“Just take pictures” is the best advice I received when I started down this photography road. You can take courses, watch YouTube videos, and scroll Instagram for inspiration, but nothing replaces what you learn with a camera in your hand.
When Sam’s family came to visit, we headed to his grandparent’s house on Lake Champlain and I—of course—brought my camera! There is something really special about the pressure-free environment of taking pictures for fun. I find it is when I am most creative and when storytelling through images really comes alive.
