I have to apologize for being so boring since starting my blog. As you know, I have been super busy, and sometimes it is hard enough just to get the posts and the basic info out there for each session. I kind of feel bad for some of my clients who get the “we took pics, it was fun” treatment when a few others actually get the heartfelt paragraphs of “this is their story and how we all had so much fun” googly-eyed stuff. It doesn’t mean I don’t like you—just that I didn’t have the time or mentality to get something coherent out there. From now on, I am going to try my best to put something else out there every once in a while—tell you my thoughts or rants or raves and let you get a better insight into who you are working with. I spend all this time trying to get to know you and figure you out so that I can bring you to life in your portraits, but I shouldn’t let it be so one-sided. And for those of you who don’t really care, you don’t have to read….of course, you are probably not my clients in that case, so I am rambling on to no one.
I have to put it out there that it is 3:42 a.m after Christmas as I am writing this. Just so you know where I am coming from. Some of my best “writing” thoughts come to me late at night when I am lying in bed trying to get to sleep—another reason why I hardly get anything out there—I usually forget it by morning. So, my stomach isn’t feeling too well tonight (I really shouldn’t have eaten all that junk food, holiday or not) and my mind was on full active mode and I just couldn’t get to sleep. I finally decided to give up and do something productive: write a real blog post. So here goes: my first topic of what I hope to be many.
Comment! Over the past few months, I have been informed that I have many stalkers to my blog, and still I think that I must have the largest ratio of visits to the site versus actual people who comment. I guess some of you are too hesitant to comment on things and to be honest, maybe most of it is just laziness—I am guilty of it, too, so I don’t blame you! Someone once told me they really did want to comment a lot but they were worried it would be creepy. Well, I guess it WOULD be pretty creepy if you started going on and on about how hot the guy is in that engagement shoot (yeah, he’s engaged) or gave your number out in a comment. If it makes you feel better, you can just keep the content to how awesome I am and how much you love my style, etc……..just kidding……sort of, haha. Seriously, though, I promise no one will judge, and I LOVE getting comments. It makes it feel like it was worth it to spend the extra hours I put into actually posting.
The images you see are my favorites from each session or event. I don’t always know why I choose them—sometimes it’s something I can’t explain. Maybe the subtlest expression on someone’s face or just a feeling I get when I see the image for the first time—an instinct. Maybe it’s something left over from the moment I clicked my shutter on that day. But why do YOU like them? Which one is your favorite? What makes you laugh or cry or even just think, “What the heck?” What do you have to say about this or that, or what caption do you want to put on something? What drew you here in the first place, anyway?Share on Facebook
