‘A little LOCAL LOVE’ started as a personal project for me in 2013. It was a way for me to step out of my shy comfort zone, introduce myself and learn about a few different Niagara based small businesses such as myself. My first two handfuls of business showcases were wedding related vendors. I thought this would be beneficial to my couples, who repeatedly ask me for referrals. On a wedding day, I often get to photograph some of the most beautiful, detail orientated stationery, decor, flowers, and so forth. I wanted this project to be a way for me to put faces and recognition to those intriguing pieces of work. So the idea was to meet with the business owners, and through imagery and conversation, learn all about their companies, visions, goals and aspirations, often witnessing and photographing them in the mist of their creations.
Little did I know, that this project would bring with it so much inspiration for me personally. Listening to others beam about living out their dreams has had a huge impact on my heart. Anything is truly possible! All you need is a plan, handwork, sacrifice and the courage to keep pushing forward.
I plan on doing a little more work with ‘A little LOCAL LOVE’ in 2015 but my focus will change from wedding related vendors, to simply just local businesses and talent in general. Boutiques, cafes, little shops, home based businesses, artists and outward. If you are interested in setting a date, I would love love love to listen to your story and showcase you through my imagery and words written on my blog!
Please don’t be shy… reach out.
