Sometimes the moments that tell the truest stories are the sneaky ones: the little hands holding the paint brush, the feet sticking through the crib slats, the head bent over a favorite book. Un-manufactured moments like those are often the images we hold closest to heart. They don't involve direction and "say cheese" and "look over here!" They involve the subjects and the storyteller behind the lens.
This is something we stress so much at Kindred Workshop. Be the storyteller of your life. Capture the moments that show kids being kids, families making memories, and those days you never want to forget.
When beginning to learn manual mode and exploring your camera, take a deep breath, give yourself grace and embrace the season you are in. Whether that is the slow mornings with a new babe, or the sometimes crazy busy days of having multiple school age kids with lots of activities and lets be real, lots of time in the school pick up lane. Or maybe you are a business owner and have just decided to take on your own marketing and want to market your business in the best way you can. Or puppy moms! We see you! Embrace it! Every feeding, school pick up lane, new office, and slobbery puppy kiss.
Today is the day, friends. Document your story. Whatever crazy, beautiful story it may be. It must be documented. We are so excited for you and this adventure with your camera. Make it a fun one! We are always happy to answer questions you may have! Feel free to email us anytime!
