One reason I am so thrilled about my switch to full-time photographer is that I have time to do personal work now! I was drawn to photography first and foremost because I am an artist. It's important to me to keep that side of my work active along with the portraits and weddings that I shoot. I love to incorporate that artistic influence into every job, but need some time to do it for myself as well. I recently had an early morning family portrait shoot down in Sea Isle. We were done shooting by 8AM, so I took my camera back to the beach and just walked and shot for a while. I found it SO rewarding, and am pleased to share some of the results.
