The most helpful thing I found as a start up photographer was community. Almost immediately after deciding to start a family photography business, I made an investment to attend @thefamilynarrative . That community is pretty much my family. I learned so much from attending that retreat and the friendships are invaluable. In addition to family narrative I’ve also made education investments at @illuminateclasses and tons of other online classes and workshops. I guess to sum this all up, education has been key. I hope this helpful. And I’m happy to answer any questions about classes I’ve taken.

Oh, wow! Thank you so much! LOVE LOVE LOVE Camera Mama! So, in terms of editing what I did was pull down highlights, up shadows, clarity, and contrast. That combo seems to help black and whites pop. I also enhanced the catch lights and left his face a little dirty because I felt like it added to the story. The story of being a dirty and crazy little boy. 🤣 Thanks, again!

I photographed this with my 35mm lens. For this shot, I was lying on my back on the ground. I took a piece of glass out of an 8×10 in picture frame and arranged spaghetti on it. Then I had my kid hover over me for the picture as I held the glass in one hand and shut through it with the camera in the other hand. Some fun acrobatics for everyone involved. 😂

At first this mama said should I open the screen? And I said hang on let’s take a few through it first- and I’m soooo glad we did! I’m a texture lover- so anytime I have a chance to shoot through something I do. I did a lot of manual focusing here to make sure they were sharp. I used a #sigma105mmart 1.4 at 2.8. I lovvvvvve this lens! Then she did open the screen and we continued to make some more incredible things beautiful moments! I was verrry far back on a step ladder. I’m sure the neighbors were probably like what the heck? 😂
