For those that follow me on Instagram, I asked you if I should create a separate profile for my photography work that isn’t my wedding/portrait work. Everyone said to continue doing what I’m doing.
I don’t know why, but I’ve felt like I should be separating my wedding and portrait work on Instagram. After feeling conflicted about not being my full-self online and yet also not feeling like I shouldn’t be my full self online, I opted to go all in. Fuck it, right?
I get annoyed seeing this highly curated feeds on Instagram. Yes, weddings and portraits are my main bread and butter, but truth is, photography, in general, is what fuels me. I don’t photograph everything, but what I do photograph has a special place in my heart.
So, I’m done hiding. I’m done trying to curate my life on social media. I’m just going to throw my full self out there on Instagram. My photography website is just for my wedding and portrait work. My personal website is for everything else related to me and what I care about. And my Instagram will be treated the same way as a general hub for me. I’m done stressing out over how to curate my feed.
These photos felt like the perfect place to begin my not-give-a-fuck-anymore photos to share on Instagram. Restless had their farewell show after about 6 years of not playing. I never had the chance to photograph them back in the day, so it was great to be hired to photograph this incredible night.
Band photography always takes me back to my roots of where I started as a photographer. I love photographing the passion of people whether it’s bands performing or the passionate love between a couple. I blend my crazy way of documenting bands with photographing events and people. It’s chaos and I absolutely love it.
So let’s raise a glass to not giving a fuck. My IG feed is about to be a mixture of whatever the fuck I care about. It will be a clear reflection of who I am – not just a curated business feed.
