Diary of a Mumtographer | Intro | Bec Peterson

This year I am going to share more about myself with you.

 

 

I am going to blog about my life, my loves, my crazies and all the stuff in between.

 

I want to be honest and raw and show you what drives me.

 

I want to go back to the basics.

 

To show you why I fell in love with photography. Like REALLY fell in love with it.

 

& why I am so willing to leave my family to document yours... 

 

 

Hi my name's Bec!! I am a wife, a mother and a photographer. 

 

I love life and feel so blessed to be living it. 

 

For the longest time I put work first and I started to fall out of love with photography. I let clients dictate my creativity simply because I was too scared that I would loose paid work if I followed my heart. I would be so flat out "chasing the dream" that I lost sight of the fact that I was already living it.

 

I would spend hours upon hours locked in my office, neglecting my husband and my daughter and I began to wonder why I chose to hurl myself face first into the world of professional photography.

 

 

Because I was attracting the type of clients that didn't suit my brand I decided to re-name and change my image and I really began focusing more on what drove me in the first place... and that was an unscripted human connection.

I know it sounds cliche, but it's the truth.

 

There's nothing I love more than that feeling you get looking back on old photographs... and I bet you do too!

 

This time around I chose to do things a little differently. I even brought my home office out of "the office" so I could still spend time with my family as I worked.


I began using my camera the way I did in the beginning. I used it to document the things I loved & the emotions I saw.

I stopped caring about perfection and I just followed the vibe.

 

 

Fast forward to now.

 

I still love what I do except now I want to incorporate EVERYTHING I love into one.

I love capturing moments.

I love helping people gain self-confidence.

I love unexpected kindness.

I love my family.

And I love my food.

 

I want to share all of this with you. But I also need to do this for myself.

I have hard drives full of other people's families but I have very little photographs of my own. And when it comes to photographs of me with my husband and/or children, well they are close to non-existent.

 

So come along and enjoy the ride. Watch me grow as I share my experiences, my work and all the other bits and pieces xx
