I do have a personal blog where I blog very regularly, but this morning I had the urge to talk my photography fans. You guys were there from the beginning of my business and I thought that since it is almost the end of the year, it would be good to Thank You all!
I did my first portrait session in 2010 when a friend, Stine, in Redding California where I lived ,saw my passion and decided that she is going to help me make my dreams come true. To this day I still contact her if I get stuck on a shot that I don’t understand.! Thank you Stine! Here is a shot of that session of Cierra and Jason:
My business,Linda Fourie Photography was born when a crazy, pregnant friend of mine came to visit me end of February this past year. We were chatting away about my passion for photography when she got that look in her eyes and I knew it is over. “Shoot us!” Nervously I agreed, just to have the best experience of my life! Till to this day, Maternity sessions are right up there for me!
This last Saturday I celebrated the wedding of my other photographer teacher! Nielen was the first one who told me how to hold a DSLR Camera and what to look for way back in 2007. I had a “mik and drukkie” and everything was shot through that, but she had the monster of a camera and our coffee dates developed in a ” oh wow, that is a awesome shot!” moments. At her wedding I was chatting away with a girl about photography and this sentence dropped out of my mouth: ” I love shooting weddings! I love the emotion, the passion, the love and the beauty of the whole day!” I have realized that even standing on your feet for 14 hours does not kill the thrill of shooting and celebrating this new marriage. I come back home energised! Here is a shot of my first wedding of this 2012/2013 season:
I love to celebrate people and have found that photography is the best way of expressing this love. It captures the people the way I see them: free, adored and 100 percent alive. Thank you to each of my clients for this past year and a special thanks to all the people who helped me along to a place where this new world of photography is becoming familiar. I love this space and can’t wait to meet with all my new clients!
Have a look at my facebook page and “like” to stay in the loop of my passion!
