Hi friends + followers! 🦋
I think it’s time to come on and introduce myself to y’all! I’m Mariah, I’m a 22 year old, that has a love for capturing precious moments. Lover of sunlight / chai lattes / dogs / family / Genuine connections ⚡️ .
First i want to start by thanking all of you. You guys don’t know how much it means to me that YOU are making my dreams a reality. It wasn’t until the last year that I’ve truly gotten into photography. I mean- I’ve been taking photos of people for the last couple of years- but this last year, I’ve really grown my business.
As far back as i can remember, nothing ever sparked my love that way that photography does. I went to college with absolutely no plan, no career path, and no expectations. I went back and forth with thinking of things to major in- and nothing ever worked. Nothing ever made me excited about a choosing a “career path”. .
Last year i got my degree in behavioral sciences, which has absolutely no meaning at all- well i mean, besides the fact that i was the first in my family to get a college degree. But the actual subject, no idea what it even means😂
I was destined to be a photographer, from the second i shot my first wedding i went home hysterically crying telling my mom i finally knew exactly what i wanted to do for my career. I’m not kidding. This was it. Capturing moments, that people can relive for the rest of their lives? The most IMPORTANT day of their lives. A day spent literally because two people are in love? And i get to capture every single moment of that?? YUP. .
My point is this- follow your dreams. “Work” a job that doesn’t feel like your working. Love what you do, and put all of your heart into it if you’re passionate enough. This was the best decision I’ve ever made. Here’s to 2019 and to all of you my sweet loves! ✨
