For those following my social media, you might notice a few of my older photos being featured on my Instagram profile and my Facebook page right about now - and here on the blog as well. I thought it might be nice to re-visit some of my previous work before diving headlong into some newer stuff that I have waiting in the wings to share (and I'm pretty excited about the new stuff, btw!)
I came to realise that when I started sharing my work online, I really focused on the blog (which is apparently not a terrible idea now, what with Facebook and Instagram's algorithm shenanigans), I especially didn't share many photos from my "big girl camera" on Instagram in particular. Initially I really wanted to just have phone photos over there - I don't know, it kind of felt a little bit like "cheating" to include photos I'd taken on my DSLR, but now that I'm taking on more work I find Instagram has become a kind of mini portfolio for clients to see what I do and so I've been featuring more of my non-phone photos on my profile. It's pretty easy to tell (usually!) which is a phone photo and which has been taken on a DSLR, but if you're wondering, I always hashtag the Canon stuff in my DSLR shots as a way of identifying them.
For example, the above are from this wedding, where I also kinda, sorta got all poetical and whatnot in writing it up. That's probably not really my style, to be honest - I think it was the way everyone else was doing it and so that's how I thought I had to do it too. I guess it can sometimes take a little while until you feel comfortable enough finding and sharing your own "voice" online. These days I keep it much more simple - basically what you're reading in my posts now is pretty much my internal monologue (for better or for worse!)
After my photographic trip down memory lane, I'll be sharing a really special social media session and a really special family session, so stay tuned over the next few weeks if you're keen to check them out!
