I have loved taking pictures for as long as I can remember. Hate getting my own picture taken, but put me behind the camera and I'm a happy girl. There is something about getting that perfect shot that gives me such a rush. Sometimes I don't see it until hours later when I am reviewing my pics. Sometimes I just know as I'm clicking the button that picture is gonna be pure magic. This one I didn't see until hours later, after all my kids were in bed and I was editing all the photos I had taken that day.
When I saw it, I gasped. I was thrilled with how it turned out. I actually did zero editing to this one.
Others that I take, I just know. I know as I am watching the moment unfold in front of me that I have to capture it. Like this one. You don't have to be a professional photographer to capture the intense love my husband has for our kids. It's just there all the time. But I saw this moment and had to get it, and its still one of my favorite pictures I've ever taken. It has an instagram filter on it.
My husband bought me a DSLR camera for mothers day this year. Pretty much my dream camera, and the gift to end all gifts. I have started to take more pictures and fallen in love all over again with the whole process. I have taken pictures of dance recitals, families, scenery shots, everything I can just to get a grasp of how every aspect of my camera works. I would LOVE if this could turn into a career for me some day. I can't imagine anything more amazing than doing something you LOVE and actually getting paid to do it.
So to get the ball rolling I started a facebook page to share some of my pictures. Facebook.com/AngelKincaidPhotography. I have been shooting some pictures for events and other things just to get some experience. I have some more shoots set up for the coming weeks. I can only hope people love my work as much as I do and actually wanna have me take photos for them some day!
I'm gonna leave you with this one last picture. My absolute favorite one I've ever taken. I did no editing to it because everything was just perfect about it (in my eyes anyway ;))
