2016 Recap | Portrait + Fashion

As much as I love capturing people's love stories, working in the studio capturing portraits and fashion is where I thrive artistically. I crave this type of work so much! It's definitely not easy balancing weddings and portrait work but it's totally worth it.

Quote from my 2016 Love Stories Recap:

"What a WILD year it’s been. Personally, 2016 started low but ended on a super high! From getting married to my best friend to moving to a new city, to moving into a HOUSE to getting published more and becoming a traveling destination photographer. SO thankful. But it def hasn't been all glamorous...2016 started off pretty rough. 

I was pretty obsessed with putting my identity into my business. Like I had this HUGE pride in myself and my work and if my business failed, then I failed as a person. How do you create work for others with all that insecurity and pressure on yourself? 

So thankful for learning how to create freely without all the pressure to do a fabulous job. Now creating images for my clients bring me so much JOY and if my business completely disappeared today, I’m going to be A-OKAY. Don't put all that pressure on yourself to create the best thing ever. Create freely. And every success is a GIFT!"

In The Studio With World-Wide Traveler, Robert Vance

When I first started shooting in the studio, I was totally not a fan. The idea of having a backdrop be so simple felt pretty boring. You can only have so many backdrop colors and poses with your subject! However after learning how to manipulate the light well in the studio, I started to fall in love with having total control of all light sources. It forced me to be creative on a whole other level with light and your subjects. Does anyone relate??

Roberto is one of the first friends I made when I moved to JC 8 years ago. This dear friend of mine just got back from working the past Olympics in Brazil! He actually got to swim in the Olympic pool for ten minutes. He is now currently spending his time in Spain teaching english to kids!

Being in the season to where all your friends are around the country/world can be so difficult. However I cannot wait to visit him when I'm going to London next summer!

 

xoxo, Katherine
