A couple of weeks ago, I got to spend an evening with this absolutely adorable family. I think I had a smile plastered on my face the entire time. In fact, I know I did because my face hurt afterward. Something I never expected to get out of photography and which still surprises me for some reason, is the pure joy I feel while photographing people. I've never left a shoot feeling discouraged over the interaction I just had. I've always left feeling elated about the experience, honoured that they chose me, and excited to get home and look at the images.
What I'm trying to say is that the people who choose me to photograph them do just as much for me as I am doing for them, if not more. The fact that they place their trust in me, and allow me into their precious moments, just like the ones pictured below, is a gift I can't possibly repay. So thank you! To those that have hired me, to those that will, and to all of the lovely people in my life who cheer me on.
