You may notice that things have changed a bit here and there. I think that as a creative person, I’m never completely satisfied and I have the constant need for change. It’s one of the perks of being a photographer/graphic artist because I have the opportunity to try new things out often, with the added perk of getting to experience those new things with new people! I recently decided that I was over my logo. It had served it’s purpose, but it was time to move on. I wanted something that was more reflective of where I am with my photography now and not tie myself down to a particular piece of art, drawing, etc. Life changes, moods change and I was ready for a change. I’ve found myself happily taking on more weddings (not too many though!) and being okay with that. I’ve always tried to limit the amount of weddings that I’ve done so that I could put an equal amount of time into my portrait work. Both play an important role in my business and each has their own place. I have a passion for all forms of photography. A few months back I thought that maybe I should just focus on one thing. I felt like a kid in the candy aisle looking at everything and thinking “you need to pick one thing Carrie and you need to savor it…..you need to love it with all that you are.” But then I got to thinking, why can’t I love each of the same with the same amount of passion?
I love newborns. I love the way parents look into their eyes and love watching them sleep. I love the excitement of seeing how the session will transform since it’s so heavily dependent on how calm/relaxed/sleepy they are!!
I love families. I love watching how each family interacts with each other. I love telling parents to relax……what will be, will be……just enjoy your family and I’ll handle the rest.
I love capturing seniors. I love that feeling of not knowing what’s to come…….whether it’s nervous excitement or pure terror about what lies ahead of them after they walk across that stage. So many possibilities.
I love capturing weddings. I LOVE the love. I love the excitement, the joy, the tears, the hugs, the dancing and the gift I’m able to give after the tables are cleared and the honeymoon is over.
I LOVE that I get to tell all of these stories, and that each one is important in their own way. For this reason, and this reason alone, I will continue to capture everything that I love! So with that in mind, I look forward to capturing MANY beautiful memories from all types of beautiful souls in 2012!!!
