Can you believe we're already done with January? There's been so much positive things happening and I'm glad to have been able to capture most of it. I've been busier but I love it, because I'm busy doing things I love to do. One of my New Year's resolutions is to make time for more creative activities such as photography, sewing, crocheting and other arts and crafts. I'm happy to report that so far, I've been making more time for my hobbies, however, with a full time job, that meant a lot of late nights. But with my recent productivity spike, I didn't mind at all. So something new I want to start doing is sharing some of my favourite photos I've taken each month. So in no particular order, here we go!
My cousin's wedding was a beautiful sight to behold. She's only 22 but I couldn't help but feel extremely proud of the woman she has become. I love this photo because it is s elegant. We wanted a photo of how beautiful her gown was from the back and everything just fell into place. She's such a natural, I can't wait to go back to Freeport to take more photos of her.
There's something about this photo that I absolutely love. The preparation of a wedding is so important because everyone gathers around the bride to make her look her best and keep her calm. In this photo, my cousin's mother and soon-to-be mother-in-law were struggling to keep her veil on. This created a lot of anxiety in her as the limo was fast approaching, but in the end, we were able to get the veil to stay in place just long enough for her to say, "I Do".
How do you not fall in love with the innocence of a child? These two photos were candidly caught during a family photo shoot for New Year's. Watching the children run around and play was a gentle reminder to keep an eye out for the moments in between.
Speaking of the innocence of a child, check out this adorable photo of my niece! She's three months old and absolutely the joy of my heart! Getting photos of her is so difficult because she always ends up just staring at the camera, but as she gets older, I'm finding a few tricks to get that great shot!
Just some of my favourite photos from the maternity shoot with my best friend. I had so much fun this day. As the photographer it's my job to make the mommy-to-be feel super confident, which can be a little difficult at times. Her body doesn't look how it used to and she often worries if it even looks like it should for a pregnant woman. Together with her daughter we brought a sense of calm and unconditional love that I think these two photos capture greatly.
Self-love is very important. I recently started making my own wigs out of boredom. I wanted to try something new and I wasn't bad at it. I call this my Dirty Diana wig because it has me feeling confident and sexy! I also loved my outfit because I never wouldn't worn stripes together like this but something about it made me feel bold and glamorous! The blouse is Primark and the skirt is from Make Me Chic.
