“What would you do if you weren’t afraid”
I was reading recently and came across this quote. Of course, this got me thinking about the many times in my life that I let fear hold me back. Life is a constant battle against our own self-imposed fear, because if we are really being honest a lot of the things we fear aren’t worth worrying over. Then, this got me thinking about photography.
How many of us, as women, are afraid to be photographed? I was. Growing up, I remember how my mom was always behind the camera, but rarely in the pictures. And, as I grew up and had kids, how I became the same way. Looking back at all the fun memories we had, I would love to see more of my parents in the images. Because, when we are kids we forget the details. As parents, I think our main focus is to capture every aspect of our children’s lives, but we forget to do the same for our kids.
One day, we will be gone, and our children will look for pictures of us. What will they find?
That is why I love what I do so much. With a click, I am able to capture a moment in time, memories that will be cherished for generations. I would love to challenge all the women out there, who are scared of being photographed to get in front of the camera.
