I’m currently in my bed, in my home that I share with my girlfriend, sipping on a green tea with honey. I climbed back in after a morning meditation. I’m laughing at thought of my 18 year old self seeing who I've become, because it’s not a life I really thought I’d ever lead.

2018 was my first full year as a solo freelance photographer, was I totally overwhelmed and filled with self doubt? I sure was! I felt like getting a 9-5 job on multiple occasions but I knew deep down that this is what I was meant to be doing. Photography is the thing that brings me all the joy. I feel so content with a camera in my hand, photographing people, telling stories, it’s my passion.

It wasn’t until my late teens that I picked up a camera. I did one of those Mac photoshoot experiences for my friends birthday and I fell in love with how they made you feel. I knew then I wanted to make people feel that way too, it felt like magic. From then I started to dream of being published in magazines and paid to shoot dress collections and editorials. I dreamt of a life were I worked for myself, taking photos, and going on adventures.

It’s 2019 and I’m pretty sure my younger self would be mega impressed with that fact that those dreams are now a reality and things I’ve accomplished.

I now have new dreams. I started dreaming up Megan Elle branding during the summer after a chat with my lovely friend Jackie. After a couple months of not being sure about taking the leap of owning a second business I decided that it would be stupid not to. After all if something excites you then it’s got to be worth a shot, right? So here I am, first blog post of my brand new branding photography business. I’m so looking forward to what else this year will bring me! I’m excited to meet more lovely people and help tell their stories.

So dream big, dream often because dreams are just plans after all.
