Today there is an Instagram challenge with the #risingtidesociety to show our workspace and what it means to be a part of the creative economy.
So here is my workspace in all her glory. My second or third cup of coffee, my once fresh flowers that I couldn't keep up with last week, a bowl of teddy grahams, and a lit candle because it is gloomy and gray outside. Not to mention, my husband's side of our shared desk that is covered in knee surgery goodies. My desk is in my kitchen and I do not have a chair or stool, which I prefer. My kitchen is the center of our home as my number one job is a stay at home mom of our three growing boys, ages 4, 3, and 1.
I never would have guessed that photography would be this big a part of my life if you would have asked me ten years ago, five years ago, or even 2 years ago. Being a mom was a given, I knew from a very young age that my ideal everyday would be a stay at home wife and mom. I love making our home a sanctuary of sorts, a place where all of our walls come down and we can just be. I am a homebody through and through. But up until right before I found out I was pregnant with our third baby, I didn't realize that I needed an outlet of sorts. Something that I could call just mine, that I could think on and learn and thrive at personally, because let's be honest I don't think any parent thinks that they are thriving every single day with raising kids (hardest job ever). I am a portrait photographer and I mainly photograph families of all sorts. Whether it be a group family session, a maternity session, an engagement or couple session; I photograph you and your people. To give clients photos that they will be looking back on for years to come that spark conversations of remembering this time in your life, this experience you are going through, or just keeping the big picture in focus for you when life throws you a curveball. That is everything. That is what I look for in photos of my own family, and I am forever grateful to give that away to others.
