Daydream Job

I love my job.  I enjoy my co-workers and I often feel very gratified by the work I have done.  But on those days when I am feeling low or unproductive I like to daydream of a job that I would be good at.  All of my main passions and interest stem from things that are artistic.  Sometimes I think I am wasting my young creative juices sitting in a cubical and wish that I could share them in some way.  A lot of the times that means me coming up with music and set ideas for the Show Choir even though I am no longer a part of it or it means me taking pictures.  I am usually surprised at myself when I can pull off a good shot.  But even though I am no professional I have my moments of beauty.  So what do I daydream of?  Becoming a photographer!

Not just any kind of photographer but a birth photographer.  As someone who can not experience the miracle of birth myself I marvel over images of those women and couples who do get to go through it.  Nothing is better than a candid photo showing true emotion.  As a birth photographer your job is to melt into the background and capture all of the candid goodness.  These photos are always perfect when done in black and white.  I think it takes away any part of the medical aspects and instead leaves the raw emotions of those involved.  I would love to get a phone call in the middle of the night from a client saying the baby is coming and joining the family on their journey to new life.

Who knows maybe when I retire I will be able to fulfill this dream.  Until then I will just share these images so you too can be in awe of the power of birth and life and family.

One thought on “Daydream Job

  1. Follow your dream! My sister did and she loves her life (www.stephanierogersphotography.com). I think there is something so beautiful about birth photography. I am actually looking into having someone in the room with me when I deliver to capture these moments. Good Luck and hope you take that leap of faith!
