Exisit in Photographs...a campaigain inspired by Sue Bryce

Sue Bryce has a vision...to help women to love and value themselves, to recognize their own beauty, and to have amazing photographs to celebrate all of this. Along with many photographers across the world Sue urges everyone (but especially women) to exist in photographs. Exist in photographs for yourself. Exist in photographs for your children.

When did you last have your photograph taken?

 

For us it had been about 3 years, maybe 4 actually, since our last family photo. Sure there were a few smart phone shots, and plenty of photos of the munchkin, but, when it came to a beautiful family photo I could hang on the wall, that we could look back on for years and remember that moment, and that I could pass on....well, they looked dated.

 

Coming this weekend...how did we make sure we exist in photographs?

Behind the Lens - My Assistant & Motivation

This week in behind the lens I really wanted to introduce you to a little more of why I do what I do and my dreams for the future. In order to do this, I need to introduce you a little further to my (usually) eager behind the scenes assistant and the motivation she gives me...none other than my beautiful 7 year old daughter Alyssa.  

If you're like most people you are thinking...what the heck does a daughter have to do with photographing amazing women and their wedding day?

Let's rewind to about a year ago. If you came in during that time you would find a bubbly, beautiful, string bean of a 6 year old running around my home. The problem was that when she looked in the mirror or into herself, that's not what she saw.

At 6 years old she had decided something. She had decided that she was ugly, she was fat, and that she hated herself. This wasn't just a moment and it broke my heart. How could such a vibrant healthy young girl think such things about herself?  I looked in the mirror and realized that the media, her friends at school, and the society we live in weren't completely to blame. I had never shown her how to be naturally beautiful, how to be confident, and how to love yourself. We both made changes. A year later we are still working hard to help her recognize her own beauty, her own value, and her abilities.

This was on my mind constantly when I was teaching, when I was meeting with clients, and when I was photographing. I knew Alyssa wasn't the only person in the world to feel this way but it amazed me to see how many women of all ages are afflicted with this same lack of confidence, poor body image, and low sense of self worth. During this time I was also introduced to the fabulous Sue Bryce through an online training resource called CreativeLive.

Sue has inspired me to recognize and capture the beauty in every woman in stunning artwork that will everyday remind them of their own beauty and value. I want to inspire others to love themselves, to be confident, and to value themselves and all they have to offer.

I dream of a gallery and studio where every size, shape, and colour of beauty is celebrated in art. Where woman can come in to be pampered, to have fun, and to step in front of my lens as we create artwork that will be cherished for generations as they let their true beauty shine!

Family Portraits with Jeff, Heidi and the girls!

Family is important to many of the people I have the privileged of photographing and the same is true of today's featured family.  

Heidi & Jeff have 3 daughters Hunter, Abby, & Olivia. This family shares many things but primarily a love of the outdoors and the game of soccer.

I spent a great evening out in Kawanis Park here in London, Ontario getting to know them all better, seeing their personalities shine through, and watching them enjoy some time kicking the ball around as the sun faded from the sky.

 

As in any family, there's always one or more people that have a little trouble keeping a real smile going for a shoot. My solution? Laughter...The more they laugh, the more they relax and the genuine smiles shine through.

 

And as always, the kids must play! No matter the style of portrait, no matter the location, there must always be an element of fun!

Renovation & Renewal: Month One - Relationships

I can't tell you how excited I am to share this week's post with you.  

One of the areas of my life that I value above all others is my relationships. Two in particular mean the world to me. My relationship with my daughter Alyssa. And my relationship with my wonderful spouse Ross.

London, Ontario Photographer Rebecca Nash and Family

 

These two people form the foundation to my entire life and without their love and support I would cease to be the person I am.

 

The problem is...I've been so busy and stressed that I've taken them for granted. I've failed to nurture these relationships the way I know I should. I am not proud of this fact. While I've lost balance in many areas of my life, this is the area where it pains me most to admit my own failures, but, until I admit those failures I cannot move forward.

 

Starting this month, I'm taking action to make sure these most prized people in my life feel my love and support at all times. This means committing to three major things.

 

1) A monthly date night where Ross and I can get away from the phones, the computers and the distractions of our daily lives to connect, enjoy each others company, and create happy memories that help us through the tough times.

 

2) A nightly reading time and monthly date night (or day) with my daughter Alyssa. A time everyday where she has my undivided attention as we snuggle up close and share an adventure with the characters in our books. Plus a day when we create the itinerary for the two of us to spend dedicated time together doing the things we love.

 

3) At least one family day per month when the three of us share a day of fun and family time. It can be playing board games on the living room floor, chasing butterflies through the butterfly conservatory, playing in the park, or going on a new adventure. As long as we share the experience together!

 

What commitments have you made to value your relationships with those your treasure most?Yours Enthusiastically Rebecca - Rebecca Nash Photography

Ideas:

2) Set out a notebook somewhere convenient with a sign asking friends and family to share their stories and advice - Great reading for years to come and a little piece of your family history all in one!
3) Create your own mini notebooks for each table with questions for your guests to answer - ex. favourite place to go out for a romantic dinner, best place for a couples vacation
How do you absorb all the advice your family has to share?

Sneak Peek: Family Fun Portraits with Heather, Mike and Brandon

I'm always thrilled to have a munchkin in the studio, but the challenge of working with a friend, wedding vendor, and his camera shy wife always peaks my interest! We had a blast playing in the studio, changing outfits, arguing over hockey teams (go leafs go!), and enjoying Brandon's smiles. Thanks to Heather, Mike from Two Men and a Tent, and their son Brandon for joining me in the studio for a fun filled evening of portraits, and a great time enjoying the images together. I look forward to getting more great shots as Brandon grows!
