ah, this question makes me smile and laugh at the same time! and i’ll tell you why! first because if you are a frequent reader, it’s obvious that you know this. second, because i have an image right here on the left that says “my work as a lifestyle photographer”. third, because it has been such a fulfilling journey that i couldn’t be happier with the results. fourth, i could not have imagined three years ago that i would be building my photography business, based on a lifestyle approach. that was a mystery for me back then, when i worked as a human resources consultant at a huge consulting firm. i sold my very first fine art print in september 2010, three months after i opened my first etsy shop. one month later i got a message from someone in germany asking to buy one photo from me for a music event. i thought it was a joke at first. on the following week, i had someone in the united states buying 4 fine art prints at the same time and until today i remember the joy of receiving such order.
it’s amazing how little things can build for greater things that come on our way. it’s amazing how since that september 2010, i have opened another three online shops, created another two blogs, started my business as a lifestyle photographer, and accept now and then web-design projects. and everything started with a little point-and-shoot from canon and a huge love for photography, and now this love has grown more than i ever imagined, my knowledge has developed on a large scale and i’m buying professional equipment.
so this was another way of sharing with you how blessed i feel, though i still feel that i’m running against time, to see if i can put myself up on my two feet, making a living out of this lifestyle photography business on time. and also to share that if you like my work and have been following me through this blog, no matter where you live, i can be there for your moments. either if it’s your children you would like to have on a session, or your wedding, your small ceremony with just a couple of friends, your pregnancy, you and your friends, just you or your pet, i’m here for you.
one of my favourite quotes is “love is all around”, because in a world that lives so fast, emotions and love need to be praised. and through my camera, i can keep those memories alive. i can make you smile when you look at your pictures and that is a promise! i love to play with the light, specially the golden light from the sunset. i love to create dreamy images like if you lived in a world that doesn’t exist, but it’s close to possible as you can imagine.
i’ll be there for you no matter what, to capture what’s important in your life, what really counts, what makes you go on! and this is my mission as a lifestyle photographer. to capture your special moments through your life, so that when you’re really old and look at those pictures you can close your eyes and relive all those emotions again, like if they had happened just the day before. so share your ideas with me, and let’s create a story together! share your crazy dreams and let’s make images about those dreams and share them with the world. don’t be shy, i want to be part of your story, your life story.
