We have a dream.
I’ve been told this before, but I’m truly starting to realize that the only way for this dream to ever possibly come to fruition is to vocalize it … share it … tell others about it. Caleb + I can’t keep it hidden inside our heads. It seems obvious that I need to do this when I write it out, but so often I think that we keep our dreams tucked away because we are FEARFUL of sharing them. Fearful because … you know … what if we share them + then they don’t happen? We’re fearful of failure (though failure makes us stronger + better, but that’s a topic for another day!).
One thing I know is that our dreams are DEFINITELY not going to happen unless we let others in, so today, I want to share the beginning of a dream that is still in the making + still being figured out exactly what it would/could/will look like as a part of our business story.
Our dream is to shoot Anniversary Sessions for all couples who LOVE + believe in marriage, but even more specifically, for couples who have been married 25+ years. That shooting these types of Anniversary Sessions would become something we are known for in the photography industry. When we recently posted Tom + Michele’s Anniversary Session, people who don’t even know these two sent me countless messages about how moving the session was for them. And I TOTALLY get this … there is something about two people holding fast to the commitment they made on their wedding day (+ still with so much joy 25+ years later!) that brings hope + inspiration to those who don’t even know them.
One comment I received, however, has really stuck with me because I think it encapsulates something that Caleb + I have been feeling for so long as we’ve been dreaming this dream, but didn’t know how to put into words.
The woman wrote to me, “This session is so beautiful … A truly FORGOTTEN group of people.“
Yes. Forgotten. But why? This group of people, this type of LOVE + commitment is exactly what I think all of us are craving to see more of in our newsfeeds … am I right about this?? Our dream is to make this happen.
If you can think of any couples who might be a good fit for our dream, please let us know!! We want to get them in front of our camera. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org + let’s start changing the world … one Anniversary Session at a time ????
