What is your favorite thing to photograph?
In all honesty, it changes day by day and with what I’m photographing that day! But, my top three overall I would have to say are weddings, babies and pregnancy.
Here’s a little about why I love each thing that I photograph:
*tiny babies make me smile
*it is really awesome to witness babies growing bigger throughout their first year
*babies smiling at me each time I walk in the door, and not smiling once the camera is on them!
*that first birthday excitement as a child dives into a cake for one of the first (and messiest) times!
*seeing the bride getting ready and the range of emotions – from excitement to some anxiety, “let’s get this over with” to pure happiness when she sees her true love waiting at the end of the aisle
*I am a hopeless romantic, so I love seeing all aspects of a love story!
*being a witness to the first time a bride and groom see each other
*getting to know and being able to joke with a wedding party
*seeing the nerves and then the groom’s face light up as he sees his bride walking down the aisle
*seeing and feeling the love between the bride and groom
*I feel like pregnancy is the start to all the other types of photography I do, and that is pretty amazing!
*I definitely believe that a pregnant woman is a beautiful woman. Even when she doesn’t feel like she is her most beautiful, I enjoy making her feel beautiful and capturing that beauty.
*There is always so much joy when a woman is expecting a child
*seeing the free spirit of children is always inspiring to me!
*I’m always amazed by the great moments and expressions I catch even when it seemed like a child didn’t smile the whole session
*when kids know me as their photographer and have a hard time taking school pictures because it isn't Miss Kim taking the pictures!
*young couples in love and being silly together
*the excitement of the upcoming wedding is contagious!
*witnessing the joy of a small newly formed family with their new baby
*experiencing the dynamic of a family with generations brought together
*There is so much excitement and possibility with high school seniors, it is a contagious!
*They are like little models and it is so fun to photograph a subject that follows directions!!
