Friday Feel Good Promotions
one moment can change a day,
one day can change a life
one life can change the world
~ Gautama Buddha
When I had my first son I was just 16...... I had finished up working at KFC which most of the time to get to work I walked an hour to work & an hour home after an 8 hour shift, as by the time I paid my rent & food bills there wasn't enough money for me to catch a bus to work. Back then KFC did breakfast shifts so I will be forever grateful to my best friend for coming to pick me up at 6 am in the mornings to run me to work before he had to get ready for school!!
When Bohdi was born I had everything he needed & I had a precious little baby who was now my whole world. I didn't have a tv or even a washing machine.... I can still remember hand washing all his cloth nappies & clothes for the first few weeks of his life until l was given a 20 year old twin tub washing machine.
The idea of having professional photographs taken like the ones I take now.... well it was just purely unfathomable when all I had was enough money to pay the rent each week & enough left over to cover the very basics of life. The best I could do was redeem the bounty voucher that came from the hospital.... 1 free photograph that I didn't choose... but boy do I treasure it.
Of course I wasn't in the cave man era back then.... I had a kodak film camera that when I could afford it I would buy film. 24 pictures to really take the best I could and develop when I could get the shopping items on sale to have enough left over to develop the film.... most of them blurry & out of focus but in my heart I can see them perfectly in focus because I relive those moments every time I look at them..... 20 years on I can still remember my precious baby boy even if the pictures are blurred.
THIS IS MY DRIVING FORCE.... this is why when I saw a photograph taken by Kelly Brown my whole world turned upside down. Until that moment in my mind baby photographs were Anne Geddes... then I saw a portrait created by Kelly & I knew that I would sell my soul to have artwork like that of my babies, that I NEEDED to create artwork like that for people so they didn't have the regrets that I did.
What does this have to do with anything?....
You might be asking this about now.... Well it has everything to do with my Friday Feel Good Promotion...... I have decided to get back to what has driven me to make this my profession & embrace WHY I DO WHAT I DO! I started this journey to help as many people as I could to have beautiful artwork of their babies. Along the way of course I have grown as an artist..... my business has grown & I have developed a skill that has required a lot of time & money..... I have created an experience & developed a style that is very unique to me. One of the hardest parts of being an artist is knowing your worth & believing you are worth your time..... this sometimes makes seem like you are out of people budgets no matter how much you want to be affordable to everyone.
