Having photographs taken professionally is vanity?
Through a conversation I had with a friend, I realized some people think having photographs taken professionally is a kind of vanity. My friend is a modest person who doesn’t post many of her photos in public. I never thought of that and It’s interesting to hear people’s thoughts.
I don’t think having photographs taken professionally is being vain. I had a client came to the photo shoot and brought some photographs which were taken 20 to 30 years ago by other photographers. It was amazing to see her growth and different lift stage, her appearance changes over the year, she becomes matured and lost her baby weight. The documentary of her life just amazing and beautiful. That’s why I love my job because I find it is very meaningful and I get to photograph, document people’s life and show them their beauty. Imaging the photographs I take of you now, 10 years later they would be the beautiful memories, 50 years later they would be the family legacies, 100 years they will be museum collections. That’s how I see portrait photographs and that’s what I hope my work would be. My photographs now are all in museum grade paper, my photographs are going to outlive me and outlive the person in the photographs.
I photograph women in different ages, sizes and shapes, but it’s never about that. I love seeing people unfold in front of the camera and shine. I believe everyone can do it. The transformation we do in our studio just incredible. If you haven’t being professionally photographed, don’t be shy, get in touch with me, it’s a new experience that you will enjoy.
