In the last couple months, I have been busy documenting my photography journey on this blog (which I should have since the beginning) and it has been so fun to see what it is I captured each day, something a little unique and different each time. It has been such an amazing journey for me and so blessed to have such a passion in my life for it. I always wondered what it would be like to be a photographer. I was in high school when I learned on a old black and white film camera where I had to learn how to develop my own film and it had to be perfect for grading striaght out of camera because there was no photoshop to fix those small little oopsies… or big oopsies for that matter. I almost feel a small dream of mine I thought was just a “thought in the back of my mind” has become a reality and now a big dream of mine. I have met some amazing people and have studied under some amazing photographers that I only dreamed about being mentored by and made it reality to meet them and study under them and are so grateful for their generosity in help shape my vision with Bei Momenti. Everyday there is still a new lesson to be learned, and I am always learning everyday, but it is the small simple moments for others that I have been able to capture that puts a smile on my face. I had a goal to be featured on a blog, and at the beginning of the month I was featured on Lemonade and Lenses. This made me realize that if you set your mind to it, it will happen and this whole journey has been that.
My amazing family has been so supportive through this journey with me, and now that I am a mom to the most precious 6 month old, it makes me even more passionate about what I do. To know that I can document my family in a creative way is so priceless to me. Being a mom has certainly kept me on my toes, but has also created even more passion for my photography and has made me realize my future with Bei Momenti in capturing those raw natural moments. Whether it be playing as a family or getting those siblings to look like they love each other for just a single moment, those are the beautiful moments in life that are tomorrow’s memories that you can treasure forever. Thank you to all those who have helped me along the way and to those who will help me, I couldn’t do it without you!
I wanted to share my 6 month old son on this post, he is as loveable and kissable as he looks! And that darn curl, we can not justify cutting it because its just to darn cute. “Todays beautiful moments are tomorrow’s beautiful memories” -Unknown
