Man oh man have I been busy ever since I left for my destination wedding in Colorado! After arriving home from Colorado the next day my job was in the New Orleans Superdome. The rest of the week was more corporate jobs, studio sessions and so much more following up until today's post. I am literally creating the time for this blog post today because I feel so guilty not being able to make a post in the last week or so. What I love about my 21 year career up until now, is the diversity I created within my brand. GK photography is highly known around New Orleans and I love every minute of it. For many years I specialized in weddings and through these events other opportunities always seem to arise. I love seeing my high school seniors become my wedding clients, then we photograph their kids and the cycle seems to repeat itself. I love my commercial work because the level of excellence which these companies expect is always top notch. I love pushing my knowledge as far as it can go.
To give you an idea of my diversity, let me share the kind of jobs I had just last week. Last week I had a corporate event which included a seven hour time lapse in the Superdome, before that was a destination wedding in Colorado, then we had a newborn baby in the studio, and in between all the sessions I have to process the images for sales sessions and lab fulfillments. Did I also mention that all of this work is within the realm of only two people, my wife Elizabeth and I. Elizabeth basically is all of the front of the house and I am all of the back of the house. She answers the phones, schedules clients, follows up with emails and delivers outstanding customer service.
I love the diversity in my business because I am literally never bored! Any job that comes to our business I am proud to say I am very good at accomplishing. I never really wanted to only specialize in one field such as weddings or just children portraiture. My soul needs to constantly create and I am proud to say, that is exactly what exists in my life today. I think one of the most fun aspects of my career is learning how to create beautiful food photography. How can you not love the diverse styles of food we have here in New Orleans? As you follow my blog I will weekly show you my diverse life and imagery that is created from it. Today we have a child session and two sales sessions from family portraits we did on location. So as you follow me on Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat and Facebook… Just know that those posts get squeezed in between all the other aspects of our day. I cannot wait to see what tomorrow brings me. :)
I love my job. I love my diverse life. I love my family. To me this is the definition of "Living the Dream." -GK
