Adventures in Photography
Last week showed me exactly why I adore photography. I have amazing adventures, all in the name of documenting families and events, with a sprinkle of magic.
What did last week look like in my world? Let's see...
That shirt? It's not a shirt... I photographed an all day camouflage body paint with Alison Kenyon This image is only the beginning, a sneak peek. Because we are working on a few epic projects for our shared adventures with Viral Media INK. Keep an eye out for the finished artwork here and on our Facebook Page.
Then, I finished edits and posted KVMR Celtic Festival galleries.
Anika and Ian were on their best behavior to meet the Queen.
Then, I answered a call for a last-minute opportunity to be at a birthday party with a real dinosaur. A real dinosaur? Why, yes, an awesome real dinosaur from Dinosaur Events. What a spectacular way to celebrate a birthday! And the family was delightful (which always adds extra sparkle).
Then a beautiful wedding in the midst of a storm, where the love and family support made all the wind and wet weather irrelevant.
This morning, I listened to a podcast advising photographers to find their "niche". To choose one style that's a strength, then excel at that. Specialize in a type of images that become your "brand".
My brand? Adventure photography. Not the wild, jump-in-a-helicopter-and-snowboard-down-a-mountainside adventures, but fun and family adventures. The adventures that take our expected day and adds a little sparkle of magic, a sun flare or a mermaid or a dinosaur. Adventures can show us that Wonderland isn't down a rabbit hole. It's right here, if we just look through the right lens :)
I wonder what I will discover this week...
