I am beyond excited to finally start the Captured Forever Blog! It has been something that I have been meaning to do for a while now. I figure I will kick things off with a little bit about who we are, our background, and what we are up to now.
Here are Captured Forever Photography, we are a mother / daughter duo. If you had told me at 16 that I would be working with mother, I would have told you that you were crazy. But, fast forward 12 years and here we are! Those of you that have been following us for a while now, know that that Captured Forever Photography was founded by my mom, Michele, in 1998. As a young kid, I remember watching my mom start her new business. I remember all the excitement, all the joy, and yes, all the stress. I remember being her test model with my best friend. I remember being a prop and equipment holder at shoots. I remember filling wedding albums with prints. I remember thinking how cool it was that she was able to take photos of people for a living. I remember thinking I could never do this though.
Life did its thing though with all its twists and turns. Captured Forever Photography went into hibernation for quite some time, but in 2018 life did its thing again and gave us another twist. My mom and I decided to reboot Captured Forever. I would run the business side of things and my mom would do her creative thing. Something else happened instead though. I picked up my camera and simply fell in love with capturing the world and people around me. I dove right in, got my business license, bought all new equipment, and made Captured Forever Photography my baby.
While my mom has taken a temporary step back to focus on her other dream job of being an author in Alabama, it has been such an amazing experience carrying on her legacy that I watched her create. I am now asking those same best friends to be my test models and I am still somehow the prop and equipment holder. Luckily, a photo album stuffer isn’t a thing anymore!
I feel so lucky to get to call this my job! This business has taken off so much more than I ever could have imagined, and I have met so many amazing new clients! I am beyond excited for what lies ahead for Captured Forever Photography.
I will be sure to keep the blog up to date with all our most recent shoots, big news, special sales, and whatever else comes out way!
Here are some of my favorite shots from this season!
