PHOTOGRAPHS THAT SPARK JOY

I think being a parent is the most wonderful and rewarding thing in the world… but at times it could be hard work. There is so much to do, so much to think about, so much to take care of… We are often rushing through the days and forgetting to just STOP… stop and observe, stop and live the magic of the present moment, stop and admire how beautiful these little people are… We often don’t realise how quickly the years will fly bye!… Before we know it, they won’t be kids anymore. Once our children grow up, the only thing that will be left behind is photographs. It’s the only proof of our amazing achievement of being parents and our reward for all these years of helping little babies to grow up and become great human beings…

I realised that 7 years ago, when my son was 3 years old, and I just felt like I wanted to remember those cute little faces that he was making, and was failing to do it with my very basic digital camera. That’s when I booked myself onto my very first photography course.  That was a turning point for me. I could not just stop there…

6 months later I set-up ABL Photography, making my main mission and purpose helping parents having great photographs of their kids. Now a few years down the line, I want to take this mission even further. I want to share my knowledge with the parents who feel the same way as me 7 years ago. Luckily, I’ve met a like-minded person – Helen, from the Henley Photo School. And we’ll be running our first free seminar for the parents, giving them lots of tips and tricks on how to get great pictures of their children.

I am very excited, as I wanted to do this for quite a while now, and it’s finally happening on the 26th of June at the stunning Hennerton Golf Club. I think all parents should have fantastic pictures of their kids, and I will be helping making it happen for many people. I simply can’t wait!
