So word on the street is that blogs are the new black…or is it orange I don’t know anymore. You see I’ve had some time off in the last couple of years in the ‘keeping up with it all’ department while I started a family.
I wasn’t sure what to start my first blog post about (geez is that what you guys even call it?) but I figured you out there might like to know who I am and what I am about if you don’t already know any of that.
I am an RMIT graduate who dove straight into the glamour photography industry while still at uni. Back then it was all sparkly and new and I loved every minute of it. I was told in my very first few months that I would hate working in the glamour industry, but what I would learn along the way would be priceless. That right there is the quote I will never forget. It will ring in my ears like one of those phrases your mum went on about when you were younger.
I did. I learnt so much. Things that you don’t even realise that you learn until one day 10 years later you think back and apply it to what you’re doing.
I left that after a good 4-5yrs and started a whole new avenue of photography. Real Estate. And I have come to love this. I have clients right across Melbourne who I shoot for weekly. I launched Logan Photography in 2009 and then started my family in 2012 with the arrival of my eldest son Jack who is now 3. I was married the following year in 2013 to my best friend and partner of 5yrs, and my second son Max arrived late last year.
Someone asked me the other day what my ‘game plan’ was. Game plan you say? I need one of those? I guess I never really thought about it. I was all tied up with swelling feet and an aching hip while pregnant with my babies, that I never stopped to think about what I wanted for my business in the future.
I do however know I need to be realistic about it because I have two kids…ok three if you include the eldest one, sometimes known as my husband.
So it got me thinking about it. I don’t want to be a millionaire, I never have. I always said I would rather be in love than rich. But we all want to be comfortable right? I just want to get myself known to a few more of you lovely folk.
I was raised in a coastal country town in far east gippsland called Mallacoota. So I am used to travelling a few km’s to get anywhere. I love photographing families and babies and even the odd wedding here and there. So keep me in mind next time you are thinking about photos. It can be posey, in matching outfits if you like, or it can be captured as I see you in a location you love or is close to your heart in what you woke up in. Up to you.
The prices on my website are what they are. I’m not going to try and up-sell to you later and charge you a fortune. Ask questions, I like to do that a lot. I’ll do my best to answer them. I am not going to be stalking you by phone three months after you made an enquiry trying to lock you into a date. That’s not what I am about. I can also come to your house and set up a studio in your house if that suits you better.
