Today we’d like to introduce you to Katherine Spooner.
Katherine, please kick things off for us by telling us about yourself and your journey so far.
I reside in Carlsbad California with my husband and 4 children. I have been taking photos for the past couple years and love every aspect of it. Newborns, lifestyle, home, family, portraits, stills and landscape, I enjoy it all. Dance and engagement photos, anything with movement, have been something I have been totally drawn to as of lately.
Life goes to fast to not enjoy all the crazy parts of it. From marriage, children, food, tragedy, heartache, tears and pain to laughing and pure sunshine. I believe that we have lost the realness and the rawness of our life, trying all too hard to be perfect, but that is by far not my life. . My outlets are through photography and writing.
Can you give our readers some background on your art?
I take photos and try to express some kind of emotion through each family, person, kid, or animal or even landscape I capture. I think it says something if you can evoke any kind of emotion through a photo. I love it when I can see a photo before I even take it. Usually before I go into a shoot I think of some ways to get the subject to be themselves. To laugh to cry to care for to just be. And usually that takes me being completely myself I think everyone deserves photos so my passion 5 years ago as a single mom steamed this beautiful art that I get to create. Beauty from ashes in a sense. Without going through that time in my life I never really would have pushed myself into this form of art.
Any advice for aspiring or new artists?
Be who you are. If you are true to your core and to yourself then everything will fall into place. I have changed so much throughout the years and the only thing I know is that change is inevitable. Once you become comfortable with who you are you will find freedom and you will attract your key clients. For me photographing my children in the way I like to edit is most rewarding. No one is criticizing my work of my own children so I feel so at peace with it. I have always loved playing guitar, painting, doing anything g with art and so this was just a natural fit. It has taken many years to figure out what I like. My slogan is life is a work in progress. Ain’t that the truth?
