Sometimes I have to remember I have this camera to document MY life too. Too often I get caught up with using my iPhone. It’s easy and convenient for all life’s moments. Heck, it’s easy for capturing my newest addition to the family who I’ve been going crazy capturing at my personal instagram @cherrysprig. With my first I used my professional camera all the time. Now I’m a mom of three and who has the time? That sounds hilarious coming from me... a photographer. I suppose it’s because I spend so much time with other people’s memories that the phone feels like a break. But then one day my Google Chromecast started to show all my old Flickr images with my children done with my professional camera on our living room tv. I stopped taking pictures because I thought the images weren’t trendy or snazzy enough since they never received thousands of likes or recognition . But then I realized as I looked on the screen.... who cares? I like them. I LOVE them. They’re making ME swoon. The images may not make sense to others to get 1000 likes but I love them because they’re my babies. So I shouldn’t stop. I should have never stopped because I thought it wasn’t instagram worthy. I should have never stopped taking pictures of my boys just because I don’t think I have the time. I need to make time. I need to shoot for me, too. I’m going to continue taking images of my children just as you should of your children. Continue to use your phone of course but don’t feel too proud to get professional images. It makes a huge difference believe me. You want it documented. Don’t be me. Very soon I intend to get a photographer and update our family with portraits because it’s time and long overdue. Are you?
This beautiful Elopement made me realize how much I love capturing love. To think I was so close to retiring from it and then a few sessions reminds me why I shouldn't. This couple was so filled with excitement and bubbly energy. We met up in West Chester where they got to see each other for the first time with a First Look, then headed for the courthouse to get married. What a beautiful way to celebrate. ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ No matter how you do it, I always recommend getting pictures for your wedding day. Always. Something to look back and share for the rest of your lives. Photographs are THAT important even in the age of technology advancement and mobile phones. Facebook can come and go and Instagram may be a thing of the past in a few years. But a printed canvas of your family or loved one? Timeless.⠀⠀ .⠀⠀ .⠀⠀ .⠀⠀ .⠀⠀ #westchesterphotographer #delawarecountyphotographer #delawarecountywedding #delawarecountyelopement #elopementphotographer #philadelphiaelopementphotographer #philadelphiawedding #phillybride #paweddingphotographer #philadelphiaphotographer #weddinginspiration #weddingphotography #phillyweddingphotographer #phillywedding #isaidyes #phillybrideguide #philadelphiawedding #philadelphiaweddingphotography
