With the launch of my new website and the start of my blog comes some nostalgia. It’s only when I had to sort through hard drive upon hard drive to get photographs for the website that I actually realize how many weddings I have shot! It’s only when a bride came into the studio for family photographs and casually mentions that it’s her 9th wedding anniversary next week that I realize how long I have been doing this! You never forget your first bride!
It’s been Hard Work
It’s been hard work, any photographer will tell you that. However I really feel that my business in nurturing me now, especially since the birth of my son ‘Henry’ who, needless to say, takes up a lot of my time!! I appreciate the flexible working hours and not having to answer to anyone, except myself at times!! Yes, we can be a self critical bunch at times, us photographers!!
So let me take you back 9 years, I was young & fearless, with no responsibilities, except a Ford Fiesta and some rented accommodation!! My first two weddings were just a day apart! Talk about being thrown in at the deep end.
364 Weddings, 11 homes, 4 cars, a camper van, a patient boyfriend, a baby boy, one crazy hair do and a surfboard later here I am.
Anyway, I survived, thrived and grew as a photographer and a person, now, 364 Weddings, 11 homes, 4 cars, a camper van, a patient boyfriend, a baby boy, one crazy hair do and a surfboard later here I am.
Now, the question is… should I go back to blonde?
