One Perfect Moment {Editing Life} | Life

One Perfect Moment is all about those moments, big or small, that make you wish they'd last forever. Those moments you want to stop in time, when everything feels perfect, even for just a split-second. Snapshots of the mind. Moments to treasure forever.

Silence. Everyone in the house is sleeping.

It's late. Very late.

But still. I sit at my computer.


Last weekend I had the privilege of shooting a very special family and their precious newborn baby.

All families and newborns are precious, of course. But this one is extra special.

They are my friends.

And I know the hard road they've traveled to be where they are today.

It was a paid shoot. A job. Money changed hands and I was expected to produce a professional result.

I sat at my desk, in the early hours of the morning, working.

But I wasn't really working. There was no reason why I had to be editing those photos that night. When it comes to family photography, most of the time, people don't expect less than a 48 hour turn around time.

I could have gone to bed. Could have left it till the morning.

But I couldn't.

Because sitting there, going through those lovely photos, tweaking them, touching them up, making them just right...

I wasn't really working.

I was pursuing my passion.

And you can't put a price on that.

Or a bed-time.

I love this post Kylie. I'm the same with writing (which I wrote about at Smarter Happier today!). Sometimes it does not feel like work at all - the passion takes over and it makes you feel free and satisfied and happy and fulfilled. Will have to get my act together and join you in future x
Oh Ky they are just adorable, a labour of love!

Beautiful photos!
I both admire and am jealous of the way you've found your THING, and are getting to work, doing it.

That first family photo is just so natural, it's gorgeous. I love that you are so into what you are doing, and even more so that it is your passion. You are truly one of the lucky ones.

Agree whole heartedly with Alicia x
Gorgeous Kylie!
I am reminded of that saying "do something you love and you'll never work a day in your life"... I think you have found that!!
Here's hoping I do soon as well!!
Amazing's true that when you love your job, it doesn't feel like work at all!
