Eight years ago today I decided it was now or never, and took the plunge to follow my dream and start making a living creating baby photography. PhotoBaby was born and it has been a winding adventure of highs and lows and learning curves as steep as mountains (good job I love learning!). I have met so many amazing people and been honoured to record so many precious moments now. I may still have a little to learn on the art of cash flow, but I feel richer than I ever thought possible.
Every day I know that the work I take such joy in creating goes on to be some of the most treasured possessions my client will ever own. These are portraits that will bring smiles on the greyest of days and will be enjoyed still when their owners are old and frail. My job is capturing the love, laughter and magic we share with our loved ones and bottling it up so you can enjoy it forever and that feels very good and I’m not sure I could be doing anything more valuable.
The babies I photographed when I was just starting out are already leggy saplings full of the wonders of childhood, nearer ten than zero now. Just a few more years and they will have skipped right through childhood. Time is flying, we must cherish every moment. Who knows what tomorrow will bring, that’s why we should celebrate today!
So I’m taking my team out for lunch, they all work really hard in helping me make my vision of PhotoBaby a reality and I’m trying hard to practice what I preach. And I want to celebrate all month long so we have lots of goodies for you too.
