, when we were all in college and spending three months a year not showering (no? Just me?) and hanging out with kids 24/7. Now they have an adorable son and a dog, and I got to spend time with them catching up and snapping some pics. H was curious about everything during our session, from my camera lens to the airplanes flying overhead. Finger in mouth, he wandered from toy to book to dog, always wanting to be on the move and exploring. I so enjoy taking pictures of families in their homes; it brings out a level of ease and happiness that my camera loves. Thanks Thomas fam!
