Why I Love What I Do | Boston Newborn and Family Photographer

If you have ever wondered how photography has become my passion, you are about to find out. Below are just some of the many reasons why I love what I do. I wouldn’t change my job for anything in the world!

Why I Love What I Do

1. Photography has changed how I see things.

I notice colors, textures, flowers, trees, people, shapes, and light in a way most people never see them. I can’t stop observing. Most of the time while I am watching a movie, I am studying the light instead of paying attention to the plot.

2. I pay more attention to the beauty around me.

Even the most mundane object can become beautiful when you photograph it in a creative way. Many photographers love their job because they develop a fascination with the world around them by viewing it through new eyes.

3. It’s an amazing creative outlet.

I get the chance to put a little bit of who I am into each photo that I take. Anyone can click a camera’s buttons but not everyone can truly make a photo come to life!

4. It’s a challenge.

Creating amazing photos that capture the magic of everyday life doesn’t come without hard work, dedication, and imagination. There is always something new to explore and a new way to take the same photos. It’s a job that never gets boring.

5. I get to meet new people all the time.

As a Boston newborn and family photographer, I get to know beautiful families, and not only from New England but from all the states! Getting to know someone new is a part of the process of bringing someone’s personality through in a photo. It also makes my job a lot more fun!

6. The flexibility is great.

Being a full-time photographer means I get to work my own hours. This doesn’t mean it’s a laid-back profession though. I am always aiming to perfect my craft, taking on new challenges, and helping my clients achieve the perfect pictures.
