I set up my business as a photographer because, you’ve guessed it, I love photography. I generally like to make things look beautiful in all aspects of life and I love to create visual memories.
When my daughter was born, I was borderline obsessed with taking photos of her. I’m pretty sure that she’s in the top 1% of ‘World’s Most Photographed Babies’. I was (and still am) petrified of her growing up and changing too quickly. I obviously want her to grow and flourish, but what I don’t want to do is forget how tiny she once was – how she had rolls of fat on her chunky thighs, how she used to sulk even at 10 months old, and how squishy she was before she started crawling.
So I began documenting every part of our lives together, learning how to take better photos, learning how to use my camera to its full capability, and enjoying printing the 1500 photos I took of her in her first year. Yes, really.
