Creating Photos for Canva Pro

When I first started the transition from wedding photographer to brand photographer I was terrified. I had all these negative soundtracks going in my head about what a huge mistake I was making. Every time I photographed a wedding and was told “but you’re so good at this!” a new wave of doubt washed over me. Don’t get me wrong I appreciated the compliment and was thrilled my clients loved my work. But it just felt like they were saying “this is what you’re MEANT to do.” and “changing career paths now is a mistake.” I knew in my heart I was being called in a different direction. But I was still scared.

And then the pandemic hit. And ready or not I wasn’t photographing weddings any longer. Every bit of self doubt I had nagged at me. But I kept working at it. I kept hustling and taking new jobs. I kept learning, growing, improving, and I kept making mistakes too. I learned that I could, in fact, pivot. And for the first time in years I was prioritizing resting over being busy. I changed my soundtracks and adopted a new one. “Everything is always working out for me.”

When the email titled “Commissioned Photography for Canva” landed in my inbox I thought it was a scam. Turns out it wasn’t. And I am so grateful that I’ve had this opportunity to continue being a photographer. Especially in a way that makes a difference in so many entrepreneurs lives. Working for an internationally recognized company is the kinda thing you can share at awkward dinners when people ask “so what are you doing with your life these days?”

This post is just a few of my favorite photos from one brief I created for Canva and I am really excited to share more collections that I work on in the future!
