In the formative years of my business I went through the most difficult year of my life. My dad was dying of cancer, my husband was unemployed, we were broke, and I was our sole income provider. We lost everything to start anew and in that process I discovered the importance of authentic joy and happiness in photography. Learning how to step away from forced poses freed me to capture people just as they are. While I was scared and afraid in my personal life, I used photography to find joy. I had become obsessed with finding ways to get my clients to loosen up, be carefree, and have fun during their sessions with me. I adopted a method of un-posing...posing my clients and then infusing laughter and movement to capture the images that I ached for. These are the images that I wanted with my dad before he passed away. My mentality is what we do matters because it does, it really does. I want to talk about why that is, our responsibility as photographers, my methodology with unposing, and how to create a brand that literally bursts with happiness.
