There are a lot of times I’m reminded how much I love photography. Today I took out my camera to document the purchase of our first live Christmas tree (which I love way more than I thought I would). I felt incredibly lucky that I even own a camera, and I get paid to use it! It’s like the guy who loves playing video games getting hired to test new video games. I love using a camera to get people excited about who they are and the way they look. My greatest compliment is when a client looks at their pictures and says, “Ah! I could be in a magazine!” I just think, “Of course you could! If you’ve ever thought you looked ugly in a picture in the past, chances are the person taking it didn’t know much about lighting or framing!” Magazines are full of images created by artists. And every celebrity that appears in magazines has a personal photo retoucher that retouches every single photo before it’s released. There’s no magic blood-type that puts a celebrity on some higher level of perfection. Images and video are just so prominent in media today that we’re only told about “famous” people by the artists who document them. Well, now I get to be people’s and families’ personal artist to show them and their close ones how unique and beautiful and wonderfully made they are. One person at a time, I get to shatter the facade that people in magazines are somehow more beautiful than us “normal” folk.
Anyway, that’s my rant for the day. Here’s Kayla! Speaking of could-be-in-a-magazine! We went all over to get a range of urban and nature senior pictures. Kayla, like the last post I made, is now at my alma mater too! Good luck to you Kayla!
