I'm a photographer, so I should do blog posts about photography. Right? Well, that's what I always thought. Photography is my business. But the more I thought about it, the more I realized I want to be heard. I want to tell stories with my photos but also with words. I don't like writing, because I don't think I'm good at it. So I always tried to go around it and avoid it. And then I thought, so what if I'm not an amazing writer? I'm going to make mistakes and write clumsy sentences. But I'm sure you will get over it ;)
Most of the time I will try to tell beautiful stories. Love stories. Family stories. But every once in a while it won't be so pretty. Because life isn't always pretty. Yes, we must be positive and seek out the beauty in life. But sometimes we need to see reality. We need to walk in someone else's shoes, to understand and have compassion. Next time you see someone reacting in a certain way or doing something you don't understand, you might have another perspective. And who knows, maybe you can make a difference in someone else's life. How can we make a difference when we are oblivious to others' struggles?
Here and there I'll throw in something personal (even if it's not about photography). Maybe someone can relate to my story or I can give someone hope. Besides, my photography business IS very personal. My own emotions, weaknesses and strengths have an influence on my business.
