Getting into photography was something I have always wanted to do. I grew up with a camera latched around my wrist. In high school, I was always the girl who took photos at the swimming carnival, or someone's sweet 16th or just randomly around the playground. I was that girl. Did I know what I was doing or what goes into a good photo? No. All I knew was I liked capturing moments, moments in people's lives that they could cherish for years to come.
I first asked Georgia if I could take photos of her family a couple of weeks ago. I've known Georgia for several years now, so I knew her little family would be a great place to start my journey. It was daunting to put myself out there for the first time as a 'photographer' rather than someone who just takes photos. What if people didn't like my photos? What if I wasn't good enough?
I've learnt that becoming a photographer means putting all those fears and worries away and focusing on what is truly important - your subjects.
These are the photos I took of Georgia, Matt and their beautiful daughter Patience. My first 'proper' family shoot. I'm pretty happy with how these images turned out and it was a joy to hear that Georgia and Matt did too. I feel so much love through them which is what any family should be about. I love the love these guys possess - its awesome!
Thank you Georgia, Matt and Patience for kicking this journey off! I'm looking forward to seeing where it takes me
