What I Wish I Knew: Keeping Your Unique Creative Voice is Key

What I Wish I Knew: Keeping Your Unique Creative Voice is Key

I once studied fine art photography at one of the most competitive art programs in the country. As students, we underwent daily series of grueling critiques about our work; why is it relevant or unique; how does the execution of the work reinforce the concept; and what made it specifically yours? I had a drive and passion for making art, and after graduation I moved to Spain to continue broadening my horizon. When I returned to the States I started photographing wedding and portraits, and I was able to make a decent living. After a few years of surviving the rush of a busy season and diving right into the next one, the curious art student I once was seemed have to slowly disappeared. The everyday grind of staying afloat in a sea of talented photographers and inspiring images, had led my business to become just that: a business. What I wish I knew then is that keeping your unique creative voice at the center of everything is key.

Travel With Photographers: Sara De Monbrun

Travel With Photographers: Sara De Monbrun

Recently I spent 22 days navigating my way through Europe. After previously exploring the major powerhouse cities, I was eager to dive a bit deeper into Europe’s less traversed gems. Budapest, Hungary topped that list and by no means did it disappoint. The architecture was the first thing that drew me to this city, namely its waterfront, gothic-goddess parliament building: Országház. I just had to get there. From Rome we took a quick, one-hour, flight to Budapest on Ryan Air for just over $100 USD. We hit the ground running - Expelling the most out of our short 4 ½ days there.

Capturing Timeless Maternity Photos with Keziah Kelsey

Capturing Timeless Maternity Photos with Keziah Kelsey

As a portrait photographer that specializes in Motherhood & Young Family, much of my work involves maternity imagery. I think this season of life is amazing and SO important to capture on film but lots of new moms couldn’t feel less into the idea!  I get so many moms pregnant with their second child telling me they wish they had just gone ahead and made maternities during their first pregnancy. They usually say they didn’t feel beautiful at the time, were so uncomfortable or just didn’t see a good reason to do it at the time but now have a lot of regret over missing out on those memories.
