I’m often asked how I came to be a photographer. The answer is simple, and one that continues to drive me daily. I started my journey into photography to capture my daughter growing up.
Of course I’ve branched out considerably since I first picked up a camera back in 2006, but I always return to both my daughter and kids in general as subjects I love. I am constantly amazed by the innocence, the wonder, the purity of kids and their actions.
I love the fact that I can capture these little moments, keeping the stories safe for that time in the future when my little one isn’t so little. And what stories – from moments of unbridled joy, to moments of sadness, each one I will treasure and hope that one day, my daughter will treasure them too.
If you’re a photographer reading this – what is your inspiration? What made you take that first frame?
