Looking back at this photoshoot, it’s hard to believe that we almost didn’t let it happen. We were simply having a few beers on this gorgeous Sri Lankan beach with our friends while looking for a few spots to surf – and as the light started to dip, we had the small idea of doing an impromptu couple shoot with them.
It was 50/50. Should we do it? Yeah or Nah? Yeah alright. And that was absolutely the right thing. Not only did we have a super good time for the next 30 mins of however long the light lasted, we actually came back with some pretty awesome shots to share!
So, the message here is to just do it. If you have the chance to shoot something, do it. At some point, picking up a camera can start to feel like a chore. Like just “work again”. But sometimes you need to get through that moment and let it remind you of how fun it can actually be.
It’s an amazing thing to turn your passion into your career. It really is. But it’s a challenge to keep it a passion throughout the career :)
