We are lucky to have found our way to New Plymouth though. It is such a lovely city. Amazing for young families, spoilt with parks, playgrounds, the rugged and wild west coast beaches and the mountain just 30 minutes away. Pretty cool backdrops for photos too I might add!
For the past year, aside from running around after three little ones, I have been doing what I can to improve my photography. I have studied and refreshed on everything from posing to off-camera lighting techniques and post processing. I have also upgraded my website and branding, improving the look, flow and upgrading the images. Now, with my twin boys about to turn five and with them starting school early 2016, it's time for me to get back to capturing images for clients.
It's far to say I'm both excited and nervous. I'm sure it'll all come flooding back, it's not like I haven't been taking ample photographs of my kids during the last three years, but well... it's a little different doing it for others. Anyway, I thought I'd take it slow to begin with - offering a few families free photoshoots, just to help me find my groove again without the pressure. And then, once I am happy that all the cobwebs are dusted off, I'll invite paying clients back. Exciting times. Wish me luck!
